Either one of the amps or the power supply has blown. The protect light means the power supply has been shut down due to overcurrent. Take unit in for repair. These are hard to work on due to packaging.

My Mackie 1400i thumps when I turn it on


Do the protect lights light up when you turn it on? There is a soft start circuit that should delay for about 3 seconds when powering it up, it sounds as if this is not working. If you don't get the protect lights for a second or so when turning it on then this has failed and you need to get it serviced and repaired before more goes wrong.

The "PROTECT" light indicator came on and now the


The protect light generally comes on when the is a short in the speaker cabling. as a test, turn on the mixer without any speakers hooked up. If it still goes into protect mode the problem is in the mixer. Take it to your local music store and have their tech look at it. if it doesn't go into protect, check the speaker cables by plugging them in one at a time. The bad one will send it into protect.

good luck

I have a Behringer EPX 2000 amp. The limit lights are lit up and the amp isn't powering up properly. There is a bad burnt smell to the amp and sub so i'm pretty sure something has blown. The limiter switch...


The limiter probably delayed the eventual damage. Nothing prevents all damage absolutely.

Generally speaking, an amp protects itself from heat, shorts, overloads and operator exuberance by refusing to turn on or stay on.

Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.

You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.

If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.

If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech for forensics and further action.

Check for loose speaker connections at the speaker as a root cause for intermittent shutdown.

Protection light came on then went of now i get nothing when i flip the switch to on.


Likely an overload failure caused the protect light to come on, and then the fuse blew so all power is off... Do NOT replace the fuse as you will LIKELY do additional damage to components. Take unit in for repair immediately.
Note: These units are really hard to work on due to the way they are packaged.

Protect light comes on when power on


This indicates either one or more of the amps have a failure OR the power supply is being overloaded which is usually also caused by failure in the amplifier.

Occasionally a power supply failure causes this problem as well.

Due to the way these are packaged, they are a real pain to work on for repairing.

Cliping light comes on at times then makes noise


If it clips, then LIKELY you are driving it too hard.

When it goes into clipping, it truncates the waveforms and will create a disturbing NON musical noise.

Line 6 stuff is NOT noted for reliability, so take it easy and hold the volume below the clipping level. The light coming on means it is protecting itself from overload.

Not gettin to rec.


Take out the memory card, there is a little switch on it. One position is protected which means you can't record or delete anything from it, the other position is normal where you can record to or delete from.

The 'protect light' comes on Fender PD150 Portable Sound System


The protect circuit is activated by a current sensing transformer in the *input* of the power supply. If any of the subassemblies of the unit (or all of them in combination) draw excess current then the protect light will illuminate and the power supply shut down to prevent any damage to the system.

The circuitry in the power supply is fairly robust as well as fuse protected so it is unlikely that the power supply itself has failed. More than likely one of your output power transistors has been shorted and it is easy to check this yourself if you are interested in doing so.

Furthermore if you follow a few *simple* precautions you can do this safely and confidently.

Post again on this thread if you are interested and I will spew the details.
