Default Xplod 2100 GTX Problem

Hi. My Sony Xplod 2100-GTX amp has recently died on me and this seems to be the place in the know regarding car kit. There's only one LED ont he amp which is green for running and red for "protect" mode. When I was running the amp it was getting pretty warm but I was informed that this was normal. However now when I power it up the LED goes green for about 500mS then goes red and stays red. This means that the amplifier will obviously not do it's job.

I opened the amp up today and there's is nothing obviously wrong. All the components look good and nothing is burnt out. The fuses are fine and all the voltages going into the amp are good. The earth is also good. Any ideas would be massively appreciated to save me spending another 65 on another map.

Cheers in anticipation.

It probably has shorted output transistors. Can you post a photo of the component side of the circuit board?

I can take a photo but it will be next week as my digital camera is at work. The transistors themselves looked fine but I've not stuck a multimeter on them yet. Cheers for the help I'll get the pic posted ASAP.

How old is this thing.

Connect a DMM across the speaker terminals and power on. Find out whether any of the terminals has a rising DC voltage.
