Re: 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.

There's only 2 things then that can cause this. First look at the simplest thing, and that would be your audio output connection. If you are playing music from the same playback device that you also watch a movie from; the problem indicates that there is something wrong with the left output that you are using for movie playback. Check that connection on both ends, that it is connected firmly and has no sign of damage and that it is also plugged into the proper input connection on the receiver. If that is not the case; i.e; you have made a single digital connection and are enabling that digital output then the problem is more complex and involves the processing of the digital signal either by the player, or by your receiver. In which case the problem could be isolated to which device is the culprit by connecting it to another device that can perform the same surround sound decoding functions. Making the repair however is not something I know how to do.
They don't overload from missing speakers. I'm curious, what buggered the one speaker?
Examine all of your speaker wires carefully to be sure no unintended contact is made between them and anything else.
Is "overload" being displayed?
“OVERLOAD” starts flashing on the display.
Speakers are overloaded because of high volume.
1. Press STANDBY/ON on the front panel to turn off the receiver.
2. Stop the playback source.
3. Turn on the receiver again, and adjust the volume.
Speakers are overloaded because of short circuit of speaker terminals.
Press STANDBY/ON on the front panel, then check the speaker wiring.
If “OVERLOAD” does not disappear after turning on the receiver again, unplug the AC power cord, then plug it back in again.
If speaker wiring is not short-circuited, contact your dealer.
Let's deal with the turntable sound first - unless it's a self-preamplified model you would have to get an external phono-specific preamp to use with this receiver. Without one you'll get microscopically weak, tinny sound from the turntable. Google "RIAA curve" to see why.
As far as the CD sound through the Blu Ray player... for one thing it is flat, as in two-dimensional stereo. Compared to genuine surround from a movie it would be a letdown.
Sounds like a possible power short, especially if you have speaker cables connected to the receiver but not to speakers -- leaving the ends more likely to short (even via a single thin copper strand across a millimeter or two, when the voltage peaks). The receiver's message says "Check Spkr Cables," right? (They do mean the Speaker Cables!) Most receivers have a built-in power overload detection/protection shut-off circuit to save you from such mistakes.
Check the speakers impedance. it should be greater then 6ohm otherwise you overload the system. Also, if the speaker sytem is rated (in Watts) below the amplifier's power it overloads the amp at higher volumes.
try turning the unit off in standby mode then hold down the enter button and then the power button for about 10m seconds that should reset the unit depending on how new the unit is it sometimes has a digital saftey setting but i doubt that would cause it to do what you are saying
