Since the protection circuit trips after 4-5 songs at high volume from LPs, it may be that the infra-sonic rumble common to phonographic recordings is driving your amp stages much harder than it sounds like they are driving. You can check this with watt meters for your speaker outputs, or by filtering such extremely low frequencies on the input. If you have an equalizer--especially an old one--it may have an infrasonic filter, or just cut the very lowest frequency available on the equalizer after running your phono pre-amp into the EQ and the EQ into your VCR2 input. This setup will verify if your problem is the infrasonic rumble, but I wouldn't use it as the solution. There are very quiet infrasonic filters available that would work better for the long term. And if you just cut the lowest EQ frequency out, you'll miss some good bass.

if your hooking up a phono input lead to a digital input lead it won't work analog and digital totally different setup. when you connect the leads up it just kills the input amp so there is no noise.

There is a switching IC inside this unit that may be the problem, but without seeing the actual unit and signal tracing, this will be near impossible to diagnose. If you have an oscilloscope, place an input signal on one of the inputs and trace the signal to the IC. It will be a TA9263 or something similar. You should see the signal on 2,4 or 6 pins. If you see the signal only on 2, then the IC is likely to be defective.
That would be my first attempt. Also check the power supply to that IC.
Keep us posted on progress.

I also have an AV-1. I suspect you might be missing the pair of bridging pins (looks like a shiny u-shaped stubby nail) inserted between the center of the "Pre-Out" and "Main In" rca connectors on the back of the unit. There are two sets, one set of left and right each for the Front and Rear. Without these, you will get no output from the unit.
Hope this helps.
