Question about Kenwood KR-A5080 Receiver

1 Answer

Standby mode, shuts off

My receiver has worked well for years (i've owned it for 10 years). We were watching a movie and accidentally hit the "direct" button. All of a sudden the recevier's standby mode when on and the receiver started automatically shutting itself down; first after 5 minutes, and now autmatically right after it turns on. We tried unplugging the unit from all the components, then plugging it back in, but it did not solve the problem. Is my receiver dead or is it easy to fix? i can't find my manual anywhere.

After 10 years of use probably best to replace with a new unit. Most will be hard to find exactly wich little bit is broke.

You need to make sure you ohms are correct if there too low this will happen to protect the amp.

SOURCE: Kenwood VR-209 turns off after 20 minutes

Overheating is likely your root cause. Move the unit to make sure it is getting enough air around it and remove anything that you have sitting on top of it ESPECIALLY any device that produces heat of it's own such as your CD player. If that does not solve the problem, listen at a lower volume and/or defeat any equalization or bass enhancement circuitry.

NHT sa-2 amplifier won't go into standby mode after 10 Minutes of no signal


Does the NHT sa-2 have it's own pre-amp? Because I'm wondering if the power off only works when it's own pre-amp is used? So when your receiver is connected it's shut off.

You could try something connected to it's own pre-amp (if it has one) and see if it goes off when there's no signal from that.

When power is turned on, standby light comes on normally, but in any playing mode, the receiver switches off and the standby light flashes.


It looks like this is a common problem with a lot of the Sherwood Receivers. I've had the same problem with my R-125RDS for a while now. Finally hit on solution today by replacing a power transistor. The transistor in question is not on the power amp board but instead screwed to the chassis and wired to the mainboard. I believe it is part of the output short protection circuit. In my case the component was a 2SD2059 (silicon NPN 100V,5A) replaced by equivalent 2SD1407. The transistor seems to run pretty warm so I guess this is why they ultimately fail after a few years.

Hi bsschachtwhen ordering a Video On Demand movies are downloaded overnight via satellitewhen the receiver is in standby mode, so when renting movies are available fora 24 hour period and can be watched as many times as you like. In your case with themovie you ordered; if there were "parental controls" that are enabled it will not show themovie. MikeHouston of DISH Network

r this one: Switc off your receiver using the main power button on the front face. Hold the the Effect button and the Direct button, and turn the main power ON.f it ain't working, try this one: Turn your receiver ON and, while holding down the [VCR1] button, press the [STANDBY/ON] button.

RESET = To reset your receiver to its factory presets.
CANCEL = To cancel without making any changes Press STANDBY/ON to confirm your selection.
* If you selected "RESET", your receiver is reset to its factory presets and switches to Standby mode good luck

I have a Denon receiver, had it for a couple years now and has worked perfectly. Last week I was watching a movie and all of a sudden my receiver shut off and it blinked a red ring of death. I let it rest...


Did you recently move any speakers around or any items near the speaker wire connections?
It sounds like you may have a speaker wire shorting which is causing the receiver to go into "auto protect" mode. Check all of the speaker wire connections on the back of the receiver and at all of the speakers to make sure the wires are not touching or close enough to possibly touch.

Stuck on standby


Unit is in protect mode there are a few problems that can trigger protect mode the most common is blown channel (shorted outputs). Sometimes one of the 15v regulators may go bad causing imbalance of supplys triggering protect mode. Also sometimes a bad solder connection could cause unit to go into protect also.
