Hello, I’m Nathan, and I’ll be assisting you today. My livelihood depends on your positive feedback, so your satisfaction is my highest priority. Sorry to hear you’re having trouble.

The shut down is a protection circuit kicking in to protect the receiver from damage. This could be caused by a short in one of the speakers or components, thermal fault, or an internal defect in the amp itself.You can try a few fixes yourself. To begin, power the receiver off, and disconnect all speakers and components. Try to turn it back on in Tuner (am/fm) mode and see if it will stay on. If it does, power off and reconnect 1 speaker, then power on to test again. Continue this process until you isolate the speaker or component causing the problem, or until everything operates normally. Let me know the results, and I'll advise further if needed.

The roots of my problem cannot be overheatting because The first thing I have tried is to cool the unit down for TWO days before turning it back again.
I will try what you are suggesting, unfortunately today I am leaving the country on a business trip that will last two weeks, so it will take a little while before I try what you are suggesting. Can I come back on this once I am back or I am not alowed to have follow up questions (under the same fee) after certain period of time?

Good morning, and sorry I missed you earlier.Thank you for the additional info about the cooling period. This actually isn't completely definitive though, unless power was unplugged that full time as well. If it was plugged in but just no attempted use for 2 days some of the standby power components could be running hot and causing the issue right from the start. Do still test the other items though, and you are of course welcome to get back to me whenever it is convenient for you. Just be sure to come back to the original question here and you'll be covered under the same fee - if you post a new one then you're charged again.
