There are poor solder connections somewhere on the board. Usually these are at the voltage regulators where there can be some heat. Look for 3-legged transistors attached to small metal heatsinks, If you can solder, resolder the pins on those parts. Also look for any connections that appear to be grasiny or have rings and resolder them too.
Keep us posted.

Disconnect the outside speakers "at the speakers" then turn back on. If the problem persists, disconnect the speakers at the back of the receiver and try again. If the problem stops "at the receiver" check your terminals and make sure no braids are touching each other. If the problem stops when you disconnect at the speaker, chances are good it's a bad voice coil from moisture. Most "outdoor" speakers with a brand name on them have a pretty good warranty. Good speakers have a 10 year warranty and the manufacturer will replace. If you still have an issue, post a comment and I can help you some more

Disconnect all speakers at the receiver, then turn it on. If it still cuts out, it's a power supply, capacitor, or transister issue and will need to be serviced. If it stays on, re connect speakers one by one and turn the receiver back on until you find the problem wire or speaker. Once you find the wire or speaker that's causing the problem, disconnect the speaker wire at the speaker and turn it back on again. (Make sure wires are separated) if it still cuts out, check the entire wire or replace it. if it stays on, check the speaker with a meter for a short. If your not comfortable with doing that, any electronics shop will generally do it for you for free. This is the most common problem among all brands of receivers. Wires get crossed and short, then short the power supply. Hope this helps. If you need further help troubleshooting, post a comment and I will be glad to help.
