Re: 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!

Re: receiver standby light,no power

You might have a bad output. On the VR 606 model there
is a STK413-020A on the heat sink that I would guess to
be bad
The one I fixed awhile back would light up display then
shut off with the power light flashing.

Blinking standby light on Denon

could be a couple things. Either a blown channel in the amp, or a bad voltage regulator. would have to investigate further with a meter to find out.

No power output or standby light flashes.

Sounds like either a blown mainpower fuse or the thermal fuse for the power transformer. If the protect circuit was kicking in, the display would light up, but then turn off with a red blinking light. the green light with no display means the transformer is not getting power.

What lights are on? What happens when you press the power button?

Hello - Our Pioneer vsx-305 display screen doesn't light up anymore and we are unable to get it to work even though the on/off button appears to operating correctly (red standby light comes on). T

It is likely failing due to age.Cold solders fail, corrosion can cut a connection, a capacitor can harden and fail... a myriad of things can happen in time. Repairing it will cost more than an inexpensive replacement. The same receiver can be had on ebay from $60 up (with shipping). It is a cost benefit issue at this point.

Seems to be some sort of power problem since the READY light is no longer on, and therefore the remote control cannot turn the receiver on, nor can pressing the power on button turn it on.

If there is no standby light. Open the top cover and check the fuse on the primary power side. MAKE SURE THE POWER CORD IS UNPLUGGED.There are two transformers in this model. A small one for standby and a large one for the main section.A relay clicks when you touch the power button and switches on the large transformer and the display comes on. If there is any problem in the output stage the the relay will click and the system will go into standby again.

Won't power up; push power button on, hear click in back left of unti, get nothing on front display and no output from speakers; as if unit trying to operate

Disconnect the speakers and see what happens. Carefully examine the speaker cables for unwanted connections (shorts).
Take a clue from when the power problem appeared. Something was moved and made the buzz a (probable) dead short.

Reciever won't power up

HI, this amp may need to be reset. also, i would check the voltage selector on the back side to make sure the switch is set to 110-120v. once this is done, you will need to reset the microcomputer. here is the procedure.

The microcomputer may malfunction (unit cannot be operated,
or shows an erroneous display) if the power cord is unplugged
while the power is ON, or due to some other external factor. If
this happens, execute the following procedure to reset the
microcomputer and return the unit to its normal operating

Procedure- Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet, then
plug it back in while holding down the POWER key.

ok, after this reset, if your receiver isn't operational, it may have serious damage to its power board.

Yamaha RX-V595A tuns off automatically

This was happening to mine also, all of a sudden. This solution came from the owners manual. Sure enough, the impedance selector was stuck in the middle , between 4 and 8 ohms....I also, made sure the speaker wires were not touching each other at the splice. Problem fixed.

The unit fails to turn on when 
STANDBY/ON is pressed, or set in 
the standby mode suddenly soon 
after the power has been turned on. 
The power cord is not plugged in or the 
plug is not completely inserted. 
on the rear panel is not fully set to the 
upper or lower end. 
Firmly plug in the power cord. 
Set the switch fully to the upper or 
lower end when the unit is in the 
standby mode.
