Question about Audio & Video Receivers
I have a Technics AV Control Receiver SA-DA20...Under 2 yrs old. Was playing then cut out.Msg reads OVERLOAD. followed manual troubleshooting guide...NOTHING. disconnected ALL wires, checked speakers, GOOD, Wiring/GOOD on all other. Have unplugged this and left for 5 months. STILL NOTHING. Was a GREAT system! Had no other problems with it. Any sugestions? Is it worth taking in to be serviced?Any help would be SOOO appreciated!
Sounds like you have a "nuisance shutdown", caused by failure of the speaker protection circuits which are notorious for problems. Unfortunately, more and more newer electronic units fail this soon. It's not really the manufacturer's fault, it's more that individual electronic parts have gotten cheaper to compete in the marketplace, and are more likely to fail than in the past. Unless you used to play the receiver really cranked up (which would suggest failure in the output circuits), you have a nuisance shutdown problem. At any rate, I would question the circuit design and probably buy a better brand (such as Denon or Sony) rather than take the chance of spending money and having it fail again soon. Just my educated opinion (technician for 35+ years).
