Question about Kenwood KRF-V5060D Receiver

1 Answer

Krf 5030 sound off and on

My receiver 5030 suddenly goes off, and it takes a few days off the power (to reset perhaps) to restore the sound. It’s very annoying not to know how long it will play. Please help me/

    Are you sure? Someone told me it may be a cpu problem, but if it's a power amp, can you tell me what the type is it (there are two)

  • djoleovojdjo Dec 09, 2008

    It doesn't heats up, sometimes it works for days, and sometimes the sound goes off when I turn the switch source wheel for another device

    It’s really confusing.

    p.s. I live in Macedonia, and fortunately there is no genuine service shop for Kenwood

It sounds like the power amp needs to be replaced , it will eventually quit

    if you turn it up or after it heats up, is when it quits , right?

    it shuts down after because of the thermal protect circuit so that the rest of the circuitry does not get dammaged from the fault

    cpu?(central processing unit ) I don't think so, because there is not one and if he means power section of the unit , then that would be a transformer and the unit(reciever) would not have power ,some of the power after the transformer goes into the amp for power amplification, and all these units have protection circuits to protect the unit

    then it would be in the audio selection IC , which controls the input devices audio to the power amp

Hi, my speakers are starting to sound a bit weird and i think its cause of pplaying around with the equalizers and settings on the Kenwood Amplifier, am just wondering if there is a reset button to restore...

Why guess? Get the manual out and actually look at the settings to see if they're out in space somewhere. If you don't try to understand what went wrong you will repeat it.

My surround sound system is making intermittent thumping noises. It used to only do it when we shut it off, a few minutes later it would thump a few times. Now, it is doing it when its on. Why is it doing...

I had the same problem with my Kenwood KRF 5060d
First just sometimes I used to hear this noise click clack from the device while the sound disappeared. Then the problem became more frequent and no mere bearable.

So I've tryed to restablish the weldings on the board in correspondence to the speakers connections and the relay connections. Nothing changed, so I've substituted the relay OMRON G5PA 28 NW 12VDC 2 contacts normally open (6 pins) with the new FINDER 40.52 (8 pins) letting free the 2 pins for the normally close contacts.

Now my KRF 5060d is working properly with the only problem that sometimes the dispaly disappear and I have to apply a little pression on it with my fingers in order switch it on. Maybe I've compromised some contacts in the frontal pannel while unmounting even if it wasn't necessary.

Kenwood VR-715 reset?

Hello llarosa,

Yes, there is. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet, then
plug it back in while holding down the POWER ON/STANDBY key.
That will clear the contents of the memory, reset the microcomputer and take the unit back to factory settings. Hope this helps. Let me know.
