I’m so ticked off. Our home theater system still doesn’t work. Every time we try to turn it on it says “overload” yet we’ve tried unplugging just about everything that the Home Theater system is connected to (excluding the TV) and it still says overload.
At first we thought there might be a fuse inside that had blown, but now I think it’s just the machine that’s not working right and this is it’s way of telling us.
So the other day Chris and I were in Costco (that’s like Sam’s Club) to do a little shopping and I suggested that we look at new home theater systems. They only had three to choose from and we didn’t really like any of the choices so I guess we’ll keep looking.
I really miss using the home theater system. Chris loved to use it when watching sports – particularly hockey. I could do without that, but it was nice when we’d watch a movie, dvd or when I wanted to listen to music. We had it hooked up to or 200 CD disk player so with the surround sound it was perfect if you were having a party or wanted to listen to music for hours without changing CDs.
I guess we’ll eventually get a new Home Theater system or figure out what really is wrong with our current one. Sometime in the future, when we renovate the basement, the wide screen TV, home theater system, PVR, DVD player, DVD recorder, Disk player and even the home theater seating will all move to the basement. I want that to be our rec room area and as long as our basement stays dry (crossing fingers as it really is a dry basement) it would be a great area for settling in and watching a great movie.
Has your home theater system ever given you and overload message? Ours is a Panasonic. If so, what did you do about it?
