Question about Kenwood VR-209 Receiver

1 Answer

Kenwood VR-209 Still does not work after the speakers are unplugged.

I have a Kenwood VR-209 that comes on then it shuts off after about 2 seconds. I do not have anything plugged into it like speakers or cd players. Please advise. After is turns off the power light starts to blink. The speakers are not plugged in. And It still does the same thing. I think the Power Transformer is blown. Any idea where I can get a Power Transformer at?

    I try unhooking just the components, that didn't help. Then I unplugged all the speakers. That didn't help. Finally, I took the amp and plugged it into another outlet. That didn't work. I don't know what else to try.

I have a VR205 with the same problem. I can make it stay on by doing this: as soon as the display lights up turn off the power and then turn it back on quickly. Do this 3 or 4 times. Mine usually stays on after this....the relays latch and all is well I suspect one of the step-start relays as I have checked everything else out and all is in order and the receiver works fine. I would love to find a shop manual for this series of receivers. Anyone know where such an animal exists?

Do you mean KENWOOD VR-209?

Page 21 descriebs the microprocessor reset for USA & Canada; or other countries.



Generally speaking, an amp protects itself from heat, shorts, overloads and operator exuberance by refusing to turn on or stay on.


Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.


You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.


If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.


If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.

Kenwood VR-509 Receiver won't power up...


Check all your speaker wires for shorts, especially behind the amp, doesn't take much for something to throw a spanner in the works, like when cleaning house and moving stuff around.

Kenwood VR-209 turns off after 20 minutes


Overheating is likely your root cause. Move the unit to make sure it is getting enough air around it and remove anything that you have sitting on top of it ESPECIALLY any device that produces heat of it's own such as your CD player. If that does not solve the problem, listen at a lower volume and/or defeat any equalization or bass enhancement circuitry.

Turns on then shuts off like it has a bad fuse


HI...

Check to see that all the speakers are firmly connected at BOTH ends.
Also,if the receiver has speaker select switches, see if turning off the speakers allows it to stay on.

Let me know , Thanks

there's a good chance it's the receiver and not the remote. Just fixed mine this afternoon with help from this blog.
