Parasound AVC2500 shuts down

Hi, I have a parasound AVC2500 proccessor that shuts itself down. It doesn't seem it have a patttern but first the volumne goes down to zero then it shuts itself off.I can turn it on immediatly and it may last through a movie or it may happen a few more times,anyone else experiance this? or know what's happening? or a cure? thanks Mike
Had the same problem years ago. All i can remember is something inside was overheating and causing the unit to shut down. Sent back to Parasound and they added a small heatsink. All I had to pay was shipping. Been working great ever since! Call Tony at Parasound.
Did you touch the top of it, to make sure its overheating?
make sure its overheating?

Is this a serious question?
