Kenwood th - 79E playing up

I got this kenwood, it worked for a while then suddenly stopped, so i put in the charger and turned it on, didnt power up, so i tested the voltage on the battery, 4.6v, put the battery in and put the charger in, waited 10 minutes, took out the battery, tested it again and it was 4.55v, lower than before and still doesnt fire up.

what is my problem?

I had this problem too and found that the d.c. in/charge socket on side of radio had failed , got a replacement from Kenwood and fitted it myself (not an easy job)miniature bit soldering iron and magnifying aid needed.When rebuilt the radio seemed to be perfect and working like new,but the replacement socket was not the same as original and did not allow safe charging of the battpack unless SUPPLIED CHARGER ONLY used or battery will overheat or worse if 12 volts is used.................. TRY charging the battery away from the radio using a different charger with crocodile clips or similar lash- up for a few minutes 4.8 volt battery six volt charger
6 volt battery 7 volt charger and so on, then if the radio powers up
after the battery is refitted HAPPY DAYS Before you do all this check your charger output plug with a voltmeter GOOD LUCK

Charger should be able to power the radio at 'EL' level, if NOTHNG happens, I'd say charger is on the blink.

Check the capasitors in the power supply. These often have a popped top surface, not flat like normal. These need to be changed. It can be as many as 10-15 bad ones.

My Nokia 2310 suddenly switched off. It didnt switch on again.
I tried putting the battery(of problem phone) into another cellphone, the battery works fine.
I tried to charge the problem phone, but is not showing any activity upon inserting the charger jack. Other phones are getting charged using the same charger.

Any idea of what the problem could be?

Kenwood head unit CD and AUX sound not working


I fixed the sound problem with tech support from Kenwood. I had the blue wire from the Kenwood which is the antennae turn on wired to the amp turn on for the vehicle (2001 Blazer with Bose factory stereo). This is how I was told to wire it from the installation tech where I purchased the wiring harness. The tuning played fine because the Bose amp turned on when I played the tuner but when I played the cd or aux the amp turned off, thus no sound. The kenwood tech toldd me to wire the blue/white wire to the amp turn on for the vehicle so the amp would be on when ever power to the Kenwood was on. I rewired this way and everything works great now.

Won't play any songs.


I had this problem with my player (th 1101) when I was transferring songs from iMesh. After awhile I found out that even though I could listen to the files on the computer some wouldn't go on the mp3 player. Looked it up and there is an encoding on some tracks (preimium tracks they call it) that unless you pay for them they won't transfer off the computer (CD, MP3 players ect.). They also had free tracks that works just fine. Hope that helps
