The red light is normal and indicates the amp is powered up. Check your signal wires (RCA patch cords?) and speaker wires. Need more info to be of more help. What receiver are you using? How is it connected to the amp?

Generally thats a sign of a shorted output device, either a bipolar transistor or mosfet. Also ground faults can trigger a protect light.

on some amps there is a duel light. red and green usually. red means it is in protect mode or you didn't hook up your remote wire. if in protect mode, it could mean a number of things. did you hook it up with speakers and everything?

My A8000t amps red protection light is on checked


When ever the amp stays in RED protection mode with out any speakers hooked up to it, YOUR amp has internal damage some where. Can't tell you how much to fix, Could be cheap or not worth it. Talk to your local electronic repair, would be a good start.

The indicator light on the amp is staying red in protection mode how do i get it out of protection mode?


Check your manual, sometimes you have to take it back in, depending on the protection. Sometimes you have to change up the fuse. Is there enough power going to the amp, or to much?

Hooked up to a kicker L712. Worked fine now its in protection mode. When i turn it on the light is green for a second then turns red. It wont stay green. What should i do? Is it the circuit board?


perhaps you are pushing the amp to hard check that the gain control knob is not turned all the way up. This will cause the amp to overheat. If not that check all of the wiring to the amp for a possible short.

Not working


disconnect the subs from the amp and check to see if the amp will turn on and stay on-check the subs to see if they are blown with a different source try a pair or a single sub that you know works fine on the amp and see if it plays-this should tell you whether your amp is fried or your subs are roasted

Why does my amp stay in protect mode?


The most common reason an amplifier goes into or remains in protect mode is shorted output transistors. To eliminate other possible reasons for it to go into protect, read the following page.

Red light


something is shorted in the circuit, or your subs. unhook the subs first and try it again, if it is still in protect then it is most likely the output transistors.

Amp stays on all the time


hi. your amp has an internal power supply fault. problem lies in the remote turn on regulator circuit or with the pulse width modulating circuit.this fault definitely needs to be in technicians hands. cheers
