Question about Audio & Video Receivers

2 Answers

I have a Kenwood Hi- fi UD70 (seperates) which I've had for while, working fine without a problem, but recently I think the amplifier section of the hifi seems to have developed a problem, at first intermittently but now more or less all the time.When you turn the hifi on you hear a loud bang/click through the speakers and the "protect" lights come on and the hifi fails to work. Before it broke completely there seem to be a hiss through the speakers even when no tape/cd/radio was playing

There's a grounded or shorted wire on the speaker that's why it produces a hiss. Please check the wiring and connectors.

I have a Kenwood KR V6090 tuner amp. Can anyone please tell me if I need a record deck with or without a pre amp fitted.


Hi. Some amplifiers provide power for a record deck (or you mean a vinyl record player). Some vinyl record player have their one amplification system, some don't. Those with the amplification system work fine on older amplifiers but others require a back-up power, like a transformer to provide power for the record player. You need to enquire with the store person on the type of record deck or record player you can use directly with the V6090. I had an early Pioneer Amplifier and a matching record player so that I could play the vinyl disc and LP's on full volume. Later I switched to digital Pioneer 7 channel. This couldn't accept the record player because it did not have a power substitute like the older Pioneer. So, when the record player plays, no signal is being sent to the amplifier and therefore, no music is heard, except from the needle.

I've just been given a Wharfedale S-990 Amplifier, Tuner CD etc tower - but without any speakers. Output is 2x50W - but the impedence isn't specified. I'm just looking for advice on what...


Anything in the neighborhood of 8-ohms will usually fly safely with standard audio amplifiers. At only 50w x 2 you want efficient speakers. Watch the volume as this amp may clip if driven too hard. THAT will kill any speaker.

This owner had Valdus 200's and was happy. But just about any quality speaker in the 100w range should work out.

I have a vintage Kenwood amplifier (two channel rear speakers, 4 channel front / satellite) with Dolby Surround. It is circa '98 or so. I just moved it and now the right channel of the rear speakers seems...


I can't provide specifics without the model number, but ingeneral, the amp section for the rear speaker could be defective or the output relay could be the problem. Without knowing the deisng, I can not say for sure. Typically, the units of that vintage, use ICs for the surround amps. Some use a single IC for both channels, some uise 1 per channel. If you can update this with the model number, I can get you more specifics and perhaps a repair cost estimate.

Thanks,
Dan

Kenwood stereo synthesizer tuner t-85l


T-85L is a component of a hifi system not suposed to work alone. You have to connect it to another Kenwood component (an amplifier like the A85 ) through a special cable to power it on/off. The special cable can be used point to point or as daisy-chained.

My kenwood a97 hi fi amp has gone into protect mode a resistor is broken how do i get a diagram to identify the type i need


in my a-97 amplifier was the chip stk350-030 broken. I replaced it and it works again. The stk350-030 you'll find in the middle. Open the hood and cut the bottom (sound weird but its true)

Item does not work


This unit is most likely in protect mode. This occurs when the receiveer detects a problem with the output amplifier section and that section is disabled. The most common failure parts are the output transistors. Expect a parts cost between $15-$40, Add in the local labor rate for the total repair cost.

On and off switch


This is the thermal overload for the amplifier section. unplug unit and check all speaker connections for a crossed wire. After all connections are checked and are in good condition, plug the amp back in and power up. Note: the polarity of the speakers when the wires are plugged in. Use the painted line on the speaker wire as a guide for which one is positive(+) and negative (-). If an amplifier is operated out of phase for too long ( positive and negative reversed), you can damage the amp. A bad speaker coil can cause the overload as well. If it still does it, disconnect all speakers and power it up. If these remedies do not solve it, you amplifier IC is shorted and needs replaced.
