I have a VSX Pioneer. Somewhere either in the back of the rfeceiver or one of the speakers there is an errant wire touching the frame. Check the back of the receiver ald all of the speaker connections. The message is to protect the speaker, but can tke out a channel on the receiver if not corrected.

New pioneer vsx-517 keeps going into overload


Fastest way to test is to disconnect all speakers and turn up the vol. If it clips it needs service, then re-connect 8ohm speakers one by one and test until you find the speaker or channel that shorts. Then take that same speaker and hook it up to another channel and test, if it shorts, you know now it is either the speaker or the wire. Now, use a new piece of speaker wire from the same channel that caused it to short, replace the old and test. If it shorts, you've got a problem with the speaker. If your handy with a multimeter, check the resistance at the speaker and you will have your answer. If you are not familliar with a multimeter, just hook up a different speaker where the bad one is and test. It's just process of elimination. Hope this helps

Vsx-517 keeps going into overload mode!


Try this:
1. Turn off the receiver.
2. Disconnect all the speakers from the back of the receiver.
3. Turn on the receiver. Does it still go into overload? If so, it may need repair.
4. If not, turn the receiver back off and connect one speaker at a time and turn it back on.

Most likely one of your speaker cables is shorted out causing your receiver to get overloaded. Or, one of the speakers is damaged, having the same effect.
