Default Car Deck torns off

Hi

I purchased a Kenwood (KDC-MP428) CD car deck a 2 weeks ago.

Features:

mos-fet amplifier (50*4)
external media control
digital radio ready
aac/wma/mp3
auxilliary rca stereo input
fluorescent diplay
sirus ready, sub-xf level control

i installed it and it worked fine for two weeks but yesterday, it just turned off while playing the cd. so i tried to turn it on by pressing the power button. didn't worked. so i opened it up checked the fuse at the back of the cd player. all was fine. so i removed the plug from the car deck(plug with all te wires for speakers, battery, ground etc). i checked for the loose wire. but all was fine. so i put the plug back in and turn on the car key. it worked. it was on standby mode. it comes to standby mode when ever i remove it from the power. so it was on standby mode. so i pressed the mode button(src button) to change it to cd. and it comes to cd mode says reading and it turns off. Again i tried to turn it on by pressing the power button, didn't worked. so again i removed it from the power wire and put back in after a minute power turns on again in the car deck. and o i changed it to tunner from standby mode. again it turns off. i tried again, this time i didn't chaned it to any mode, i left it on standby for a minute. it stayed on. i changed the settings like speaker volume. it didn't turned off. i changed it to tunner, it turned off.

i don't know whats the problem

can anyone help me here
i'll really Appreciate ur help.
thanks

Sounds like you have shorted speaker wires. Once some output goes to the speakers, the amp senses that there is a short and shuts off; with no output, it stays on.
