Question about Electronics - Others

1 Answer

I was and have been playing our Kenwood stereo system very loudly for some time. Don't worry as we live in a detached house! However, now the sound has completely packed in on the system and I can't hear radio, CD or tape playback, although the radio and cd are showing signs of still going through the motions whereas the tape decks arn't. Can you help please?

This sounds like a built in job rather than seperate units for each function. If so then there are two possiblities for the problem. First off you have blown the main amp. In these type of units these tend to be a large IC attached to a heat sink. It will have a number of legs (pins) coming out of it. On its side it will have a letter and number code, often like STK4121 or something like it. If it's gone this number (on yours) will help you replace it. The IC will control most amp functions, so you will lose all sound on all channels.
The other cause is a problem with the power supply section. This is more diffcult to solve, but you can start by looking around for burnt or damaged parts.

I have a Kenwood KDC-MP2032 installed in a boat. I changed the battery in the boat and now I can't get the tuner to power on. If I need to replace a fuse, where are they and what size fuse do I...


Try to check first the fuse on the fuse box of your boat if it is still good then the fuse of your stereo is located at the back of the stereo itself. Detached the stereo from its housing or holder you will see the fuse at the back of it.

How do I connect my iPod to a stereo Kenwood


<p>The superior audio quality thanks to the Kenwood stereo system is as good as any on the market. However, many of Kenwood audio receivers contain no iPod connection port. Even the business hubs of high-end entertainment that interface with the computer via USB cannot provide connectivity to an iPod. But that does not mean you cannot high-quality audio through your stereo Kenwood iPod. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Put your Kenwood stereo. Connect devices with the stereo turned on may lead to spikes in volume that can damage the speakers and even your ears. Turn up the stereo, so you can use the set of connectors on the back to see. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Connect the end of 3.5 mm 3.5 mm to RCA cable for the headset from your iPod. If you do not have a cable 3.5mm to RCA, you can buy one of the sound equipment stores or electronics stores like Radio Shack. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Connect the RCA end to your cable 3.5mm to RCA in an available port on the back of your Kenwood stereo. Put your Kenwood stereo, so you can access the buttons on the front. Turn the sound and select the channel of your iPod is connected. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Test the connection. Lower the volume on the Kenwood stereo and start a track playing on your iPod that you can recognize. Turn your volume until you play the iPod through the stereo to listen. If you hear no sound, check the "Monitor CD2/TAPE2" is active, and "Mute" is off <br />

Have a kenwood car stereo, MP3. It has been stuck on on screen that displays protect and will not play anything.


You should disconnect the red wire that goes to battery. Leave disconnected for at least 8 hours so the player can reset. Most newer electroinics have these stupid protection systems that are way to touchy. I think companies just don't want us listening to loud music anymore.

My kenwood receiver has


If you are referring to the rear speakers, it is normal. The rear speakers are not supposed to get a signal as loud as the fronts or center.

A surround sound system was originally developed for playing movies and the rear channels are for effects. In most surround modes the center channel will always be the loudest with the widest range of audio signals.

I have been repairing these type of systems since they have been on the market, so I know a lot about them.

This Kenwood you have is like most surround systems and does not have a feature that you would obviously like to have, 5 channel stereo. Only a few surround systems have this feature and they cost much more than the Kenwood systems. Denon and Marantz both make one with that feature. In 5 channel stereo you get a full signal to all the speakers. All the other surround modes you get a much lower signal to the rear speakers.

So in closing, you do not need it fixed, there is nothing wrong with it. You have a common complaint that many people have who buy a surround sound system but are not fully understanding of just what a surround systems is supposed to be capable of
. This is something that the salesman who sold it to you should have explained to you, that way you could have purchased a system that would have better suited your needs.

I would be happy to give you more help if you would like, just let me know. As I already stated, I have many years of experience with surround sounds systems, in fact I own the exact Kenwood model that you have and I like it very much. It is about the best you can get for that price.
