Do you mean KENWOOD VR-209?


Register and download the manual for free at retrevo.com


http://www.retrevo.com/support/Kenwood-VR-209-Receivers-manual/id/480dj179/t/2/


Page 21 descriebs the microprocessor reset for USA & Canada; or other countries.



Generally speaking, an amp protects itself from heat, shorts, overloads and operator exuberance by refusing to turn on or stay on.


Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.


You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.


If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.


If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.

Kenwood vr 357 surround system stand ny light keeps blinking when turned on but no sound no nothing when turned on just powers up for 7 seconds then shuts off with light blinking


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.

My kenwood av surround receiver vr-209 is turning on then turning off right away. what could be wrong and how do you fix it?


Disconnect all speakers at the receiver, then turn it on. If it still cuts out, it's a power supply, capacitor, or transister issue and will need to be serviced. If it stays on, re connect speakers one by one and turn the receiver back on until you find the problem wire or speaker. Once you find the wire or speaker that's causing the problem, disconnect the speaker wire at the speaker and turn it back on again. (Make sure wires are separated) if it still cuts out, check the entire wire or replace it. if it stays on, check the speaker with a meter for a short. If your not comfortable with doing that, any electronics shop will generally do it for you for free. This is the most common problem among all brands of receivers. Wires get crossed and short, then short the power supply. Hope this helps. If you need further help troubleshooting, post a comment and I will be glad to help.

Kenwood VR-209 turns off after 20 minutes


Overheating is likely your root cause. Move the unit to make sure it is getting enough air around it and remove anything that you have sitting on top of it ESPECIALLY any device that produces heat of it's own such as your CD player. If that does not solve the problem, listen at a lower volume and/or defeat any equalization or bass enhancement circuitry.

Turns on then shuts off like it has a bad fuse


HI...

Check to see that all the speakers are firmly connected at BOTH ends.
Also,if the receiver has speaker select switches, see if turning off the speakers allows it to stay on.

Let me know , Thanks

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?
