    Technics SA-GX290 Displaing OVERLOAD SHUTDOWN. I have tested both Power Modules, Power transistors, Resistors and completely traced and tested all component's along the OVER LOAD Protection trac form connector CN903. Everything test good and their are no hot spots on the board or components. This connector connect's to the front control panel behind the Disply. Thier does'nt appear to be any seconday power past the fist stage relay. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Tom

    there is a short in the conection in the front panel re flow all points you will not see the break it will be hair line hidden and it expands when it gets warm causing the unit to short i have repaired 4 total so far this year alone all same issue some times i could not even find it testing it either due to the unit was cool and not being pushed hard enough to make it short

It sound like you have burt the output stage, for some reason, u have over driven the speakers witch blew the output ic's, or have shorted output. To check if you have shorted output unplug the speaker's and try again to see if the mesage goes away, if it doesn't open the top cover to see if you can see if there is burt resistor's or fuses, if so replace them, then try again without speakers connected, never put the volume to max, why ?????? I just don't get it. Leave the volume to 1 or 10% capacity to try thing's or with earphones this is alway's to me the best way, if for some reason it keep's burning fuses, then it is ether the power supply depending witch fuse blow's or the output amp stage, most likely if is the output amp, the two big ic's you see, check on googles with the part # on them this will tell you what they or.

Hope this helps

I have a Technics SU-G91 amp that is stuck in overload even with no input. I have tried giving it a quick blast of air to dust and still nothing. All help is appreciated!!

Your Technics unit will remain in the overload (protect mode) state until component failures have been corrected. The output stages and/or associated components may have failed.

If the receiver works at low volume, but goes into OVERLOAD and shuts down at higher volume, it means you are player the unit too long and too loud. Try yo keep the volume down to a reasonable volume.

How do I hook up a stereo reciver to the technics su-g91

I assume you want to use the SU-G91 as a power amplifier to drive your speakers. If your receiver has connections for inserting an equalizer (may be labeled pre-amp output and power amp input), remove the jumpers between the pre-amp and the power amp, then run cables from the pre-amp to the SU-G91 inputs. You can have an equalizer between the receiver and the integrated amplifier.
If this is not available, use the recording output (for a tape recorder on older receivers). Note that the volume control on the receiver will be bypassed with this connection.

Over load lite

The SU-G91 uses output IC's ( big black square things mounted on the silver heatsink inside the amplifier ). Once the overload light comes on, the output IC(s) are fried. It will have to go to a repair shop and the output IC's are expensive $80-$100 each !!

Sorry i don't have better news,

Tecnics SU-G95 stereo overloaded

Power down,disconnect the speakers and power back up. If it still say's overload, it needs to go to service. If not, check your wires, connections, and speakers one by one to hunt down the problem and correct. Hope this helps

THe amp has detected a problem and shutdown to prevent further damage. This unit has 2 amp pacs inside and one or both have failed. If you can solder, you can fix this yourself. The main amp pac is an SVI3206 and can be purchased online for about $60.

Keep me posted.
