Question about Sony Audio Players & Recorders
This is a protection warning. There is a problem with the power output. Make sure that all the speaker wires are NOT shorting-out (visual inspection). You can test the cables with a multi-tester set at the 20 ohms scale, by unplugging from the amp and testing each cable pair at the terminal. They should read anywhere between 4 and 10 ohms resistance (resistance close to 0 indicates a short)..
If the Speakers/cables are good then you have a burned power output stage or a cold solder joint at the fault sensor circuit.

I have the same unit, although it's a bit old now. I used to get that problem, and the protection system is to protect the unit from over-heating, and the main cause is its because the unit is getting hot and/or there isn't enough air going through the rear of the unit. I found a fan or better air flow helps.
