    My GUESS would also be a short without looking at it. Alot of decks have a short circuit protection in them where if they short out they will shut off temorarily even tho the display still works, some of them even have a nice feature where they with make a "buzzing" noise to let you know thats happening. Could be alot of things. Is it just one speaker? Does it do it after playing the stereo for awhile or just a few minutes?

    You could see if it is a loose wire, play the stereo and wiggle the wires around. Its a simple test. Check the splices to make sure thier not touching anywhere or have come loose. I always solder splices in a car for just that reason. Check the wiring at the speaker itself, especially if its just one of them.
