Question about Kenwood HTB-406 System

1 Answer

Remote or Tuner Problem?

I've had my Kenwood HTB-406 system for several years. I recently encountered a problem with volumn control on my remote control. It functions when I first turn the system on but doesn't after awhile. I've replaced the batteries in the the remote several times but this does not remedy the problem. I've tried several different function buttons (Input Mode, Monitor) to see if its something I may have pushed accidently but nothing seems to work. I even reset (held the power button in while unplugging and plugging in the power cord)which I thought fixed it. I had remote volumn adjustment for a short time while playing a DVD but then it stopped responding. Any advice or help would be appreciated.

Here is a way to see if the remote works on not. get radio and switch it to am mode. then face the remote to the radio and press the buttons. if you hear noises, then the remote is working fine. if not, the you have to open it and clean it from the inside. use alcohol on the board but never put any alcohol on the rubber buttons. just use a q tips to clear the rubber buttons. good luck

Kenwood receivers recently have a commonly known problem with its receiving IR diode within the receiver, to fix this you will have to re-solder the connection on the receiver panel within the faceplate of your kenwood receiver.

Instructions to fix it are at the following link if you are willing to open up your receiver and repair it. lots of people have reported this fix as successful so it is widely believed to be a design flaw in the VR line-up of receivers as it has occured in all the VR families so far.

good luck.
