    I have the same problem.  It may have something to do with the power supply.

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.

Protect appears on display on kenwood kdc 3034


Disconnect all the speaker wires at the receiver and turn it back on. If itdoesn't go into protect mode, your receiver is ok.

Reconnect the speakers one at a time being sure to turn the receiver off each time you connect a speaker and turn the receiver on until your receiver goes into protection mode again.

When it goes into protect mode again, the last speaker you connected has a problem. Trace the speaker's wire to the speaker looking for cuts or shorts along the way.

If you have a multimeter, switch itto ohms and check the speaker for a dead short, if you show a dead short you have a blownspeaker. Hope this helps.

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.

Kenwood dnx7100 in protect mode


Hi,

Your receiver is detecting a problem in the speaker wiring and is going into protection mode. If the receiver shuts off due to volume level, this can be caused by a poor connection, damaged speaker, insufficient gauge wire, or connecting multiple speakers to one speaker output. The connections at the receiver and speaker should be clean with the ends of the wire twisted tightly, preventing any strands from missing the terminal. Connecting two sets of wires together to add distance should be done with terminals and insulated to prevent the wires from touching each other. If using thin wire, replace completely with heavier gauge wire; do not add to the existing length. Be careful not to push the speaker wires in too far, this will cause the speaker terminals to grip the insulation and not the conductor. The speakers being used must have an impedance within the range listed next to the receiver’s speaker outputs, normally between 6? - 16?. The impedance of your speaker should be listed behind the speaker itself.

If problems continue, disconnect the speaker wires from behind the receiver and power the receiver on. The receiver will shut off quickly if there is an internal short and would need to be serviced if this happens. If it stays on, try connecting the speakers one at a time. Replace any speaker that causes the receiver to shut off.

Thanks.

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.

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)
