    Hook it up normally if the green power and red protect light is on then just remove the fuses one by one then reverse the order . It should then start back up

Just turn it on normally then after you verified that the green power light is on. And the protect light is on as well just one by one remove the fuses and then wait one minute not doing anything and just re install the fuses one by one and when the blue directed light reactivates (THE BLUE LIGHT ON TOP OF THE AMP COVER) you are good to go. Sometimes just removeing the amp trigger wire and reinstalling it will do the same thing. hope this helps. i do this on mine every now and again. Just wish i new what caused it to do it in the first place, this is just my solution to get it working again.

Speakers made popping sound and now receiver is in protection mode


It sounds like you have some wires that are touching cause the reciever to protect itself. Go over and check all wiring and make sure you have nothing touching. Unplug device while you are doing this and then when done plug back up and see if that fixed issue.

Directed d2400 red and green lights on constant and no output...whats the solution


ok ive had an orion amp do this before. oiron is made by directed audio now so its the same style amp. after i checked the ground, power, subs to make sure they were good and not shorted together, i came to the conclusion the amp was bad. its in protect mode right now so check everything with a multimeter and make sure everythings good. if all is ok the amp may be bad. good luck.

My amp is on protect!!!


If the amp is in protect mode, it probably has shorted output transistors. To eliminate other possible problems, do the following. Disconnect all speaker wires from the 'amplifier's speaker terminals' and disconnect RCA/signal cables from the amp. If it powers up normally, the speakers/wiring need to be checked. If it still shuts down (goes into protect mode), the amp almost certainly has shorted output transistors and will need to be repaired. If the amp only shuts down when it's driven to relatively high volume, you need to confirm that you have sufficient power supply voltage. With your multimeter set to DC volts, the black meter probe on the ground terminal of the amp (not on the point where the ground wire connected to the vehicle) and the head unit on (so the amp will have remote voltage applied), touch the red probe alternately to the B+ and remote terminals of the amp. If the voltage is below ~11 volts, you need to check the wiring feeding whichever line is too low. If both the B+ and remote turn-on lines are low and your battery is fully charged, you may have a bad ground connection.

My sharp Stereo is stuck in '' protect'' mode


Protect mode is not something that a reset will fix. Basically it indicates that there is a problem with the final output stage of the amplifier. Normally this indicates that the output transistors are defective. In most boomboxes, the amplifier is a single IC. If you can post the model number, I can provide you with the required part and cost.

Thanks,

Protection mode


The protect mode with nothing connected indicates that the output transistors for one or more channels are shorted. These will need to be checked and replaced. This is a simple repair for an experienced audio shop, Figure about $10 for each output transistor and add in another $10-$15 for misc parts that may also be smoked.

If your problem is "switch on then after 10secounds shuts down and protect appears on the display .and cannot do anything with it but turn it off"

Then the unit is on protect mode, that is a special diagnostic mode that starts when the unit detects an internal fault.

To start unplug the unit from power for ten minutes, and see if this reset the protect mode, I guess you have done this already.

The first thing to do is to start the unit with nothing connected, if the unit does not go to protection, then the problem was one of the cables or a connected device.

If that does not fix it , there is a master reset , by pluggin the unit into main while at the same time you hold the power button.

If still no luck then the unit is defective and must be taken apart and tested with a multimeter.

You start checking for burnt areas on circuits, cold solder joints and leaking capacitors at sight, then there is need to grab the multimeter and do the real testing job.
When you find the problem you do the soldering.

Naturally this requires a certain experience in fixing electronics, to complete the job usually a precision soldering is needed.

I have a pioneer 5.1 channel surround sound system and it powers up and everything seems to go fine but you go to turn it up and no sound comes out of the speakers already checked speaker wire connections...


Does the protection relay click 3 to 5 seconds after initial power on??? If not, your unit is staying in "protect" mode to save your speakers because the output transistors or output IC is shorted and sending 40 to 60 volts at your speakers. Not a good thing, but at least it saves your speakers.
Good Luck!

Red protection light


If the amp is going into protect mode, it probably has shorted output transistors. To eliminate other possible problems, do the following.

With your multimeter set to DC volts, the black meter lead on the ground terminal of the amp (not on the point where the ground wire connected to the vehicle) and the head unit on (so the amp will have remote voltage applied), touch the red lead alternately to the B+ and remote terminals of the amp. If the voltage is below ~11 volts, you need to check the wiring feeding whichever line is too low.

If the voltage remains near or above 12v, disconnect all speaker wires from the speaker terminals of the amp and disconnect signal cables from the amp. If it powers up, the wiring needs to be checked. If it still shuts down, the amp almost certainly has shorted output transistors and will need to be repaired.

If the amp is in protect mode, it probably has shorted output transistors. To eliminate other possible problems, do the following. I'll assume that you've checked the amplifier's on-board fuses.

With your multimeter set to DC volts, the black meter lead on the ground terminal of the amp (not on the point where the ground wire connected to the vehicle) and the head unit on (so the amp will have remote voltage applied), touch the red lead alternately to the B+ and remote terminals of the amp. If the voltage is below ~11 volts, you need to check the wiring feeding whichever line is too low.

If the voltage remains near or above 12v, disconnect all speaker wires from the speaker terminals of the amp and disconnect signal cables from the amp. If it powers up, the wiring needs to be checked. If it still shuts down, the amp almost certainly has shorted output transistors and will need to be repaired.

Let me know if you have any other questions.
