Question about Car Audio & Video
This is going to be the fuse for the ignition live to the radio.
Basically, when fuse pops, the radio still have a perminant live from the batter, so will operate from the power button. However, it is pre-set to turn off after 20 minutes unless the power button is hit.
This is to stop you killing the battery when running the radio with the ignition off for too long, or forgetting about it.
Check the fuse for the radio, its usually a 15amp. Replace, and it should be fixed. Be aware that this fuse often takes out the power (not the light) to the cigarette lighter, and the washer jets.
Sometimes running the washer jets with an empty resevoir will also cause the fuse to blow. So make sure you keep that topped up!

Has it been disconnected from the battery recently?
If so it will require the Security Code to be entered.
Remove the radio fuse for 10 minutes, replace then enter the code and that should solve it.
If you require a code, then post another question quoting ALL the LETTERS+NUMBERS on the radio casing
