Question about Kenwood VR615 Receiver

Kenwood Reciever VR-615 S/n: 20102759

My reciever is only 3 years old. My display lights are not coming on. Are there any recalls on this model or can you tell me what may be wrong? I saw other emails on the web where other customers with the same model are having the same problem.

    I have the same model with the exact same problem.... display stopped working a little more than a year after I bought the system. The same thing happened to the Kenwood car stereo in my wife's car... Although I like the Kenwood products I'd have to think twice before muying another one....

    I have the same model and the same problem.  On mine, if you push on or tap the front of the unit just below the display, it turns the display off, and if you give it a solid one-finger-tap on the top of the front panel, the display comes back on.  I'm about to open it up to look for any loose connections... not that I'd know one if I saw it.

    No display at all. DSP LED comes on when you keep hitting "Listening mode".

Mine is 5 years old. Mine started that after 3 years. I would have to push down on the top front and center of the unit for it to light up. When I released it it goes back out. Now I have another problem. Earlier this year the sound would cut in and out. Now as of this very second the only audio I get is the music and sound effects unless I put it on Stereo. Can you help me with that? Randy

    I have the same unit and tried for several years to find relevant information. I finally found service manual online and started searching by the display part ED801 and found the following post:

    I was able to use the excellent information in this post and re-solder the connections mentioned and now my display works just like it's brand spankin new.

    Good Luck!

Reciever wont stay powered on

I fear that there's no easy fix. Sounds like the power supply or the board which controls it is bad. If you're not an electronics repair person, it'll need to go to a repair shop.
