I Have a VSX-917V-k When I put up the volume past 25 it works for a minute or two and then its says overload and shuts off. The speakers are older than the system but they r 15" Technics which work at 8...
Just check your speaker cabling again. Make sure that all of them are seated properly, none is touching each other or the body of receiver. Rewire if necessary..
Are you using banana plugs for connecting speaker or just directly. Some times even a little tiny wire touching the receiver could trigger the protect mode. Be careful, since protect mode is sometimes not fast enough and it could blown a few trasistors in the power circuit.
If everything else seems all right and still your receiver shut down when you raise the volume then it possible that there are bad connections on the main board that are set in.
This would generally happen if the system is slighly old or have dry solder and when you raise up the volume. This should be a simple repair that will not require parts. If you can solder, you will be able to repair this yourself. I could guide you a bit.
If not, then a local service center will change the local labor rate.
Hope you can sort out your problem with the above trouble shooting.
Let me know if I can guide you further.
Thanks for using FixYa!
