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.

KR-V6050 I cannot get audio to work on radio, video or any other setting. Also the red standby light stays on all the time, even when the power switch is turned off. Alan


Check the input / output connections are in the correct places. The red standby will stay on when the unit is off showing that it is ready for use. To confirm, turn the power off at the wall. The red light should go out after a few seconds.

Kenwood KDC-138 Standby Question


Standby mode does not completely power down the unit it jsut does not draw as much power as when the unit is on. Also, depending on the unit, it might start back up faster in standby then from power off. You can select to have certain things displayed while in standby mode. Here is what can be selected for this unit:
Standby: displays CD loaded indicator, "STBY" indicator, and clock (when selected)
Hope this was helpful.

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
