Question about Yamaha RX-V392 Receiver
The first thing I can say is that the CD player should not have been connected to the phono jacks as this is for a record player, therefore you amplified the CD player output greater than what it should have been!
Next a damaged loudspeaker could cause problems to the amp. A simple test is to connect each speaker (disconected from the amp) for a second to 1.5 volt battery. You should hear a pop sound from each of the speakers and make certian that each unit inside the speaker pops too. If the speakers are 8 ohm set that switch at 8. Never connect 6 ohm speakers with it at 8! Check the cables are good and are not shorting out.
If I was you I would have a look inside the unit and have a look at the semi-conductors on the heat sink. You might see damage! If they are transistors you can put an ohm meter on the transistor terminals (B,C,E) (amp power off). If any act like you have just touch the test probes together, you have a shorted part and the reason it shuts down.

Testimonial: "Thank you, it helped me continue try with a different set of loudspeakers (8Ohm)on the jacks for the second set of speakers out (B). It worked fine. Then I replugged the original set of speakers (6ohm) on A and made sure + line out goes into + in on the speakers. It worked again. However, before this incident I could use speakers of 6ohm on A and 8ohm on B at the same time. I am not sure what was the problem and if there is stil some form of intermittent fault or damage..."

Anything that has a headphone output can be adapted to feed an RCA cable pair for standard stereo to an amp or receiver. Get a cable like the one described here:
and connect it into any available analog input EXCEPT "Phono". Turn the MP3 player volume up.
