Check wiring behind the radio itself, also check speakers and wiring for them. When a radio or an amplifier goes into the protect mode it is protecting itself from an electronic short. If it turns on properly and has been for some time it is not the the power wires, but may very well be a bad speaker or a connection to that speaker.
Hello.... it sounds like you have the remote wire for the amplifier hooked to the solid blue wire behind the radio. You need to hook to the blue/white wire behind the radio. What happens is that the solid blue wire turns on the power antenna when you are listening to the radio and it turns off (lets the antenna down) when you listen to a cd. There should be a blue/white wire that is the amplifier turn on wire that will stay on as long as the head unit is on. Hope this helped!
It sounds like they messed up your installation. You can confirm their work by verifying that each wire was attached properly.

Illumination is the grey wire from the car to the orange with white stripe from the radio.
I suspect that the yellow wire from the car is not connected properly. When the orange wire (constant power from the car) is attached, but not the yellow wire you can insert and eject cds, but it will not turn on. Constant power is used for maintaining the clock and preset radio stations.
If everything looks correct, I would take your car back to the installer and have them correct the issue.
You may have Power antenna and amp remote turn on wires switched. Your system may be looking for turn on signal from radio and only gets it when am or fm is on because power antenna wire is hooked up instead of amp turn on signal.
