The amp is in protected mode I believe. Not sure how to undo it though. Usually the red light appears when the amp is running too hot and it shuts off to cool down. Check the fuses that are on the amp. They might have blown.

For your information...it's "blew" not "blow" (past tense) and it's "battery" not "battary".

Great english Phong ! The protection mode is because a problem exists. The problem needs fixing first. Mine were internal, so a technician was required.

yes that is protection mode! There will be something wrong! I'd check all connections and make sure nothing has come loose anywhere! If all is wrong then i'd say a pro will be needed to sort it out!

Thank my great English teachers :wink:.

Sorry dude but I don't know where to go in Adelaide. Though have you tried looking at the fuse on the amplifier itself? It may have blown like one of mine and it had the red light on. If they are in good condition then I would say it is more internal, though I thought the fuses at the battery and ampflifier would have blown before internal problems :?

Try taking it to someone at JB HiFi, they might help you or point you in the right direction.

i had the same thing with my old amp all fuses were fine and everything seems ok, so i'm guessing it must be internal.

Take the amp back to where you brought it from they should be able to send it away to be repaired.

Although if its only a cheap amp your often better off buying a new one as the cost to fix amps can be quite ridiculious

It'd be better if you told us the brand and model of the amp, what you have hooked up and how ( to get the ohms), what cable you're running (250w cable doesn't mean squat).

It could be as simple as your earth has disconnected.

Firstly can you spell?
Secondly have you tried disconnecting the load from the amp just in case there is an external wiring fault? You could also try disconnecting the signal as well and see if that makes a difference......
