Check your 'gains' and make sure you aren't running it at a low ohm impedance it can't handle.

How long does it take to shut off? Does it get hot? How long have you had the amp and when did the problem start occuring?

It sounds like something got fried, namely the output transistors...open it up and see if any of the components are physically damaged.

disconnect your subs and try to turn it on and see if it stays on

if they are dual voice coil, then no, you can wire two 4 ohm subs to a 2 ohm load. it cannot be done.

you need to wire to a 1 or 4 ohm load

play around with this seriously, its a great tool.
