amp wont work

ok ppl i need some help... my amp wont work
The amp is a American Bass VFL 200.1

when i turn it on it sits for a few sec's then goes in to protection
I have tried it with the sub and the RCA's disconnected at it still goes in to protection.

when it 1st hapenned it was after I went over a bump the stereo wasn't cranked and the voltage was fine and it has been doing it ever since the bump.
I have it opened up and as far as i can see nothing looks burnt.

anyone got any ideas?

The AB 200.1 is basically the same amp as the e-Audio 3000-D, and those amps have been having terrible problems with the connectors on the fets breaking. It's something like the board isn't mounted in to the chasis 100% correctly so the vibrations (ie, big bump) is causing them to snap.

I'd probably check there first.

Re: amp wont work

Be sure to check the entire length of your speaker cables. There could be an intermittent short somewhere.
