The manufacturer is Panasonic which uses the brand name Technics for consumer products. The unit is shutting off because a problem is detected in the amp section. This particular model uses an Amp-pac which is a single component that contains the entire output amp. That part is likely to be defective. The part number is: RSN3306P and is available for $65.73 from

Russsound a c68 Will not stay on

These units must have a safety system that is detecting an overload, the same way a fuse would do by blowing. The fact that you are getting some power to the system means that any fuse must be intact.

You have to find the cause of the overload and correct it and the safety circuit should go back to normal. It's likely that the overload is a short circuited transistor or something like it.

You need to replace the IC Amplifiers that is near the channels when you open the player (make sure it is NO LONGER under warranty or else you'll void it). The cause perhaps is that your speakers have been shorted.

I have recently purchased a panasonic sa-ht65 receiver and speaker pack. when i turn the unit on it displays 'overload' and turns itself off. i have let it sit for a couple of hours but still not...

If it has never worked maybe your speaker connections are shorting.

Generally speaking, an amp attempts to protect itself from heat, shorts, overloads and operator exuberance by refusing to turn on or stay on.

Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.

You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.

If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.

If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it '*****'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.

Aiwa stereo system keeps shutting off when i turn the volume up... can anyone help

Sounds like system overload, Your stereo system has a protect on the amp to keep it from overload, so if it is shutting off you may need to unhook all your speakers, check all of you positive and neg wires and make sure all reds and blacks go to the right spot. Try lowering the bass and check to see if a certain speaker is the cause you may have two wires crossed. This is normal for some newer amps, They used to put fuses in these amps now it has a protector built in to make sure you don't blow out your channels. You may have a blown speaker in the mix that is causing this also you can try using crossovers on all your speakers.

Overload technics SA-GX390

It sounds like you have a wiring issue. Try looking for a bad wire or crossed wires between the positive and negitive jacks on the back of the unit.

Check the speaker wires going to the back of the unit. Any stray wires that cross can and will cause overloads to the audio output IC's. Make sure the wire strands are twisted tightly and then inserted into the spring clips.
