Technics SA GX490 - Overload

My Technics reciever has been working well for years, I suppose it is getting a bit old. Last week I connected ny laptop via the headphone jack and after a while the sound stopped and "Overload" appeared on the screen. Now any application, c.d., tuner, video is triggering the Overload. Do you know if this can be fixed?

Yes it can be fixed , the input may have shorted and is now protecting the other circuits. it will need to be looked at and tested to make the repair. so calling and probably having to take it to, an electronic repair shop will need to be done.

Overload sa-tx50


Most overloads are caused by the main output devices. They will go short circuit if for example speaker wires have come into touch. Another cause is high volume or a faulty speaker. Or poor ventilation around the amp causing excess heat.
The only cure is to replace the device(s) generally located on the heat sink.

My Technics AV Control Receiver SA AX530 is in overload


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

Overload protection


Doe this always go into overload independent of the volume level? Try disconnecting the speakers completely and running the set. Does the set shutdown then too?

Thanks,

Technics SA-DA10 jumps into overload after 10 minutes


Have you tried connecting speakers? What was the result?

Yes, when you turn the volume up on these amps (or when the output gets past a certain level) the cooling fan should automatically come on.

Technics SA-GX490 reciever


Disconnect receiver from power and open the unit. Localize fuse that is placed on small PCB between main transformer "big one" and rear panel.Fuse's amperage is 1.6 A .I'm quite confident that fuse is gone.If so, replace it with the one of same amperage and try unit.
My unit has done exactly the same to me with no reason.

Technics SA DA20


I have a Technics SA DA20 control receiver. I was given it by an electronics workshop and it has this same error of OVERLOAD coming into the display when switched on. I removed the plates from underneath and re-soldered as far as I could all the points along the stereo amplifier ICs and as far as access would allow. The unit then worked normally for several hours. I was very pleased, and went out shopping!. But on my return after it had been off for about an hour, the same problem has come back. But my boss at the electornics workshop thinks it it just a dry joint, or series of dry joints. The unit is complex to dismantle, so patience and care is required in taking it apart and making a note or diagram of how it comes to pieces and how to re-assemble it after the board has been re-soldered. It does not appear to be a component problem or fault with the SVI power amplifier ICs.

Overload on Technics SA DA10


Cracked solder joints due to excessive heat cycling. Do not place in a shelf system. Top MUST be open for 1 ft. or better for proper convective cooling effect. Mine suffered same fate but repaired locally.

Technics SU-G91 OVERLOAD PROBLEM


I had the same problem. As soon as the volume reached about 24db it would go into overload. I was able to fix it by soldering all the connections on the larger power module. The one connected the the heat sink. When I took it apart there where several solder points that had come loose.
