Amp keep's sating overload


Have you tried disconnecting all the speakers and inputs and turn it on?
If it still shuts off you have an internal problem, if it stays on, connect one item at a time until it shuts off and that is the problem.

Tip

My Pioneer displays Overload


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.

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.

Hello you can download a manual from here:

http://www.foxconnchannel.com/ProductDetail.aspx?T=Motherboard&U=en-us0000108&Language=en-us

But BE CAREFULL when you change the cpu.
And remember to add some cooling paste.

Here is some info about the cpu:

http://ark.intel.com/products/27452/Intel-Pentium-4-Processor-511-1M-Cache-2_80-GHz-533-MHz-FSB

You will get better performance with a new mainboard/cpu
as this cpu only has one core.

Good luck

Kicker SX900.2 turns on then says overload and shuts off


Sounds like one or more of the output transistors have gone and the amp protects itself from any further damage.

I bought a new Cannon PIXMA MX320 with no ink cartridge, the manual says that it requires PG-210 & CL-211, while the cannon site says it works with the PG-510 and CL-511. so my question is do they both...


Hi,

Cannon cartidge numbers are quite confusing to say the least, but your printer requires PG-510 and CL-511, PG is black and CL colour.

The 210/211 is a non european number, but they are the same as CL-511 and PG-510.

Hope this helps.

I have an SU G91 Stereo Amplifier and it keeps overloading and shuts off the sound?


check if your speaker match your amp, and dont pump it until it hurt, easy on the volume, maybe your amp has an auto-protect circuit that automatically shuts it off when it senses overloading

Power overload


That is a good thing, your receiver is going into "protect mode" that means the receiver is shutting down to keep from damaging delicate internal circuitry, it is sensing a speaker bottoming out or some other electrical "short" that could be damaging!
Also could be from over driveing the amp and then it starts to overheat thus going into "protect mode".
If your speakers are "clipping or distorting" turn it down, you are going to ruin your amp. Good luck !

I have a eu3000 overload safety shuts it down at about 1100 watts


Can you verify the amp draw on the output? This gen should handle 25 amps continuous. I wonder if you actually have a bit more that 9 amps? It would be nice to check the frequency and volts too...A Fluke multi-meter can read these values.

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.

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.
