Hi Dave

Have you tried floooding the internals of the vol control with a contact lubricant spray... CRC2-26 is my favourite magic fix for noisy controls.

Kenwood kr 5050 volume stuck on high cant change

These days the circuit of the volume control is controlled by an IC in modern amps. These can go faulty preventing adjustment of the sound by the volume control. The only cure is to find the IC and replace it. You can start in the area where the volume control is located. If it's not mounted direct on the PC board, follow the connections to the board. Hopefully the board might have writing on it to indicate the area where the faulty IC is.

Where on the Kenwood KR-V5580 do I connect a sub woofer

Wherever the unidentified subwoofer's manual recommends. As there are no volume-controlled pre-amp outputs it would have to be a model that accepts full-range speaker level input if you want to control its volume locally.

I have a kenwood kr-4600 stereo amplifier. On the back are two "jumpers" labeled "adapter". There is one for the left and one for the right. Also on both is IN and OUT. There is a...

They're for inserting any permanently-active analog stereo audio processor like an EQ in between the preamp section and the amp section. Unlike a tape Monitor loop, the output is AFTER tone and volume controls. Owners of Bose 901's would use that connection, for example, because the Active EQ is intended only for the speakers.

Some where there is a button to switch between a powered AMP and a Nonpowered AMP. Can you Tell me Where to Do that??

I might need some clarification on your question and what you are needing this receiver to do . But let me take a shot at this. Your amp has a powered output via the speaker terminals and a preamp output via your record output rca jack or any other rca jacks label preamp out or preout. I is no switch to turn your power amp on while leaving your preamp on, but you can switch the speaker a and or b switch off if you like. If you are refering to a powered subwoofer set up you would connect this to your preamp subwoofer out jack then very the level with the subwoffers volume control. You might need more detail in your question if this is not what your looking for.

Sound problem

Try cleaning the volume control with an electronics switch cleaner spray. If that does not resolve the problem and it seems to happen at low volumes more than load volumes, then the output relay needs to be replaced. Keep us posted. Dan

I have a record player and d0nt know how to set it up. it is a kenwood kd 38r

Hi ipspencer

First, do you have an amp that has a built in phono preamp. You can determine this from the front panel, there being a Phono input to select. If not,then you will need to get a preamp or you will not get any decent sound from the deck. You can get phono preamps online from here

If you need any more help, or info on how to set it up, just give me a hoy.

Marantz AC 500U


Sorry for the delay in getting back to you, you have an odd problem happening there, the pre-amp being the common denominator to the syptoms. Perhaps you could try reducing the attenuators to say 60% and retry at the same levels you used to use at the preamp. It is unlikely that there is a fault occurring that would increase the output of the preamp, more likely to be a DC component getting through. It could also be possible that the amps if all the same make and model have through over the period of installation developed the same fault.
There will have to be a common contributor to the symptoms. It is not uncommon for the same problem to affect a particular model at the same point of its life. Best approach and easiest to fault find it would be to change out the preamp with something similer to test the system and see what happens. At least tyouy will know where to start looking. Hope I have been able to help you, still happy to discuss it further. In the Free section our only reward is a FixYa ratings. Cheers

How can i find a remote that will control the volume on my Kenwood KA-127 amp?

Any universal remote capable of controlling a stereo should be able to control the volume, power, and muting. Beyond that my experience is that hitting random buttons will sometimes get other functions, eg. the "2-/12" button on my universal remote changes it to CD mode :/ You just need to find the codes for Kenwood in the instructions or online, and try all of them.
Sorry I'm a few years late, but I hope this will help anyone else with this problem.
