A Bad Connection at the Power, Ground, or Remote Wire is likely. If it’s overworked it’ll shut down before you’ll smell it or see anything glaringly obviously, adjust the gain level down to lighten the load on the amp and see what happens. Make sure you’ve got enough amp. Subwoofer Specs & Impedance would be helpful.

Also, insufficient voltage to the amp will cause that, make sure your power wire and ground are large enough, use 4 Gauge Minumim but I use Zero Gauge for max voltage transfer and feeding the amp with all of the power it needs. Wiring is an issue. Also be certain your alternator and battery are healthy. Upgrade them if necessary, adding a 2nd alternator is simple, a large derp cycle battery(optima yellow top) is worth its weight in gold! Do the big 3 upgrade, google this, it’s just upgrading the wiring from battery to starter and alternator, plus using a larger ground wire to ground engine to frame/body. Huge Difference In Performance & Reliability of power supply to be had and simple for anyone to do with general knowledge. Good Luck!

P.S. I’d run Zero Gauge to your amp ASAP. Just my opinion, ask a few local scorers in the car shops and stereo sections!

SOURCE: Negative speaker output touched chasis of amp.

check all fuses on the unit, pull them all.
look for a way of resetting the amp.

LEAVE THE MAIN FUSE OUT TILL THE INSTALL IS COMPLETE!!!

that way you wont short a screw driver across the terminals on to the chasis.

SOURCE: Transmission fluid,power steering fluid leak cause burnt smell?

The smell you are probably smelling is the fluids that are leaking hitting something hot like the exaust. Unless the leaks are so severe that it takes constant refilling then you should be ok. But be aware that when yu have leaking parts that you must regularly check those fluid levels. Them leaking wont cause major damage, but you not keeping the fluid levels up will. I had a tranny leask in my van for a 1 1/2 and thought it was a expensive fix, but I ended up fixing my leak for about 6 bucks. My point is, check your fluids once a day if not more depending on the severity of the leak.

SOURCE: i have two amps my power acoustic ov2-1800 stays

You have a short. Check all power connections to both amps, all the way back to the battery. Then check to make sure speakers are connected properly

SOURCE: My amp overheated and entered

Disconnect all speaker connections and rca cables. Leave power, ground and remote wires intact. Try turning on again. If you still have a protection light your amp is faulty. Hopefully you have warranty . Please check speakers prior to connecting another amp. .A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you

Afraid you may have blown an amplifier. If you have a AC voltmeter, audio generator and schematic, you can feed audio signal into unit and track the signal on both channels during amplification stages.and locate the spot where the amplification stops or one channel deviates from the other. And there is your culprit.

Washer stopped mid cycle and now it will not even turn on. I can also smell a burnt odour. Is my motor shot?


Yes, the motor has definitely burnt out causing an overload protection to switch off the electrical supply inside the machine.

Peavey DPC1400x turns on, plays sound for a split second, buzzes, then goes silent. All lights show green though. What could this be?


This sounds like a power supply capacitor leaking causing a dc bias problem and amp protection shuts it down.

I wanna supplied my Amplifier Lanzar MNX 250 with an 12V - 30 Ohm battery, but the led of my amplifier is red and my speaker doesn't play music. How can I fix the "protect mode" in which the...


  1. The battery is 12 volts and Ohms has nothing to do with your amp installation.
  2. Was the amp running and got hot? Many times an amp will go into "thermal mode" when used for an extended amount of time and need to cool down but I assume if you are trying to hook it up you were not using it.
  3. You need to check the ground wire real well. A loose ground will cause protect mode.
  4. Recheck the speaker wires and their connections. If they cross this to can cause protection mode.
  5. This is a 4 Ohm amp, are your speakers 4 ohm or lower> If not then you may be running to low of a load to your amplifier.
  6. I always remove everything from the amp first and power it on and then add wires and see where which connection throws the amp into power mode.
  7. Check the fuse as well but if the LED is on chances are your fuse is good.
  8. If you check all of the items I listed and the amp still goes into protect mode then your amp is bad.

Regards, Tony

This is commonly a 'capstan motor' the part that drives the tape. This causes no eject, sometimes a burnt smell and blown internal fuses.
The motor needs replacing, possibly a fuse and a check for why it has a burnt smell.

Protection mode stays on on a samsung avr-620 home cinema, how to fix please


Think of the protection thing as a fuse. So the cause of it going off will be an overload in the power supply or main amp. Check all the parts in those sections, you might see something burnt or damaged, pay close attention to anything on a heatsink.
