Once you correct the wiring issue ensuring you match the positive side of a speaker with the corresponding Left or Right output on the back of the stereo. Once you power the unit on, it shouldn't say overload. If it does, try looking in the manual for a reset button (I assume you have unplugged and plugged in the unit) to reset the amplifier circuitry.
If the unit still reads overload then that would suggest damage was done to the amp when you shorted the output (high volume, power on while changing the wiring, etc.)
Good Luck

What are the speakers that are connected to it? When it says protect, the amp is sensing an overload and it could be because the speakers can not handle the amp.

Amp displays overload

your voice coils in the speakers could be damaged (i have had this happen on my stereo just from age), but it is more likely that the amp itself has been blown and needs to be replaced. if you are good with electronics you could open it up and see if there are any charred parts or burst capacitors.

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 SA-G9057 overload

Check the fan connections at the back. The connections (just two flimsy metal prongs) came apart (I believe), so I have had to re-enforce them with electrical tape so the connections stay together until I investigate a further replacement fan. For now the connections are extremely sensitive to motion/viberation/impact/etc... but it does work now.

Any hdmi channels i turn on cause an overload message on the receiver and it shuts down. How do i fix this

Check the surround setting you may have these HDMI channels set on. Try changing the audio setting to STEREO to see if you still get the OVERLOAD message. If it helps you may have faulty wiring on your surround speakers. This would explain why it was only happening on your HDMI settings.

After checking your wiring and not finding any problems you will have to narrow it down to the source of the problem. Disconnect your center channel and retry the surround mode and see if you get the OVERLOAD.

Once you find the problematic speaker you may need to replace it. Unfortunately it could be possible the speakers are unable to handle the power being provided by the receiver and may be sending feedback to the unit causing it to overload.
