Question about Power Acoustik LT-980/2 Car Audio Amplifier
My amp just up and quit and now it won't put out any sound. It will power on but that is as far as it gets and the LED light never turns on now. any help would be appreciated
I have a Digital Audio model-DA2200W, Was listening to my tunes loud as always....then the subs quit bumpin...checked the subs cuz i thought i blew em...theyre fine...The power on the amp is still on...green light and all..just no output..I opened it up to see if anything looked burnt looks fine...is it toast or can i fix it??

Hey, ok you say that the amp turns on but the led light does not at all, how do you know that it is definitely on? If an amp turns on but there is no sound coming out it usually turns out to be a problem in the preamp stage, if it turns on but is in protect mode there is usually a short in the output stage of the amp. But usually there will be some sort of led status, the only time you dont have this status is if your power supply has a problem in which case you will probably keep blowing fuses in the amp. If you can give me better symptoms i might be able to try and figure out what your problem is. Cheers

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. Determine what its worth to you. You can get it fixed or replace with abetter amp. Might I suggest old school fosgate or lanxar. I myself own over 49 amps that were built between 1984-1995. Nothing newer and I kill it at every competetio .A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you.

I have had the same kind of problem, as many people said relocate your ground wire to a completely different spot. Fixed mine up straight away..

I have same problem with the protect mode but it does it in both my vehicles. i took another amp and the led lights up only it dosent play

Your other prob could also be the led light that is a problem that i found on amps also not all the time but in some rare cases i have found that it is just like a fuse if it is bad the amp wont work but more and likely it is the preout stage or output somewere along that line

Check to see if your rca and ground cable is connected good.

Well if its in protect mode what do u do? im having this problem after jumping my car. at first it didnt work then it came on for about twenty mins and never came on again. what do i do?

I've had this problem several of times, bad luck maybe, if the speakers draw to much power such as drop lower ohm or such, it fries the audio output module, this costs about 60 canadian to fix.

I've seen this before on my amp. If I unplug the rca's the led on the amp will go out. Just a little info for something I ran into.

Be prepared, I'm going to ask a stupid question :).....
Have you tried removing both the +12V and Remote wires from the amp for a few minutes/hours and then reconnecting? It's possible the amp just needs a little "reset time" before working.

SOURCE: No out put
It sounds like the switching power supply has failed.
You need to find a local repair shop. If you don't know of any, contact the local car audio dealers to see who they use. If several recommend the same shop, they probably do good work.
If you want to try to repair it yourself, you'd have to do a bit of troubleshooting.
Let me know if you have any other questions.
