Yes, it could be caused by shorted speaker wires, or even a shorted speaker. But the wires being reversed (+/-) would NOT cause it.

The overload is caused by the speaker wires touching, crossed or incorrectly hooked up to speakers - positive and negative.

Pioneer amplifier vsx-d512 overload message

This indicates the audio output stage in the receiver is loading down and triggering the overload protection circuit to kick in. Check the speaker wires for shorts, if okay! you will need a professional to assess the cost for repair.

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.

Have recently had an "overload" displayed. Have

HI:
Usually receivers go into overload due to a bad speaker make sure you disconnect the speakers also to make sure its overloading from a bad speaker. If the unit still shows overload even with all speakers disconnected, then your main amplifier output has a short usually a shorted output transistor is the cause. Unplug the speakers one at a time to and turn the unit on after disconnecting one of the speakers , to determine which speaker is at fault.

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.

My samsung washing machine model WA13513 13.5kg load had 8E error message popping out from the screen. Is the computer board damaged?

OVER CURRENT ERROR – Display shows 8E. IPM fault signal (this is caused by the overload of the MICOM INTO during motor action).
IPM: Integrated power module. The IPM controls the motor.
If the fault (low signal) happens to be sensed even once during the washing/rinsing stage, the motor stops immediately. However, during the dehydrating stage the signal is to be sensed, when the number of signals reads more than 6 per 500ms during the Washing or Rinsing cycle action.
If the motor stops working, in one direction ten times, “8E” Error is displayed.
During dehydrating, when the overload is sensed, the motor stops working at once and then feeds back to the initial stage of the dehydration unbalance sensing. When the feed back has occcurred twice, Error “8E” is displayed during the dehydrating unbalance sensing, No error happens by overload sensing. When it happens at more than 800rpm, the process is stopped compulsorily. Power SIW OFF can clear the overload error.

would advise calling a tech... hope this helps.

Message on screen 8E, Motor won't start on spin cycle. Model no Q1435(C/S/V)

This is what I found:
11. OVER CURRENT ERROR - Display shows 8E .
- IPM fault signal (that is caused by the overload of MICOM INT0 during motor action) is sensed.
IPM : Integrated power module. , IPM controls motor.
- If the fault signal (low signal) happens to be sensed even one time during cleansing/rinsing stage,
the motor stops immediately. However, during dehydrating stage the signal is to be sensed
when the number of signal is more than 6 for 500ms.
- During Cleansing or Rinsing
When the overload is sensed, the motor stops immediately and then proceeds to the next water-flow action.
If the stopping of the motor working is happens in one direction ten times,
"8E" Error is displayed.
- During dehydrating
When the overload is sensed, the motor stops to work at once and then feeds back to the initial
stage of the dehydration unbalance sensing.
When the feed back is continuously happened 2 times, "8E" Error is displayed
During the dehydrating unbalance sensing, No error happens by overload sensing.
When it happens at more than 800rpm, the process is stopped compulsorily.
-Power S/W Off can clear the overload error.
in short: imbalance problem
In a german forum one guy solved the problem by replacing the motor electronics. I am currently experiencing the same problem. I keep you posted.
