Hi,

The amp will go into protection mode when there is a short in the speaker wires or the amp was overloaded. Verify that none of the speaker wire connections are loose at the back of the receiver or at each speaker. And verify that none of the wires are making contact with each other.

If it is, then remove the speaker wires and connect them again properly. After disconnecting the speaker wires, unplug the amp for 10 to 15 minutes. This will make the overload protection back to normal

Try this and let me know. I hope this would solve the issue

Thanks

I have a bamf 5500 series and the amp is on and working but when i turn up the volume the amp will go into protect mode and stay there untill i turn the volume back down then the amp comes out of protect...


you probably have a blown sub(s) that short out when the volume is turned up. it would be a good idea to find out which one(s) is bad and replace it. sooner or later it may make the amp go bad if not replaced or removed.

Its in protect mode and wont go back to normal


disconnect everything except the power, remote, and ground. turn off then on. if it goes into protect mode then there's a posibility that the amp if fried. check all the speaker inputs and outputs to make sure that there are no stray wires shorting out. if it stays on then you may have a short on a speaker wire or an auxilary input wire. plug each one in one at a time until it goes into protect mode, then that's the shorted wire or it could be a shorted speaker.

My 450 watt fusion amp is now in ''protect mode''. how can i fix this?


Start by completely turning off the power to it and anything connected to it. Turn all levels down to there lowest volume settings. Check to be sure your speakers are not shorted. Be sure the power voltage is correct. Turn on each of the items, the amp being last. That probably will resolve the problem but I am not that familiar with the unit just trying to help. Most units have stay in protect mode until I cycle the power. Typically they monitor the speaker current hence a short would cause almost an instant protect fault.
Good Luck,

My kenwood kvt 514 is in protect mode


It sounds like your amp is not grounded properly and is tryin to use your radio as a ground through the RCA's or there is a bad channel (dead short) in the amp.

Protect Mode


Hello,

first I would advise you to tighten all of your ground and power connections. Then I would suggest that you expose the circuit board and start the amplifier warm up process, once the amp comes on I would use freeze spray to cool down various components in an attempt to find the component which has become thermally sensitive. Once you find the component I would suggest replacing it and the putting the cover back on the unit.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

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.

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

Amp staying in protection mode


No, this amp is not a heavy power consumer- matter of fact it takes very little power to run.Maybe you should check the fuses on the amp to see if they are what is recommended.Also check your fuse kit to your amp- your fuse might not be big enough.If neither works take it back where u got it.
