Question about Kenwood 107VR
I've had my surround reciever around 8 years and for some reason when i push the on button it will turn on for a few seconds then it will turn right back off.when it is off the stand by light flashes on and off.it just wont turn on.is it in some kind of locked mode or something?
Not a locked mode, your receiver is in the protect mode.
Try disconnecting the speakers and see if it turns on and stays on. If it does, yu have a bad speaker connected. Then you need to start connecting speakers one at a time, turning the unit off to plug a speaker in and then turn it back on after the next speaker is plugged in. When you get to the time when it goes back into protect, the last speaker you plugged in is bad. Take it in to be checked and fixed if possible.
If the unit goes into protect with all speakers disconnected you have a problem with the receiver. Most of the time it will be the amplifier circuit, sometimes other problems. In any case, it will need to be serviced by a professional technician. Sometimes these problems can be fixed for as little as $65 if it is very minor. In more severe cases it could go up to $200, it just depends on what the exact problem is and what kind of rated the service center charges. I have seen these type of receivers sold on ebay for as little as $75 used. That may not be a bad option, because you should be able to use your speakers with most any other type of stereo receiver.
If you need any more help or advise on what you should do with the receiver I will be happy to assist you. If this information was helpful to you a rating of "FixYA" would be appreciated.
