Question about Kenwood 104AR Receiver

Kenwood am/fm stereo receiver kr-596

I've had this item for about 10 years so i know its old but well taken care of, the first problem to occur was when i turned it on the on/off noise(click) would repeat over and over again for about 15 seconds and the blue light(everything that is normally visable) is not showing anything.Now the clicking has stopped other than when i turn it on or off but it still shows nothing and i cant control anything but i know its turning on and off + the standby light still works, im thinking maybe the board went bad, but not sure if its possible to replace or if its even sold seperatly i dont know, any suggestions.

Re: kenwood am/fm stereo receiver kr-596

This happened to my 104AR two years after I bought it. It started right after a static charge was transfered from my finger, through the faceplate in the area of the volume knob. This area is not grounded and the shock killed something, somewhere inside. There may be only one part that needs replacing but determining what that is, is beyond my expertise. If you do find a way to fix it, I recommend grounding the volume pot, so it doesn't happen again.

I have RCA cables , How do I use my computer music ? What connections and settings?

Are you trying to play music off your computer through a stereo or receiver??? If so you will need a cord with red & white (rcas's) on one end & an 1/8" jack on the other...Run it out your headphone jack of the pc (usually color coded light green) and turn input of stereo to corresponding input you plug into..

Where are the fuses located in a kenwood , kr5030 ?

If there are any fuses you will have to take off the cabinet to see them on the inside. If not the fuse then it is most likely the power supply inside.

Kenwood RV7030 audio-video stereo has static without antenna

OK I am going to suggest two aerials for you. I would also NOT use the old cable as it will cause a lot of problems. It is best to replace it with the stuff they use for satellite dishes (see image).
The FM aerial will pick up signals from all sides. The TV aerial should give high quality signals and output for at least 5 sets.

I have a Kenwood KR-A4010 Am/Fm Stereo Receiver. Every five seconds the sound fades in and out. Can anyone find a solution to this problem?

Something in the unit is smoked and potentially dangerous. Get that puppy down to a repair shop. Don't leave it unattended if you turn it on. Got a fire extinguisher handy?
