SOURCE: I have a Kenwood KR-V7030

Hi,

Since it was just recently installed, would it be safe to assume that it is fairly new? If yes, perhaps your best bet would be to return to dealer/manufacturer for repairs/replacement. It is highly probable that the unit has sustained major hardware fault at least on the right channel. Even if it were just a fuse, it would still be to your advantage going that route.

Should for some reason you would venture a DIY, diagnosis and repairs of course would require fair familiarity with electronic components and circuitry, use of a VM and a soldering iron and preferable access to a service manual or at the very least a schematic diagram with voltage readings.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: receiver cuts in and out

Sounds like a cold solder to me or maybe an oxidized terminal but could be something more simple.

1- If the unit still has power but no sound - Try and reseat the jumpers on the back of the unit - top middle (adapter unit)

2- If you are tapping near the speaker button it may have dirty terminals and may be cleaned with some electronics cleaner. One way to diagnose this is switch it off and on several times and see if it changes.

3- If tapping on the front panel makes it start working - can you duplicate it going back out by tapping? This may be a cold solder on the ops panel. If you have some soldering skills this may be an easy find and fix. If not you may need to take it to a repair center. By no means operate on the unit with power to it with the cover off!

Good luck!

SOURCE: How do I hook up

Maybe hook up the actual source of the TV audio (not necessarily the TV) directly to the Kenwood. Cable and SAT boxes have nice standard digital audio outputs. They're wasted on TV's which typically have sucko speakers. Lower-end analog audio is also available if you want to watch Cable/SAT throught the TV speakers.

SOURCE: Yesterday, I connected two speakers to my Kenwood

Always always always unplug the electrical cord before you change any speaker connections. One tiny ground-fault can fry the circuitry.

Kenwood KR-V7080 reciever will not play through speakers.I can still plug headphones into the reciever and get audio but not through the speakers. Tested the speakers and they still work.


If the speakers used to switch off when the headphone plug was put in the socket, suspect the socket it goes into as being the trouble. It is clearly not connecting the speakers, when the headphone plug is removed.

Kenwood kr-v888d after "ON", through 3sec.


Generally speaking, an amp attempts to protect 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.

Check for loose speaker connections at the speaker as a root cause for intermittent shutdown.

Only one of five speakers is now working. At one point I had three working and when I was pushing the receiver back I lost two speakers and could not get them playiing again. I never did get all five...


To get those two (unknown) speakers back, retrace your physical actions and plug the cables back in that came loose while you were moving the unit.

Crack the manual and start all over with speaker connection and setup to get the last two. Which ones did you say they were?
