Question about RCA RT2350 System

1 Answer

Overload Message Every time I turn on my system, it stays on for about 3 to 5 seconds, then with a click, I briefly see the message "OVERLOAD" before the unit turns itself off. I have opened up the unit, and I see no plown fuses, or anything looking burnt out. Do think this is a power supply issue?, and if so, I think I can repair it, I just need to know what part to get and where. Thanks for the time. Peace, MJ

The amp probably shorted out from bad cable or yop probabaly you drove the amp into clipping and it blew out

Overload message on my janome 8000

I know you said you have performed the reset sequence, but try these steps and see if the unit goes through the diagnostics correctly.

  • Turn off your Janome MC8000. Wait for a few seconds.

  • Press and hold the "Start," "Reverse" and "Auto lock" buttons at the same time.

  • Release the three buttons once your Janome MC8000 turns on.

  • Locate the plus (+) sign on the machine screen. Press the plus sign when prompted. Wait till you receive a message that says "Test Complete."

  • Turn off the Janome MC8000. Wait for a few seconds.

  • Turn on the Janome MC8000 once again. This will prompt the embroidery machine to conduct a diagnosis. Wait till it finishes the diagnosis and troubleshoots the errors you were encountering before.

Pioneer receiver overload

The "Overload" message usually involves the speakers or the speaker wires. Disconnect the speaker wires and make sure that they aren't frayed or damaged. (When you reconnect them, make sure that no loose wire touches the receiver case, speaker or another wire.) Replace any damaged wire. Make sure that none of your speakers have a lower impedance than the receiver can handle. (Most Pioneer systems have a 8 ohm limit.)

If the message persists, turn off the system. Disconnect one speaker at a time and try turning on the receiver and turning up the volume. If the error disappears when one speaker is removed, that speaker may be damaged and needs to be serviced. Do not reconnect the speaker to the receiver until it is fixed.

I hope this helps.

My technics receiver stop playing, and display an overload message. what do you believe the is the problem ?

If you are getting an overload problem, it indicates an output load issue. Turn receiver off! remove speaker wires from the back of the unit, this will reset the protection circuit. Now power up and turn your volume right down, If the word overload stays off it means there is a short in the wire or speaker. But! if the word overload comes on "even with the wires and speakers dis-connected" it indicates a short in one or more of the audio output ic's or transistors.

Got overload message; batteries were a year old so replaced them today. Just got overload message again after 20 minutes of use.

Overload has nothing to do with the batteries being old or has to do with with how much watts you are sending through the unit...if the overload protection fault is on, it is because it is sensing that if the power were to go out the UPS would not hold up the load at all. I do not recommend to load the ups more than half of the load. visit a batteriesplus store near you and they can help you with this in more detail.

One day i noticed a message on the lcd saying overload. It will not turn on now>?? How can i fix this

Overload = one of the speakers has a lower impedance than the amplifier can sustain, most likely it's shorted. Take them out one at a time till the message is gone and fix it if possible or replace it if not.

Turn on, in a few seconds Flashing "OVERLOAD"

Overload  usually only appears if you have been using higher volumes for a period of time and this trips to protect your speakers and amplifier. Turning off your amplifier and leaving for a while and it automatically resets. other wise a would check your speaker cabling to see if any wires are  touching shorting out the circuit. Try removing you cables from your amp then turn on. If it turns on without Overload appearing the problem is between amp and speakers. Check your cables at both ends and while at it give them a clean then hook up everything ( Amp should be off) then turn on the amp and see if you get message. If you still get this message you could have  dry/ broken soldering on the inside and the amp is detecting a dc short in the system. This seem to a common thing these days. In which it will be a repair job.  Low impedance speakers or speakers that have a wide impedance swing when they are running at high volume can cause a amp to trip if it hasn't got enough current to drive low impedance speakers. Hope this has been of help.

Receiver Overload error message

Disconnect all speaker wires at the receiver, then turn it on and up. If it stays on, check your speaker wires one by one, then check your speakers one by one. If it still cuts out with nothing attatched, it needs serviced or replaced.

Overload message in technics model SA- EX400P-K I have an older Technics system. It has worked great for years but now I get overload whenever I turn it on. Have changed speaker wires but no use. Any...

The overload message is the old version of "protect" mode. This means that a problem has been detected in the output amp section and that section is shutdown to prevent further damage. Your unit uses amp-pacs. One or more are bad. These are marked RSN3305P and cost about $66 each.
