Question about Kenwood Audio & Video Receivers

1 Answer

I have an old Kenwood receiver that does not power up anymore. Not even the red standby light glows. I have power to the unit but that is it. I have checked the fuses on the inside but after that I am no good. KR-V7070 I think that it was accidentally plugged into a reverse polarity plug. Can anyone help me?

If the voltage was 110, the polarity should not have made a difference. In all probability, the input power transformer has an open primary. This can happen with a power surge or just because of age. If you have an Ohmmeter, with the unit unplugged, measure across the 2 input pins for the main transformer. It should read about 3 ohms or less. If it reads infinity, it is open and must be replaced.

KR-V6050 I cannot get audio to work on radio, video or any other setting. Also the red standby light stays on all the time, even when the power switch is turned off. Alan


Check the input / output connections are in the correct places. The red standby will stay on when the unit is off showing that it is ready for use. To confirm, turn the power off at the wall. The red light should go out after a few seconds.

How do you turn off standby on a kenwood krx-89 stereo


Hi, is the red light that says power On? If not, it could just be the fuse since I had the same problem. If you take the lid off, it should be in the left rear and is a 250v 6amp fuse. I had the same problem where only the standby light and the input lights were on. Neither the radio and cassette lights were on.

My Denon AVR-75 seems to stay in standby (red standby light is on) and I don'd get surround sound through it. How do I get it out of standby?


if the receiver does not power on from standby there is a problem like bad power supply or even bad macroprocessor. You need to bring it to a service center for diagnosing. 10-years old receiver, maybe better to buy new one.

Receiver standby light,no power


WOOHOO!! I fixed this issue... same problem as everyone else has mentioned... to reset the Kenwood VR-606 receiver, unplug the unit. Hold the power button down and while holding the power button plug the unit in.
Say a prayer...
Then press the power button.
My display isn't working, but my speakers are working, and that's really all I care about right now... good luck to others!
