Generally speaking, an amp attempts to protect itself from heat, shorts, overloads and operator exuberance by refusing to turn on or stay on; or it may turn on but produce no audio to the speakers.
Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.
You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.
If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.
If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'nekkid'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.
Check for loose speaker connections at the speaker as another possible root cause for intermittent shutdown.
Since you had to change the fuse to get it to power on, chances are you have a damaged receiver. You can try resetting the system (instructions below) but I doubt this will provide relief. When a system is doing what yours is, it is more often than not a sign of a short in the system causing excessive power consumption. Many times such problems in the final amplifier section, in the form of shorted output transistors. This most often happens from running with the wrong impedance load, shorted speakers connected, loud volume with inadequate ventilation (high heat conditions) or running the receiver without speakers connected.
Try resetting using the front panel controls. Power off. Then holding the 2 channel button down, power on. You see an abrv reset message. If after doing this you still have the same issue, it's time to investigate repair facilities or due to possibly high cost of repairs simply retire the unit and get another.
That is the common symptom of the defected STK-IC in power amp.section
that busted already or just a loose connection.First try to resolder
the pins of STK-IC and also all component parts joint in power amplifier section if its works! if not that is the time you replace
it, so it works normal again.
Check for bad solder connections on the display itself. If none use a voltmeter and check dc voltage on the first and last pins of the display. should be about 20v dc. If you don't have the dc voltage check for a bad transistor or resistor in the power supply. It could also be other thing but this is where you should start.
