    Similar problem with a Kenwood KRF-V5030D; sometimes the remote will work other times not. Have changed batteries, even bought new remote. Have cleaned all surfaces. Suspect problem with infra red receiver on amplifier, but why it is intermittent baffles us. Is it possible the signal from the radio transmitter varies in strength and somehow affects it. This problem started after there was a fire at the transmitter (Pererborough I think), any connection?

Sounds like a low voltage to the front panel as the indicators are there such as control window illumination is dim and the remote does not function.
The remote sends an invisible signal to a detector just behind the front panel and if the signal from the remote is nice and strong from your new batteries in the remote then it must be the panel electronics.

I have found that if you clean the output panel of the remote with a damp cloth and the same to the front panel glass you may be lucky. Just Damp please not dripping in water!!!!!

If ypu keep the amplifier system very clean then this wont be the problem...But this action has worked on TV's with remotes...

If this doesnt work then a service is quick fix..

Can i get a virtual remote control anywhere for my kenwood stereo control amplifier kc-209

The first place to start looking for them is in the Kenwood website. Perhaps they may have a dozen of so working remotes for you. Give them an email and see if they can help you. I had a roller door garage and after 4 years of use, their cheap little remote stopped working. I emailed their website and they had a few in a spare box. Guess what? They gave me two for nothing. Kenwood could do that too. All it takes is hit on the website and email them. Cheer

I have changed batteries in Byron RS14 remote control for timer switches but now lights not switching on although reomte control appears normal.

The RS14 remote control will appear to work even if the main battery is not fitted, this is because its operation is supported by the CR2032 button battery. This includes the RF transmit LED, although the unit is not actually transmitting. Some suggestions, sorry if some of these seem obviously, but that is where I find most problems lie.

1) Have you fitted the right main battery, it should be a A23 12 volt
2) Is it in the right way, it is suprising how similar the pos & neg terminals are on this battery.
3) Check the pointer on the selector switch under the battery cover is pointing to A and that all the receivers are in the A group.

Good Luck

start with the tuner, hook up the equalizer to the tuner, then on the rear of the equilizer hook up all the peripherals except the amps which will go to the tuner outputs and all will feed thru the tuner to the amps and out to the speakers

Kenwood Control Amplifier KC-206

I brought it a while back, almost two years ago, for some $65. But it is not worth it to buy this remote to me. The reason is the power consumption of this remote. It eat up power so fast, that I get tired of replacing the batteries. Otherwise it is an OK remote. So I was lucky to have found that this remote would trigger the control amp. Not too many other universal remote will. eBay has them. Here is a link to one.|66%3A2|65%3A12|39%3A1|240%3A1318|301%3A0|293%3A1|294%3A50

Kenwood stereo control amplifier KC-206 doesn't work

I was able to use an universal remote control that I have, a Radio Shack Kameleon 6 in one remote control which I was able to program to run the audio portion of the Kenwood KC 206 control preamp. By adjust the remote sensor volume to max, I was able to get maximum volume out of the unit and drive the power section very nicely. Now I have to get up and manually turn the manual volume control for addition volume adjustment.

Hopefully Ken can find a remote that he can control the Kenwood control preamp the same way I did. Good luck here.

Kenwood stereo control amplifier KC-206 doesn't work

I found this thread when I was having the same problem with mine. Turns out that it's sort of a problem, but not really. Looking at the manual (which I found in another google search) I believe a "4" on the volume level corresponds to a default remote control setting. The remote varies the level between 0 and 10, but the "10" corresponds to the maximum volume setting on the preamp. So it actually works, it's just that the "4" reading doesn't change. There's probably a pin you can short somewhere to make that default to "10" which would be ideal. But I'm not sure where that is. Now on to my other problem. This particular preamp has a subtle 120 Hz hum...
