On an amp? All the devices should be replaced at once as they can measure or look good, but still have a high resistive leakage, and if this happens to save a couple of bucks, you can blow out all the devices you just replaced. The thing with solid state devices? Most of the time you cannot look at them and see they are bad unless they had a total blowout and blew apart and put a big hole into itself and then yes that ones bad and beleive me most of the others are too. Good Luck

SOURCE: amp staying in protection mode
No, this amp is not a heavy power consumer- matter of fact it takes very little power to run.Maybe you should check the fuses on the amp to see if they are what is recommended.Also check your fuse kit to your amp- your fuse might not be big enough.If neither works take it back where u got it.

It sounds like the power supply failed. Generally when the supply fails in that amp, you have to replace all 8 of the power supply FETs and all 8 of the 47 ohm surface mount resistors. Many times, the supply fails because one or two of the output transistors have failed.
If you want to have JL repair it, you MUST go through an authorized JL dealer.
If you have a good local repair shop, they should be able to repair it.
Let me know if you have any other questions.

If you power up the amp with the RCAs plugged in, does it go into protection mode.
If you power up the amp with the RCAs plugged in, does the woofer pop?
