Hello,

This could be over heating on the kenwood sovereign vr-5700, and when this happens, it mute itself and stop working, after it as cool down, it works again. I will advice you place the device in a well ventilated location or get a standby fan for and see if it will mute itself again while working.

Take care.

Alot of times what happens is you have a device that is gounding to the receiver and causing a charge to build up on the mainboard for the receiver. After the charge reaches a certain point it is enough to engage the power button turning off the unit.

Note with your modern electronics they work on contact switches. You make the circuit to turn on the device and again to turn it off.

So as a test you my try disconnecting all devices and reconnecting them one a time over a time period to see which one starts to cause the problem. Also if you have all the devices unplugged and the unit still turns off then the problem is with the receiver its self.

Let me know how things go

I have a Kenwood vr 5700 and while i have it playing it will go into the phono mode and i have to reset it .Any idea of why its doing this?


I'd suspect an other remote or a spurious random infrared source is doing it. Block the infrared eye on the receiver and see if that makes it stop. Then look for the source of the command.

I have a kenwood k-stat home receiver and it is stuck on mute. i dont have a remote with it and was wondering what button to push where it will get off mute.


hello, if you dont have the user manual you can get from this link
http://www.retrevo.com/support/Kenwood-VR-407-Receivers-manual/id/480ag200/t/2/
according to the manual i think you have turned of speakers, if so you can turn them on again.
as the users manual says it should be the 11th button group, you find this pair of buttons in the left side next to the power botton, you might have turned off speakers.

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.

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.

Remote control not working...


I'm not sure of the exact fix, but when these components were assembled a few of the connections involving the remote sensor were not saudered. An easy fix if you know where to look.
