KAC-X520 kenwood 1000w amp

My amp has a blinking red light on the top with input, but no output. I looked at the board and there was nothing obviously burnt so I just cleaned it real good and was crossing my fingers, but still no luck. Any ideas?Much appreciated!

    It's not the ground, cause I measured the voltage across and the ground is fine. Plus I have a two amp fuse box which of course both amps are run through the incoming ps. The other amp works just fine. The remote wire is good cause I jumpered that, same problem. I think I'm just screwed unless anybody knows something I don't! Don't buy kenwood, they really have gone down hill.

A red light indicates you got no power check your wiring you may not have a good ground, you need the green light to come on

The resistor may appear burnt due to over heating but that does not necessarily mean that the board is unservicable. The inputs and outputs need to be check first to dissern if the right information is comming back to the board and the appropriate signal is being outputed.
Forinstance the freezer defrost heater may be fused

When i play a bit loud (not too much though just when the light blinks red on the hard play) the sirquit closes the amp for two seconds.can you healp me on this ?thank you very much


does your bass have active pick ups?
do the ratings on your amp match the ratings on your speaker?
are you using a pedal?
does your pedal have an output adjustment?
have the ground on your bass checked.
make sure you're using the right kind of cable.
and be sure that the outlet you're using is grounded.

Replaced xl-2200 bulb still red light indicator blinking could it be the ballast?


Look at the output transformers in the high voltagesection of your TV very closely. These transformers have been known to fail sometimes if you look closely you can see the burnt places on the circuit board under the bad transformer. These transformers cost about $30.00. This will fix your TV.

Powa Force drill charger is dead


Powaforce battery charger.

  1. Measure the dc output (with multimeter) on female plug. Should read ±16 – 20V DC. If no voltage here open charger and measure 220v AC on input wire before transformer. No voltage faulty input cable or 3pin plug. If ok check for dc voltage after transformer. If transformer faulty (not worth repairing) replace with same dc volts and amp (important)output. Check now output cable.
  2. If voltage is on cable but base does not light up, probable faulty capacitor. If light is on but does not charge, probable rectifier that gives too little amps.
  3. Any good tv repair technician can help you. My tv tech already fix about 9 of my torch and drill chargers. Parts usually about R5 – R10.
ps. email me the specs of your charger the input, output, the current (MA) and the voltage 14.v or 21v to globalsat1@gmail.com

My 605 turns off and red light blinks when volume goes past 58


Shorted speakers can cause the unit going on protection mode (the red light blinking) when a certain volume is reached.

Test with a set of replacement speakers.

If it is not the speakers, it is probably transistors in the amp final or something nearby. Test also input output board.
