If it goes into protect mode with no speaker wires connected to the amp, it sounds like the audio output transistors have shorted. If that's the case, they would have to be replaced. It would require troubleshooting to find the shorted parts. You'd then have to disassemble the amp, desolder the defective parts and install the new parts. The following page provides the basic information needed to repair the amp.

My amp stopped workin, when i turn the stereo on, the green light is on, then when the music starts to play it turns red and stops working,


The red light on amplifier relates to power supply while the green light is indication of sound functionality. An amplifier that allows sound to generate should display both red and green lights. Howeever, some amplifiers would display only green as long as the sound is functioning.

Solving the problem

First, a red light still on means the power connections to the amplifier is fucntional least requirng repairs.

Second, the green ligh should turn on once the stereo were tuned up to produce sound. If the stereo is still on only least produce sound on the amplifier, check on the connection wires between stereo to amplifier that may have disconnected due to woofing or dubbing sound generals with unfirm wiring.

on most amp red isnt good that means it in protection mode try turning your setting on the amp down all the way and turn the volume down tell you can get sound out of them then turn up the volume to were you would to them most and set the to what sounds the best but make sure the light doesnt dim down when the base hits

2 12" subs + 600W amp. Turn on, goes boom once, then red light


Is your gain all the way up? If it done this before, sounds like your over working the amp. Make sure your subs ohm load is capable with the amp load to. If they are 1 ohm and your amp is only 2 ohm stable, it would beat for a lil bit then go into protection mode to. Check your wires too.

Everytime I start the stereo and turn the volume up even just a tiny bit I hear a few beeps the geen light flashes goes to a pinkish red color then back to green then shuts itself off. What do I do to fix...


If the amplifier isnt burned out, there is a good chance that one of the speakers is improperly wired, causing a short circuit. The amplifier is tripping the fuse to protect itself. These fuses **** themselves every time you shut off the unit. At very low volumes, the amplifier doesn't detect the short.

The saftey red light keeps coming on


It means that the subwoofer is blown. The red light is called the Protect light. Disconnect the speaker wire from the amp and then turn the amp on and see if the red light goes away. But if as soon as you hook the speaker wires back to the amp and the red light turns on that DEFINATELY means the sub is blown.

The portection light on my alpine mrv-1507 wont let me get any sound


remove the rca wires and the speaker output wires and just leave the 12volt power/ remote/ and ground connected. turn on the radio and see if the light goes off. if it does then one of your speaker or rca wires are shorted, plug in one at a time and see which one gets you the red protect light, then find the short for that speaker/rca wire. if the red light turns on with only the 12volts/remote/ground, then the short is in the amp.

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.

Red Light


that means you probably have a shorted speaker wire, a bad speaker or the amp itself is bad, try disconnecting the speakers one at a time and see if it turns on or not. if the red light stays on with no speakers hooked up it means the amp is bad

Red over light is on


I believe you have a short in your RCA jacks. Try unplugging both RCA's and see if the red light goes off. Your amplifier is in what they call protection. Meaning something is causing the circuitry to fail.

Power light


This could be a DC offset condition. Check you manual for what this means. Or other condition. First Disconnect the Subs and try it. If it still goes red then disconnect the RCA's and try it again. If the Led continues to go red after the click then the Amp is hosed. The Click you hear is an internal relay that cuts the subs in after a dely so you do not get the turn on THUMP of the radio at your subs.
