Re: Orian d5000 amplifier

Output module probably gone, or switching relay stuck. Refer your problem to a certified tech to avoid injury.

Power-supply circuit for Orion hcca d5000

send it out to a professional. you need many precise metering tools to measure if everything reads ok, you need to replace other pieces that may not show physical damaged.

I have a orion hcca d5000 and keeps going into protection. there is nothing hooked up except power, ground and remote. I hook amp to a bit writer and it reads over current. Can this be reset, or is my amp...

yes mines does the same and everyone keeps saying check the ground upgrade to the big three and so on personally i think this series and there new amps are just junk. Mines been in protect since i got it two years ago, once inawhile would turn off with big bass drop and now the amp doesnt really work in master switch but works on the slave i just think the amp was built poorly so, my advice get it bench tested before you do any new upgrades

I have a 2000 watt hifonics brutus amp worked fine but 1 day it just stopped working..the power light doest light up but the hifonics led lights are still on...whats the problem?

there is a step up converter inside the amp that likes to come loose from the board. This may be your problem. Otherwise Check all the chips for burns or disconnect

When my car is not on the three blue lights on top of the amp are still on, but the power light on the side of the amp is not. Is it normal for the three lights on top to stay on all the time?

No it is not normal.. Normaly when lights stay on the problem is a constantly hot remote wire, but in your case you say the main power light is off.. Soo one can only assume the the problem is in the LED board it's self. This can happen when an amplifier is over heated, or has a poor soldering job. Now if you can hear white noise comming from your speakers with those lights on, then you have a simialr, but more serious issue. If it is just the lights, and not a powered up amplifier I would just let it go.. LED's draw very little power, and can't hurt anything. If the AMP is actualy staying on, I would get it repaired..

Thermal switch or possibly a stressed amplifier module?

I would make shure the Plus and negitive are right. Also if it was smoking you probly blew the power supply out of amp. From to many ohms loads. Hope this helps you out

Amplifier does not work

remove the speaker wires and re-test. If the amplifier powers on, without fault, you know the sub(s) and/or wiring are the culprit. If the power and ground are ok, take the amplifier in for service. The indicators are there to let you know of a problem. If it is an internal one, a certified tech will be required.

500.1 amp power lights blinks on and off

Protection mode; follow this link to get a manual for the amplifier:

Below information is from the manual:

Status Indicator Lights / Protection Circuitry
There are three status indicator lights on the top of the amplifier. These are as follows:1) "Power" (Green): lights to indicate that the amplifier is turned on and operating normally.
2) "Thermal" (Red): lights to indicate that the amplifier has exceeded its safe operating temperature, putting the amplifier into a self-protection mode, which reduces the power output of the amplifier. The red light will shut off and the amplifier will return to normal, full-power operating mode if the heat sink temperature drops back to a safe level.
3) "Low ω" (Amber): lights to indicate that the impedance of the speaker load connected to the amplifier is lower than the optimum impedance load range for the amplifier. When this light is on, a protection circuit engages and reduces the power output of the amplifier. The amber indicator will also light when a short-circuit is detected in the speaker wiring (this can be a short between the positive and negative speaker wires or between either speaker wire and the vehicle chassis).
There is only one condition that will shut down an undamaged 500/1v2 completely… If battery voltage drops below 10 volts, the entire amplifier will shut itself off. The green "Power" indicator on the top of the amplifier will turn off when this occurs. The amplifier will turn back on when voltage climbs back above 10 volts. This may happen in a rapid cycle when bass-heavy program material causes a weak charging system to dip below 10 volts momentarily. If this is happening in your system, have your charging system inspected to make sure it is working properly.
For information on troubleshooting this amplifier, refer to Appendix E (page 21).
