Question about Kenwood VR-407 Receiver
I have a Kenwood VR-407 AV receiver that has no sound from the tuner input. About a month ago I turned it to tuner expecting to hear the radio as always. But I was greeted with silence. If I turn the volume all the way up I can barely hear the radio. All the other inputs are fine, Cable box, DVD, & VCR.
It sounds as though one or more of the MOSFET's failed. MOSFET's are metal-oxide semiconductor field effect transistors. In layman's terms the Ic responsible for amplifying the sound produced in a given circuit.
These are not difficult to replace for a qualified shop and I think you would be surprised at how inexpensive it actually is - for a qualified shop...
My advice send it in and have it estimated and repaired. You might even research the net and send it off to have it done... Stereo repair is a very competitive market and it could save you some real bucks..
Hope this helps
