The basic reason for your receiver to fail as it does is because of too much heat. Check these:

Is there anything on top of the receiver, bolocking cooloing vents?

Check speaker cable. Make sure no sorts of any kind. A single strand short might no shut the receiver down but it would ne enough to make the amplifier section run too hot!

Are you using speakers A and B? If using both, surround sound must be off.

Have you been running it at max or near to volume?

It also could have been a one time thing so you need to reset the receiver. This is done simply by unplugging it at leaving it be for 2 hours or so. This will thouroughly discharge any capacitors etc that keep minimal power for settings.

There are other solutions such as CD/DVD connections, imedance ratings, etc if none of this works before it needs to be taken to a shop.

After resetting, check these out for your next email (hopefully not!). How hot is the receiver to touch at top? Is it failing with a specific input selected? How long before you get the error message? Does it turn on at all? (if not at all, disconnect the speakers, reset, if still doesn't come on, it needs shop work).

Hope this helps.

I have model #SA-GX190. Max volume level is 20 on this unit. When I put the level up to 5-7, the unit shuts down and displays "Overload" on the from panel. What causes this and what can be done...


Generally speaking, an amp attempts to protect itself from heat, shorts, overloads and operator exuberance by refusing to turn on or stay on.

Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.

You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.

If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.

If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.

Check for loose speaker connections as a root cause for intermittent shutdown.

Do you know how when you turn on the receiver that it produces a click one time and then the sound comes on? Well, mine is now producing rapid clicks and continues to do so in any mode I'm in. Can I fix...


Maybe if you diagnose the cause first.

Disconnect the speakers and try a different power source. If it keeps doing it you'll need a hands-on tech to look at it.

My Tchnics Sa-Da10 shuts down on what appears to


Ahh technics. Technics always had overheating problems, trust me. Every since they started, their amps would get so hot they would hurt to touch. The reason the fan is not coming on seams to be something inside the circuit board. I'm sure that technics could fix this. If the fan works out of the receiver, then it must not be the fan. ;P

I would maybe get a computer fan, and just put it on top of the receiver and turn it on, or send it in for fixing. Also, do you have to crank the volume to get the speakers to play at your volume, and does the impeadence match the receiver. Because you may be pushing the receiver too hard.
