Try to check if the blower is working, If not then first look for the blower sensor and clean it and resolder parts pin joints and associated parts also.If ever the blower is working fine then the problem is in amplifier section caused by change value resistor or leak capacitor or cold ,loose or crack solder joint parts this the common problem of over heating amplifier caused by abnormal distribution of current,try all of this,so your receivers works normal again.

Hope it may help you;

Machine shuts off after 10 minutes and clothes do not dry

it sounds to me like your temperature sensor is bad, but it may also be the one in the motor overheat protection. this could be caused by some small object jammed between the turning drum and the frame of your machine. if the machine seems to work fine, but shuts down after a few minutes, it should be a cheap fix, heat sensors are not that expensive. best luck to you.

I was playing music and it just stopped playing. no sound came out. Checked all of the wires and they were fine. I think I blew the amp because no sound comes out with dvds or anything. I just don't know...

Did the receiver shut off, or did it remain powered up?
If the unit overheats, it will shut down. They can also shut down if the volume is maxed out. Most times when this occurs you can power down and wait 5 minutes to power it back up.

What source was being used at the time it stopped transmitting sound?
Have you tried to change sources?

PB4-60 Overheating

if it shuts down then it most likely is a bad motor. If the voltage is properly wired to the motor then the motor is bad. Sometimes new items turn out to be bad out of the box.

Thinkpad A22m 2628-3SU laptop premature shutdown

OverheatingWhen the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermaloverload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is theproblem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make surethe vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed airto do this.

I have two Sonamp 260 amplifiers hooked into our whole house surround. One of them will not power up, or when it does it only powers up for a minute or two. Any thoughts?

When an eletronic devices shuts down, it is usually caused by an overload in the circuit. You can try connecting a different speaker to it to see if does the same thing. If that do not work it is needs repair.

Car radio

Obviously there is a heating problem with it. It seems that it is getting too hot and its shutting down before it overheats and catches fire. Pull the radio out of the dash and leave the wires connected. Are there any bare wires or ones not connected good? There may be a short between the wires thats not a significant enough connection to blow the fuse. Seperate the wires from each other and turn the radio back on. Let it play till the time that it usually shuts down. If its still doing it I would suggest smashing it with a hammer.
