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)

Hi . I have a Kenwood receiver V-3080 that on start up it comes on for a few sec. the turns off like you switched it off then after several time it stays on without any further problems.

The wiring of a speaker has back feed to a safety shut off because a wire is touching or the polarity has been switched. The volume may be turned up to high to and will cause it to do the same. It is an overload feature, so that you don't blow your speakers with a 100 watts of power surging to it. Changing positive to negitive of the speakerswire to speaker may help.

Kenwood vr 357 surround system stand ny light keeps blinking when turned on but no sound no nothing when turned on just powers up for 7 seconds then shuts off with light blinking

This means there is a problem with the system it is in the protect mode it will not come out of that mode untill repairs are made. More than likley the power amp is blown.

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.
