Question about Marathon DJ-2000 Amplifier
This item is brand new out of the box. There are no input our output connections connected to it. I just took out of the box connected the power chord and switched it on. The clip led red lights just stay on. Have not tested if it works otherwise as I fear that it may damage the speakers.
If the clip lights are on the unit has detected too high an input level. With nothing connected, this indicates a problem in the pre-amp section. Since this happened right out of the box, don't waste time on it. Return this for a warranty exchange.

Tips for a great answer:
CLIP: red, to the left of each Gain control.
Normal indication: illuminates whenever the amplifier is driven beyond full power. The LED's brightness indicates the amount of distortion. Distortion that causes only brief flashing may not be audible.
During muting, the indicator fully illuminates. This occurs during normal "On-Off" muting.
•Bright red illumination while the amp is being used indicates either thermal muting or a shorted output.
•If the amplifier overheats, the fan will run at full speed, and operation should resume within one minute. Allow the fan to run, and make sure the amplifier ventilation is adequate.
•A shorted or overloaded output circuit will cause excessive Clip flashing and possible overheating.
•If distortion is audible without a Clip indication, the problem is either before or after the amplifier. Check for damaged speakers or overloaded signal source. The amplifier Gain control should be in the upper half of its range to prevent input overload.
