Kenwood KRF-V7050 remote control problem

Hi all, I have a weird situation on my Kenwood A/V receiver. It seems that when my receiver is turned off for a while, the remote can't operate it (it's in stand-by mode), but if I manually turn on the receiver, then after a while (10-15 min.) the receiver seems to respond to the remote. I've already checked that the remote is outputing infra signal from it's led, and it does. I've even tried a universal remote control with no help. Ideas anyone? I turn on my receiver with my remote (RCR0720) and within a few minutes, my receiver won't respond to my remote when I want to change the volume. Sometimes my receiver will be ok for an hour or 2, but at some point, it won't respond to my remote controller. I have made sure nothing is blocking the air vents of the receiver and I have changed batteries in the reomote; this hasn't changed anything. When I first bought this surround system this was not a problem until after a couple of years. What to do?

Depending on the receiver type, there may be a computer type battery on the circuit board for the receiver's uPC. In some models, they use a gold leaf capacitor that is in the range of about 0.5 Farads or so. This is to store the active memory for the receiver. If the battery or the cap is defective and the temporary memory is lost, then the uPC must re-initialize and
restore the system's temporary memory before it can function again.
If the battery, or the cap (depending on the receiver) is in good condition, then your fault is most likely a component that has become temperature sensitive. After the set has warmed up, the associated function starts to operate again.

    There might also be some bad solder contacts at the IR receiver on the front panel.

HI,

There are two possible reasons.1) It is the senser on the receiver which can be faulty.2)Or the remote circuit is faulty.
If the IR receiver is defective you will have to get it repaired.

Goodluck,

U don't. If you do not have enough inputs you can always buy devices that turn one input into various ones for situations such as yours. Some even are remote controlled.

Why guess? Get the manual out and actually look at the settings to see if they're out in space somewhere. If you don't try to understand what went wrong you will repeat it.

Hi William
Assuming that you have tried changing the batteries in the remote (and put the batteries in the right way round) then the chances are that your remote control unit has failed.
Original Kenwood remotes can be bought here http://kenwoodremote.com/

Universal remote controls are widely available in electrical stores and on the internet. You will need to find the right set up code - you should be able to find the code on the same site.

Kenwood receivers recently have a commonly known problem with its receiving IR diode within the receiver, to fix this you will have to re-solder the connection on the receiver panel within the faceplate of your kenwood receiver.

Instructions to fix it are at the following link if you are willing to open up your receiver and repair it. lots of people have reported this fix as successful so it is widely believed to be a design flaw in the VR line-up of receivers as it has occured in all the VR families so far.

good luck.

Remote works intermittently


Hi!

Unfortuntately, you and many others have this problem. I will point you in the direction of two "fixes" I have found.

Fix 1 is from Kenwood themselves, per the following quote:first try replacing the batteries if you haven't already. If that doesn't help, try resetting the receiver. Simply unplug the receiver, then press and hold the power button on the receiver while you plug it back in. Turn the unit on, and the display should say 87.50 to confirm the reset. If the remote still does not work, use a digital camera as an eye, face it towards the IR of the remote control. Depress any of the remotes buttons; you should see IR flash each time a button is pressed. If not then the problem is with the remote. If the remote works fine, then the problem is with the receiver. In order to determine the cause of the problem, I suggest you take the defective unit to a Kenwood authorized service center for evaluation. You can find information for authorized service centers in your area by visiting our website at www.kenwoodusa.com.

The second fix involves some very simple soldering, and has been endorsed by many as the solution:

I hope this helps. Good luck and please let me know if this solves your problem!
