Question about Kenwood VR-405 Receiver

Open Question

I've had this receiver for about 10 years, and it stopped powering up suddenly a couple of days ago (no display, no stand-by light, nothing). There happened to have been a storm pass through a couple of hours prior, but it's done fine through many worse storms, and no other electical problems were assosiated with our storm two days ago. I've disconnected all speakers and otehr connections and tried plugging into a known good outlet while depressing the power button, checked the only fuse I could locate inside the unit near where the power cord enters for continuity with a multi-tester (checked good and looks fine), and checked for 110 volts where the power cord first connects inside the unit. Those few things I knew to check seemed normal. Any other things jump out at anybody as to the problem might be, what I can do as far as troubleshooting, etc.? Thanks, John

SOURCE: Kenwood KR V8080 receiver

if you sent 110v down the speaker wires & into the amp you most likely have damaged the audio outputs or the output ic. Look for a big aluminum heatsing & on one side you may find 1 or 2 ic's or numerous transistors, the ic's are hard to check, the transistors are easier to check, if transistors replace in pairs. also check for burnt /open resistors near outputs

SOURCE: no sound from front right and left speakers

you may have a dc condition present on speaker outputs. this could be caused by dry solder joints, suggest blanket resolder of the output stages for front channels.

SOURCE: I have an old Kenwood receiver that does not power up

If the voltage was 110, the polarity should not have made a difference. In all probability, the input power transformer has an open primary. This can happen with a power surge or just because of age. If you have an Ohmmeter, with the unit unplugged, measure across the 2 input pins for the main transformer. It should read about 3 ohms or less. If it reads infinity, it is open and must be replaced.

Keep us posted,
Dan

SOURCE: Kenwood VR-509 Receiver won't power up...

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.

SOURCE: receiver makes clicking sound before power shuts

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.

Thanks,
Dan

Back - light problem. Check and replace damaged component/s at its back-light inverter board, or replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. It will be best to replace the inverter board as card basis.

To some model sets; especially LED back-lighted types; the back-light inverter circuit will be part of the main power supply board [SMPS]. In such cases, the power supply board might need replacement. To some models sets, the back-light inverter and SMPS section circuit will be integrated at its main board itself. If so; the main board should be replaced.

2 years ago? Have you checked any of the wiring for it under the hood? Any wires they may have been spliced could be corroded or simply have come apart. Take some time to look closely.

I have an HP Pavilion a4000. It just stopped working a couple days ago. Display just rolled up and quit. I've been through everything I know how to deal with. When you push the power button it


First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

Nothing shows up in the display. This has only been recently after a power glitch. The display lights when a call is made or received.


I unplugged the base unit from the wall for more than 10 minutes. Sometime after I plugged it back in (not immediately)the display re-appeared.

Dead, no power


It sounds like ze power supply blew when it was being turned off. This seems to be typical of plasmas. Bad power supplys wont let the tv come on and will result in no lights coming on. Since there R no lights coming on, I would suspect the power supply first, followed by the power control board,. and circuit board. It may cost anywhere from $250 to $500 to fix.

I hope you didn't buy a new one, ours stopped last week after 25 years. All that was needed were new brushes for the motor. Anyone with a screwdriver could replace them. 4Kenwood had the parts to me in a couple of days.
