Problem with Kenwood stereo

Hi, I have a Kenwood stereo and the Power Amplifier/Graphic Equalizer does not power on. I think the model is B-B5. This is what it says on it. The power keeps going on and off. The system was working perfectly then a couple of days ago it started cutting out in mid-play. Now it does not seem to start. It makes a noice as if it is trying to switch on but does not. Can you advise on how or who can fix such 'vintyage, equipment. I am not an expert and have no clue about these things. Regards Chris

If the unit is old, I would start a he beginning and check the wiring connections. A lot of people use electrical tape without solder and it always works itself apart. Pay very close attention to the ground wire because it could be a common ground type system, meaning the battery ground is used for the speakers as well as the power for the eq.

I have a 1987 model kenwood home stereo system ihave a graphic equalizer ge 76 control amplifier kc206 synthesizer tuner kt76 power amp km206 how does the RCA connections hook up which ones go to...


First connect all sources like tuner, cassette player, Cd player into the proper RCA inputs of the control amp, then connect the output of the control amp into the input of the equalizer. Then connect the output of the equalizer into the input of the amplifier. This is how to get the best performance and proper outputs to all the right equipment. The speaker outputs of the amplifier would then go to the speakers.

Let me know if you need more help from me by addressing your post to me, or if you wish to communicate with another expert you can address your post to them I.E. @tech48 or @whoever

Thanks and good luck,

Dave
