Re: Protection Light Keeps Popping On
Yes I would certainly say there is. Sorry to be the bearer of sad news but you have a short in them thar circuits! Its not a consumer replaceable part that you can open the unit and find a part thats bad and simply replace it. All these parts are soldered in and need a mutimeter at best to test the output and driver devices. It should be taken out and sent to the manufacturer or to a local audio repair center. Good luck

You need to unhook the speakers and try the power again. When the protection light comes on it either means that the speakers have to low of a resistance or are shorted or there is another issue with the power, We need to be sure it is not the speakers. If the light goes out, power it off and hook up ONE and try again then keep going till you find the bad one. You did not say what amp it is so that is all we can provide
Look at your memory card. SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.
first disconnect one wire at a time, making sure the power is off. then connect power and check to see if your speakers are making the popping sound. when you do your speakers, make sure you disconnect both positive and negitive of each speaker at one time. when your amp goes out of protect mode you will have found your suspect wire. then trace to the issue. it could be as simple as crossed over possitive and negitive wires
try hooking up only the power ground and remote see what happens if protection light is on then u have a problem with amp if it goes off then hook up rca if still off then hook up speaker wire if it turns on then u have a prob with speakers
check your amp and speakers and make sure their both hooked up 4 ohm instead of 2 ohm because if you have 1 set of voice coils on your speakers they can only be hooked up four ohm and not bridged to your amp because if you keep trying this you will lock up your speakers if the speakers are only 4 ohm than just hook them up regular to each channel on your amp if your trying to brigde four ohm speakers to your amp it will keep going into protect or worst case scenario you will fry your speakers and you can check your ohm with a ohmmeter trust me my brother owns a stereo shop
hi anna4042, are you referring to your antivirus popping up messages that you need to buy the product? or a notification that you have a virus on your pc and you need to remove it by purchasing the said product? whats MX6441
Try disconnecting everything but the power connections. If the protection light still comes on, then there's a problem in the amp. If it goes out, then there's a problem elsewhere. In that case, hook up one speaker cable at a time and power on. If the protection light comes on, then either that speaker is bad, or you've got too many speakers connected to that one amp output. Too many speakers connected together can cause an overload and trigger the protection circuitry, or worse, blow out something out.
Hope this helps, and please rate my advice.
Thank you, and good luck!!
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 it still shuts down, the amp likely has blown output transistors.
