Question about JVC RX-554V Receiver

1 Answer

JVC RX-DV5SL I recently had a lighting strike and now my receiver turns on and then shows "OVERLOAD" in the display. I have electronics experience and can replace parts but i have limited testing equipment. Can this be a simpple fix ie, power supply capacitor or voltage regulator? I have dwonloaded the schematics on so I am able to find specific parts. Any help is appreciated.

Disconnect the output devices and see if it clears. If it does, connect up the disconnected devices up till the reciver overloads again.

When i turn on receiver JVC rx-6032v it says overload

Overload indicates a short in the audio output semiconductors, check speaker wires for shorts, if okay! you will need a professional to assess cost to replace outputs.

Did you replace the fuses with exact same type as the ones before? Some receivers can be picky over what you put in them.

Overload displayed about 3 seconds after i turn it on

This model had lots of problems with bad solder connections! Check for most of them in the power supply and/or amps. Or take to a good shop!

My reciever plays then cuts out

They don't overload from missing speakers. I'm curious, what buggered the one speaker?

Examine all of your speaker wires carefully to be sure no unintended contact is made between them and anything else.

Is "overload" being displayed?

“OVERLOAD” starts flashing on the display.

Speakers are overloaded because of high volume.

1. Press STANDBY/ON on the front panel to turn off the receiver.
2. Stop the playback source.
3. Turn on the receiver again, and adjust the volume.
Speakers are overloaded because of short circuit of speaker terminals.

Press STANDBY/ON on the front panel, then check the speaker wiring.

If “OVERLOAD” does not disappear after turning on the receiver again, unplug the AC power cord, then plug it back in again.
If speaker wiring is not short-circuited, contact your dealer.

Display shows an "Overload" error. Was working just fine up to now

Hi Mobius,

Two things cause the overload warning.
  • High Volume
  • A short in one of the speakers.
