Re: the led of protection is on in my amplifier z1000d

Maybe you have defective speaker! try to cut out your speaker from the amplifier then you power on again! if the protection is in again you have defective power output! transistors or mosfet transistors.

My phoenix gold x200.4 amp turns on but the protect light keep on flashing

  • What does it mean when the LEDs flash on my amplifier?
    With most recently produced Phoenix Gold amplifiers, a flashing/blinking LED is an indication that the unit is in protect mode, usually due to an overcurrent condition caused by an internal short, external short (speakers), or low impedance. Overheating will also cause the amplifier to shut down temporarily.

    If amplifier remains in protect mode, power down the amplifier, disconnect the speakers, and power up again. If LEDs continue to flash, there is probably an internal problem with the amplifier that will require service attention to fix.

    Protect led flashing with hit of bass

    Try a bigger amp. This one wants to be turned down. But seriously the protect can act like sort of a clipping device when the unit is trying to amplify out of a certain range. The transistors may be getting weak and need to be replaced. That said I would move this amp to the midrange or the highs and get a little bigger amp for you low low's. Hope that helps.

    What does the orange light protection mean

    Disconnect all speaker connections and rca cables. Leave power, ground and remote wires intact. Try turning on again. If you still have a protection light your amp is faulty. Hopefully you have warranty .

    I have two zeus 1000 watts amps four rockford fosgate phase 2 15 inch woofers why my protect light keep coming on when i turn up my radio up

    The power draw may be eccessive, try placing a capacitor (or a bigger one ) on the lines to the amps.

    Red status Light

    If the protection LED is lit, the amp is in protect mode and probably has shorted output transistors. To eliminate other possible causes, read through the following page:

    My amp is on but the protection light stay's on!!

    Disconnect all speaker wires from the speaker terminals of the amp and disconnect signal cables from the amp. If it powers up, the wiring needs to be checked. If the protect light remains on, the amp likely has blown output transistors.

    American pro amp 1000 watt vs=3503

    The Protect light would normally be Red. You need to test your RCA's and make sure your getting a signal to your amp.  I would just buy a new set  or if you have another set just try them.  If you get your amp to power on and all of your voltages are right with the proper signal and your amp fails to turn on you Have a bad amplifier
