Question about Kenwood Audio Players & Recorders
It is going into the protect mode. Unplug all speakers and try again. If it turns on you have a bad speaker.
Plug in one speaker at a time turing the unit off in between each speaker and when it goes into protect again you know the last speaker plugged in is the bad one.
If the receiver still goes into protect with no speakers connected, you have an internal amplifier problem. This is something that should be checked by a service center. This particular model is not an easy one to disassemble and troubleshoot.
The sound you hear that sounds like a circuit breaker is actually a relay. It makes a clicking sound when turned on or off. That relay is functioning properly. It supplies the A/C voltage to the main power transformer.
Sometimes when the display is not lighting up at all and the unit is displaying all the symtoms your has, the power transformer is at fault. If you have a voltage meter or a ohm meter (multimeters have both) I can guide you thru the process of determaining if the transformer is good or not. That is an easy enough process for most people.
