It is going into protection mode. Its a built in system that kicks in (to protect the amp and the attached equipment from catastrophic failure) under various circumstances - generally overheating, amongst others. You will have to take it to the service centre to diagnose the exact problem.

Check if the speaker terminals are shorting. There could be few strands of copper that are touching the body of the amp or shorting the terminals.

Check on the amp and speaker end
