I have moved my equipment interstate and on setting everything up my receiver will not stay on.
It will play for 10 minutes but when the volume is moved up the unit will turn off with a 'protect' message on the display.
This will continue to happen with a shorter time between it turning off until it is immediate. The receiver will stay on after pressing play but with speakers connected it will turn off straight away.
It has turned off by moving connecting wires, turning the volume up or down.
You have a short in the speaker wiring.
Simply put, the pos and neg (red/black ends) of your speaker wire are most likely touching somewhere.
The receiver has a short protection circuit that keeps you from blowing the receiver or your speakers.
Either try re-cutting the ends of the speaker wire, or if that doesn't remedy the issue, buy new speaker wire.

Still sounds like a thermal issue. Does the unit FEEL hot just before it dies? Make sure it gets a lot of clearance for ventilation and don't run too much auxilliary equipment from its rear power outlets.
They don't overload from missing speakers. I'm curious, what buggered the one speaker?
Examine all of your speaker wires carefully to be sure no unintended contact is made between them and anything else.
Is "overload" being displayed?
“OVERLOAD” starts flashing on the display.
Speakers are overloaded because of high volume.
1. Press STANDBY/ON on the front panel to turn off the receiver.
2. Stop the playback source.
3. Turn on the receiver again, and adjust the volume.
Speakers are overloaded because of short circuit of speaker terminals.
Press STANDBY/ON on the front panel, then check the speaker wiring.
If “OVERLOAD” does not disappear after turning on the receiver again, unplug the AC power cord, then plug it back in again.
If speaker wiring is not short-circuited, contact your dealer.
Do you have a route planned?? I have the GO630 and there's a powersave feature built in that turns it off when not in use, though it will stay on if I have a route set or if I'm moving in the car and it's tracking my location.
When you moved did you put somethink on it so that it does not have good ventillation through itself to keep it from overheating? Or set it down in a way that it does not have ventilation room under it? Some papers set on top of it or a pillow under it would block good cooling ventilation through it.
it could be a failing speaker causing the fault. Disconnect one speaker and run it to see if the problem persists and repeat with a different speaker until all speakers have been disconnected and the unit run to failure. If it stays ok, with a particular spkr off, it's the speaker. If it shuts down no matter which ones disconnected, it's probably a crack on the PCB which expands as it heats and causes shutdown.
