There are only 2 things you can do as the end user.

1. is to disconnect the speakers and see if it turns on without the overload error. If it does, you may just have a bad speaker or speaker wires that are shorted together.

2. Unplug the unit from the wall and wait about 2 or 3 hours before plugging it back in. This will reset the microprocessor and if the micro has any minor software glitches, it will clear them.

The most likely problem is that one of the output amp IC's is shorted and it is going into protect mode.

Another possibility is that the solder connections on the amp board are bad. These Technics receivers are very well known for that.

If the first 2 suggestions do not help, you should take it in to a repair center to have it looked at by a professional unless you are have some very good soldering skills, and have a multimeter to check some voltages.

I hope this helps,

Heat?


Generally speaking, an amp protects itself from heat, shorts and overloads by refusing to turn on or stay on.


Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.


You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.


If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.


If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.


Check for loose speaker connections as a root cause for intermittent shutdown.

If the receiver works at low volume, but goes into OVERLOAD and shuts down at higher volume, it means you are player the unit too long and too loud. Try yo keep the volume down to a reasonable volume.

My Technics sa GX350 tuner keeps going into overload. It's the only thing plugged in.


Hi mate, had the same problem with my amp.. Take the top off and there is a fan at the back, there are 2 piece's of copper flat wire that touch together and these do not touch anymore so when its turned up or the bass gets stronger it cuts off as the fan should kick in at this point. If you can get these to touch again (bend them) then the problem will be gone!! I have had to do this a few times now though so this is not a long term fix.. I may try soldering!

I have a Technics stereo integrated amplifier SU G75. The cooling fan began making chirping noises then stopped. Now every time I turn the stereo on I get a overload message. Could it be the cooling fan...


It chirped because the bearings were worn out, then it froze up and isn't moving any air. Get it replaced. DO NOT run the unit if it keeps overloading or you will have a bigger problem.

My technics intergrated amplifier says over load


overload is protection from very big signal input-or high current output.
1-keep your input signal between -10db-----to 0db.
2-confirm that amplifier power is greater than total power of loudspeakers by 20%(if loudspeaker total power is 8 watt-amp watt must be 10 watt at least.

Tecnics SU-G95 stereo overloaded


Power down,disconnect the speakers and power back up. If it still say's overload, it needs to go to service. If not, check your wires, connections, and speakers one by one to hunt down the problem and correct. Hope this helps

Technics SU-G91 OVERLOAD PROBLEM


I had the same problem. As soon as the volume reached about 24db it would go into overload. I was able to fix it by soldering all the connections on the larger power module. The one connected the the heat sink. When I took it apart there where several solder points that had come loose.

Check all your speaker connections firstly as you may have a short on speakers.try disconnecting speakers at amp side one at a time to see if overload dissappears.If this doesnt help you have an output problem internally and will need to see the doctor
