Problem with kenwood kr-594 receiver

The unit powers on, I can tune the radio part to a radio station, but I cannot get sound to my speakers.
The standby light on the unit is on solid all the time, (on or off)
when I first turn the unit on, it breifly says muting, then goes away.
I tried to hold the power button down while unplugged and plugged back in to try and reset the unit with no different response from receiver.
thank you

    The standby light is always on, when I turn the receiver on you can view the tuner or whatever is on the menu but then it automatically shuts off. There is no sound when trying to turn it on.

SOURCE: station memory problem

Sorry, I haven't addressed the station memory problem further since replacing the AC switch by-pass capacitor, which same didn't solve the problem. I'm using the receiver only as an amplifier for a Roku SoundBridge, so the station memory isn't a problem at present. When we return to AZ, I may look at it again.

SOURCE: My Kenwood KR-V5570 receiver powers

i had exact problem.
the bare wire speaker cables that connect via a clip connecor in back of the receiver are pushed too far in. something inside is shorting out with the speaker cables. solve this issue by either tightly twistng or soldering the wire ends ( then clip the ends about 1/4 inch long). watch out for the same issue of electrical shorts at the speaker end of the cables.

SOURCE: kenwood kr-v888d after "ON", through 3sec.

Generally speaking, an amp attempts to protect itself from heat, shorts, overloads and operator exuberance by refusing to turn on or stay on.

Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.

You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.

If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.

If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.

Check for loose speaker connections at the speaker as a root cause for intermittent shutdown.

KR-V6050 I cannot get audio to work on radio, video or any other setting. Also the red standby light stays on all the time, even when the power switch is turned off. Alan


Check the input / output connections are in the correct places. The red standby will stay on when the unit is off showing that it is ready for use. To confirm, turn the power off at the wall. The red light should go out after a few seconds.

Just performed a new install on this. Everything powers up and works fine, including the power antenna. Followed set up instructions including selecting speaker output but no sound at all? Radio station...


It sounds like you may have the negative and positive polarity wrong usually to the speakers. I suggest to use black for negative and red for positive so that each speaker is correct. Speaker wire is good but for self installs its a common mistake.

My Kenwood Radio (New) for my boat doesn't tune properly on FM. For example, it only tunes to 94,1 or 94,3 but not to 94,2 It is just ,1 digit off the frequency on most stations. Tried it on manua


Hi there,

Kenwood receivers are usually tuned for their intended destination country, hence the frequency "stepping" of the tuners may differ between countries.

Was this receiver originally intended for your country's frequency? If yes, then contact Kenwood customer service for further advice.

If not, contact your local Kenwood service agent and ask whether the frequency stepping can be reprogrammed.

My kenwood, kr-v5580 dont have sound


There can be many causes of this. Please see the link below as the most likely condition is protect mode as described there. One experiment is to remove the speaker connections completely to see if the unit remains on. If so, the problem is with the speakers. If not, then the problem is internal to the unit. Feel free to post any additional questions.

Hello george_nutti,

The model number you posted is for a center channel speaker which has no controls, and not knowing the exact model number it's difficult to be specific.

Some Kenwood KDC models allow you to select one of 3 "tuning modes", 1) AUTO1 - Automatic search for stations; 2) AUTO2 - Search Preset stations; 3) MANUAL - Normal manual tuning control. If your Kenwood is one of these models, you need to set the tuning mode to MANUAL. For Kenwood Excelon HD receivers, direct access tuning is done by using the included remote. 1) Press DIRECT button on the remote; 2) Press number buttons to enter desired channel number; 3) Press DIRECT button again to exit direct tuning.

Hope this helps.

I have a Kenwood KR-A4010 Am/Fm Stereo Receiver. Every five seconds the sound fades in and out. Can anyone find a solution to this problem?


Something in the unit is smoked and potentially dangerous. Get that puppy down to a repair shop. Don't leave it unattended if you turn it on. Got a fire extinguisher handy?

Station Preset Memory Lost When Power Off


Have same unit, exactly the same problem: station presets lose setting when power is off. I've opened the unit; there is no apparent battery of any kind.

As long as the unit is powered up, the station pre-sets seem to hold. There IS a capacitor across the power switch. Some A/C will therefore be transmitted into the unit when plugged in, even with the switch off. If the capacitor is open, no charge will enter the unit when the power switch is open. I will probably replace this capacitor and see if that fixes things, but it may take several days to do so. Has anyone else tried this?
