Question about Jensen XA2100 Car Audio Amplifier

2 Answers

The protection light is on

This amp was barely used, I took my time and did everything very carefully when it was unistalled. It was working fine, However when i reinstalled it in my new car the protection light stays on all the time even without the fuses. None of the circuts are burned, everything looks good, just no sound. If anyone can get me the wiring scematics please e-mail them to me. ThanksI have the same problem. The green power light only flickers intermittently.

Hi,

is your amp already OK? i do hope it works

if still don't , try this disconnect all the speakers connected to your amp
disconnect whatever is connected to the line audio input

Are you having power now? if you turn it on?

if still protection light comes, you might have a busted amp.
if protection light doesn't comes good, your amp is OK

now to have a sound, reconnect speakers, watch attentively on the protection light, turn it on
if protection light doesn't appear rejoice, your speaker wiring's is OK

then next would be the input, here's comes the tricky part
what are you using RCA cables? if protection appears try to replace the RCA cord
if you are using the speakers wiring's of ypur car stereo maybe you need a line out converter to connect to your amp, or a1!:1 transformer to complete your setup, and your unit will surely work

hope this help, feel free to comment if you need further assistance, and dont forget to rate me well when it works, thanks for using Fixya! you're always welcome

JBL BP600.1 protection


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. Using an ohm meter to the sub will confirm whether its bad or not. Invest in a cheap test set of 6.5" speakers.
.A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you.

Amp 7541a amp was working fine, Took it out of one


REMOVE THE RCA INPUTS AND DISCONNECT THE SPEAKERS, THEN POWER THE AMPLIFIER UP WITH THIS NO INPUT, NO SPEAKER LOAD CONDITION. IF IT STILL GOES INTO PROTECTION AND YOU HAVE VERIFIED THAT THE POSITIVE AND ESPECIALLY THE GROUND CONNECTIONS, ALONG WITH THE REMOTE CONNECTIONS ARE 100%, THEN THE AMPLIFIER WILL NEED TO BE SERVICED. KEEP IN MIND, THAT DURING THE INITIAL TURN ON OF THE AMPLIFIER, THEY SOMETIMES WILL ILLUMINATE THE PROTECTION LIGHT WHILE STABILIZING THE POWER SUPPLY AND OUTPUTS, BUT AFTER THAT THEY SHOULD SHOW NORMAL POWER UP. IF YOU GET IT TO POWER UP FINE, THEN RECONNECT THE SPEAKERS AND IF STILL OK, THE RECONNECT THE RCA'S. IF IT IS STILL POWERED UP, THEN START TO TURN UP THE MUSIC. IF IT IS STILL POWERED UP AND NO MUSIC, THEN CHECK THAT YOU DEFINITELY HAVE A PROPER SIGNAL COMING FROM THE RADIO. LET ME KNOW IF YOU NEED FURTHER ASSISTANCE.....V

Protection light grief


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. Vibe is mediocre. Time to invest in an old school Lanzar Opti Drive amp. .A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you. protection-light-grief-shonxoarcym4awy4zl1imx4o-2-0.jpg

Sony explode amp for my car


Try disconnecting everything but the power connections. If the protection light still comes on, then there's a problem in the amp. If it goes out, then there's a problem elsewhere. In that case, hook up one speaker cable at a time and power on. If the protection light comes on, then either that speaker is bad, or you've got too many speakers connected to that one amp output. Too many speakers connected together can cause an overload and trigger the protection circuitry, or worse, blow out something out.

Hope this helps, and please rate my advice.
Thank you, and good luck!!

VB101PK REV 13, AMP WITH SUBWOOFERS


was the amp hooked directly to the box? You probably rattled the power connections from the circuit board like I did on a PT 800 watt amp.but check amp fuses first.
