Check that the speaker wires are securely connected to the binding posts, and if you are using bare strand wire on them that there are no loose strands that can touch the chassis or other terminals or other wires.
Also check that your speakers are of a compatible Ohm rating for the unit. If you have any equalizer, tone controls or "bass boost" effects enabled, turn those off. They all require more amplifier power, thus possible overload can result.

Pioneer amplifier vsx-d512 overload message


This indicates the audio output stage in the receiver is loading down and triggering the overload protection circuit to kick in. Check the speaker wires for shorts, if okay! you will need a professional to assess the cost for repair.

Turn on, in a few seconds Flashing "OVERLOAD"


Overload  usually only appears if you have been using higher volumes for a period of time and this trips to protect your speakers and amplifier. Turning off your amplifier and leaving for a while and it automatically resets. other wise a would check your speaker cabling to see if any wires are  touching shorting out the circuit. Try removing you cables from your amp then turn on. If it turns on without Overload appearing the problem is between amp and speakers. Check your cables at both ends and while at it give them a clean then hook up everything ( Amp should be off) then turn on the amp and see if you get message. If you still get this message you could have  dry/ broken soldering on the inside and the amp is detecting a dc short in the system. This seem to a common thing these days. In which it will be a repair job.  Low impedance speakers or speakers that have a wide impedance swing when they are running at high volume can cause a amp to trip if it hasn't got enough current to drive low impedance speakers. Hope this has been of help.

Overload


Have you checked your wiring connections? Wires could possibly be touching each other making it short out and giving you that "Overload". If not that then I would say it could possibly be a fuse that has gone bad inside. ??? Just some suggestions. The reason I say that it could be the wiring is because when I hook up a system and the wires accidently touch each other it overloads the system past a certain volume. Again I would check my wires first and move on from there.

Overload message in technics model SA- EX400P-K I have an older Technics system. It has worked great for years but now I get overload whenever I turn it on. Have changed speaker wires but no use. Any...


The overload message is the old version of "protect" mode. This means that a problem has been detected in the output amp section and that section is shutdown to prevent further damage. Your unit uses amp-pacs. One or more are bad. These are marked RSN3305P and cost about $66 each.

Overload on Technics SA DA10


Cracked solder joints due to excessive heat cycling. Do not place in a shelf system. Top MUST be open for 1 ft. or better for proper convective cooling effect. Mine suffered same fate but repaired locally.
