Most likely a cold solder joint somewhere in the audio circuit. Most likely on the legs of the relay that turns the speakers on or off. Also check the connections at the audio outputs. Give it a good look over for bad solder connections, given the symptoms that's 98% likely to be the problem.

Had the same problem but found simple solution. I just reconnected the speakers which were on "A" connections to the "B" set of connectors immediately below - problem solved!
Hope this works for you.

it could be your wire. try using different speaker wire. if it still has that same problem, take the cover off and tap on the amplifier.

the clicking is a power suplie overload some output amp is with problems and shutdown after overheat, when you tap is bad connection inside, normaly is related with sound off after 15min. needs to be checked by tech. to ensure perfect operation.

This is a common problem that a lot of people have with this system. The problem is in the connection of the Left and Right Speakers to the receiver. I had this problem too.
What you need to do is actually open up the receiver using a screwdriver. Once it is opened up you will see a circuit board and lots of wires. Look for the red and blue wire that should be pretty easily visible. Cut each one, then strip the ends some, and reattach the ends but to the opposite color- make sure to solder it as well. On some models they messed up the connections and it got switched. Once you do this, the left and right speakers should work great. Hope this helped!!
