Overload The overload message come on a shuts down the receiver when the volume is turned up. Receiver will come back on once system is turned off then on again, but volume levels are lower and system shuts down again at even lower volume. Is there a cooling fan in the unit to possibly replace?

Re: overload

No, one of your speakers is damaged (could be an amp channel went bad, but speaker is more likely). Unplug all spkrs, then plug one in and see if it acts normal when turned up. Repeat this until all speakers are hooked up or the culprit spkr is found.

Re: overload

Also could be speaker wire. Make sure all of the speaker wire is hooked up correctly and none of the wires touch awywhere.

Onkyo AV Receiver TX-SR503 While sleeping with earphones connected, the receiver shut down and the standby light blinked. I unplugged the power cord, reconnected power and the receiver shut down...

Have you provided adequate ventilation?
May be your receiver is running hot and when there is loud volume it is obviously getting overloaded. There are no fans inside 674, the only way to provide good ventilation is to keep the top of receiver clear for atleast 6 to 8 inches.

Hope that helps.....

I get my receiver to about 65% volume and it turns off

Check the ohm load for the reciever, then check to see what ohms are of the speakers. make sure they match. 4ohm to 4ohm, 8ohm to 8ohm. If unit feels hot when it shuts off, it's a themal overload, put in to keep the reciever from getting damaged. It comes back on when cool right? Overload could be on its way out and shutting down at a lower temp too

I purchased onkyo 606 receiver and Polk RM85 speakers and Polk PSW110 subwoofer. When I turned the volume on my receiver to max, the system shutdown. When I turned it back on, the sound is very low from...

Sounds like you popped the voice coils in the speakers when you overloaded the old receiver. The system shut down to protect the speakers, but it didn't shut down in time.

Time for new speakers or to have the old ones re-coned.

Good luck

Pioneer posted this on it's Canadian Web Site:

Poor wiring connections, bad wires or a bad speaker may cause this. As you increase the volume, you will increase the amount of current you are drawing from the receiver. To troubleshoot this issue, try the following:
  1. Disconnect each speaker wire connection. Inspect for any frayed or damaged wiring and replace it.
  2. Check the impedance of the speakers; make sure they are properly rated for your stereo. In most cases, they need to be 8 ohms. Only a few Pioneer receivers will support lower impedance.
  3. If the problem still continues, try these steps:
    1. Turn the receiver off.
    2. Remove one speaker.
    3. Turn the receiver on.
    4. Increase the volume.
If the receiver overloads, repeat steps 1-4 (selecting a different speaker each time). If you disconnect a certain speaker and the receiver no longer overloads, have this speaker checked at a service center. It could have a bad speaker component, like a tweeter, sub-woofer, or even a bad crossover.

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

JVC RX-7000V

As per the instruction manual the overload is there because of high volume condidtions and your over heating the unit. They recomend to turn down the volume shut off the reciver wait a few minutes and turn back on the unit with lower volumes. Second it states that the peaker wires or speakers could be shorted so make sure the speakers are good and the wires when you connected them to the reciver are not shorted. If all is hooked up properly then you have a problem in the output stage of the amp and its gonna need service unless you know how to replace the defective output devices? If not Go online at the addy I give you to find about service parts or service manuals.. Good Luck
