SOURCE: protection light keeps comin on

Unfortunately, P/A does not release schematics - even to repair techs. You have to find a knowledgeable repairman, or ship it to P/A.

1-888-990-1236 for support, and RA# info.

Plan to be without your amplifier, as NEW WARRANTY repairs are backlogged approx. 6 mo.

Rule out external problems by hooking it up to an isolated bench power supply.

If planning on doing your own repairs, see this site for info.


P/A has an ONLINE SUPPORT WEBSITE to order parts etc, and may be a useful resource as well. Do some fishing, and you may find what you're looking for.

I will too, and post any findings.

Make sure your head unit is off.

Reset the amplifier using the manufacturers specified method. Usually this is just power down briefly and then back up. I usually pull the amp fuse and make sure all LED's on the amp go out. Wait 10 seconds, and then put the fuse back in.

If the LED comes back on when you reconnect power, without the HU being on, you've got a bad amp.

If the LED does not come back on after reset, then check for short circuits on the speaker leads. Still leaving everything off, from the amp terminals, remove both wires to a specific speaker and check for shorts.

SOURCE: Protection light is on my REM 4300 planet audio

That means that 2 wires must have touched and the protection light came on to prevent further damage.. There is usually a reset button somewhere on the amp and pressing it should reset that light

What normally burns out in an amp for the protection light to come on?


The protection circuit is in place to try to protect the amp and speakers from damage should something go wrong, as in a shorted speaker wire, an under or over power situation from the car's battery or alternator or it may be be driving by a speaker load that is too low. You can check your owner's manual for further details or look on line.

What does the red and green light mean ???


red and green light? there is most likely a protection and a power light. The red I assume would either be a protection light or a clipping light signal. Does the amp kick off then these lights kick on red then to green?

Disconnect all speaker wires and signal cables from the amp. If it powers up, the wiring needs to be checked. If it still shuts down, the amp likely has blown output transistors.

This amp is similar to many of the planet audio class D amplifiers. These amplifiers have quite a few problems. If the amplifier has failed, it needs to be serviced by someone who is familiar with the amplifier.

Do not repeatedly replace the fuses. It will lead to more damage and a more expensive repair.
