Clip light 8600 XR

Post by acaine » Sat Oct 30, 2021 8:08 pm

The clip light is continuously red I have nothing plugged in on any of the channels everything is turned down but when I turn the main sound up I get a horrible loud buzzing sounds like emergency broadcast system. I am able to get sound out of the RCA, if I depress the mute button on the channels. Thoughts?

Unplug the speaker cables as well, see if the clip light stays on. If so, then there's an internal circuit board problem and will need repairs. If the clip light goes off, then you might have a speaker cable with a short or partial short, or a problem with one or both speakers. Most likely, the problem is a damaged circuit component in the amp.

At this point I would wager one of your power amps has failed and there is DC on the speaker. If the speaker cone moves one direction and stays there as it makes the loud sound, that agrees with me.
