Have you tried connecting speakers? What was the result?

Yes, when you turn the volume up on these amps (or when the output gets past a certain level) the cooling fan should automatically come on.

    Sounds like a faulty amplifier. Technics amplifiers use ICs in their output stage and over time the connections can come loose and cause faults like you're seeing.
    If you're handy with a soldering iron or know someone who is, remove the circuit board and check around the output stage (actually look over the whole board) and re-solder any connections that look like there are hairline cracks around the legs of any components. This is very common on Technics amps.

    Don't worry about the size of the speaker wire just yet. Even with undersized wire (as long as it is not too long) you should still get sound out of your speakers. Also make sure that none of the wires are touching each other or to ground.

Overload sa-tx50

Most overloads are caused by the main output devices. They will go short circuit if for example speaker wires have come into touch. Another cause is high volume or a faulty speaker. Or poor ventilation around the amp causing excess heat.
The only cure is to replace the device(s) generally located on the heat sink.

My Technics AV Control Receiver SA AX530 is in overload

An amplifier should never be turn on without speakers, it will overload internally.
make sure speakers work and try again.

My Tchnics Sa-Da10 shuts down on what appears to

Ahh technics. Technics always had overheating problems, trust me. Every since they started, their amps would get so hot they would hurt to touch. The reason the fan is not coming on seams to be something inside the circuit board. I'm sure that technics could fix this. If the fan works out of the receiver, then it must not be the fan. ;P

I would maybe get a computer fan, and just put it on top of the receiver and turn it on, or send it in for fixing. Also, do you have to crank the volume to get the speakers to play at your volume, and does the impeadence match the receiver. Because you may be pushing the receiver too hard.

Overload protection

Doe this always go into overload independent of the volume level? Try disconnecting the speakers completely and running the set. Does the set shutdown then too?

I have a Technics SA-AX610 receiver that says overload .

From the manual pg 27....... "The protection circuitry has functioned because the positive and negative speaker connection wires are "shorted," speaker systems with an impedance less than the indicated rated impedance of this unit are used or under severe use, such as loud volume, excessive power and in an excessively hot environment."

If all the speakers are connected proper and it still says "Overload!!!!!"

Your output amplifier module is most likely failed.

Technics SA DA20

I have a Technics SA DA20 control receiver. I was given it by an electronics workshop and it has this same error of OVERLOAD coming into the display when switched on. I removed the plates from underneath and re-soldered as far as I could all the points along the stereo amplifier ICs and as far as access would allow. The unit then worked normally for several hours. I was very pleased, and went out shopping!. But on my return after it had been off for about an hour, the same problem has come back. But my boss at the electornics workshop thinks it it just a dry joint, or series of dry joints. The unit is complex to dismantle, so patience and care is required in taking it apart and making a note or diagram of how it comes to pieces and how to re-assemble it after the board has been re-soldered. It does not appear to be a component problem or fault with the SVI power amplifier ICs.

Overload on Technics SA DA10

Cracked solder joints due to excessive heat cycling. Do not place in a shelf system. Top MUST be open for 1 ft. or better for proper convective cooling effect. Mine suffered same fate but repaired locally.
