Question about Technics SA-EX300 Receiver
After playing a cd my receiver stopped playind and displayed "overload shut off power",
SOURCE: Overload on Technics SA DA10
This is an old message so you may not be interested any more.
There are a couple of possibilities; the high power of this unit seems to fry speakers fairly often and although they mostly fail 'open,' they can overheat causing the voice coil to lose its insultation and cause a short instead.
This may also be caused by the failure of one or more output modules causing the power supply to limit and give you the overload indication.
If an output module has failed and the unit is not limiting current, it may destroy speakers too.
Some knowledge and a decent meter would reveal the nature of the failure pretty quickly but describing the steps necessary to troubleshoot this is a little beyond the scope of this forum.

The question is, do you hear any sound? Is just the display off or is the entire unit shutdown? Can you tell?
These displays are known to develope poor solder connections at the power input and ground pins. If you can solder, open up the unit (unplugged of course) and examine the pins for the display. This will be on the PC board attached to the front panel. The pins at either end of a long line of pins will be the power and ground pins. Reasolder those pins, taking care not to short the pins together and try the unit once done. If that does not resolve the problem (assuming it is just a display problem), update this with as many details as you can about the behavior of the unit and we'll look further.

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

If you are getting an overload problem, it indicates an output load issue. Turn receiver off! remove speaker wires from the back of the unit, this will reset the protection circuit. Now power up and turn your volume right down, If the word overload stays off it means there is a short in the wire or speaker. But! if the word overload comes on "even with the wires and speakers dis-connected" it indicates a short in one or more of the audio output ic's or transistors.
