Question about Pyle PZR-1000 Amplifier
Without owning one , I checked the manual and, sure enough, there's no circuit breaker shown. I mailed tech support. Meantime check where the AC comes in and the fuse holder ( unplugged) and see if you can find anything.

Generally speaking, an amp protects itself from heat, shorts and overloads by refusing to turn on or stay on.
Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.
You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.
If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.
If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced hands-on tech.
Check for loose speaker connections as a root cause for intermittent shutdown.

power to the amplifier.
• The amplifier's Power switch is off.
• The amplifier is not plugged into the power receptacle.
• The amplifier's high-voltage power supply circuit breaker has tripped. Verify that the AC mains
voltage is correct, then press the Circuit Breaker button on the back panel.
Take it to the ER.
