Won't turn on

My amp gets to hot to touch. Now it won't turn on. When you first turn on the receiver the led lights red then turns off. All connections are good and intact. When I disconnect the speakers the led turns on but it's real dim. The speakers are wire in 2 ohms.

Make sure you check to see that the power wire going to the amp dosent have a bad connector on it or the wires is a dedicated for the amp. At the power wire measure for 12.5 to 13volts at the amp while the cars running and then if alls ok there remove the speaker wires and the input wires WHILE THE AMP IS OFF. then turn back on the amp is the light brighter??? if not again turn off the amp and measure the currant draw at the amp without and speakers or input. If its over a few amps the amp needs serviceing. If not then check and make sure all your speakers are good and that ones not shorted as well. Dont forget to check the crossovers too>> You didnt say if they were passive or active types

SOURCE: amp getting really hot

If depends on what the amp is rated to run. If it is only rated to run 2 ohms x2ch then it can only run 4 ohms x1ch. If you run it at 1 or 2 ohms that is too low, too much current, and it will get hot and eventually blow up under hard use. Some quality amps can live that way, and it depends on the sub and what frequency you are running it at. For normal use I would not recommend it. Wire to sub at 4 ohms x1 (or 2 ohms x2ch) for that amp if that is what it is supposed to be at, I'm not sure from your description. Also enhance cooling of the amp if you can, I run fans on mine if they have a heat issue. Warm is one thing, hot is another and not good for amp.

SOURCE: protection light stays on

Your output transistors (some of them) have shorted and this amp needs bench servicing. Or get the schematic and troubleshoot and repair bad components yourself.

** TV won't turn on.** No picture or sound. Please Help !

If the red light won't come on it is not getting power.First,try plugging it in to a different outlet,or unplug one of the gadgets you know is working and plug the tv in there.You are simply switching.If you know that there is power coming from the outlet and it still won't come on then you'll have to check the cord;don't go much farther than that without expert help.

what do you mean by "dash lights"? how do you KNOW the pump isnt working? how do you KNOW its good? at the ignition switch the ORANGE and PINK should have power in the RUN position the BROWN and TAN/WHITE should also be HOT in the run position. There should be a red wire near the fuel pump relay, make sure its HOT when cranking. IF its HOT and the fuel pump doenst run, the pump is bad. You can also put 12V on that red wire and power the pump.

Pioneer media receiver won t turn on

If the light on the media reciever doesn't come on then the power supply in that needs to be replaced by a service tech. If you disconnect the 2 cables from the media reciever and the panel and then try to turn on the panel it should light with red and green squares for a few seconds but will turn off as it needs the media reciever to be connected.

Can't get my amp to turn on

You need to confirm that you have sufficient B+ and remote turn-on voltage.

With your multimeter set to DC volts, the black meter lead on the ground terminal of the amp and the head unit on (so the amp will have remote voltage applied), touch the red lead alternately to the B+ and remote terminals of the amp. If the voltage is below ~11 volts, you need to check the wiring feeding whichever line is too low.
