Question about Kenwood VR-405 Receiver
My remote suddenly stopped working...this happened a while back and I ordered a replacement. when I got the replacement, both of the remotes began working. now, neither one works again. any suggestions?
Hi there is a long thread in http://www.avsforum.com about other folks having problems with remote not working on all kinds of Kenwood VR receivers. go there and search on Kenwood receiver remote . I had the intermittent problem with my VR405 also, remote worked 1 day a week only sometimes after a smack to receiver sometimes not. Problem is the solder joints at the back of the infrared on the circuit board - they have a slight crack around them, as the unit heats up they occasionally start working. I resoldered them according to instructions in avsforum thread and it now works great

I'm not sure of the exact fix, but when these components were assembled a few of the connections involving the remote sensor were not saudered. An easy fix if you know where to look.
