Amplifer Not Operating

My amplifier no longer turns on. The power indicator light on the back is red instead of green. The blue lights on the side won't come on nor will the fan come on. I have tried reattaching the remote wire but still no luck.

The red led is the protect indicator.

When this stays red you have either a bad speaker or the amp has a blown channel. Those are the 2 most common problems with the protect light staying red.

Disconnect the speakers and if the amp turns on without speakers, you most likely have a bad speaker. Take them in to a service center and have them checked.

if you disconnect the speakers and it still stays red, you most likely have a bad channel in the amp.

There is nothing you can do with that except to take it in to be serviced.

Both of the possibilities are common problems with all car amplifiers.

Since you checked the wiring, there is really no other end user actions that can help you on this.

Sorry for the bad news, but if this information was of value to you a good rating would be appreciated and appropriate.

Let me know if you require any further help, I have been repairing car and home amplifiers for over 17 years and can help you on most questions

Why does my green power light blink and my amp not work


There are three status indicator lights on the top of the amplifier. These are as follows:
1) "Power" (Green): lights to indicate that the amplifier is turned on and operating normally.
2) "Thermal" (Red): lights to indicate that the amplifier has exceeded its safe operating temperature, putting the amplifier into a self-protection mode, which reduces the power output of the amplifier. The red light will shut off and the amplifier will return to normal, full-power operating mode if the heat sink temperature drops back to a safe level.
3) "Low ω" (Amber): lights to indicate that the impedance of the speaker load connected to the amplifier is lower than the optimum impedance load range for the amplifier. When this light is on, a protection circuit engages and reduces the power output of the amplifier. The amber indicator will also light when a short-circuit is detected in the speaker wiring (this can be a short between the positive and negative speaker wires or between either speaker wire and the vehicle chassis).


There is only one condition that will shut down an undamaged 500/1v2 completely... If battery voltage drops below 10 volts, the entire amplifier will shut itself off. The green "Power" indicator on the top of the amplifier will turn off when this occurs. The amplifier will turn back on when voltage climbs back above 10 volts. This may happen in a rapid cycle when bass-heavy program material causes a weak charging system to dip below 10 volts momentarily. If this is happening in your system, have your charging system inspected to make sure it is working properly.

If your amplifier is blinking Green, and no output is coming out of the speaker, you may have internal damage to your 500/1 Amp.

"My amplifier turns on, but there is no output"
  • Check the input signal using an AC voltmeter to measure the voltage from the source unit while an appropriate test tone is played through the source unit (disconnect the input cables from the amplifier prior to this test). The frequency used should be in the range that is to be amplified by the amplifier (example: 50 Hz for a sub bass application or 1 kHz for a full range / high-pass application). A steady, sufficient voltage (between 200mV and 8.0-volts) should be present at the output of the signal cables.
  • Check the output of the amplifier. Using the procedure explained in the previous check item (after plugging the input cables back into the amplifier) test for output at the speaker outputs of the amplifier. Unless you enjoy test tones at high levels, it is a good idea to remove the speaker wires from the amplifier while doing this. Turn the volume up approximately half way. 5V or more should be measured at the speaker outputs. This output level can vary greatly between amplifiers but it should not be in the millivolt range with the source unit at half volume. If you are reading sufficient voltage, check your speaker connections as explained below.
  • Check to ensure that the speaker wires are making a good connection with the metal inside the terminal block. The speaker wire connectors are designed to accept up to 8 AWG wire. Make sure to strip the wire to allow for a sufficient connection with the metal inside the terminal block.

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.

I have a crown Itech 4000 and when I plug it in it the green light around the front power button does not light up and when I turn on the power button on the front only the blue "power" light...


Nice amp. There is a breaker/switch on the back that trips to protect the amp. Turn it off, then back on and see if the green indicator comes back. If the breaker trips again, that's probably an indication of a more serious internal problem.

Hi,

Would you be aware if there is a pre-installed external amplifier attached to the old head unit?

If yes, the speakers are connected to the amp and not to the new CD player. There should be a pair of shielded wire with RCA male connectors that should go to the head unit and the other ends would be attached to the amplifier. Additionally, there is a trigger wire from the head unit that switches the power of the amplifier to ON aside from the power B+12 and GND.

If no, on the Ford pls verify that:
Green/Yellow - always on B+12VDC (positive battery terminal)
Yellow/Black - switchable +12 (ACC terminal of your IGN switch)
Black/Light Green - chassis ground
Orange/Blue - remote trigger on for power antenna or external amplifier(s)
Light Blue/Red - park light

Speakers
Orange/Light Green LF+
Light Blue/White LF-
White/Light Green RF+
Dark Green/Red RF -

Pink/Light Green LR+
Dark Blue/Orange LR-
Pink/Light Blue RR+
Light Brown/Red RR-
(R-right, L-left, F-front,RR-right rear)

On the head unit, often, the yellow normally goes to the always on B+12 such as the + terminal of the battery, the red to a switched B+ such as the ACC of the IGN switch and of course the black to the chassis/ground.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Light stays red


I do belive this amplifer has a red light when it is on... I know my Kenwood does. I suggest checking all your wireing between your amp and your speakers, check the impediance between your positive and negative terminals on your leads to the subs.
