This is the thermal overload for the amplifier section. unplug unit and check all speaker connections for a crossed wire. After all connections are checked and are in good condition, plug the amp back in and power up. Note: the polarity of the speakers when the wires are plugged in. Use the painted line on the speaker wire as a guide for which one is positive(+) and negative (-). If an amplifier is operated out of phase for too long ( positive and negative reversed), you can damage the amp. A bad speaker coil can cause the overload as well. If it still does it, disconnect all speakers and power it up. If these remedies do not solve it, you amplifier IC is shorted and needs replaced.
