Driving the amplifier too hard causes it to go into protect mode to prevent damage. The amp periodically recovers and operates normally until the next overdrive peak hits it.

Testimonial: "this amp has been used for almost a year and i had no problem until this happened and i have used it way harder before and never had any issue so i dont think this is the problem"

Amp not switching on again after switched off for 10 minutes


It sounds like amp's short circuit protection is kicking in. you more than likely have a couple of blown speakers. This drives output to close to 0 Ohms and its shutting down. If it;s not that , the problem is internal and you would have an out put Transistor or a capacitor about to fry.
suppose you could go in and go over solder joints, but don't hold your breath. Next time dont turn it up so loud

Amplifier unit of MHC-W770AV stopped working all of a sudden.


Start with the simple things first, hunt round for fuses near where the mains goes in. Keep on the lookout for anything that looks burned or broken. If there's no power to anything it will be something in the power supply section.

It sounds like you have a bad ground connection. You need to take the radio out and check all the connections. I bet you have a loose one somewhere. That is what the problem was with my bronco

Amp not working correctly goes into protection


Disconnect the speaker wires from the amplifier and see if it still goes into protection mode. If it still goes into protect with the speakers disconnected, there's a problem with the amp; if not, you may have a blown speaker or a shorted speaker wire.
