Question about Audio Players & Recorders
I Have managed to solve my instant turning off fault. As its been mentioned before, this is a demo mode fault, heres what I did...
Leave the Unit in standby, and press and hold the "system menu" button you should see the words "demo mode" flash up on the display briefly, at this point press the "set" button to enter demo mode selection finally press the "+" or "-" button to turn the demo mode off.
You have to be quick with the remote buttons when getting into the demo mode, might take a few trys.
I'm not sure if this will fix everyones fault, but certainly helped with mine. Good Luck.

I still have my manual, so I can give the extra steps to get those menu you are talking about here. Use your remote, turn off the player (they call this standby mode), then push the menu botton under system (lower right hand corner), then use the + & - button to select the right menu (Demo mode is one of them), then use set button to select, and use + & - button to select the mode you want, then use select botton to select. When it is all done, push the menu again to get off.

Okay, just managed to fix mine. I'm not certain of the sequence of events, because I was improvising (and I can't find my manual) but as reported, you have to get it out of Demo Mode.
I did this by using the remote and doing something like holding down the System Menu and Disp buttons together at which point the display sat in Demo, and then holding down the CD-R Menu and Disp button (not sure if that was necessary) and then turning off the machine. When I turned it back on it was fine. Listening to it right now, after having it sit for about a year.
So, perhaps if people try using the System buttons together they can figure out the proper sequence of events and post to the list?

Generally speaking, an amp protects itself from heat, shorts, overloads and operator exuberance by refusing to turn on or stay on.
Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.
You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.
If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.
If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.
Check for loose speaker connections at the speaker as a root cause for intermittent shutdown.
