Re: Kenwood VR-307 Receiver standby light blinking

Hello, sorry to say this, but there is a hardware error. Possibbly something is wrong at the output stage. Please send it to tech for a repair. But first disconnect the speakers and then try to turn it on. If there is no change the error is still present. Best regards. Arpi

Blinking indicates that the power source has shut itself down because another component has died and it's shorting it. Unless you have experience in electronics it's time to take the receiver to a repair shop.

This means there is a problem with the system it is in the protect mode it will not come out of that mode untill repairs are made. More than likley the power amp is blown.

I have a vr-255 receiver and the power light flashes

Hi Willie,

If the standby indicator is blinking that just means that the speaker wires are short circuited some where. Make sure all of the wires are intact, unplug everything starting with the power. Then you will want to make sure all wires going to the receiver are not kinked / twisted / or exposed. If all wires look good, plug everything back in and power on the unit. you should be good to go.

Kenwood VR-209 Still does not work after the speakers are unplugged.

I have a VR205 with the same problem. I can make it stay on by doing this: as soon as the display lights up turn off the power and then turn it back on quickly. Do this 3 or 4 times. Mine usually stays on after this....the relays latch and all is well I suspect one of the step-start relays as I have checked everything else out and all is in order and the receiver works fine. I would love to find a shop manual for this series of receivers. Anyone know where such an animal exists?
