No access panel

Ok I looked over the technics sa-gx 500 no access panel on the bottom of the stereo like you said, you have to remove the top then the front then I guess the back or maybe you can get to the screws after you remove the front and top, all the screws on the bottom are inside it pointing out through the bottom, the hundreds of solder points are on the sides the bottom and the front, just to remove the feet you must go inside, the screws are on the bottom underneath all the boards your suggestion is good but will be very much work,before I but tons of time into this my boyfreind says to remove the top cover when it locks up to see if it will cool down if it does then he will wire in another fan

Since it has no access panel, you will need to remove the board. The front display will also need to come off. I think this is one of the units that the front display plugs into the main amp board with a couple of connectors the go directly into the boards. You must be careful taking it apart. Make sure all the screws are taken out before you try to pull the boards out. It is easy to crack the board if it is still screwed into the frame. The display also has several screws holding it on, make sure they are all out.

I am in the process of moving right now and do not have access to all of my information. I just moved from Detroit to San Antonio and have not unpacked everything yet. Once I have all my stuff orginized I may be able to offer more help.I might have a service manual.

I believe this question is in response to a premium paid question. If so, you need to make all posts about it on the original thread until uou have given somebody a "FixYa!" for the help. At that time it would be more appropriate to have another thread to continue the help with whoever you have given credit to for this problem. So far, it appears that you have not rated my first answer. I would like to continue helping you, but it really would not be fair to me if I helped you with this and never got the credit for it. I hope you understand, but unless you rate my answer as FixYa! on the other thread, somebody else will get the credit, not me. I will also post this answer on the other thread. Then you can accept it if you want to.

Can I connect an external Technics SH-8036 Stereo Graphic Equalizer to my Technics SA-500 receiver?

You can but you will need to use one of the tape loops to do so. That means you will also have to use the tpae monitor switch of the front panel. Just get 2 sets of interconnects and run one from the tape out to the input of the equalizer and the other from the tape in to the out put of the equalizer.

Yes, it is hooked up using the (cassette) tape inputs and outputs. Use the tape monitor switch on the receiver to switch the EQ in or out.

Take a look at the bottom of the unit. Remove the access panels from under the amp ic section and look at the solder connections on the amp ic's. If they have round rings around them, they are bad and need to be resoldered. This can also happens on the voltage regulators that are on the heatsink with the amp ic's.

All sources or just one? Make sure the Tape Monitor isn't engaged unless you're using an external tape deck or processor. A turntable will only work on the PHONO input.

Receiver says power overload, turn system off

It probably needs soldering of the voltage regulators and/or output IC.
I think that model has an access panel on the bottom (it may need to be cut out then rotated and screwed back on when done).
If it doesn't have the panel the main circuit board needs to be taken out to access them.
The regulators and output IC are mounted on the main heat sink. a little soldering and it should be good as new.

My SA-AX710 overloads intermittently. The problem is a broken solder joint between a pin on one of the power transistor modules and the circuit board. To fix it, I removed the circuit board from the case and resolder the borken joint. Opening the case is easy. First remove the top of the case. Then remove the 3 screws in front. The front panel can then be pulled off. After that, remove all screws holding the connectors on the back. The circuit board can be detached from the case by removing the screws from the top of the board. Broken solder joint is probably one of the most common problems with modern electronics.
