Rockola 481 max 2, mechanical overload light comes on, reset button resores play for a short time, what causes it?


Sometimes a motor is too slow because it's dirty and more current is needed to turn it, so everything ramps up and overloads.

Speaker humms only. what causes that?


Incorrect connections or volume settings.

• In powering up, mixer first then amp

• In turning off , amp first then mixer


If hum still persist, without the mixer connected

then speaker amp may need servicing.

Hooked the damn thing up power my subs wonderfully for that evening, and all day today, got in this evening and nothing, checked the amp and red light, ok, fine, checked the manual, says the light protects...


probably something corssed in your speaker wiring. be sure that you did not exceed the ohmage capabilities of the amp, and that no speaker wires are crossed, or shorting out on the frame. if you have too many speakers hooked up, that can reduce the ohmage, and your not supposed to go below 2 ohms -per channel, or 4 ohms bridged mono.

My Technics AV Control Receiver SA AX530 is in overload


An amplifier should never be turn on without speakers, it will overload internally.
make sure speakers work and try again.

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.
