SOURCE: Kenwood new sterio shuts off when turning up volume

You may have a short in a speaker. Check to see that the wire terminals on the speaker itself aren't touching any metal. Even 1 terminal touching metal will cause issues. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Volume turned up, kenwood shuts off briefly...

I had this same exact problem when my last older Kenwood Marine stereo cooked itself while I had it up loud for a few weekends on the lake. (smelled like it had burned inside). I went out and bought a new Kenwood KMR-550u stereo deck. (I do not have an additional amp). I hooked it up to the exact connections where my older Kenwood stereo unit had been hooked up, as I never had a problem with this for the past three years until it failed after smelling of burning elelectrical. I had chalked the problem up to heavy rain we had one day. Every time I turned up the volume, sometimes up to 27 out of 35 possible, or 29, or 32, the stereo would suddenly shut off as if I had turned it off. After a few seconds the stereo would come back on, but unless I was quick enough to turn down the volume it would do it again right away. Of course on a boat, we were beached in a cove and the engine was not running when I encountered this. I searched the internet finding hundreds of similar complaints and several dozen theories of all types, but only a couple that pointed me towards the power (voltage) idea as the problem. I put a volt meter on the positive & negative wires powering the stereo. I watched as I gradually turned up the volume, the voltage on the power wire gradually decreased from 12.5 volts, down into the 11 range, and as it hit 10.9 or 10.8 volts it shut off typically around a volume of 32. The red power wire in my boat that never seemed to have an issue with my old stereo until it fried was determined to actually be inadequate for the power flow for the new Kenwood, and probably was the culprit of my failed older unit. I offer this sound advice: Run a new pair of positive & negative wires directly from the battery (with an appropriate fuse of course (the deck has a 10 amp fuse in it's back so I would use that at the battery) to the stereo. Check the voltage as you turn the volume up into the high 20's and low 30's to ensure you are still getting voltage in the mid to high 11-12 volt range. The stereo is designed to require a minimum of 10.8 volts to operate, and when it drops below that it protects itself and shuts down.

Amp keep's sating overload


Have you tried disconnecting all the speakers and inputs and turn it on?
If it still shuts off you have an internal problem, if it stays on, connect one item at a time until it shuts off and that is the problem.

I got a kenwood stereo it is a vr-209 and evertime i turn it on it shuts back off so i need the code to reset it our get the protection mode code for it i called a stereo place that is wat they told me was...


Do you mean KENWOOD VR-209?


Register and download the manual for free at retrevo.com


http://www.retrevo.com/support/Kenwood-VR-209-Receivers-manual/id/480dj179/t/2/


Page 21 descriebs the microprocessor reset for USA & Canada; or other countries.



Generally speaking, an amp protects itself from heat, shorts, overloads and operator exuberance by refusing to turn on or stay on.


Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.


You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.


If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.


If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.

Amp and speakers do not work when stereo is in cd or mp3 mode but does when in stereo mode


you need to use the blue/white wire instead of the solid blue to turn the amp on. solid blue is antenna remote and shuts off when leaving tuner mode. blue/white is amp remote turn on.

My Kenwood car stereo keep falshing the word "Protect" how to fix


in front of your #1 preset button there is a reset button push it with a pin. if you made a pass # put it in if not page 12 show you how to make one if you want. reseting it should make it work if it dont you have a short somewhere start from scratch buy taking it out. I suggest you dont make a password till the short is gone. Mine did the same thing but because i was pulling to much power on starting my car with my amps.

How do i connect a kenwood amp to my 2003 bmw m3 with a stock hk system and head unit? i just need to kno where to connect the amp to the car radio


You will need to connect your speaker outputs from the head unit to the high power inputs on the amplifier. If the amp only has low power inputs(rca jacks) then you will need to get a device that lowers the output signal from the radio so the amp can be connected. The red wire will go to the switched power. The yellow will go to constant power. Black goes to ground. Now the blue wire is the signal the amp gets from the stereo to turn on. Your stock stereo will probably not have this ability so you will have to hook that wire to the switched power. Your amp will come on whenever the key is on...even if the stereo is off. If your stock stereo has a wire that sends out a power signal when it is turned on you could try that for the blue wire. Just make sure you have the negative battery cable on the car disconnected so you don't short out your vehicle's electrical system while installing the amp.

HAVE A KENWOOD AMP MODEL KAC-9102D . iT KEEPS SHUTTING OFF WHEN i TURN THE RADIO LOUD. ANY SUGGESTIONS


either bad ohm load or over heat if the ohs on the speaker wires to the amp are lower than specified use in the manual it will act funny cause it is pusing harder than its meant to and if it gets too hot either bad location or bad amp you can try turning the gain down a little until the amp stays on constantly at high volume

Put an aftermarket stereo in my 2006 nissan altima stereo turns on and works but it blows my 10 amp taillamp fuse. makes my ac knob lights turn off my gearshifter indicater turns off as well foglamps and...


The problem is bad wire connections, check the connections you made, if you don't understand the diagrams go to an expert.
You can cause major problems if you keep trying and doing it wrongly.
If you know what you're doing, if everything is ok and the problem persists try the same stereo in another car to check if the problem is that.

Kenwood 7202 Amp that is blowing fuses


If your speakers are wired for an impedance below 4 ohms mono or 2 ohms stereo, that would make it shut off. If you have a speaker wire shorted to ground, it would also cause the amp to go into protection.

 

If the speakers are not the problem, it may be shutting down because the voltage at the amp is dropping too low.
