Re: Overload

Try first to disconnect all of your speaker wires and turn back on this receiver. If the problem persists, you will need to take the unit into a shop and have the output circuits checked out, as these are all solid state parts that are soldered into the printed circuit boards and there are no user replaceable parts inside this receiver. Good Luck

Jvc reciever turns on and then shuts off with overload

disconnect all speakers and inputs and try again. If it stays on, you have a short in one of the connections. Try adding them one at a time and see if it shuts off.
If it overloads with nothing connected, you have an internal problem.

Why does my RX-8000VBK says overload when nothing is connected? Please help!

The audio outputs on your receiver are shorted and the parts must be replaced in order for it to work again, the overload protect kicks in to prevent further damage to the device when this happens.

I just purchased a used Denon AVR-3200 and have nothing hooked up yet but plugged it in on my kitchen counter and upon turning the unit on, noticed the error overload button was lit up but the unit did not...


I've had an AVR 3200 for about 10 years - occasionally (maybe once every 6 months), the error overload button comes on... for no real reason than i can detect (ghosts in the machine, maybe)... rebooting has always fixed it for me.

Receiver Overload error message

Disconnect all speaker wires at the receiver, then turn it on and up. If it stays on, check your speaker wires one by one, then check your speakers one by one. If it still cuts out with nothing attatched, it needs serviced or replaced.

Technics 940dx "overload"

Disconnect all speaker wires from the back of the receiver and turn it back on. If overload does not turn on, post a comment and I can walk you thru troubleshooting. If it does, your receiver needs to be serviced. Hope this helps

VSX-D608 Overload and shutdown

Overload is displayed when the amp draw is excessive, and can be caused by different faults.
when Overload is detected, the protection circuit will shut down the unit to prevent further damage.

The first thing to try is hard reset. Shut down the unit for about one hour to drain power completely.
This can fix minor problems that can cause overload, for example electrostatic charge accumulation on internal capacitors.

If that does not fix the problem, then you must find the fault.

Overload can be caused by shorted speakers, wrong impedance speakers, or by a contact on speakers wiring.
Check speakers connection and test different speakers with 6, or better 8 Ohms impedance.

Another test can be done by unplugging all speakers, and reconnecting and testing them one at a time, at a very low volume.
No more than two 4 Ohms speakers can be connected to the unit, or you will get overload.

If the speakers are OK, then preamp, shorted input/output connectors, main power supply or faulty output transistors can draw too much amps causing overloading.

In that case it is recommendable contacting Pioneer at the number listed on the owners manual.

Receiver overload problem

The overload message is indicating that a problem was found and the system is shutting down the output section to prevent further damage. There are probably poor connections on the main board and failing capacitors in the front end. Expect a parts vcost in the $10 range. Add in the local labor rate for the total repair bill.

Any hdmi channels i turn on cause an overload message on the receiver and it shuts down. How do i fix this

Check the surround setting you may have these HDMI channels set on. Try changing the audio setting to STEREO to see if you still get the OVERLOAD message. If it helps you may have faulty wiring on your surround speakers. This would explain why it was only happening on your HDMI settings.

After checking your wiring and not finding any problems you will have to narrow it down to the source of the problem. Disconnect your center channel and retry the surround mode and see if you get the OVERLOAD.

Once you find the problematic speaker you may need to replace it. Unfortunately it could be possible the speakers are unable to handle the power being provided by the receiver and may be sending feedback to the unit causing it to overload.
