    Thanks for trying I believe the unit had a power surge and has damaged the main circuit board that powers the instrument panel so I have been told, but thankyou very much for your assistance thinking of scraping it. Rodney

Hi Rodney,

Have a look at the following. 1. Check your supply to the frnt panel. You ma have some power there but also look for a Resistor that will mesure open, and look for a Reulator. This will be fitted to a heatsink, not a big one though. If there is no heatsink look for the transistor on the main heatsink starting with la78XX. The last 2 dig should give you the power it is letting through. for expl: LA7812 will be a 12V+ regulator. A LA7912 will be a 12V- regulator. If nothing is found on the front panel check for this on the main bord. Once you get this right you will see that your fron panel will switch on and the controler will also switch.

Now for your heatsink that is still warming up. Disconnect your power to the main Transistors. You can do this by desoldering all resistors that is going to all the transistors. Your supply is going hi and your transistors is getting hot.

I know all the above is much but try it.

Have you tried the "Simulated" surround setting?

If you don't get sound in "Simulated" mode then you have probably lost the surround channels.

If you do get sound then your "Media"
is not recorded with a surround "Track". or the surround "Processor" may have issues that need to go to the repair shop.

I have Kenwood AV Receiver KRF-V5030D how can I connect EQ??? Has I am problems getting it to work

Any digital AVR can only support external analog sound processing gear (eq, tape decks, etc) for analog sources. As soon as a Tape Loop is activated any digital source will be disabled. Nature of the beast.

I have been using my Kenwood KRF-V7030D amplifier up until now without any problems... But now It simply wont turn on... There is power going to the unit as the red led lights up when the power cord is...

since the light is on there is the power going in but still you are not able to make it on so it have got the problem of internal mechanical problem, if atall it were the software problem then you could simply rebooted and could have got it in normal mode.
best thing to do is call some hardware expert and get it repaired and it will be cheap and relible too.
good luck

Hi i have a krf-v5030d and i am having trouble woking out how to connect it to my panasonic 37'' plasma th37px70b and my sky plus box can you help me please .thanks john

Hi John,

I have the same amplifier, a Sky + HD box, an LCD TV an surround speakers. We wont go into the Wii, PS3 and PC also hooked up. Essentially the best way to go (whatever you connect up) is to split the video and audio signals.

Sky: The Sky box has an audio outputs (left and right channel) found at the back of the box. You get some twin audio cables, plug into the back of the Sky box and the other end into the Kenwood Amp (for example we use Video 1). This means that the sound from Sky can be found on Video 1 on the Amp.

You take the video signal (picture) from Sky using a SCART cable and put into the back of your panasonic TV. This does mean that you can watch a picture without the sound and listen without a picture. The Amp remote controls the sound, the Sky / TV remote controls the picture.

You may need to tinker with some settings on the Amp, for example on the front of the Amp you will find a source button, toggle through the 3 or 4 options to give you the right sound. But essentially that should be it. The same process is used for any other things you want to add, like a DVD player, a games console and so on.

Hope this helps.

Regards, Mohammed

Kenwood control amp KC-206

Sounds like a low voltage to the front panel as the indicators are there such as control window illumination is dim and the remote does not function.
The remote sends an invisible signal to a detector just behind the front panel and if the signal from the remote is nice and strong from your new batteries in the remote then it must be the panel electronics.

I have found that if you clean the output panel of the remote with a damp cloth and the same to the front panel glass you may be lucky. Just Damp please not dripping in water!!!!!

If ypu keep the amplifier system very clean then this wont be the problem...But this action has worked on TV's with remotes...

If this doesnt work then a service is quick fix..
