Kenwood Receiver KR-a5020 receiver won't come out of standby

When you push the power button, you here a click and the unit/display lights up like normal but the second power on click does not occur. Before it was broken the following would occur:

1. A click is heard and the unit lights up
2. After a one or two second delay the unit would click again and the unit would play the input.

Step number two doesn't happen now.

I check all the speaker wires and speaker on/off button and even tried using headphones and still no sound. Is there any fuses that could be blown or a bad relay of some sort that is preventing a full power on?

    Thanks for the tip. I did notice some capacitor leakage on the circuit board that corroded some resistors.

    Thanks again!

The unit is in what is commonly known as "protect" mode. This means that a problem has been detected in the final output stage of the amp and the outputs are shutdown to prevent further damage to either the receiver or speakers. This should not be a difficult repair for a service shop. Expect a parts cost in the $25-$40 range. Add in the local labor rate for the total repair cost.

Kenwood Receiver (KR-A46) Loses Station Presets on Power-Off


it sounds like the button cell battery inside the receiver has gone bad if you take the cover off you will see it its about the size of a quarter. You can purchase a new one for around $4. Let me know if this works or if you need assistance in taking the cover off the receiver

I have an old Kenwood receiver that does not power up anymore. Not even the red standby light glows. I have power to the unit but that is it. I have checked the fuses on the inside but after that I am no...


If the voltage was 110, the polarity should not have made a difference. In all probability, the input power transformer has an open primary. This can happen with a power surge or just because of age. If you have an Ohmmeter, with the unit unplugged, measure across the 2 input pins for the main transformer. It should read about 3 ohms or less. If it reads infinity, it is open and must be replaced.

Keep us posted,

My Kenwood KR-V5570 receiver powers off when I try to run a medium to high volume and the standby light blinks


i had exact problem.
the bare wire speaker cables that connect via a clip connecor in back of the receiver are pushed too far in. something inside is shorting out with the speaker cables. solve this issue by either tightly twistng or soldering the wire ends ( then clip the ends about 1/4 inch long). watch out for the same issue of electrical shorts at the speaker end of the cables.

Receiver standby light,no power


WOOHOO!! I fixed this issue... same problem as everyone else has mentioned... to reset the Kenwood VR-606 receiver, unplug the unit. Hold the power button down and while holding the power button plug the unit in.
Say a prayer...
Then press the power button.
My display isn't working, but my speakers are working, and that's really all I care about right now... good luck to others!

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
