My kenwood vr615 reciever had the volume turned up, unit shut down and now when it gets to a certain volume that is much lower than normal it will turn off and the stand-by light will flash, I have to turn...

hello ,i strongly suspect the units protect circuit is sensing a speaker problem.Listen to each speaker to see if all the drivers(woofer,midrange,tweeter) are working and if so are any of them sounding distorted.When an amp is damaged it wont play at all,sounds like a bad speaker to me.

Receiver makes clicking sound before power shuts off. i checked all speaker connections for shorts per troubleshooting!

What you are hearing is the speaker protection relays. See the link below for a generic explanation of protect mode (the mode your unit is in at the moment.) Update this if you have some test gear and wish to attempt to repair this.

I cannot get the volume to go above +13 therefore I cannot hear from the speaker son my kenwood vr-5900. It is about 7 years old.

Ok one more clarification, does the volume knob spin infinitley or does it have a set min and max. If it spins infinitley it is an encoder. What an encoder basically does is send a binary signal to a decoder chip which in turn should control a digital potentiometer. Unfortunatley one of these components may be bad.

Kenwood vr-5900 no sound

Check you settings on the receiver. get into the menu of the unit and check the "Audio" settings. if you can choose by specific input, select "Digital" otherwise, select "Auto" that should correct the problem. If you still have a problem, post a comment and I can help you troubleshoot some more.

Reciever wont stay powered on

I fear that there's no easy fix. Sounds like the power supply or the board which controls it is bad. If you're not an electronics repair person, it'll need to go to a repair shop.

You need to make sure you ohms are correct if there too low this will happen to protect the amp.

Probably an issue with the switching power supply or possibly a shorted output. There are various protection circuits that will cause that. Most suspect is the SMPS (switch mode power supply) fault detection. (Check your output for a short though, i.e.shorted speaker wires)

Kenwood, Very little sound for no reason!!

Check all (and I mean ALL) of your front panel buttons. It sounds like someone has pushed the tape monitor button or something like that. Be SURE to turn the volumn down BEFORE you start pushing buttons. Good luck.
