Question about JVC RX-6010V Receiver
For the longest time i could play my music as loud as i wanted on surround sound then one day i am listing and it cuts out i look at the reciever and it says overload so i turn it off and turn it on and it starts playing again but not at the volume i had it at when i try and turn it up it says overload again and cuts out turn it off then on again and each time its lower and lower so i turned of surround sound and was listening via left and right speakers and it was fine could play loud again but then again that day came where even with surround sound off i get the overload how do i kill the overload?
You've overdriven the amp too many times and most likely blew an output amp or two.
It will need service or replacement

The very FIRST thing to check is to make certain ALL of your speakers have an IMPEDENCE of 8 OHMS. (JVC - and others - say SIX ohms, but 8 is the "standard" you should use.) Virtually all speakers of even modest quality will include this specification on a label on the back of the speaker. You CANNOT run more than (2) TWO speakers with 4 OHMs impedence on ANY amplifier (technical discussion too long!) [NOTE: The internal overload protection system you mention is designed to help prevent permanent damage. However, you cannot re-set these systems yourself. Your dealer or authorized JVC service center must do this. Note, though, that if you have attempted to "cheat" the system several times, damage CAN be done that requires servicing.] But, before you take the unit in for service, there is one more "test": check for shorted and/or mis-connected/disconnected speaker cables/wires. Visually inspect connections at the receiver and speakers first. You might find something obvious! If everything looks okay, then disconnect ALL of the speakers; and reconnect and test them one at a time (at relatively low volume.) For example, reconnect the left front speaker, test the system; THEN add the right front, test the system,and so on, ADDING one more speaker each time - FIRST MAKING SURE EACH OF THEM HAS AN IMPEDENCE OF AT LEAST 8 OHMS! IF there is a short (or bad speaker) this will help isolate it. Hopefully one of these "fixes" will work for you. GOOD LUCK!
