Question about Clarion APX480M Car Audio Amplifier
I have a Clarion APX480M in my boat and the power light is blinking blue. Is that normal? All my speakers connected to that amp don't work now. Ive tried disconnecting everything and just leaving power/ground. Nothing works, I need help if someone can explain to me what going on.

SOURCE: Clarion APX480M amp
This sounds like a signal problem. Make sure that all of your signal cables are plugged in fully. If all are, you need to check for coninuity between the shield ground of the head unit's RCA jacks and the case of the head unit. With no RCAs plugged into the head unit, you should read ~0 ohms between the shield of the RCA jacks and the case of the head unit.

SOURCE: fuse for pwr amp.
For a single Clarion APX480M, the inline fuse should have a rating of 40 amperes.
Incidentally, perhaps a copy of the installation manual would be of use to you. One is available here.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.

try to unplug each speaker one by one while playing it. There can be a defective speaker that grounds out at the speaker terminal or internally causing the amp to go into protection causing all the speakers to go out.
