    Thank you so much robotek!

    I took your advice and unfortunately the red light is still on when all speaker and microphone wires are removed so it must be the tower itself. :( I am calling several companies this morning to get it serviced. Your advice was very helpful and I really appreciate you taking the time to help me. :)

Hi ckcms5

All I can give you is a confirmation on the fact that something has gone wrong with the head.

  1. First thing to do is check you speakers, and leads for short circuits. Best way to do this is plug them in normally, and check at the Head end from tip to sleeve of the Jack connector. If you measure anything lower than 4 ohms, or any dramatic differences between the speakers, then you have a problem with either a lead, or the speaker that shows low ohms.
  2. If the protection light is still on with the speakers disconnected from the head, then the head is faulty and will require a tech to check it out for you.

Be sure to do both tests. Sometimes it can be a short in the speaker side of things that blew the head up in the first place. Checking they are OK before plugging in your newly repaired head saves you from doing the whole exercise over again.

I am more than happy to answer any other questions you may have about it, please get back to me here, or use the ASK function to go straight to me :) If you are still unsure, have problems, or we need to look at the situation more deeply, then before you give a rating for this advice, hit the ASK button Thanks for using FixYa, If you consider the advice I have given you as sound, a FixYa rating is a great reward for my efforts to help you. Cheers.

When the the Fender Passport 250 is plugged into the computer through the stereo out, there is feedback/buzz in addition to the sounds the microphones pick up, even when the mikes are off.


If there is a 120hz buzz then there is a ground loop between the computer and the passport. You need to get a ground isolator to go between the two. If the buzz is deeper the may be a audio ground off or the hum is comming from the power supply

Fender Passport makes loud chirpping knocking sound after on for only 5 10 minutes


I have one that is doing the exact same thing. It's at a Fender
Authorized Service Center now. Hopefully dude can find the
problem. Fender says there is a 5 year warranty on it, so I
expect them to make good on their promise. Did you get
yours fixed?

Sorry about the delayed response, I just noticed this posting.

The protect indicates a problem with the output section of the amplifier. Effectively the amp has been shutdown to prevent further damage. Although the unit should not have been working (at least not well) at 30V, unless they htried to run it at full volume, there should not have been damage. The outputs are blown and this unit requires repair. If I remember these units correctly, there are 8 output transistors, most of which may require changing. WIthout seeing the unit and taking some measurements, I can not say for sure, but expect $40-$70 in parts.
