My Harmon kardon is stuck in 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. Double check all connections .A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you. Worth fixing.

Nad C350 2 channel Amp continually in protection mode


That could indeed be the issue, but you must check your speakers, wiring, and also the oupt stages for problems. Maybe the prtection circuits are actually doing their job. lol

Hope that helps...

My 4 channel amp keeps going into protect mode when i power on,its not a imminet light,but it blinks once then dies out,plz help


Remove all speaker inputs and outs and just have your 12volt battery, ground and radio remote connected and power up the amp. If it turns red instantly, then the amp is shorted/blown. If it stays green, then install your speaker inputs and outs one at a time. make sure your amp is on while your doing this. if the amp goes into protect mode, take note of which wire it was for it's most likely shorted. Fix that shorted wire and the unit should stay on.

A 1000 WATT AMP HAS PROBABLY GONE INTO PROTECTION MODE BECAUSE YOU ARE TRYING TO RUN 1600 WATT SUBS COMBINED

Protect Mode


Your probably not pusing enough wattage to the amp. Look into buying a capacitor for your set up. and you may need to run a thicker guage wire to your amp.

The amp turns on but goes to protection mode


Have you checked the REM wire, if it is the wiring may have gotten fried.

Or you may need to get new parts replaced within the amp.

Both issues happened to me.

Infinity Reference 7541a protect & Clip lights come on


Hello pianopeter, I have the same amp with the same problem but only when the crossover mode switch on the front channel is set to low pass or high pass. Have'nt fixed that yet cause when I got the amp and put power to it the clip and protect lights would flash back and forth. I turned out to have 2 bad output transistors on the right front channel, I replaced them and amp works great now. Then when I was doing final testing I switched the crossover mode switch to lowpass and your problem occured. I do believe the problem is in the removable board which controls the controls the crossover and input to a point. Try moving the crossover mode switch to flat on both front and rear and let me know if amp works fine that way. I'll be working on this problem soon but would like to know if your problem changes if you move the switch to flat. Please leave me a message as soon as you find out cause this will aid in the process of me fixing problem. I am an electronics tech and buy and fix broken amps all the time so I have a really good knowledge of car amp repair. Once again let me know ASAP, Thanks

The protect light stays on


is your amp grounded well?
are all of your fuses fine?
connections to stereo?

if all else fails you might have blown your amp like mine, you can see about getting it fixed but i just found another one.

how many watts is your amp? how much does your sub need?

Car audio amp in protection mode


If you power up the amp with the RCAs plugged in, does it go into protection mode.

If you power up the amp with the RCAs plugged in, does the woofer pop?
