Disconnect the speaker wires and if you have a voltmeter measure across the two terminals to see what your dc voltage is. Normally less than 50mV(.05vdc). There could be many problems but I would think you have a problem in the output section of the amp. Also make sure your speaker wires aren't shorted to each other and in very rare cases I have seen speakers short out instead of open up. Measure the speaker wires after disconnecting from the amp. Normally 3-8 ohms(for 4 ohm and 8 ohm speakers). Less than 3 you likely have a short or have lower than 4 ohm speakers(or wired incorrectly). Good luck!

When I turn my dvd player on, the volume will lower on its own to almost mute. It is hit or miss weather or not the unit will turn off on its own saying protect. All connections are good. Inside is clean....


When you've got good volume, try unplugging the speakers (only for a very short time) to see if that whining noise is still there or if it's stopped. We're trying to see if the whining is related to the low volume and "protect" or if it's only coincidental.

Try unplugging all the cables (except the power cord). Turn the player on & off several times & see if that whining noise acts the same. Also see if the player goes into "protect". What we're trying to do here is see if it NEVER goes into "protect" with the cables unplugged.

Last... try to get it to start & run without going into "protect", with all the cables unplugged (except power). Plug the cables in, one at a time, and see if plugging one of the cables in forces it into "protect". If so, there's something wrong with that cable or whatever's on the other end of that cable. Unplug it again & restart the player - no "protect"? Wait a little while, plug the cable in. "Protect"? Check the other end of that cable.

If it goes into "protect" with nothing plugged in except the power, then the player is probably a write-off, ready to be replaced (it's not very often that DVD players are worth repairing these days).

Hi, I want to know what is the best way to wire these subs. (Pair). I have heard of several ways. I have a 4 channel amp the soundstream picasso 4.760. Bridged it produces the most power. I was told...


Hello , I will be glad to help you.As far as your speakers..It depends on what impedance your subs are rated and if your Picasso amp can be bridged at 4ohm or 8ohm. If your subs are 8ohm each you can wire your subs in parallel and wire them to picasso amp in bridged mode. If your subs are 4ohm each.Then wire the subs in series then wire them to amp in bridged mode..caution do not wire subs in parallel if they are 4ohm .This would bring impedance to about 2 ohms and would be harsh for amp to handle...Goodluck

How do i fix my Power Acoustik LT-980/2 car amp, it keeps on going into protect mode.


Disconnect all speaker connections and rca cables. Leave power, ground and remote wires intact. Try turning on again. If you still have a protection light your amp is faulty. Hopefully you have warranty . .A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you

I plug in rockwood detanator VII and it goes to protections mode


Generally if an amp goes straight into protection, the amp is not grounded well enough. Either you should find a new location to ground the amp to or unhook the power wire from the battery, remove the ground wire from the chassis of your vehicle. Strip the paint from the chassis, since it doesn't conduct electricity, and remove any corrosion or copper shielding from the ground connector. reground to a solid metal location Can be grounded to the brace behind the back seat or to the seat belt bolt for best results.
An amp draws a lot of power, there it needs to be grounded well.
Hook back up your power wire to the battery and see if your issue is resolved.

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

It appears that the amp is going into protect mode. To eliminate external causes, read through the following page. Let me know if you have any other questions.

Protection mode


Disconnect all speaker wires from the speaker terminals of the amp. If it powers up and doesn't go into protect when you increase the settings, the wiring needs to be checked. If it still shuts down, the amp may need to be repaired.

Does it shut down or make loud noises when you move the RCA cables where they plug into the amplifier?

Mac-505 amp



Disconnect all speaker wires and signal cables from the amp. If it powers up normally (no protect light), the wiring needs to be checked. If it still goes into protect, the amp likely has blown output transistors.
