    I have the same problem, only the sound just suddenly shuts off and the power light blinks rapidly. I shut off and on, and the speakers I think are blasting are shuts off immediately. I have to quickly turn the volume down, but I never had raised the volume to begin with!

    I have the same problem with it shutting off when a loud sound is trying to be produced (such as an explosion, etc). I found a loose speaker wire that may have been crossing, and fixed that problem. For the last 2 days it seems to be working fine, but I don't know if it is completely solved yet.

    Kenwood amps always have this same issue and its crazy what it really is. Here it is , their is a led inside of the volume dial, the posts of the led are twisting within the dial and making contact right about when the volume is all the way up and shorting the system out.
    I took mine completely apart, took apart the volume dial and just cut the led completely out. Has never cut out since

Thats because you are pushing the amplifier too hard. Its going into protect, or it cannot supply the power so it cuts off. 400 watts is too much for it to handle, you are really pushing the amp, and it can blow the amp. Get some speakers that match the impeadance, and match somewhere around the amp specs

No, take the battery out and bring it to an auto part store and they can test it.

Make sure none of the wires are touching each other. (the speaker wires). It grounds out the system and causes the system to shut off.

Kenwood vr606 reciever shutting off subwoofer and centre speaker simultaneously after few minutes/seconds of powering on. WHat's the cause?


The receiver's out put sections are grouped in pairs. Front left and right in one output, rear left and right in second output, and center channel and sub output on the third. Sounds like a semiconductor or semiconductors have gone bad in the center & sub output.

Kenwood VR-410 Reciever cuts out at high volume


Very possibly a problem with overdriving the speakers and the breaker inside the receiver is "popping" in order to protect the outputs from being fried. check the ohm rating of the receiver to the speakers and lok for damage to any of your speaker wires. also make sure the wires are not crossed or touching in the back connections to the equiptment.

Kenwood VR-507 Now only get sound from 1 front speaker. all other speakers have stopped. Have not changed anything.


PROCESS OF ELIMINATION: connect each of the other speaker in the working to check to see if the wires and other speakers are working. If all speaker play when connected to the working channel check all other cables and connections....use the tuner as an working source to test. If that doesn't help then you may have an bad channel in your amp and may need to be repaired.

I need the connection wires!


This uses regular speaker wire. Go to Best Buy, Radio Shack, or any electronics store and ask for speaker wire.

Kenwood VR-405


Hi changeman5 Have you tried to do a full reset on the unit. Disconnect from the wall for 24 hrs. Then try again. If the problem persists, it may have power supply issues, or a DC offset problem shutting it down. If you are game, I could talk you through some more diagnostics...

No sound from my VR-507


My Kenwood1.gif VR-507 had been working great. I hadn't changed anything. I hadn't even moved it. It just suddenly stopped producing sound. It didn't just stop while it was on. I had turned it off and when I turned it back on, nothing. I tried running the speaker setup to see if it would output pink noise, I could hear the test sound, but I couldn't hear any audio from the TV or DVD player..

Help. :-(

Shuts down at high volume


If you have your reciever in an entertainment center that is enclosed or a tight fit for the reciever you need to remove it and put it on top of the center. I have a VR407 and it was doing the same thing. This keeps your unit much cooler and the overheat relay will not turn it off. also I found it much easier to add or wire components much easier.
