Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, unplug from the mains / outlet. Inspect the speaker wires and ensure that no stray strand is inadvertently touching its pair. Use a continuity tester to verify the speaker impedance.

Offhand, the clicks are the relay trying to engage. It forms part of the protection circuitry. If a fault is detected, the built-in watchdog triggers the relay off and disengages the speakers to prevent further damage.

The only easy user doable try of a fix is the above speaker / wires check and performing a RESET:

  • unplug from the wall outlet;
  • press and hold the POWER ON/STANDBY key while plugging back in.
As the term RESET implies, the VR-716 would be forced to revert back to factory defaults removing glitches, errors in settings & configurations as well as memories, presets and user preferences.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

    Ok, I unplugged all speakers and tried the reset. Still turns on clicks and shuts off. How long do I need to hold in the power button?

    Hold it just a couple of seconds.

    If the RESET is not corrective, then it would be a hardware fault. The unit has to be opened up to effect repairs. Options then are:


    • consider a DIY (do-it-yourself) repair if and only if comfortable working with electronic components & circuitry, use of a DVM/VOM, a soldering iron/station and safe practices with electrically powered devices. Access to a Service Manual or at the very least, a schematic diagram would be a necessity;

    • should you be uncomfortable with a DIY, perhaps your best bet would then be to consult with and/or seek the services of an authorized Service Center (specially if still under some form of extended warranty) or a qualified professional.

    If a DIY is being considered:


    • Service Manual is available here;

    • preliminary check on the standby 6.8VDC to relay K101;

    • power amp board X09-6750/10;

    • ICs 301 & 401;

    • +/-76V, +/-46V.

Some times the DVD player needs to be set to output digital audio through HDMI. If that is set, then do the same with the menu options on the TV/LCD/Plasma/Screen that you are using.

IR receiver on unit not working?


Sounds to me like the issue is the rx in the unit. It can be fixed with very little work if you can locate the part. Let me take a look and see if I can locate the part number for you. Although I have to say that Kenwwod can keep a tight lip on their parts lists.
