Question about Kenwood VR-405 Receiver
Someone at my work was gonna give away a fairly new kenwood vr-405 receiver, so I took it for my freind becuase he needed a new one. When I plugged it in, right away the standby light went on, and it turned on. I turned it off, plugged some speakers in, and it didnt turn on. I unplugged it and plugged it back in, and now the standby light doesnt turn on. No sign of any electricity. I never tested if there was any electricity going through it, becuase I do not know how besides sticking my finger in to get it shocked XD. I really want this stereo to work, becuase I got it for free and it is pretty nice. It worked once, so I think it will work again.

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?

make sure that all input cables are in the correct positon also make sure that any inputs you are using don't have a macrovision in them that will also kill your sound due to copyright laws and stuff but main thing check all wires coming in to receiver and if you need more inputs go to walmart and get a rca splitter basicaly its a 1 in two out connection to add more cables in the input

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.
