Yes you have a internal fault of the amp. the circuit that puts it into safe mode is bad and that is a very small chip on the board know as a op amp. needs to be repaired.

My standby light is on but the stereo when turned on does nothing


The problem is in the audio output ic, it has developed a load or short. But check the speaker wires first for shorts.

Check the wires for short circuiting at the car body or speaker wires. Triple check really everything.
Make sure the connectors are 100% connected to the wires. There maybe some resitance if the amp isn't getting enough power from the battery.

Kenwood kac-749s amp power indicator flashing red. what does this mean and what can fix it?


Either there is a short in the in the amp or hopefully just the speakers or wires going to the amp. disconnect any speaker input output and turn your amp back on(you will only have power, ground, and remote wires plugged in at this time) and if the red protect light goes away, then there is a problem with the input/output speaker wires, this includes your RCA's. If it's still flashing red then there may be a stray wire shorting to the amp in the speaker outs, other than that your amp may be fried. By the way, if it works without any speakers connected, including RCA's try connecting one component speaker at a time starting with your RCA's(if using them), speaker in, then speaker outs. If it turns into protect mode, note which speaker/RCA it was and replace or repair the short.

Xplod XM-554ZR Car Audio Amplifier: powr/protect light comes on red not green...


Hi, disconnect all speakers from unit and try again - if red light still shows then your amp has died.
If the light goes green, then start testing for shorted speaker/wiring. This includes speaker wiring to vehicle shorts - there should be an o/c reading on your meter

Red Light?


Surge protect. You either have a short or it's fried. unplug speaker wires one speaker at a time and turn off and then on and check if the light goes out. if it turns on with whatever speaker you removed, then that speaker is the problem or the wire from the speaker to the amp is shorted. don't forget the rca inputs as well. try those one at a time too. If at the end all you have connected is the ground, positive and remote wires and the light still turns red, then the problem is with the amp.

Unit only stays on for 4 seconds then turns itself off.


This is a short or unstable ohm load. Remove all speaker wire connections to see if the amp will stay on.
If the problem goes away when disconnecting the speaker wires try this:
1) Check volume level on zone one and zone 2 if connected. If it is too high the amp will go into protect mode and shut off exactly as you described.
2) Make sure no wires are touching any other wire or the metal surface of the amp. This will cause a short and send the amp into protect mode.

Sonamp 260 cuts out


Normally this denotes a protect condition. Remove the speaker wires from the back of the amp and see if the green light stays on. If this fixes the problem, then there is a short circuit in your wires, speaker level volume control or speakers. The amp sees the short and goes into protect. After a couple seconds it closes the connection again and if the short is still present it goes back into protect.

Generally, the power light is green and the protect light is red. If the protect light is on there could be a short in the wiring or there could be an internal fault in the amp.

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 (goes into protection), the amp likely has blown output transistors.
