Kenwood 1090vr; amp shuts off

Kenwood 1090vr; I'll press power and the phono selection will blink 4 times and then the amp shuts down. I've removed all wiring to check and see if another compenent was the cause, but no luck. Any Suggestions? Thanks!

I have had a Kenwood VR-407 reciever for almost 9 years now but it has just started cutting off. The small power/standby light above the power button goes off when I power it up but then it shortly...


If you've already disconnected the speakers then I suspect the fault is internal on the amplifier and the unit is shutting down to protect iteself.

The fault with most amplfiers can normally be traced to blown or leading capacitors (bulge on the top or liquid around base) which can be replaced for little cost if you've got the technical ability and equipment to desolder and resolder components on a PCB.

First thing to do would be to remove the cover and check the capacitors as detailed above.

How to connect a kenwood ka- 9100 to a pioneer vsx-d608


You don't say, what role the Kenwood is supposed to play but I'll assume you want to slave the Kenwood (and its speakers) to the Pioneer.

The VSX-D608 doesn't have multi-channel pre-outs so you wouldn't have local control of the volume at the Pioneer.

http://www.auctiva.com/hostedimages/showimage.aspx?gid=108365&ppid=1122&image=404270323&images=404269872,404269931,404269984,404270049,404270137,404270323&formats=0,0,0,0,0,0&format=0

The KA could be a subwoofer amp as the Pioneer has a pre-out for that.

Outs to Ins. "Power In" on the KA would be for an external volume-controlled source. Otherwise, use one of its non-Phono inputs.

I inherited a technics SL-6 turntable system and a very old sears audio by fisher am/fm stereo receiver along with 1 pair of kenwood ks-401ht front speakers and cant get any sound. I have the technics...


Your connections seem to be right.

Let's distill this down to its simplest configuration... does the onboard FM produce sound? If not, nothing will.

NEVER USE MAXIMUM VOLUME FOR TROUBLESHOOTING.

Turn the volume control to something medium.

The errant switch, control or condition may change and you will suddenly release the amp's full power and possibly destroying your speakers. If a signal isn't audible at 1/2 volume it's probably not there.

Carefully examine the front panel for clues like a misplaced Mute or Tape Monitor control or Multichannel Analog Input selected.

There is a good chance that a common control may have developed a high-resistance or 'dead' spot through idleness and is causing your symptom. Turn the POWER OFF and operate every control throughout its range a number of times, especially rarely-used ones like Tape Monitors and the Mute control.

Turn the volume to something reasonable and see if that helped.

My kenwood vr-616 keeps cutting off while listining to the radio or watching the dvd, I have plugged the dvd into a different power supply and the dvd keeps playing but the system shuts off and the power...


Hi,

The unit may be overheating and shutting down to protect itself.

Please check the fan grills and make sure they are not clogged up with dust as can often happen to amps and receivers. If that is the case then a vacuum cleaner can be used to remove the dust.

If the unit is inside a cabinet try running it outside the cabinet. If it runs for longer before shutting down then this would indicate that it is overheating.

I had the same problem with my Sony home theater amp/dvd and cleaning out the dust cured the problem.

Please rate my answer if this helps.

Many thanks,

Chris

Kenwood:1090VR Cracking sound from front speakers


There are poor solder connections somewhere on the board. Usually these are at the voltage regulators where there can be some heat. Look for 3-legged transistors attached to small metal heatsinks, If you can solder, resolder the pins on those parts. Also look for any connections that appear to be grasiny or have rings and resolder them too.

Keep us posted.

I have a record player and d0nt know how to set it up. it is a kenwood kd 38r


Hi ipspencer

First, do you have an amp that has a built in phono preamp. You can determine this from the front panel, there being a Phono input to select. If not,then you will need to get a preamp or you will not get any decent sound from the deck. You can get phono preamps online from here

If you need any more help, or info on how to set it up, just give me a hoy.

Receiver shut down only when using phono preamp


You may want to try putting an attenuater in the line with the RCA's to cut the input signal back just a little bit. So you are not driving the amp so hard with your preamp.
