Pioneer amp turning off and then no picture

My sons Pioneer surround amp turns off if he has it on all day and when that happens we can't seem to get the picture back although we can still hear the sound.

Am presuming it could be over heating, hence why it goes off as the next day all is fine again.

It's sat on his desk with nothing on top or around it but is on all day as all the sources go through it via HDMI, so to watch anything or play games the amp goes on.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Dave

Not ideal but get a small desktop fan to blow cold air into it to cool it down and see if it does the same.
I had an ATI 4850 GFX with failed fan. This is what I did to keep the PC working as otherwise once it hit a certain temp then off the PC went.
Using a Temp monitor, it was reaching above 100c before it shut down.
Saved me buying a new GFX Card and the PC has now been retired still with the ATI GFX 4850 installed..

does the amp not have some sort of pass-through feature? if so, maybe you could set it to pass through one of the sources when off to give it a chance to cool down whilst still being able to play a game etc...

Not sure on pass through, will have a look. For now just pulling the HDMI cable and plugging it into TV which is not ideal.
