Question about Crown CE1000 2-Channel Amplifier
Amp is in fault mode...it has a bad problem...one you could fix if you join the Navy, become a ET, go through Nuclear Power School and pound on a few MouMous....time for a shop or new amp

It's very likely that the main power amp section has a faulty part on it that is presumably causing an overload. You should check the devices on the main heat sink of the amp section.

Is it clipping for real or overheating ? It may just be a fault with the indicator light circuitry itself. Make sure the input levels of the amp are matched with the output levels of whatever device is running into the amp, they will either be +4 dbm or -10 dbu, if you have a choice you want them to be set at +4 dbm. Crowns are professional amplifiers and withstand years of hard touring on the road, it would definitely be worth it to take it to a good repair shop if you can't remedy the problem yourself.

If the amp is going into protect without audio passing it could very well be an internal short. In this case audio typically won't pass at line level. Have you tried turning the input gain stage knobs all the way down as well as the source material and slowly creep the volumes up? If it takes some audio before it faults you may want to double check the load you are placing on the amp's outputs. I'm assuming at this point it doesn't matter what speakers you are hooking it up too, it still crashed on you. Remember that Audio can be measured in voltage as well so you can measure the outputs of the amp with a volt-ohm meter.

It is possible that the amplifier had encountered a fault with a higher current drain which had triggered it to a protection fault condition. The fault can be your output drivers- the MOSFETS/IC's fitted for both the channels, Use a meter after disconnecting to check for short in the drivers. Disconnect the positive and negative voltages to the output and see if the protect changes. Even a fault in the preamp stages that drives in high current into the output can shut the Amplifier. Sometimes this can be a noise like a HUM or HISS before the protect works. Faulty capacitors in these circuits also can cause similar issues and needs close observation.
You need to confirm and replace the specific stages or outputs. If not there can be issues in the mother board, maybe the protect circuit by itself is shutting off due to a faulty bias , maybe a leak in any voltage/current sensing circuit. Also disconnect the speakers and test, if the protect is off then check for short on the speakers.
