A recent problem has occurred whereby when I switch on my system(amp, CD, TAPE DECK, DAB tuner and analogue tuner) as soon as the amp has warmed up (3-4 seconds) within 1/2 a second of sound coming from the speakers, the amp cuts out.
The amp itself locks up - unable to change inputs, etc and the light around the standby button flashes. All the other components remain active and fully operational (as far as I can make out). All I can do is switch the system off via the remote or the standby button on the amp.
I've disconnected the power and reset the amp using the master power switch - but to no avail!
Referred to the manual - but no help - anyone know what might be going on????

Having looked at the TV, you will have a lot of problems trying to connect to that amp. The TV has a digital optical out output only. The disc player you mentioned will also be out only. You need a optical "in" for them both. The TV has no analogue out sockets. The only chance you might get any sound out is via the scart socket. If that is fully wired, then the scart might produce L&R analogue out. A scart plug with RCA connections (make certain it has both audio in and out) might produce some sound for the amp.
Otherwise no chance!
The amp you have was not made to work with digital signals. The TV will produce high quality Dolby 5.1 sounds. Assuming you get the scart to produce the sound, then you will only get stereo sound, little better than the TV itself!
I therefore recommend you get a decent digital amp that you connect all your future devices too. One that has HDMI connectors as well as at least two optical inputs.
Onkyo make some excellent models. For example this model would do the job Onkyo TXSR444 Home Cinema Receiver.
For connecting these to your amplifier you need 4 Stereo RCA Cable.
1.Connection for cd: Take one of the RCA cable connect the one end (red/white) jack to the line out of your cd and connect the other end (red/white) to the CD input of Your amplifier.
2.Connecting the tunner:
Take one of the RCA cable and connect the one end (red/white) jack to the line output of you Tuner and connect the other end (red/white) to the TUNER input of your amplifier. 3. Connectiong the tape deck:
Now you have two RCA cable. Take one of the RCA cable and connect the one end (red/white) jacks to the PLAY out of the Tape deck and connect the other end (red/white) to the TAPE 1 play input of your amplifier.
Now connect the last RCA cable. Connect the one end (red/white) jack to the record input of the TAPE deck And connect the other end (red/white) to the TAPE 1 Record input of your amplifier.(this connection will help you to record to tape from cd or tuner. if you are not interested in recording then you can avoid this connection.)
Now you can select these three items from the frond plannel control switch of the amplifier.
Odd one! Normaly you would loose a channel if the main amp was down, or the pre-amp was. But clearly the main is working. The only conclusion is that there must be more than one pre-amp and that's why the Tape section works. The only way to solve this one is to go inside and trace the imputs to where they join the PC board.
A helpful hint is that if you touch the audio section with a srewdriver, it will buzz! And since you have two channels which copy one another you can work out where the fault is. Because if it buzz's in the good channel, it should in the same place on the bad one.
WARNING don't stick your srewdriver on power parts, and don't short any part out with it.
Could be a fuse, or a connection from the power supply to the circuit board. Where is this installed? Has it taken any abuse? If it just sits idle and doesn't move, it could be a fuse, and it could be a circuit board. The biggest problem is it's TEAC...haha, just kidding.
