If it's the older leaves turning brown, the plant may be purging its old leaves which is normal. If it's newer leaves turning brown, there is a problem. Sagos should be allowed to dry out between waterings. If you think you've overwatered, and the plant has root rot, it's important to repot right away in fresh soil and a clean container with drainage. It also could be a nutrient problem if you don't fertilize.
