    We've had this units for several years and never had an overload problem until we got the PS3 for Christmas. Now, the unit continues to overload as various times. Running alone TV (DVR), PS3, or the DVD player. Any ideas? My guess is the cooling fan may not be working anymore.

    I seem to have the same problem. I use the unit very infrequently. Tried using it this weekend. Got it to work twice, but most often the "Overload" error notice appears upon powering-up. Very annoying. Looked for a reset button and unplugged several times. Did not fix. Help.

    I have the same problem with my unit-it is overloading as soon as I turn the volume up

I was able to fix this problem by replacing a fuse. Remove the cover (7 screws). Directly behind the fan are 2 boards with 5 fuses on them. The boards are 1 over the other. The fuse I replaced was labeled F5 and on the top board with the fuse facing down on the underside of the board. This also fixes the error code F70. The fuse is 8 amp, 125 volt and not available at Radio Shack.

I had the same problem, in that the receiver would automatically shut down displaying the "overload" message. I checked the 5 fuses inside, as well as ensured that the fan was working. I was using six 4ohm speakers + subwoofer. All the speakers other than the rear center channel and subwoofer were ceiling mounted in the room.

However, I decided to check the overall impediences of each speaker line to ensure that there wasn't an issue with the speakers. It turns out that the net imediances of the four corner speakers and the front center speaker were 5.7ohms because of resistance in the long lengths of speaker wire I had. However, the impediance of the rear center speaker was only 4.7ohm -- because the speaker line was much shorter.

Thus, the quick solution: ensure that all the speaker line lenghts are the same, (to ensure that the overall imediances of all the speakers are the same). Once I did that, the receiver started working beautifully -- full loudness surround sound working fantastic.

First: Never power up any amp with no load. Second, if possible, test the speakers themselves with a multimeter. You should get a reading of a few ohms on each...but not a direct short nor an open. Unplug the unit from the wall and repower it. It may reset something. If this doesn't resolve the issue, you've got a repair bill.

Samsung refrigerator error code 8E


IPM fault signal (this is caused by the overload of the MICOM INTO during motor action).

IPM: Integrated power module. The IPM controls the motor.

If the fault (low signal) happens to be sensed even once during the washing/rinsing stage, the motor stops immediately. However, during the dehydrating stage the signal is to be sensed, when the number of signals reads more than 6 per 500ms during the Washing or Rinsing cycle action.

If the motor stops working, in one direction ten times, "8E" Error is displayed.

During dehydrating, when the overload is sensed, the motor stops working at once and then feeds back to the initial stage of the dehydration unbalance sensing. When the feed back has occcurred twice, Error "8E" is displayed during the dehydrating unbalance sensing, No error happens by overload sensing. When it happens at more than 800rpm, the process is stopped compulsorily. Power Switch OFF can clear the overload error.

I have an Intel D845EPI/D845GVSR Motherboard with 512MB PC266 Hynix DDR1 RAM. When i switch on my PC, the system starts but, fails to display even the first screen that it is supposed to display...

Couple of items to try. First disconnect everything except the power and the CPU. Does it give you a beep code?

If not your either have a bad power supply, motherboard, or cpu. (Only if everything else is disconnected.)

Second, If you did get the beep code then put the memory in and see if the system starts to boot. (Try without the screen connected first. If it acts like is going to start turn it off, plug in the mouse, keyboard, and monitor and try again.) ** I have seen where an add on video card would keep the computer from starting so try with the on board video first.**

Third, start adding one extra piece at a time starting with the hard drive.

Let me know if this helps or not.

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.

Problem with HT-X250R

It sounds to me like it is overloaded and won't come back on because it has overload protection. Check your connections and make sure the outlet or power strip it's plugged into isn't overloaded. I would disconnect everything from it and turn the volume all the way down and try to get it to come back on. Let me know what happens.

Amplifier displays "Speakers are overloaded" and switches off

Either the amplifier protection circuit is kicking in due to a fault, or your speaker wires are shorting. Could also be a fault in a speaker - shorted turns due to overdriving. Check amp with speaker leads disconnected, and if OK, see above.
