It's an SR7009, at this point maybe a year to 18 months old. When transitioning to AirPlay as the input, the system shuts off within roughly ten seconds, or when attempting to restart system afterwards, it will shut off at the end of the boot sequence, again roughly ten seconds. I had a thought that perhaps a friend of mine was attempting to AirPlay from his iPhone, where he keeps then volume typically at 100% and didn't realize when selecting AirPlay as the output, that the receiver would match its output level. If this Is the case, how would I check and or correct it?

Hi, this problem occurs when there is a short circuited part somewhere in the system. You shoudl try disconnecting the speakers and see if it will stay on any longer please let me knwo if that helped at all or if it is still doing the same thing?
