Question about JVC RX-554V Receiver

1 Answer

"OVERLOAD" APPEARS I recently had a lightning strike that took out several of my components. My JVC RX-DV5 receiver has "overload" on the display. I tried disconnecting all output devices from the unit, cycling power and still no difference. I have downloaded the service manual but I have limited testing equipment other than multi-meter and basic items. Any possible solutions before I take it in for service? Thanks, Mike

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.

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.

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

JVC RX-7000V

As per the instruction manual the overload is there because of high volume condidtions and your over heating the unit. They recomend to turn down the volume shut off the reciver wait a few minutes and turn back on the unit with lower volumes. Second it states that the peaker wires or speakers could be shorted so make sure the speakers are good and the wires when you connected them to the reciver are not shorted. If all is hooked up properly then you have a problem in the output stage of the amp and its gonna need service unless you know how to replace the defective output devices? If not Go online at the addy I give you to find about service parts or service manuals.. Good Luck
