Question about Pioneer SX-205 Receiver
I have pioneer SX-205 and say "POWER OFF" and did work, someone can help me
SOURCE: Pioneer sx-205 gives a overload
Does it play normal on any sources, or do you only have the tuner and CD for available sources?
There are many different things that can cause this type of problem.
It could be bad solder connections on in the amplifier circuit or power supply, it could be a bad speaker or a bad output channel inside the receiver if this happens only when it gets turned up loud.
The overload warning happens when the amplifier circuit has excessive current or DC voltage on the outputs. Unfortunately the only way to determain if it is the speakers is to change them with other known good speakers and see if it still happens. But before buying any speakers you need to have the receiver ruled out as the source of the problem.
It can also go into overload if you have the wrong type of speakers connected, or too many speakers connected. Each speaker jack should only have one speaker connected toit. If you are using for example, 4 speakers connected to the "A" speaker jacks meant for just 2 speakers, it will create a load to the amplifier that the amplifier is not rated for.
Look on the back of the receiver and it will have listed the proper impeadance for your receiver. Most will say:
8 ohms or more "A" or "B" speakers
16 ohms "A" and "B" speakers
That means you must use 8 ohm or higher ohm rated speakers if you are using only speakers"A" or only speakers "B", but can not use 8 ohm speakers if you are using speakers "A" and "B" at the same time. Then they must be 16 ohm speakers.
Two 8 ohm speakers in one speaker jack is a 4 ohm load, that is why you can not use more than 1 speaker per speaker jack.
I hope you found this information useful, and if I can be more help just let me know.

You haven't mentioned what you have done to isolate the problem so I have to ask some stupid questions.
Is the Left Channel failing no matter what source you select?
N: Source problem / Identify the source and ask another question with new data
Turn the receiver OFF.
Toggle the Tape Monitor Switch up a number of times to wear off any oxidation. Any change?
While you're at it, toggle, twist and operate every control throughout its range for the same purpose. Lower the volume.
Turn the receiver ON.
Tune an FM station.
Swap the Left Speaker leads and the Right Speaker leads at the receiver. Did it move with the speaker?
Y: bad speaker or wire
N: internal receiver problem.
