Question about Kenwood VR-8070 7.1 Channels Receiver

1 Answer

Receiver shuts off on its own

I have the kenwood vr-8070 a/v receiver, it will turn on and will work for a while, but then lets say like half way through a movie, will just shut itself off and the power button will start blinking, so then i push it and it stops blinking, then push it again and turns on for a while again. It does seem a bit hot, but i have nothing sitting on top of it, and it has about 8 inches of room between the top of it and the bottom of the shelf it is under, i have no idea what is wrong, can you help me figure this out?

A very common issue with receivers turning themselves off derives from a power overload caused by shorting across the speaker wires. Check each wire to make sure there are no breaks and that the ends of the wires are cleanly separated (no errant strands accidentally touching between positive and negative) at both the receiver end and the speaker end. One easy way to test it is to just use different wires and see if it happens anymore. Another unlikely possibility is that the receiver may be set to a different resistance setting than your speakers (say, 4 ohm instead of 8 ohm)--though modern receivers tend to have internal ways of recognizing and dealing with that.

Check all your speaker wires for shorts, especially behind the amp, doesn't take much for something to throw a spanner in the works, like when cleaning house and moving stuff around.

Kenwood VR-409 surround system clicks off when sound is turned up


Assuming you aren't turning the volume knob past half way before the problem occurs, you most likely have a damaged speaker cable or a bad driver in one of your loudspeakers. (Once your volume knob has reached about half way the amplifier is producing its maximum efficiency.)

Note the position of your volume control when the clipping occurs, then remove one speaker at a time and raise the volume. If you identify a speaker as the culprit, inspect or replace the wire running to it and try it again. If you aren't able to find a bad speaker, the problem is internal and will need to be fixed at a repair shop.

Good Luck,
BB

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.

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.
