The most common problem found on FixYa for Audio Video Receiver's is:

My receiver say's "Protect" or turns on then off. What's wrong? Seven times out of ten it is a shorted speaker or speaker wire. To determine your exact problem, the first step is to disconnect all speaker wires "at your receiver" Next: Turn the receiver back on. If your receiver still says "protect" or turns off, it needs to be serviced. If your receiver stays on; reconnect your speakers one at a time and power back up after each speaker. You may find that after reconnecting all speaker wires it works! Most commonly the small braids of wire from the + to the - have touched and have caused the problem. In some instances, you noticed the problem only when turning the volume up. either way, make sure the exposed wires to your receiver are no longer than 1/2" long and are completely under the screw down terminal or slide in. When you've found the wire or speaker with the problem, your receiver will go back into "protect" At this point, disconnect the wire from the speaker at the speaker that may be causing the problem then test again.* Note* Make sure speaker wires do Not touch each other as this Will cause a short! If you turn the receiver back on and it stays on, you now know the problem is in your speaker itself. To test your speaker, you will need a multimeter. Set it to ohms resistance and touch the speaker terminals, if there is a short internally the meter will read "1......" If it's an analog meter, it will peg to the right. There's your problem. Now, within any speaker there are quite a few possibilities as to what could be causing the problem. Most common is a blown coil and the speaker needs to be replaced. Some speakers have internal crossovers (usually floor standing speakers) and may have a shorted or burnt board (usually very visible brown burn marks on the board) and can possibly be repaired if your handy with a soldering iron. Now, if you disconnect the speaker wire at the speaker and it still says "protect" Check your wire for the obvious cut or nail thru the wire if possible. If your system has wiring that runs behind walls, you may need to use your meter again. Disconnect the wire at both ends, keep the ends separated, put your meter on ohms resistance and touch probes to the + and - wires at one side. If the meter pegs to the right or reads "1...." the wire is shorted and needs to be replaced or repaired at the short. Hope this helps.

Also could be speaker wire. Make sure all of the speaker wire is hooked up correctly and none of the wires touch awywhere.

SOURCE: VSX-D608 Overload and shutdown

Overload is displayed when the amp draw is excessive, and can be caused by different faults.
when Overload is detected, the protection circuit will shut down the unit to prevent further damage.

The first thing to try is hard reset. Shut down the unit for about one hour to drain power completely.
This can fix minor problems that can cause overload, for example electrostatic charge accumulation on internal capacitors.

If that does not fix the problem, then you must find the fault.

Overload can be caused by shorted speakers, wrong impedance speakers, or by a contact on speakers wiring.
Check speakers connection and test different speakers with 6, or better 8 Ohms impedance.

Another test can be done by unplugging all speakers, and reconnecting and testing them one at a time, at a very low volume.
No more than two 4 Ohms speakers can be connected to the unit, or you will get overload.

If the speakers are OK, then preamp, shorted input/output connectors, main power supply or faulty output transistors can draw too much amps causing overloading.

In that case it is recommendable contacting Pioneer at the number listed on the owners manual.

SOURCE: overload issue

There is a problem in the front end that is allowing some DC curent to flow to the output section. This is detected and the amp goes into protect mode to prevent further damage to either the output section or the speakers. This is likely to be defective coupling capacitors and not an expensive repair. Figure on less than $20 for parts for this repair.

SOURCE: display shows overload and receiver shuts down

This means that one (or maybe more) of the amplifiers is shorted. Remove all speakers cables and try again. If you get the same message that means that one (or more) amplifiers is fried. To find which and why you will have to open the unit and test the amplifiers.

JVC 6010V shows zero on volume wont go up or down


This is a fault on the D/A digital / Analogue converter , The volume control being analogue is not processing the data in the cicuit and so there is no change in the level. This can be a fault in the IC - the D/A convertor IC which is not giving any response with the turn of the potentiometer. So check this within the amplifier ONLY if you are able to trace the circuit and replace the IC connected to the potentiometer.

Receiver shows overload because the volume was turned up all the way thank you gina


Hello,there is a chance that you have a damaged speaker and that the amp is ok. Check the unit with no speakers at all connected,if there is no overload displayed then its a bad speaker.

My reciever plays then cuts out


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.

Display shows an "Overload" error. Was working just fine up to now


Hi Mobius,

Two things cause the overload warning.
  • High Volume
  • A short in one of the speakers.

Reciver overload


More than likely, it's not a problem with the receiver. The fastest way to tell is to disconnect all speakers at the back of the receiver and turn it on. If it does not shut down, your receiver is ok and is just protecting itself from damage. If it stays on, check all your wiring, what it sounds like is that you have one or two braids of wire touching the other terminal. Not enough to cause a "short" at turn on, however, when you turn up the volume the resistance increases and creates a short, thus "overload" shows on the receiver. Hope this helps. If you need more help troubleshooting, post a comment and I can help more.

Overload


Firstly check all your speaker wiring. Any damage can cause a short which will overload the system. You might not notice it, due to the fact that when you have the system on loud, vibrations move the wires on the cabinets or elsewhere. So make certain there are no loose wires near the speakers terminals into each one. If all that is good go to the next check.
Check If the amp is getting VERY hot when the overload occurs, then it might have a faulty part(s) on it. This might have occurred if you have been using speakers that never did match the amps requirements in the first place.
