    I have a Technics SA-GX470 Receiver and I just recently purchased it used from a pawn shop, and I am starting to receive a message on the display screen saying "overload" then the system shuts down. What does that mean?

    mine says overload as soon as its turned on and it will also say overload without any speakers hooked up to it, but when it warms up for a few minutes it starts working , very weird..

Make sure your speakers are 8 ohm and not 4 or 2 (some receivers cant output properly to a 4 or 2 ohm load) and phased correcty.

I have a Technics su-g88 that had no sound unless it was turned up to the max. I was told that the amp chips rsn 3305 and rsn 310r36 were bad. I purchased them and installed them and now I get the overload...

Check the solder connections on the voltage regulators. They should be on the heatsink near the amp ic's. These have a tendency to break down over time.

My technics receiver stop playing, and display an overload message. what do you believe the is the problem ?

If you are getting an overload problem, it indicates an output load issue. Turn receiver off! remove speaker wires from the back of the unit, this will reset the protection circuit. Now power up and turn your volume right down, If the word overload stays off it means there is a short in the wire or speaker. But! if the word overload comes on "even with the wires and speakers dis-connected" it indicates a short in one or more of the audio output ic's or transistors.

My Technics AV Control Receiver SA AX530 is in overload

An amplifier should never be turn on without speakers, it will overload internally.
make sure speakers work and try again.

I have a technics sa-gx470 and when I power it on,the display reads (tuner,then the station,then reads overload) Is there a way to reset this unit??Or is there something that might have quit working?

Check for bad solder connections on the voltage regulators (attached to the heat sink)
It also could need an output IC (not cheap if available)

My technics sa-dx930 receiver stops working and an error message is displayed that says "overload" when i use the "b" speakers for my patio. This is a new problem. i have had the same outside speakers,...

Hey, I own one of these systems. Whenever I touch two of the wires together (shorting it out) the system shuts down and overload appears on the display. My suggestion is too check your wiring (especially in the spliced areas) or replace the wiring to the outside speakers and try it again. If you dont want to try that, take the wires you have hooked to the A speakers and see if they will work on the B setting (a quick troubleshooting technique). Please let me know if it worked for you. Good Luck!

Technics SA GX490 - Overload

yes it can be fixed , the input may have shorted and is now protecting the other circuits. it will need to be looked at and tested to make the repair. so calling and probably having to take it to, an electronic repair shop will need to be done.

Receiver overload problem

The overload message is indicating that a problem was found and the system is shutting down the output section to prevent further damage. There are probably poor connections on the main board and failing capacitors in the front end. Expect a parts vcost in the $10 range. Add in the local labor rate for the total repair bill.

Overload on Technics SA-AX710 Receiver

first of all, check all the capacitors. Other than that, it needs a repair guy to have a poke about inside it with a screwdriver. Has anything happened to it lately that could have upset it a little bit? such as a powercut or had anything done to the plug? (e.g. change of fuse, and put in one that was a different rating) And is it plugged into a surge protection socket, or a plain old fashioned electrical socket?
