Question about Universal Remote Control Activity Based Universal Learning Remote
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 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.
