SOURCE: Kenwood ka 996 integrated amp. The standby light will dont turn off. I also need to see if someone will tell how everything should be hooked up.

the standby light should be on if the unit is not 'ON' if you want the 894 to turn on when you power up the 996, then you will have to plug the ac for the 894 into the 'switched' ac outlet on the back of the 996
what specific problems do you have with this system

Some says it is only dead when it is buried.

Open it up and check, ( Be sure it is unplugged)

Only if you feel you can DIY or have a tech do it for you.

I have a KA-128 Integrated Amplifier Stereo system. Lately after it has been playing for a while the speaker seem to just turn off. The amplifier still works, is reading my media (Tuner or CD) but no...


The unnamed speaker turns off but you're SURE the amp still works? How so?

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 another possible root cause for intermittent shutdown.

I have a stereo Integrated Amplifier KA-7010, Multiple Compact Disc Player Dp-M4010. It was a gift from my brother and he cannot find the exact cables that came with the system, and I have a pair of...


More triage first.

Which unit cuts off? Signal Cables won't make either do that. Either will run just fine even without them.

CD players die.

Speaker issues or shorts will pose problems for the amp.

Do you have the manuals? If not, seek them.

Describe your kenwood manual "ka


Hi, Yes it is safe to leave this connection unhooked. The system control is what the stereo uses to remote control a cassette deck,cd,turntable etc... using the amplifier separately should be o.k. I hope this helps, good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa-Prodzilla

The model number is Kenwood KA-894 integrated Amplifier I'm trying to find out how many watts. Thanks


The manual with 'specs' is here. Take them with a grain of salt because it's impossible to produce more audio watts than are consumed electrically (250 total).

I have a kenwood stereo integrated amplifier KA 791 and the dual cassete KXw892, niether will come on. when plugged in the standby light only comes on. the reciever and cd player components come on fine?...


That system came with the kt591 tunner in a bundle which consisted of what you call the Kenwood Spectrum 700 rack system, you had to plug the tuner into the wall and then plug the amp into the tunner if you didnt , when you turn the amp on you just get a relay clicking noise and nothing turned on.

I have a kenwood KA 1060 amp, and recently changed the fuse on the first PCB board where the mains power lead connects to the unit as the fuse had blown. After doing so and testing it again the fuse has...


Most likely the output transistors are shorted. This causes the output stage to draw too much current and blows the fuses. Expect a parts cost around $20-$40. Add in the local labor rate for the total repair cost.
