Question about Kenwood Audio Players & Recorders
I will assume no audio is coming out of your speakers.
When the reeciver starts up It looks at the load (resistance) of the speakers attached to see if it is reasonable. If It appears there are no shorts in the speakers then the speaker relay will close (second click) and send signal to your speakers. If there is no second click then either the the reciver is detecting a problem with speakers or cables or the detecting circuit has failed. I would start by disconecting all speakers then start the receiver up. If your not getting a second click after about 4 or 5 seconds then the receiver will need service. If it does click then shut receiver off, and hook up one speaker at a time, then re-start receiver. If one speaker suddenly makes the system fail then you have found your problem. If you have a Volt/Ohm meter, set it to resistance(Ohms) and measure each speaker. Anything Under 4 ohms will be a problem.

The clicking generally means that the relay is trying to close but for some reason cannot.Usually, (but not always) this indicates a problem in the power supply such as a blown voltage regulator or a zener diode. This is not an easy fix and not for the faint of heart. If you feel up to it, at least try to locate a circuit diagram or even better a repair manual. I like Onkyo receivers. They are generally quite reliable and fixable.
