Do you get an indication on the display where the point of failure might be? It would show up on the LCD speaker diagrams just before shutting off. If not, then you will need to replace capacitor.

Powering off by it's self...

It sounds like an overload/no load problem.
Are ALL the speakers connected? to the right places?
If the amplifier section doesnt "See" what it needs, it will shut off.
If all connections are good and it shuts off still take it to a tech who knows stereo. Doesnt have to be an authorized HK guy either

Your drawing to many watts from the unit and its shutting down. Make sure the -/+ are set properly for the speakers. Also the power amp inside the unit could be bad and the relay trips off. Plug straight into the wall and don't go through a powerstrip. Is anything else connected to the receiver?
