Your amp has gone into protect mode. If its been like this for a while its likely one of the fuses on the amp is blown, to check this unplug the power wire and inspect each fuse in the side of the amp, if one's bad then just replace it with one of the same amp rating. If it hasn't worked for only a few minutes you probably just overheated your amp and it will work again after it has cooled.

SOURCE: i have a dub 4001 amp

Take it step wise.

Unplug the inputs and outputs from the amp (be sure to mark the wires so you can hook them back up), leaving only the ground, +12, and remote wire hooked up. Now, turn it on. If the amp light goes red, the amp is broken. If it goes green, turn if off, plug in the speakers, then turn it on. if it's red, its a speaker problem, if green, do the same with the inputs, and you'll have your answer.

SOURCE: red protection light wont turn 2 green no matter

Hello mcis43fan,

The protection circuit can be activated by shorted or grounded wiring or it can be caused by a defect in the amp itself.

First, disconnect all wires except power, ground and the remote turn-on lead and see if the amp powers up normally. If it still goes into protection, the amp is defective, most likely shorted outputs and needs repair or replacement. If the amp powers up normally, test the other wiring for shorts and grounds. You can reconnect them one at a time to determine which one is causing the problem.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: I bought a MTX Terminator amp and the light is red

all depends on that amp... if there was an issue it wouldnt work, and the light would be by a protect symbol... if its just red next to the power symbol i say no issue.

My f&p gw611 Fills up but then wont wash.the 2nd


Most possibly be Error code 56,
Is common in 11 series machines & early series 12.
Is your machine beeping & showing a weird pattern of lights on the wash cycle, It is displaying an error code,
To read this error code you start at the red spin light & work to the left only add up the lights that are on. Red spin light = 1 2nd rinse light =2 1st rinse light =4 last wash light=8 4th wash light=16 3rd wash light=32 2nd wash light=64 1st wash light=128

The Ground wire is hooked up right but the red light wont go off and stay green so the amp will work. It is very frusterating all the cables are the right size its is a 1000 watt amp. I have two 500 watt...


Sounds to me like the amp is going into protection mode. Try placing one sub on the amp with very little gain. One of the biggest reason why this happens is because the subwoofers are wired wrong. What is the brand and model number for your amp?

Converter wont work red light on when i use the remote it wont turn green when i push the red button manualy it still wont turn green


If you're electronics savy, as in replacing capacitors, open it up.. that's your problem.. one or two of the caps on the power board has gone bad.. most likely a 470uf 25v, which can be replaced with a 470uf 35v found at Radio shack for about $1.29. You can tell if it's bad if the top is cracked open & leaking or just domed out instead of being flat.

My red light on my amp is on and wont go out


Unfortunately I think you need to get it repaired or replaced .When a protection light will not turn off it is generally caused by an internal short and needs one or more replacement parts for it to come alive again.

You need to check your woofers. Most likely one or both may be a) blown or at a dead short or b) the ohm rating on them may be too low. What model woofers and amp do you have??
