It could be the wiring. Sony amps will go into protection if the ohm is to low. They usually like to see 4 ohm or higher. Unplug your speaker wires and see if it still stays in protection. If it does could be an internal thing in the amp. If it isn't rewire subs in series not parallel.

How to fix problems internally on a yamaha p3200 power amp when the protection stays on from cold power up


First check all speaker wiring to make certain there's no shorts.
Protection system come on if there's an overload. These are caused by shorts. If the speakers and wires are good then the only other cause is the main amp, possibly a transistor, has shorted.

Um the power light will flash then the protl. light will flash its all hooked up right but weird sounds coming out my subs.


Disconnect subs from output of amplifier and then turn on car and radio. Does amp stay on or go into protect? If it stays on then there is something wrong with the subs or how they are wired (series, parallel ) to the box and amp. If it still goes into protect then something internal with amp.

VR3 Amp Protection Light problem


Looks like you have covered all the basics.

The remote wire is the switch that turns the amp on and off. So you are probably just killing the power to the amp.

Sounds like a short in the amp itself if all the input and output wires are disconnected and the protection is still coming on.

Thumping speakers - no power light is on - wired correctly


the amp is going into protect mode due to something wrong in the amp or some thing in the wiring to it ooh yea if you are getting 18v power to the amp that is way to high it should not be higher then 15v if the amp is in protect mode it will not play at all.

My amp is on but the protection light stay's on!!


Disconnect all speaker wires from the speaker terminals of the amp and disconnect signal cables from the amp. If it powers up, the wiring needs to be checked. If the protect light remains on, the amp likely has blown output transistors.
