Generally speaking, an amp protects itself from heat, shorts, overloads and operator exuberance by refusing to turn on or stay on.

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 'naked'. 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.

You shouldn't hook things up and guess how they work.

BTW "KRV1074" doesn't bring up a valid link anywhere in the universe except your request.

In the setup menu are the speakers set to large or small? On some receivers if you have it set to large all the bass is directed to the right-left fronts.
On my pioneer receiver if the speakers are set to large the sub-pre-out only works if the receiver is in a surround mode, if its in stereo mode and the speakers are set to large the sub-pre-out is dead. If the speakers are set to small the sub-pre-out works all the time.
Also, some receivers won't send a signal to the sub-pre-out if there is no LFE discreet signal info from the dolby digital or dts bitstreem.
For example I have several older dvd's that light up the L C R SL SR icons on my receiver, but don't light up the LFE icon. I have other older dvd's that just light up the L and R icons meaning they are only recorded in stereo like a vhs tape recorded in dolby surround.
In my basement I also have a kenwood dolby digital receiver.
I've noticed that when a dvd only lights up the left and right icons the pioneer will automatically switch to dolby pro logic surround. The kenwood will only send the signal to the left and right fronts (stereo). If I manually switch it (kenwood) to dolby pro logic I'll get sound from all the speakers just like the pioneer, but it does'nt do it by itself.
Most receivers that have a tape monitor won't work in surround mode with the tape monitor on. The pioneer will let me use the tape monitor with dolby pro-logic but won't pass through a dolby digital signal with the monitor on.
Hope this helps.

Not a locked mode, your receiver is in the protect mode.

Try disconnecting the speakers and see if it turns on and stays on. If it does, yu have a bad speaker connected. Then you need to start connecting speakers one at a time, turning the unit off to plug a speaker in and then turn it back on after the next speaker is plugged in. When you get to the time when it goes back into protect, the last speaker you plugged in is bad. Take it in to be checked and fixed if possible.

If the unit goes into protect with all speakers disconnected you have a problem with the receiver. Most of the time it will be the amplifier circuit, sometimes other problems. In any case, it will need to be serviced by a professional technician. Sometimes these problems can be fixed for as little as $65 if it is very minor. In more severe cases it could go up to $200, it just depends on what the exact problem is and what kind of rated the service center charges. I have seen these type of receivers sold on ebay for as little as $75 used. That may not be a bad option, because you should be able to use your speakers with most any other type of stereo receiver.

If you need any more help or advise on what you should do with the receiver I will be happy to assist you. If this information was helpful to you a rating of "FixYA" would be appreciated.
