Had the same problem... turns out the copper on my red and black speaker wire (on the speaker, not receiver end) was touching - causing my receiver to go to standby (self-preservation probably lol). i pulled the wires further apart so the copper ends weren't touching and that solved it.

It sounds like the safety circuitry is being activated to prevent a more serious hazard. The problem is most likely located in the speaker wiring plugged into the back of the unit.
If you unplug everything on the back, all of the wires going into and out of the receiver, and it still does this, then there is a big problem inside the stereo's circuitry. It may have a blown amplifier chip, and will require an electronic technician to repair it.
If it stays on with everything unplugged from the back, then if you plug each item back in, one by one, you will discover which item is the culprit.
I don't know about the newer receivers but this sounds like an arching OFF/ON power switch that was a problem on Pioneer receivers years ago. I would bypass the switch and see what happens.
1. Unplug unit from wall. 2. Jumper two wires going to off/on switch using alligator clip with insulated boots on clips. 3. Plug amplifier into disconnected circuit breaker/fuse protected AC strip. 4. Plug AC strip into wall outlet, turn AC strip switch ON and see if problem disappears.
Unplug the unit from power and wait at least five minutes. Plug it back in and try it. If that does not work check your operating manual to see if there is a reset that can be performed. This would do a "factory reset" which would hopefully solve the problem. Good Luck!
Receiver either just stuck or held or having problem in amplifier output area. Try to unplug it from AC outlet for couple of minutes and replug back in and power up, if works, fine and if does not, take it to local repair shop as it might requires some parts replacement in amplifier out area.
Nope. sorry to burst your bubble but your problem is pretty common on this unit. Its bad capacitors in the power supply and probably not worth repairing in a repair shop. since this is a solid state reciver, there are no user replaceable parts inside.
