SOURCE: Kenwood Receiver KR-V127R - left channel not working

Select an input that is not connected, for example select CD with no cables going to the CD input on the backside. Will you then hear equal humming on both channels? If so, the amp stage is ok,
and the problem lies in the signal level circuitry.
Open the cover and use a plastic (insulated) stick to touch suspectible cables and components. When the sound returns, you've found the cause. Resolder or reseat the component/cable/card.
Use the insulated stick, NOT your fingers!

SOURCE: Speaker output

My unit does the same thing, I read online to install a RCA Patch cord from Main-In to Main Out and it worked.
I contacted Yamaha and they wanted to charge me to fix the issue and they will not fix it under warranty because I did not buy the unit from a authorized Yamaha dealer. Obviously a design flaw.

SOURCE: kenwood receiver, and the mic input problem

Does the gtr still work on the unit? The mic jack may be bad / dirty and not routing regular audio. Try plugging the gtr cord in and out a few times. Or inspect the jack itself for tarnish, bad solder joints. Fine sand paper can be used to clean the contacts on the jack, if it's not a sealed jack.

Hope that helps...

SOURCE: Kenwood VR6070 speaker/amp problems

unit needs repair. Look at the b speakers. Conect a speaker or two to the B position. If you have no sound than your surrond sound is ok and the unit is bad. Sound comes directly into the b speaker and not threw the surrond system. My 6070 has a cold start up problem. no sound. time to purchase a new one. to costly to repair.

SOURCE: No sound output from Center and Surround speakers

the only time the center and surround speakers put out sound is when it has a surround sound source such as a dvd etc. and only certain sounds come from them as well.

KENWOOD KR-V8030 SPECS


I have had this exact Receiver and this is taken right from the specs. in the manual, "120 watts per channel RMS" at 8 ohms - this is in Stereo mode (2 speakers) only". When surround sound is used, "75 watts RMS for Front and Center speakers and 15 watts RMS for rear (surround) speakers. From experience, the Stereo only mode is definitely stronger/louder than when switching to Surround. Most newer receivers are the same wattage regardless of mode.

When i turn on my kenwood kr-v990d it powers up for about 2min then shuts down


It is possible that the amplifier had encountered a fault with a higher current drain which had triggered it to a protection fault condition. The fault can be with your output drivers. Please check for short on the outputs fitted for both the channels. Use a meter after disconnecting to check for short in the drivers. Disconnect the positive and negative voltages to the output and see if the protect changes. Even a fault in the preamp stages that drives in high current into the output can shut the Amplifier. Sometimes this can be a noise which can be a HUM or HISS before the protect works. Faulty capacitors in these circuits also can cause similar issues and needs close observation.You need to confirm and replace the specific stages or outputs. If not there can be issues in the mother board. Maybe the protect circuit by itself is shutting off due to a faulty bias or there is a leak in any voltage/current sensing circuit. Also disconnect the speakers and test, if the amplifier comes out of the protect mode then check for short on the speakers.

Hi, My friend (who has a visual impairment) moved house recently, they own a Kenwood KR - V5570, I assisted with re setting up PC etc. I am now baffled with connecting her left and right speakers to this...


If you keep guessing you may succeed in blowing something up.

The cables have RCA connectors or bare wires for a reason.

Get the manual out and read it.

Don't pay too much attention to the actual colors of speaker wire. Use the colors as reference. Each speaker has a plus and a minus. Connect them to corresponding plus and minus for their respective amplifier outputs.

Where on the Kenwood KR-V5580 do I connect a sub woofer


Wherever the unidentified subwoofer's manual recommends. As there are no volume-controlled pre-amp outputs it would have to be a model that accepts full-range speaker level input if you want to control its volume locally.

Kenwood kr-v888d after "ON", through 3sec.


Generally speaking, an amp attempts to protect itself from heat, shorts, overloads and operator exuberance by refusing to turn on or stay on.

Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.

You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.

If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.

If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.

Check for loose speaker connections at the speaker as a root cause for intermittent shutdown.

How do I hook up my HD TV to the kenwood kr-v7080 so I can hear stereo TV ?


Maybe hook up the actual source of the TV audio (not necessarily the TV) directly to the Kenwood. Cable and SAT boxes have nice standard digital audio outputs. They're wasted on TV's which typically have sucko speakers. Lower-end analog audio is also available if you want to watch Cable/SAT throught the TV speakers.

Familiarize yourself with the controls. Understand every indicator on the front. There may be a clue there. Turn the volume to a medium or low level before changing any settings or you may be in for a BIG (and costly) surprise when you find the one that was in the wrong position.

Kenwood KR V8080 receiver


if you sent 110v down the speaker wires & into the amp you most likely have damaged the audio outputs or the output ic. Look for a big aluminum heatsing & on one side you may find 1 or 2 ic's or numerous transistors, the ic's are hard to check, the transistors are easier to check, if transistors replace in pairs. also check for burnt /open resistors near outputs
