Question about Kenwood KTS300MR Marine Rcvr AM/FM CD Receiver, Sirius Ready

Open Question

KENWOOD KTS-MP400MR (Remote operation)

This unit is installed in a customers boat. The wired remotes (it has two), stoped working soon after purchase and Kenwood replace the stereo itself and that took care of it but soon failed again. The customer was sent a new stereo that he replaced himself. It worked for another few days or trips and for the third time the remotes are dead. Trouble shooting through Kenwood kept saying the stereo was the problem but after three stereo, it seams it's either a junk system, or the remotes are blowing something in the stereo that controls them or both. And Kenwood won't replace anymore. NOTE: the actual stereo never stops working.
Anu idea's?

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

If this is in a boat, I would check the amp unit for moisture damage, as a marine items is a specially built units that fends off water as well as moisture damage exposture. it does not mater if the amp is enclosed inside the hual or cabinet. The problem you are encountering is most likely because of a bad main amp unit, as if you disconnect the speakers and turn uo the unit, and it still goes into protection or shutdown mode, something is wrong with the amp. Like I said before, the fault is most likely due to water damage or moisture damage to the main printed circuit board. Good Luck.

SOURCE: do I need a new equalizer?

Karla, Equipment and water especially SALT water (AND SALT AIR) don't mix very well. The constant high moisture environment affects all the connections (the wires) the rca connectors (where one thing plugs into another, AND the switches. The wires may LOOK good but the connections may not be. When you say "all seems to be in good condition" tell me specifically how you checked them. Sometimes they LOOK good, but ar not making connection. While your stereo is ON, get in there and wiggle everything and see it the speakers come back on.

My first guess is your amplifier/reciever. Does it have speaker switches? If it does, move them up and down or click them many times to see if you can work the corrosion a little. This may help.

I'll try and help, let me know some of the stuff I've asked fo above.

SOURCE: Kenwood KDC-138 Operation Problem

Here's the quote from the manual regarding "dcer": "The speaker wire has a short-circuit or touches the chassis of the vehicle and then the protection function is activated. Wire or insulate the speaker cable properly and press the reset button. If the "PROTECT/DCER" code does not disappear, consult your nearest service center "

I believe the manual can be downloaded from crutchfield .com after you go to the Kenwood KDC-138 page on their website. The reset button is either on the lower left of the face or, removing the face, on the lower left of the body. Hope this helps you.

SOURCE: I have a kenwood vr

Kenwood receivers recently have a commonly known problem with its receiving IR diode within the receiver, to fix this you will have to re-solder the connection on the receiver panel within the faceplate of your kenwood receiver.

Instructions to fix it are at the following link if you are willing to open up your receiver and repair it. lots of people have reported this fix as successful so it is widely believed to be a design flaw in the VR line-up of receivers as it has occured in all the VR families so far.

good luck.

Hi William
Assuming that you have tried changing the batteries in the remote (and put the batteries in the right way round) then the chances are that your remote control unit has failed.
Original Kenwood remotes can be bought here http://kenwoodremote.com/

Universal remote controls are widely available in electrical stores and on the internet. You will need to find the right set up code - you should be able to find the code on the same site.

Use the Amp remote turn on wire, some units don't come with a antenna wire and as an installer we use the remote turn on instead.

No Sound - boat stereo


Assuming that the four speakers are connected to the amplifier, then the amp is the most likely problem component. Does the amplifier show a power light when the system is turned on? Note that there is probably another fuse in the amplifier power wire, near the battery.
