    IT's just short burst enough that you know someone is trying to communicate. All radio's do same thing.. I was playing arround with radio's, I held small button in, the one under the push to talk... I turned radio on while holding the button in and now their really hosed up. I hit push to talk and it shuts off.Any way to reset to factory? I would appreciate any suggestions

    Hello fellows_golf,

    Can you please describe what the noise sounds like? Does it last as long as you hold down the Push To Talk switch or is it a quick burst? Do all three of the radios react the same way?

    Best Regards,

    Agent Ken

Hello again, fellows_golf,

Having the radio turn off when you hit the PTT does sound a lot like a battery issue. The battery either might not be charged well or it might be too old and in need of replacement.

This might also be the source of the "short burst." If the radio you are transmitting with doesn't have sufficient battery power for continuous transmission, then you might hear it transmit only for a second when listening on the other radios.

I am not familiar with this specific model so I do not know if there is a factory soft reset. I'd recommend replacing the batteries and if that doesn't change things, contacting the manufacturer Kenwood Communications via their website at

Best Regards,

What kind of radio? Portables? Mobile? Need a lot more info. Otherwise, based on what you have said, and only that little bit of info, it sounds like you have a portable with a battery that will not hold sufficient charge to transmit. Quite common.

What could cause Transceiver to shut when power output is increased over 40 watts?

My first guess would be that you have a bad/poor antenna,coax, causing high reflected power, next would your power source. You will need a 25A or higher rated power supply, with clean 13.5V power to run at the higher power levels. Meter the power supply voltage when you xmt at a lower power level, maby 30w, watch for drop in voltage. If voltage drops (some) at 30w, most likely supply won't hold voltage up at your 40w and higher power levels.

Hi i have a kenwood system which has a loud hum/buzz over the vol this is louder on radio basically unable to hear any music / speach the hum also is on all other selections cd tape aux record deck mo

This sounds like an earth loop, try discounting the earth in the record deck 13 amp plug. If this works reconnect earth and get a stereo isolating transformer to go between the output of the record deck and Kenwood amp. Remember disconnecting the earth can be dangerous if you don't know what you are doing, best to just disconnect the RCA leads from the deck to start with. To explain an earth loop it's when you have more than one earth point e.g. amp with a earth and record deck with a earth or a CD deck. You can get the transformer from marlin.

I have a miller xmt 304 i bought it used. i have a 12vs wire feeder on it and im not getting power to it. any suggestions on what the problem could be


Ok, let troubleshoot this one.

There is only two connectors on your 12VS wire feeder; the lead cable that goes to the + side of the XMT welding machine and the VS cable (Volt Sensing) that goes to you work piece joining the ground cable (don't forget the ground clamp).

a) The mode switch on your XMT must be on V-sense feeder.
b) Your 12VS feeder depending on what kind of wire you are using (innershield) negative side or gas wire + side.
That's it. If there i no spark, there is something wrong with your XMT.

If this was useful to you please vote. Thanks.

I need to locate an operating manual for a kenwood

Most Keenwood stereos require the radio to be in standby mode. this is done by pushing the source button. Once in standby push and hold source button down and menu should appear. scroll through until you find aux. on or off switch to desired setting. dothis by the control lever or knob.Then push source again to get out of menu.

Driving along and radio stopped working, the word "ocer" came across face of radio. Now, radio and cd player both will not work. Help!

I pushed the reset button and "standby" mode appeared. I proceeded to hit the source button and switched to tuner and cd player with no problems.

The home position switch from the angle of the front display is not pushed correctly. the problem is mechanical.
If you glue a little tip of plastic between the actuator and the homeposition switch, your problem is history.
In my case, a tip of a little tiewrap did it.
