Question about Kenwood Audio Players & Recorders
Hi, i have a kenwood krf-x9995d surround receiver, made back when kenwood were a serious audio company, that has a problem in that the sound cuts out when i turn up the volume modestly or change the channel (i run a set top box through it.)
I've been to one a/v service centre here in melbourne but they said to take it to kenwood...only problem is no-one at kenwood service wants to get back to me.
I'd love to know if anyone has a good repairer who knows about
It's likely the power amp is faulty. However if you can't get in touch with Kenwood, then take it to another repair shop or go back to the other and tell them you can't get in touch with Kenwood and could they have a look at it anyway.

Hi there. Are you familiar with board level repair for such products ? Your problem is most likely hardware. Either some of the final output transistors are fried, or it's a dsp problem, a regulator, a diode, a transistor in the circuit.. it could be a lot of things. But if everything was working fine and it quit someday without a change in the system's setup, it really looks like an hardware issue ! Do you have a way in the manual, that sets factory defaults, a kind of reset ? A lot of such units do have that. Try to unplug/interchange speakers as well, a shorted speaker could make the amp go nuts as well, but i wouldn't bet on it. Still, i'd check that out. Hope that helps ! cheebster.

Unless yuo can find a Rotel authorized service center, you are not likely to find any service information. These units should not be difficult to repair. Their designs are pretty much standard with a few twists. Any shop that handles audio repair should be able to resolve this. If not, please post your location and I'll try to locate a shop for you.
Also, are there any indications that the unit is trying to work at all or is it completely dead?

As long as you continue to have both HDMI and optical outputs connected at same time from the cable box, it will probably always choose the default as HDMI. If you do not want to change any connections then the best thing to do in this case is to always leave the cable box turned on. Otherwise, disconnect the HDMI and connect it to the TV by component video.

The problem is not likely to be the switch itself. The unit is rpobably going into "protect" mode because of a problem internally. Try removing all the cables and try to turn on the unit. If the behavior remains the same, the output section requires repair. The most common failure is the output transistors. Expect a parts cost in the $40-$60 range.
