Question about Kenwood VR-405 Receiver

1 Answer

No Sound Unit Powers on but no sound. It usually clicks once when it powers on (which is still does) and then right before the sound comes on it will click again but now it doesn't make that second click henceforth no sounds. Sounds like something must have blown. Can anybody help me out w/ this? Thanks in advance. J

Well, if it powers up, youve still have hope// check and see if you can see a fuse holder at back of stereo... or go to a radio shack or electronis place and get whats called 'contact cleaner' ( may go by a different name, make SURE you know that the salesperson knows what your talking dont have to buy the pricey stuff, but dont get the cheapest either.) then UNPLUG stereo, make sure its not hot ( dont have it on for a long time before working on it) then pull out the knobs on the front ( the volume,left/right,etc) spray a LITTLE bit into the stereo where the plugs go.dont drench it, a little goes a long way) after spreying it in, turn the knob back and forth so it gets to all the points.... make SURE its dry before plugging it back in, you can tell if you see any moisture where you sprayed.( another reason, not to spray much) i usually let my stereo and tvs dry over night before trying them.while your waiting, may as well take a cloth and clean the face, get any cruddies off... good luck

I have a crown power amp XTi 2000 that will power up and then i hear a clicking sound and it powers down. could it be the switch. it sounds like the sound is coming from that direction

Look on the heat sink for a temperature sensor that operates the overload relay. . Make sure the heat sink isn't overheating. If it is then the output transistors are shorted.

Unit powers up, cd and radio seem to be operating properly, but no sound is heard, unit worked fine a few days before, all wires are conected, everything seems unchanged you said...the unit powers you don't have a "dead set".I don't know if the speaker can be disconnected from the unit.As a rule of is very rare that both channels (left and right )fail at the same is usually one channel while the other speaker still operates.This is what I want you to do...In a quiet room..get really close to the unit...Switch it on and listen for any sound from the speakers...get really should hear a slight hum from the woofers and a high frequency "hiss" from the tweeters....If no sound is heard..switch the unit off..You should hear a "plip" sound...If not...switch it on should hear a slight "bump" sound from the woofers...If you hear no sound from the speakers at all..there is a problem with the output stages of the amplifier section.If you do hear sounds fron the speakers,,Turn up the volume and watch for an increase visually on the display (such as ascending numbers).If there is no indication of a volume increase...The "mute" may be stuck on..Try switching it off and on...please let me know what happens after you do all the tests....Looking to hear from you......PEACE!!!

JVC Model #: AV-56p575--------problem with power

If this clicking is a continuous clicking sound its likely that its coming from the ballast.The ballast is the component that powers the lamp.If this component fails your lamp wont ignite and wont allow the start up to continue.

Sony STR DE-445 unit powers up but no sound

Check the fuse, Sony is known for its random problems with sound. The one I have you must tap it on the side. Its a flicker switch inside.

Hard drive powers up, light comes on makes a crackling sound then goes off.

Crackling sounds are usually electrical. Does the unit smell burnt?
If the sound is actually a ticking sound, then the heads inside the hard drive are banging and the drive needs to be replaced.
Data retrieval for drives making clicking sounds are very costly and require a data retrieval company.

MY ROCKFORD T15004. It worked fine until last year, I had the unit intstalled in the cabin of my boat and while the unit was playing the sound cut out. The Amp still powers up with the power light coming...

dampness probably is the issue , those components on the board are delicate to moisture . open cover and look in side on the amps board for any greenish white build up of corrosion on outputs , resistors ect .

Front power light comes on then you hear a noise for about two min. then unit powers down

Have you replaced the lamp before? Is it a clicking sound? If you've replaced the lamp before and it is a clicking sound it's most probable to be your ballast, but if you haven't replace the lamp i recommend you change it first to see if it solves the issue, if not check teh ballast.. :)
