Question about Fender Passport Deluxe PD-150
Hi I have 2 Fender Passports - one is a p250 and the other a pd150. I have just bought a Berhinger xyenex 1002fx mixer as Ido not like the built in reverb on the Fender units. I have read I need to coonect via master outs on the Beheringer desk and into the Aux Return on the Fender. I have done this from the left master out on the desk and into the Passport but it only comes out of one side, one speaker. Should I be running 2 cables out of both master out channels and if so which other socket do I need to connect to the fender? Many Thanks.

The protect circuit is activated by a current sensing transformer in the *input* of the power supply. If any of the subassemblies of the unit (or all of them in combination) draw excess current then the protect light will illuminate and the power supply shut down to prevent any damage to the system.
The circuitry in the power supply is fairly robust as well as fuse protected so it is unlikely that the power supply itself has failed. More than likely one of your output power transistors has been shorted and it is easy to check this yourself if you are interested in doing so.
Furthermore if you follow a few *simple* precautions you can do this safely and confidently.
Post again on this thread if you are interested and I will spew the details.

Plug your keyboard into a line input. Run a cable from the stereo out put jack into a separate amplifier with a speaker e.g. a self contained powered monitor.

These are a real pain to open. You have to remove the front panel to remove a shield to remove the back amplifier power supply area. The power supply is a switching type and has lethal voltages present. Working on this should be done using an isolation transformer. With your symptoms, it is likely one side of the power amp MAY be blown, but do check that the wiring hasn't fallen off and the jack itself. Two pairs of wires come from the power amp to the front panel jacks. document location of ALL the cables you disconnect as they CAN be confusing to restore.

This needs to go to the repair shop. The protect mode is turned on when either the power supply has a problem or one or both power amplifiers have a problem. These are often blown components.
These units are HARD to work on. To open you have to first remove then front panel before you can remove the back panel that has the power supply and power amps/heat sinks.
Compare repairs of these units to working under an automobile dashboard!
Hint: On startup, use a series 150 wat lamp to limit current while repairing. SInce these use a switching supply operating off the input line, use an isolation transformer for personal safety.

The external effects when used would require an effect processor with left and right channels. You need four cables total for the effects... the two channels out to the effect unit and two cables to bring it back to the power amps.
Remember to use your pan controls if you want certain inputs to go more to either the left or right outputs.
