RT2760 overheats and shuts off

I have an RT2760, only about 1 year old. after using it for 20-30 minutes it shuts off and the speakers "pop". if i leave it shut off for 10 minutes or so, and turn it back on it will work for another 30'ish minutes. it's not because its using more power than it is rated for because it still does it even if the volume is on 1.

Everytime we turn the system on it says overload, what does this mean?

speaker wire crossed over or shorted against the other wire on one of the speakers probably. check the connections behind the amp and at each speaker with a flashlight and a magnifying glass.

Power turns off

Protect mode will kick in whenever a fault is detected.

You get the unit not powering up, and sometimes you hear a clicking noise, that is the protection switch that keeps shutting down the unit.

Causes that can start protect mode are:

Electrostatic harges on internal circuits.
Leave the unit unplugged for power for one hour or so, this will allow discharge.

Bad speaker wiring.
Check speaker wiring, try unplugging and plugging back, or start after removing one speaker at the time.

Internal fault.
Internal fault is the natural cause for protect mode. If all the above did not work, then the problem is a blown component or an internal fault. In this case the unit must be taken apart , tested and repaired by an experienced person.
If the unit is less than one year old, or if you want to get service, call Sony at the phone number listed on the product documentation.

I blew the tweeter in my jbl stadium floor standing speaker. I would like to know how to remove the cover in order to replace the tweeter. I already purchased the tweeter and it is on the way. I don't want to damage anything in my attempt to remove it.
