Usually it has to do with a blown fuse if I remember correctly.

Oh, and the caps lock button is third button up from the bottom row, and on the very left on most U.S and international keyboards. it usually has a little light in it to tell you if it is on. Try hitting that button, just once, and see what it does :D

Something tripped the receiver into protection mode (kind of like a circuit breaker) to prevent damage. You'll need to try and figure out what caused it. It could be from a power issue, an internal issue, an overheating issue or even a bad speaker wire. If you've added or changed anything, you may want to investigate there first; but if everything has been the same for some time, I would start with the wiring. Pull out the receiver and the speaker wires. Cut new clean ends on the wires, strip the insulation and neatly twist the ends for the receiver (and do a good visual inspection to see if there isn't a small broken piece of wire stuck in the receiver). Do the same thing at the speakers. If that doesn't work, consider replacing the wiring (as it could have a break somewhere inside).

For an overheating issue, ensure that its not covered in dust and locked up tight in a cabinet. (It needs to get some air). In this instance, the receiver will go in protection mode after some time of use (because its getting too hot). This can also happen if its too dusty on the inside, so if you're careful, you can open it up and clean it with a can of compressed air.

To reset it, you'll need to unplug it (for 2 hours or more).

If none of those things solve the problem, then it may need a trip to the repair shop, or find a repair manual online if you are electronically inclined. (Or convert it into a boat anchor or a large paper weight). Quite often the repair costs are more than buying a new one.
