    I found the problem shortly after my post.
    One of the speakers cord was disconnected and shorted. The problem disappeared once I reconnected the speaker.

9yr old model Maytag window a/c - just blows cold for 30 seconds - then blows warm. Was perfect until this happened. Is it worth fixing? What would be the usual fix for this?

The compressor is shutting off on overload after running for a few seconds. The overload cools down and starts the compressor running again until the overload heats up and shuts the unit off again.

Have recently had an "overload" displayed. Have

Usually receivers go into overload due to a bad speaker make sure you disconnect the speakers also to make sure its overloading from a bad speaker. If the unit still shows overload even with all speakers disconnected, then your main amplifier output has a short usually a shorted output transistor is the cause. Unplug the speakers one at a time to and turn the unit on after disconnecting one of the speakers , to determine which speaker is at fault.

When I turn my television on it auto turn off after a few seconds. The light starts to blink when I first turn the tv on and then the Tv just shuts off on its own.

Hello Sir, hi, you have power supply problems, this is caused by a bad part on the main board or on the power supply board to overload, when overload happens, the power supply immediately shuts down to prevent further damage. my first advice is call your dealer for proper service.

Display shows overload and receiver shuts down

This means that one (or maybe more) of the amplifiers is shorted. Remove all speakers cables and try again. If you get the same message that means that one (or more) amplifiers is fried. To find which and why you will have to open the unit and test the amplifiers.

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.

Overload Problem

If your rec'vr worked with the original front and rear speakers, the new speakers are either defective or ar the wrong impedance.
Also, I find this confusing: "I connected the wiring for 1 of the front speakers to the connection on the rear of the receiver". This may indicate wrong wiring connection. Make sure you have connected the speakers properly

overload, usually means that is overloaded. i've had the receiver for about 4 or 5 years now and never had problems with it. It was sitting ontop on my tv for those 4 or 5 years, and i haver noticed it untill just recently, (when i bought a new tv and i had to get a stand for it, and i had to stick the receiver in it)that is runs very hot, very quickly; Maybe that is the problem you are having now, that the thins is older and maight be able to handle it as it id b4. Maybe you made some changes to your set up: new speakers, etc.
