This is a logic problem with the internal microprocessor. A quick experiment: Turn the unit on for about 2 minutes and shut it down. Doe sit power uip in this case? If so, I'd suspect that the heat generated during normal operation is creating an internal problem thaty is preventing the micro from recognizing the "off" condition. The power data line is hung and is not being recognizwed by the micro so any attempt to turn the unit on will fail. The unplug/re-plug essentially clears or resets the unit.
If the unit is new, return it for warranty repair. It will be important to describe when the unit fails however. Try to see how long it must remain on for the problem to occur.
Update this with your results if the unit is not under warranty and we'll try to narrow it down.

if you have been blasting it, that could be why, recievers of this era are made with cheaper parts that cant handle what theyre supposed too,
i dont know specifically, but things like that have some sort of auto fuse...
i would assume, you are using it with wrong ohmage speakers, are you using car speakers? car subs? older speakers?
most home stereo equipment is 8 ohms, i have a set of 140 watt 3 way (10"[vented]/4"/2") as fronts and a set of 80 watt rears (6"[vented]/1.5"/24mm) the fronts are induviduals, meaning they have to be bought individually, and are not sold as a set, or part of anything, the rears were part of a bookshelf system, i got the set secondhand... but i always checked the ohmage...

This can happen. Lightening causes static charge that can be picked up by speaker wires. It is possible ONE of the amplifiers has failed.
To check, have the room quiet. Turn on the amp. After 5 to 10 seconds there should be a nice solid 'CLICK' from inside the amp. If there is no click, the unit is in safety mode. You will need a service shop.
