Question about Sony XM-2100GTX Car Audio Amplifier

1 Answer

Amp and LED turn on for a split sec but the dies

My stuff was working fine for about 8 mo. Then I accidentaly broke the remote terminal off of the amp. So for a while i just had the remote wire TAPED to the gold that was still left. It worked like this for another 3-4 mo. then sometimes i would hit a bump and it would knock loose. I kept re-taping it for a while and it was still working like i had just gotten it. One day, after it falling off, i tried to hook it back up and now it just does the same thing. When i first touch the remote wire to the remote terminal, the LED turns green for a split second before dimming very low or going out completely. If i quickly remove it and put it back, it doesnt turn on again, but if i wait 2-3 seconds, it does the same thing. The first time this started happening the subs kicked on for a few seconds and then died. Ever since then it's been the same deal. The amp doesnt smell fried all the fuses(including the power fuse) are good.???????????

Well you obviously aren't getting a signal to the amp telling to turn on. You need to take the amp to an audio shop who has a test bench and ask them to determine what other problems you might have. Quite honestly though there are better amps out there maybe you should just upgrade.

Turn switch 1 and 8 on.
Press and release the brake. (LED will flash)
Press and hold start button on remote. (LED will flash and parklights will flash once.
Turn switch 1 and 8 to off.
Press and release the brake (LED will flash once)
In future would be a good idea to supply vehicle details etc as can sometimes be a known condition , that saves time looking it up , good luck

42" Vizio tv. It turns on and turns right back off. It worked perfectly fine until my cat jumped on the remote and now I have no idea what's wrong with it. I think it can be fixed if anyone knows anything...


1. pull battery from remote for 10 seconds. This will force reboot of remote. test, if fail move ahead,



2. do a main reset on Tv,, pull power plug from power source,, wait 10 seconds, reconnect, turn on!, fail continue



3. ? when you turn on TV is the stand by led light amber, when you turn on LED\'s does it start to change color , but standby light is still on? if test positive with findings issue should be your motherboard or even power board but it should be Mo/Bo..

I just brought universal remote control it an 8 way diital slx rc050 i can get it to pair with my accousic solutions sp 101 amp have you got any codes that would work for this please


Hi,
try this if you need the manual let me know. (PLEASE rate if it was helpful)
If you are programming the remote for a brand/model that is
not listed in the Popular Brand List or the Direct Code Entry
(e.g. Wharfedale, Acoustic Solutions etc), it is recommended
that you use the Learning Mode (go to section 4).
Follow the steps below to program your remote using the
learning function.
1. Press and hold the device key you wish to learn for 3 secs.
The LED turns ON when the key is pressed but turns OFF
after 3 secs indicating that the key can be released.
2. Release the Device key, LED turns back ON.
3. Press and release the RECORD key, the LED turns off
when the key is pressed and turns on after release, the
remote is now in the learning mode.
4. Press and release the key on the RC050 that you want to
learn to, the LED will blink once and then remain ON with a
lower brightness to indicate it is ready to learn.
5. Face the head of RC050 to the head of your original
remote control, leaving a gap of 5cm (2”).
6. Now press and hold the original remote key (the teaching
key), do not release this key until the LED on the RC050
this indicates an error. Repeat steps 4-6 to correct the
error.
7. LED remains on, repeat steps 4-6 for other key functions to
be learned.
8. Press and release EXIT key to exit learning mode at any
time, the LED turns off.
9. If no keys are pressed for more than 15 secs while in
this mode, the remote exits the mode and the LED turns
OFF
good luck

Amp Power LED Display blinks red and no sound


With your multimeter set to DC volts, the black meter lead on the ground terminal of the amp and the head unit on (so the amp will have remote voltage applied), touch the red lead alternately to the B+ and remote terminals of the amp. Does the voltage on either the B+ or remote pulse below ~11 volts when the LED flashes?

Amplifier Not powering on.


Amplifier power problems are generally pretty easy to troubleshoot as long as you have access to a digital multimeter. You need to check the DC volts on the power terminal and on the remote terminal. For the amplifier to turn on, each terminal needs to show around 12 volts. From the sound of it, I suspect a problem with your main power wire, but the multimeter will make certain. If you show voltage on both terminals (with the black probe on the ground terminal) and the amp still doesn't turn on, then there's a defect in the amplifier.

LED power protection light not turning on


Check the fuse on the amplifier; if it's good, then you need a multimeter or voltmeter for further testing. With the meter's black probe on your amp's ground terminal and the radio turned on, both the power and the remote terminals should test at about 12 volts. If neither terminal shows voltage, you may have a problem with your ground connection; if both do, there's a problem with the amp.

use a multimeter to check for power on the +ve wire, could be your fuse, it only rus a sec when you jumper the remote to +ve because the remote cannot give out the nessary current to run the amp.
