Kenwood 1080VR - shuts down

As soon as I turn on the receiver it lights up, clicks, then shuts down. It does not stay on long enough to power any sounds thru the speakers. Any ideas?

    A friend of mine has the same problem and so do I. I have the 1080VR my friend has a slightly different model but close. It seems as if you can get it to warm up it will stay on but the sound will sometimes spike and muffle out. My friend tried changing an internal fuse but it didn't correct the problem. If had to guess , the Amp is burning out...

use a rca video cord one end to the video out from the kenwood other end to your tv. with your remote push setup and ajust the db levels. the higher the db levels the quicker protection will shut you down

Kenwood KDC-MP832U display not working

I had this problem! It was the Cars Battery. Kenwoods unit's fade or go completely blank when there is little power to power the stereo. Try charging your battery or grabing a new one from a scrappy! I was all over the net looking for help but finally sorted it!

P.S. My younger brother had to do the exact thing and it worked for him as well!!!

Kenwood VR-209 Still does not work after the speakers are unplugged.

I have a VR205 with the same problem. I can make it stay on by doing this: as soon as the display lights up turn off the power and then turn it back on quickly. Do this 3 or 4 times. Mine usually stays on after this....the relays latch and all is well I suspect one of the step-start relays as I have checked everything else out and all is in order and the receiver works fine. I would love to find a shop manual for this series of receivers. Anyone know where such an animal exists?

Kenwood KR V8080 receiver

if you sent 110v down the speaker wires & into the amp you most likely have damaged the audio outputs or the output ic. Look for a big aluminum heatsing & on one side you may find 1 or 2 ic's or numerous transistors, the ic's are hard to check, the transistors are easier to check, if transistors replace in pairs. also check for burnt /open resistors near outputs
