Sorry to waste your time. You need to mention on your home page that you charge for your help instead of waiting until the last page to let everyone know about it.

As it is with the world wide web and the search tools available to most people, a person can find 'free' fix it information from 'experts' most of the time now days. It makes them feel good about helping someone...I think?

Any way, thanks for your time.

How can i repair amp


Looks like the amplifier output transistors have blown (hence the pop). Quite expensive too repair - I would have a look on eBay for a cheap used but working Kenwood receiver, it would probably work out cheaper.

My kenwood vr-606 when i turn it on after 5 seconds the system shutdown


The most common problem found on FixYa for Audio Video Receiver's is:

My receiver say's "Protect" or turns on then off. What's wrong? Seven times out of ten it is a shorted speaker or speaker wire. To determine your exact problem, the first step is to disconnect all speaker wires "at your receiver" Next: Turn the receiver back on. If your receiver still says "protect" or turns off, it needs to be serviced. If your receiver stays on; reconnect your speakers one at a time and power back up after each speaker. You may find that after reconnecting all speaker wires it works! Most commonly the small braids of wire from the + to the - have touched and have caused the problem. In some instances, you noticed the problem only when turning the volume up. either way, make sure the exposed wires to your receiver are no longer than 1/2" long and are completely under the screw down terminal or slide in. When you've found the wire or speaker with the problem, your receiver will go back into "protect" At this point, disconnect the wire from the speaker at the speaker that may be causing the problem then test again.* Note* Make sure speaker wires do Not touch each other as this Will cause a short! If you turn the receiver back on and it stays on, you now know the problem is in your speaker itself. To test your speaker, you will need a multimeter. Set it to ohms resistance and touch the speaker terminals, if there is a short internally the meter will read "1......" If it's an analog meter, it will peg to the right. There's your problem. Now, within any speaker there are quite a few possibilities as to what could be causing the problem. Most common is a blown coil and the speaker needs to be replaced. Some speakers have internal crossovers (usually floor standing speakers) and may have a shorted or burnt board (usually very visible brown burn marks on the board) and can possibly be repaired if your handy with a soldering iron. Now, if you disconnect the speaker wire at the speaker and it still says "protect" Check your wire for the obvious cut or nail thru the wire if possible. If your system has wiring that runs behind walls, you may need to use your meter again. Disconnect the wire at both ends, keep the ends separated, put your meter on ohms resistance and touch probes to the + and - wires at one side. If the meter pegs to the right or reads "1...." the wire is shorted and needs to be replaced or repaired at the short. Hope this helps.

I have a kenwood vr 406 and a kenwood rcr0609 remote. After some time, the remote stopped working , so we got a new remote. This worked about a day. The remote itself seems to be working, because I can...


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.

The marine cb radio turns on but you can't here noboby talking nor can u talk out from the cb


Sound like either an antenna problem, or a mic problem.

The mic on most cb's also serve as transmit/receive switching. A broken wire or bad switch in the mic or cord can cause either or both to fail.

If you have a bad antenna (or cable), you should still hear squelch noise on receive (maybe lower in volume) and be able key the mic and get a transmit light on the unit. Visually inspect the connector, cable and antenna. If need be use an swr meter to prove the antenna system is bad.

Hope that helped...

Receiver does not sense the remote even after buying a new remote.


I have had this problem, and found this on FixYa during a google query. The only other solution caused me to stop and check it out, but there is not enough information to really repair the receiver.

I found another page through another forum that showed me how to fix my receiver, and I now have a functioning remote control after many years without.

The original page with all the info is : http://mysite.verizon.net/amp68/ . I reproduce it here as we all know web pages can easily disappear. I make no claim other than the fix worked for me, too.

I quote his page below:

How to fix the remote control problem with the Kenwood VR-507 Receiver The Kenwood VR-507 receiver has a very high remote control failure rate. The issue is not with the remote control itself, but with the IR receiver on circuit board inside the receiver.
Well, my friends, there is HOPE! A simple resolder of the three pins for the IR receiver will quite happily fix the problem quite premanently.
All you need to do, is remove all the screws that holds the cover on, and remove it.
The you can remove the front of the receiver from the frame and lay it down somewhere to work on. There are some wires you will need to disconnect. Make sure you mark them, so that you reconnect the to proper spot later.
Then, looking at the handy picture below, you should see exactly which pins need to be resoldered! I have sent this picture to 4 different people and resoldering has fixed the problem for ALL of them.
Here is the picture of part of the circuit board:
resolder.jpg Once you're done resoldering, put it together, hook it up, grab a beer and the remote and resume proper couch potato stance!

I'm not sure of the exact fix, but when these components were assembled a few of the connections involving the remote sensor were not saudered. An easy fix if you know where to look.
