Question about Kenwood VR-5090 5.1 Channels Receiver

1 Answer

When switching devices I loose audio after a few minutes after power on.

I have had this unit for at least 4 years now, with no problem. Now when I turn it on, after not being used for a while everything is OK, then after a few minutes I loose the audio when I switch between devices. I have stripped all inputs & outputs down to a minimum (center speaker & TV video out only, cable & DVD in only), and the problem persists. Powering on and of does not help once the problem occurs, but time helps. Is this some kind of overheating problem?

I have a Sony STR-DE 597 reciever. I have been using it fine for a few years with no problems and it sounded great. I turn the unit on recently and a message was displayed on the unit that said PROTECT....

Protect will usually show up if the receiver was turned up too loud to the point where the speakers will crackle, the receiver will switch to protect to not damage anything. Unplug it for about 30 seconds and check all the audio wiring in the back to make sure everything is plugged in good and tight and no loose cables or stray pieces of copper audio wire and plug it back in.

My Sony STR-DG920 shuts off then comes back on by itself every 4-5 minutes. It very quickly loses power then comes back online. Any ideas what might be the problem?

The problem is the Power Switch. The switch on the STRDGF920 is very problematic. When the receiver is on very lightly move around the power switch with your finger. do not use enough pressure to turn the unit off. Just very lightly slide your finger over the switch and you will see your problem happen. I have two STRDG920 units with the same problem. One is so sensitive I can blow on the switch and it will power cycle off and on. I have called Sony and they said they do not offer a replacement part power switch. I will have to figure something out.

Need to give a FULL RESET in a MARANTZ SR5004 RECEIVER

Switch off the unit. Then hold down Sorround, Exit, Memory & Clear buttons all together and then switch on the power. This should work.

Sound from digital input(s cut out

You are probably correct. The input switcher IC or the power supply feeding the Optical switcher is most likly got a problem. The cost to diagnoise a problem like this could cost you with a repair, more then you could most likly get a new reciver for. Its a shame of all the great technology that gets thrown aweay in the dumps every day. Good Luck PS please do not forget to rate this thread.

Receiver shuts down and will not turn back on untill you unplug and plug back in

Nope. sorry to burst your bubble but your problem is pretty common on this unit. Its bad capacitors in the power supply and probably not worth repairing in a repair shop. since this is a solid state reciver, there are no user replaceable parts inside.

Sudden failure to power up

I've had this happen a number of times with my receiver. This trick from the Troubleshooting guide in the owner's manual usually does the trick: To reset If an unusual condition in the display window or malfunction occurs, reset the unit as follows. 1 Press the POWER button to turn off the power. 2 Press the POWER button while pressing the ENTER button. Everything stored in memory after purchase is canceled. If the power cannot be turned off in step 1 because of a malfunction, reset by disconnecting the AC cord and carry out step 2.

Not powering on

1. The power cord is not completely insered. 2. the impedance selector switch on the rear panel is not fully set to the upper or lower end - (set it when the unit is in the standby mode) other then that, you will have to call for a service.
