Question about Kenwood Audio Players & Recorders

4 Answers

I have a Kenwood GE-7030. It has been sitting in the closet for about 10 years (I was in prison for 10 years and just got out). It was working when I put it up. Now, when I plug it in, the standby light lights, but when I press the power switch, it clicks but does not turn the equalizer on. I have looked inside for a fuse, but I can't find one on any of the circuit boards. Also, the transformer never gets warm.

I own one and I've temporarily got mine working although it hasn't stayed working for very long but if anyone has a permanent fix then I'm open to suggestions!
What I've done to get mine working temporarily is:
1) I unscrewed the Case (12 x Screws I think) and the Front Panel (3 x Screws), Went to undo the 2 x Silver or Gold Looking Screws from just above the Display but would have been hidden by the front panel and it started working, So tightened the screws back up and put it back together and it carried on working for a day or two, Tried to perform the same procedure again and it didn't have the same effect unfortunately...:(
2) I just turn it upside down and give it a good Slap on the bottom, I've just done it and it started working after the third time I slapped it... :)
I would warn against doing either of these and if you continue and suffer any Injury / Damages while performing either of these then you do so at your own risk.

Hi Nina,
Surely the best people to ask would be Kenwood? Their customer support team should have the answer (and it's likely to be 'no').

Wire Kenwood GE 7030 equilizer to onkyo tx sr504 receiver

The manuals explain it.

For all practical purposes an EQ or any analog audio processor connects exactly like a Tape Deck - into any RCA pairing that has both an OUT and an IN and can be selected to be in or out of the audio path.

However, on this and just about any modern digital-capable AV Receiver, activation of any external loop that would connect a processor or tape deck would automatically DISable any digital audio sources. The effects of the processor, therefore, can only be used with analog stereo sources. It WILL affect the sound going to all speakers if you use the various Digital Sound Porcessing modes as the extra channels are derived from the stereo channels anyway.

No display lighting up.

The first thing to check is the solder connections on the display itself. The display should have a series of pins that you will see on the PC board that is behind the front panel. Resolder the connections on either end. These are the connections that supply both the +and - sides of power. These often develop poor connections. Update this with the results of the resoldering and we'll continue from there if the problem is not resolved.

Hello mogly20,

The amp probably won't know if it's you or the homeless guy, so try smashing a glass bottle on it like he did. If that doesn't work, I'd recommend you locate another homeless guy and buy another amp.

Hope this helps.
