If the lights on the outside of the amp were dim, I'd expect the voltage at the amplifier's terminals to be low. Did you check the voltage at the amp with a multimeter?

As far as I know, replacement boards are not available. If there's something defective on the board, you'd have to replace the defective component.

My sound plays for a while and then the amp goes into protection


Try a different set of speakers or if it keeps going into protection you have a channel going bad.

I have a punch p850.4 amp that goes into protect mode as soon as its powered up , have checked and double checked all connections to make sure its all hooked right . even downloaded the pdf for the amp .


I have exactly the same problem, try a different speaker wire from your sub terminal to your amp terminal, if no luck you may have a loose connection on the wires on your sub, due to vibrations etc they can sometimes come loose, but very rare. worth checking though. 1 loose connection can make the amp go into protection mode. If all of these are fine, start from the beginning, ( I have tried this and i think its my speaker wire shorted out) 1st dissconnect all wires from amp. Then connect ground first, then your live. then power up amp, it it works andd not in protect mode your earth and live are fine, then connect your remote, then test, then speaker wire , then test, that way you can rule out bad connections and find any fault.

Amp has power, turns on with stereo, but sub isnt playing... all connections are good.. whats wrong?


if you have a protection light that is on it means the amp is in protection mode and wont allow any power to the sub this usually happens when the sub or wiring shorts out or if there is an internal failure in the amp or if its overheating. check the wires and connections and test your sub on another amp.

My subwoofer doesn't receive power, all amp fuses are fine, amp powers on, remote wire and rca wires are connected and intact. Before it stopped working all together the woofer would cut out and after...


If you are getting power to the amp, try this....Find a small speaker, unhook your sub and wire speaker to amp. Turn on your system at a low volume....If the other speaker is playing through amp, then your sub is shot.....If the small speaker doesnt work, then its either your channel is gone on the amp or the rcas have quit off off your head unit.

Memphis PR300.2 Amp protect light on


If it is not turning on your problem is it is not getting power. Check your fuses. The reason an amp goes into protect mode is usually because the subs are not wired up right. Make sure your fuses are good, you have a good ground, and make sure your amp turn on wire didn't come loose when you were putting the deck back in. As for the amp going into protect you probably wired the subs down to too few ohms and the amp you have can't handle it. Try hooking the subs up straight w/o bridgeing them and turn it up to see if it works. If you don't have problems with it then you wired your subs wrong.

My amp


Check your speakers with an ohm meter. They should have some resistance but not totally shorted. Its prob the amp that got fried. Connect the amp to the battery with no speakers attached to it if the protection light still comes on then the amp is blown.

If the amp is blown you can send it to people on ebay and get it fixed pretty cheap. Good luck!

It's very likely that the output transistors have failed in the amp. They will need to be replaced.

Goes into protection mode for no reason


if the amp is powering on the sub and playing and then turns in to protect mode it could be the amp is getting hot and its kicking into protect so you wont fry the amp

Protection light keeps coming on


Check the wiring between the sub and the amplifier. That's seems to be the only thing left that could cause a problem. If it's shorted to ground or pinched so the conductors are shorted together, it could cause the symptoms you listed.
