Question about Kenwood VR-506 Receiver

1 Answer

Kenwood VR 208

When I turn the Receiver on, the red standby light blinks and then the receiver turns off. I'm told it might be the speaker wires. This system is about 10 years old. Please help.

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.

I have a vr-255 receiver and the power light flashes

Hi Willie,

If the standby indicator is blinking that just means that the speaker wires are short circuited some where. Make sure all of the wires are intact, unplug everything starting with the power. Then you will want to make sure all wires going to the receiver are not kinked / twisted / or exposed. If all wires look good, plug everything back in and power on the unit. you should be good to go.

Hi changeman5 Have you tried to do a full reset on the unit. Disconnect from the wall for 24 hrs. Then try again. If the problem persists, it may have power supply issues, or a DC offset problem shutting it down. If you are game, I could talk you through some more diagnostics...

Receiver standby light,no power

WOOHOO!! I fixed this issue... same problem as everyone else has mentioned... to reset the Kenwood VR-606 receiver, unplug the unit. Hold the power button down and while holding the power button plug the unit in.
Say a prayer...
Then press the power button.
My display isn't working, but my speakers are working, and that's really all I care about right now... good luck to others!

Kenwood VR-307 Receiver standby light blinking

Hello, sorry to say this, but there is a hardware error. Possibbly something is wrong at the output stage. Please send it to tech for a repair. But first disconnect the speakers and then try to turn it on. If there is no change the error is still present. Best regards. Arpi
