Wiring diagram/schematic for kenwood (KR-11000G)

Hi, I am replacing the 4 amp transistors in this kenwood and I think that when I re-soldered the connection terminals , I may have gotten the color codes messed up. Is there any way you can find a schematic for this receiver??? The three colors of the wires are all the same, black, blue ,yellow. Any help would be most appreciated. Also, should I bypass the relay and wire direct to solve any more problems with these transistors?

Sorry, no freebies from what I see online. But, when you power up, does it play before it shuts down? This will help me formulate a better answer for you...accordianman

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.

Only a service person can help now. Likely you have a connection loose, a buldged cap or maybe just a transistor with a cold solder joint. Not being able to see it makes it hard to tell.

Your unit is going into protect mode. Check your speaker wires and speakers to make sure you don't have a short. If they check good you more than likely have a channel that went out and needs rebuilt. If you have a DVM you can test your output transistors to find which chanel has the short.

Don't bypass the relay contacts. They serve to disconnect the amp stages from the speaker if a DC condition is present, and in doing that, save your speakers form damage. Check for a DC offset condition on the junction of the emmitter stabilizer resistors to the STK0040 on each channel. They will be 0.47 ohm power resistors(2 per STK) connected to pins 3 and 8 of the STK. Anything substantially greater that 100mv here generally indicates a blown STK. Don't bother to change both, but just the one that is faulty. Another common problem for this age of amp. The high silver content in the legs of the transistors allows for "growth" between legs and internal connections of the transistor. Check for "black death" on the legs of transistors driving the STK. . . I tend to replace them if in doubt. If you need expert advice, comment me back. I am an audio specialist.

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
