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

Re: my Kenwood VR-509 Receiver - Luv it! But it's dead. Upon powering up, in a few seconds it shuts off with a flashing 'standby' LED. Unplugged all connections & popped the top - PCB's look OK, nothing looks obviously cooked, high side of input transformer checks at about 1.5 ohms. Ideas? Thanks.

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.

Kenwood vr606 reciever shutting off subwoofer and centre speaker simultaneously after few minutes/seconds of powering on. WHat's the cause?


The receiver's out put sections are grouped in pairs. Front left and right in one output, rear left and right in second output, and center channel and sub output on the third. Sounds like a semiconductor or semiconductors have gone bad in the center & sub output.

My vr-507 shut down to protect my speakers but will not power up now.


Sounds like the output transistors in the amp are blown. Try powering on without speakers attached - if it still shuts off your amp is blown and needs to be repaired.

CHECK FOR CLEARED COOLING VENTS & FOR PROPERLY WORKING COOLING FANS. THIS WILL CAUSE SHUTDOWN OF THE UNIT. IF ITS ALL CLEAR, YOU PROBABLY HAVE A POWER SUPPLY ISSUE.

I have a Kenwood VR-804 surround system receiver. Stand by light keeps blinking when turned on but no sound no nothing when turned on just powers up for a few seconds then shuts off with light blinking. I...


Blinking indicates that the power source has shut itself down because another component has died and it's shorting it. Unless you have experience in electronics it's time to take the receiver to a repair shop.

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!

The power transformer is bad. Part # L07-2485-05 it costs about $ 85 bucks to replace it. It is the big one.

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)
