The amp is blown. Unhook all speakers and try it again. If it still shuts down it will have to be repaired.

The unit is in protect mode. There is a problem with the last stage of the amplifier section and the unit shuts down to prevent further damage. The most common cause if this is shorted output transistors. If you are comfortable with soldering, you should be able to repair this. Check the transistors attached to the heatsink for a shorted condition. Replace them in pairs.
Keep us posted.

SOURCE: Yamaha RX-V995 receiver turns on & then powers off 2 seconds late

I suggest you run self diag.  press [FM/AM] key + [Input mode] key and press the [power/standby] switch.

ps prt = power supply problem
dc prt = shorted output or leakly cap in channel
tmp prt means to hot on heatsink

you'll likely have to measure the resistances of the output FETs to find a short,

G'day i have had the Same Problem With a Yamaha RX-V750 That i have Repaired...You need to Replace the Three Capacitors On the Sub-Transformer Board...They Hold a Small amount of current to use to turn over the transistors and in turn trip a relay that boots the unit these go dry all the time in these units..replace them and it will work again no prob's
Components As Follows:
2x 2.2 uF 100V (C402) (C403)
1x 1uF 50V (C401)

The relay also could be damaged...or the diode across the Coil you may have to replace these too these faults could have been caused by a surge...or just faulty cheap and nasty components!!

One speaker doesn't work on my bose wave radio/cd?

I can only get one speaker to work continuously. The other works intermittently. If I move the power cord a bit, I can sometimes to get the one "bad" speaker to work. When it's working, the speaker sounds fine. This is driving me crazy. The power cord is new, so I think it has something to do with the power supply. The unit is a '95 Bose Acoustic Wave CD-2000.

Your first problem is to find out why the intermittent no-power problem. Honestly, that sounds like a loose conmnection somewhere. check all your grounds for clean and tight conditions Also, battery connections and alternator connections. Double check your power distribution center for any loose wires or poor connections. Once you solve that problem, then you can diagnose the other problems with poor idle and temp. gauge.

This intermittent kind of "no start" problem can often be a result of a failing anti theft system. Read this link and compare you symptoms. If you see a light that reads "security" when this happens, then this is definitely your problem.

Sounds like you have intermittent contact between the constant 12v and the ACC 12v power inputs. Remove the head unit, and make sure that the connections are properly insulated. (using inline **** connectors preferably)
