If I don't ask the stupid questions first, I always get burned! Have you tried removing both the +12V and remote connections from the amp and letting it sit for a few minutes? If the amp doesn't automatically reset (and you have removed the condition that caused it in the first place), your amp may need repair, as it might have shorted something internally.

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 have a brand new logic soundlab tx1002. it was hooked to a brand new radio and new speakers. When turned on, it is in protection mode. you get a popping sound from the speakers. we have checked all...


first disconnect one wire at a time, making sure the power is off. then connect power and check to see if your speakers are making the popping sound. when you do your speakers, make sure you disconnect both positive and negitive of each speaker at one time. when your amp goes out of protect mode you will have found your suspect wire. then trace to the issue. it could be as simple as crossed over possitive and negitive wires
cheers

I need help installing a 4 Channel Power Acoustik Amplifier to Two Pioneer Subwoofers. I hooked up the power wire to the positive battery terminal in the engine compartment. I then cut the power wire and...


You are doing right on what you described. I really like to work with a clearly described what involved in an issue.

Now we have to use a Voltmeter to check if there is power to the amplifier. If there is power to the amplifier terminal, then the problem is at the amplifier, not the connection. Let check it out:

1- Turn on your Kenwood radio, make sure to hear sound from your regular speakers.
2- Turn remote control knob to the mid level between min and max.
3- Measure the blue wire where you spliced to ground to see if you have 12V, if it is not then the problem is right there.
4- Measure the Red wire power from the Amplifier to ground ( the bolt that you connect the negative power to see if there is 12V, if not trace back to the Fuse that you inserted between the positive terminal of the battery and the wire going through the firewall to correct it.
5- If you have 12V at step 3 and 4, then you have a defect unit, return it to the manufacturer for a replacement.

Sony STR K840P, protect mode is flashing,no sound,nothing come out. When starting every thing is fine for 20 or 30 seconds and the "protect"start to flash and nothing geht anymore,everything is blocked


This is a classic problem. One of your speakers is miss wired and or your speaker wires positive and negitive leads are touching. Check all connections from the back of the reciever to the back of the speakers to make sure your positive and negatives are correct and that none of the wiring is crossed or touching one another.

Check the wiring at the speakers themselves. It's possible that while you were moving the box one of the speaker wires came loose and shorted against the other terminal. A shorted speaker wire or damaged speaker will cause the amplifier to go into protect mode. If you have a digital multimeter with a resistance feature, you can test the resistance between the positive and negative terminals for each speaker.
