SOURCE: lanzar 800 watt amp protect mode stays on

protect mode usaully means that something has disrupted the power of feed lines to the subwoofer/speakers possibly fuse is blown in amp or amp is blown in which we hope not. see if you have a warrenty if blown and send back or bring it to where you purchased it from.

SOURCE: orion cs150.2 amp power light "red"for protected need "green"

remove the load (subwoofer)...
ensure the power and remote have 12V (remotoe only when the car is on)....
And make sure the ground is a good one - sanded and screwed.
If you now turn on the car, and the red light for protection still stays on, your problem is internal, and it will need to be serviced. This is not something that you can crack open and fix, as there are lethal amounts of stored energy in the power supply and capacitors.

If the light goes on, youe sub(s) is/are at fault. Check the impedence with a multimeter set to OHMs and read the voicecoil. It should read pretty near to 4 or 8 ohms.

But since your amp is the only piece new to the equasion, chances are the problem lies within the amplifier.

It either has fried components, or your subwoofer(s) are wired to a low enough impedence that your amplifier does not like.

With more info... model #s voicecoil configurations I can help you better. I will c/p an answer I wrote recently regarding amplifier failure.

SOURCE: Amp on "protect" mode

Hi, what you need to do is unplug all the connections to the amp. The amp goes into protection when the circuitry over heats.\
First decrease all your gains to minimal volume.
Connect your 12+V, remote, and ground.
See if the protection light comes on then.
Next plug in your RCA cables.
Check protection light.
Then plug in your subwoofer cables.
See if you are still in protect mode.
Hopefully everything works alright again.
Just slowly increase the gain to see what the cut-off is. Make sure you aren't dropping the ohmage too low on the amplifier. Check manual for correct wiring and such.

SOURCE: I bought a MTX Terminator amp and the light is red

all depends on that amp... if there was an issue it wouldnt work, and the light would be by a protect symbol... if its just red next to the power symbol i say no issue.

SOURCE: My amp has power but then immediately goes red into protect mode.

Ok, being an old-school "back yard" installer when i began, gave me 2 immediate possible diagnosis for your problem. I was running a Kicker zx550.3 amp to 2 Polk DB 12'inch Subs rated 600w max 1500w. I also used a LOC converter (Line Output Converter) in order to use my stock Bose stereo since it did not have RCA outputs. Now shortly after running this setup (approx 2 weeks) I noticed a substantial drop in sound output and also noticed some ground noise/distortion coming thru the subs. After tracing my wires that connected my LOC to the Amp, and Rear Speaker Wires of my Radio to the LOC, I noticed that by jostling the wires there was a connection issue. If you are using your factory radio to power your regular component speakers (tweeters, coax, mids) then chances are your stereo feeds into a FACTORY INSTALLED amplifier. If thats the case, then you need to access a Wiring Diagram for the Harness coming off the Factory Amplifier! Once this is viewable, check the wiring and locate the "Amplifier to Radio Signal Wires" and also the "Amplifier to Speakers Signal Wires" ... Now go back to your LOC and look at the wires you tapped to get the Line Signals to the converter, and make sure that you havent tapped your lines off of the AMPLIFIER TO SPEAKER wires. These wires carry a small electrical current because they are coming powered from the Amplifier, and most Line Output Converters are PASSIVE, which could short the signal the LOC creates thus reducing your signal gain, but does have the capability to surge back to the Factory Amplifier, which could possibly melt the shielding of the factory wiring, and thus allow your signal to cross or ground out! If you can, try running another RCA input to your Sub-Amplifier from another source other than your car, and see if your protection lights go out and the amp returns to normal operation. If so then your LOC or Factory amp is to blame. If not, then the second diagnosis is much simpler, which is your Alternator current has been reduced due to many different possibilities, and you should acquire a .5 or 1 Farad Stiffening Capacitor which will reduce the excess draw from your charging system. But due to the first solution being my problem exactly, im willing to bet your's lies along the same variables... GL to you!

IN5532, problem: Indicator power on (green) Indicator service: on (red) Indicator lamp: blingking (red) Please, what kind of this problem indicated? And how to fixed? Thanks


Power - green - is good.

Service - red - is not so good

Lamp - blinking red - is not so good

For dual-lamp projectors, one blink off every 2

seconds means the problem is with lamp #1; two blinks off
every 2 seconds means the problem is with lamp #2.

So how many lamp blinks do you have?

My amp stopped workin, when i turn the stereo on, the green light is on, then when the music starts to play it turns red and stops working,


The red light on amplifier relates to power supply while the green light is indication of sound functionality. An amplifier that allows sound to generate should display both red and green lights. Howeever, some amplifiers would display only green as long as the sound is functioning.

Solving the problem

First, a red light still on means the power connections to the amplifier is fucntional least requirng repairs.

Second, the green ligh should turn on once the stereo were tuned up to produce sound. If the stereo is still on only least produce sound on the amplifier, check on the connection wires between stereo to amplifier that may have disconnected due to woofing or dubbing sound generals with unfirm wiring.

Third,

Trying to reset filer light after changing filter-locked up


Here is a link to the manual for your unit. Copy paste into your browser.

http://shop.amana.com/assets/pdfs/literature/12591321.PDF

Page 20 shows how to unlock the dispenser and reset the filter light and I have pasted them here.

There are products at Lowes or Home Depot near the appliance for odor removal, I like to put a bowl of cotton balls on a couple of shelves, soak the cotton in vanilla once a day. The odors will be gone in a couple of days.

DISPENSER LOCK
(SELECT MODELS)
This feature prevents ice or water from
being dispensed.
To lock dispenser:
➢ Press and hold DISPENSER LOCK
button for 3 seconds. A green
indicator light above button confirms
dispenser is locked.
To unlock dispenser:
➢ Hold DISPENSER LOCK button for 3
seconds. Green indicator light above
button will go out.


Filter reset

The filter status indicator light
serves as a reminder to replace the
water filter. A green light indicates that
the filter is in good condition. A red light
indicates the filter should be changed.
Once light turns red, it will remain red
until function is reset.
To reset indicator:
➢ Press and hold both DISPENSER
LOCK and WATER buttons
simultaneously for 4 seconds. The
green filter status indicator light will
flash 3 times when the function has
successfully reset.

2. Holding button Resume , include the printer (press the button Power ).

3. Holding button Power , release button Resume (indicator of the feeding/readiness must glow green)

4. Not releasing button Power , two times press button Resume and release both buttons
- under each striking the button Resume indicator of the feeding/readiness changes the colour (one striking yellow, the second striking green). Beside printer, having more one indicator indication is switched (indicator of the feeding/readiness green, indicator mistake yellow)
- after buttons will be отпущены, indicator of the feeding/readiness certain time will twinkle green (time моргания depends on models of the printer), then green fires constantly
- if after these action instead of constantly burning green printer continues to show the mistake, that or you mistakenned in points 1 4 (switch off the printer and repeat with point 1), or beside printer additional mistake, which necessary to avoid, otherwise he will not fall into service mode (that means this mistake possible hear here).

For some printer (for instance, iP2000) for switching off it is necessary to press Power once again i.e. three times contract.
