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.

My kenwood 107VR keeps turning off on its own, after about 3 secs it shuts off and the light blinks.


If you are sure your speakers are good. This unit has a protect circuit keeping the unit from turning on. This recevier uses an ic instead of output transistors. A ic incorperates transistors,resistors,capactors in one assembly for size and costs. There is a number right on the front of the ic ,you can go on-line to buy the ic is is fairly easy to put in as long as you can desolder and solder in.

Hooking up Kenwood AR-304 to LG TV


You need to connect the TV "Monitor Output" which will be standard audio (RCA) red and white. Then you need to make sure you go into the TV's main menu and go thru "Audio". You may need to turn off the TV's internal speakers to get output via the RCA monitor out. If by chance it has a setting for "Fixed or Variable" for the output, select "Fixed" and control the volume thru the receivers volume control. If you still need further help, don't hesistate to ask! I can walk you thru it. Hope this helps

Hook up for an AR 404 receiver


Copper is positive, aluminum is negative. OR One of the wires should have a white (or black) stripe on the insulation...this is negative wire. OR If using 18 gauge extention cord wire, the positive wire will have small grooves running the entire lenght (very difficult to identify, unless you have good eyesight) Hope this helps.

Turns on then shuts off like it has a bad fuse


HI...

Check to see that all the speakers are firmly connected at BOTH ends.
Also,if the receiver has speaker select switches, see if turning off the speakers allows it to stay on.

Let me know , Thanks

Do I need a new equalizer?


Karla, Equipment and water especially SALT water (AND SALT AIR) don't mix very well. The constant high moisture environment affects all the connections (the wires) the rca connectors (where one thing plugs into another, AND the switches. The wires may LOOK good but the connections may not be. When you say "all seems to be in good condition" tell me specifically how you checked them. Sometimes they LOOK good, but ar not making connection. While your stereo is ON, get in there and wiggle everything and see it the speakers come back on.

My first guess is your amplifier/reciever. Does it have speaker switches? If it does, move them up and down or click them many times to see if you can work the corrosion a little. This may help.

I'll try and help, let me know some of the stuff I've asked fo above.

Standby mode, shuts off


After 10 years of use probably best to replace with a new unit. Most will be hard to find exactly wich little bit is broke.
