SOURCE: Volume turned up, kenwood shuts off briefly...

If this is in a boat, I would check the amp unit for moisture damage, as a marine items is a specially built units that fends off water as well as moisture damage exposture. it does not mater if the amp is enclosed inside the hual or cabinet. The problem you are encountering is most likely because of a bad main amp unit, as if you disconnect the speakers and turn uo the unit, and it still goes into protection or shutdown mode, something is wrong with the amp. Like I said before, the fault is most likely due to water damage or moisture damage to the main printed circuit board. Good Luck.

SOURCE: Right side speakers don't work

if you are using RCAs as inputs to your amp.Swap the R to L @ RCAs to see if its comming in okay from radio.If both RCAs have audio then amp is bad ,If amp has any type of switches , move swithces to see if it comes back .Also if both RCAs inputs have audio .Move the RCAs when connected on amp to see if amp has bad connection in board to RCA jacks..If audio comes back on bad side when jack is moves .Then you have bad solder joints on board..If not then you must have bad outputs on amp..

Apparently it won't let me log in. Anyhow... I'm pushing voltage. The light is flashing, not flickering. How can I replace the transistors?

SOURCE: Denon AVR-3802 Front Left and Centre channel not working right

I work at an authorized Denon service center and have repaired lots of Denon receivers including this model. So bare with me, and trust that I really do know what I am talking about.

The first thing you need to do is find out if those two speakers may be at fault. You can do it very easy by disconnecting them and connect two of the known good speakers into the channels that the bad sound is coming from and then connect the suspected bad speakers in where those good speakers were connected to.

If the same speakers still sound bad, you know that you have a couple of bad speakers. I think that it is likely that the speakers are OK, but it is a good idea to make sure.

If the sound from the suspected bad channels is now still bad with the two good speakers, you have an internal amplifier problem or you have a problem on the digital board.

For your sake, I hope it is the amplifier that is giving you this problem, if it is, that can be fixed by a good audio technician.

If the problem is the digital board, you may be in for some real headaches. Not that many audio techs are very good at troubleshooting a digital board, its not their fault, it is just a very difficult job.

In either case, it will need to be looked at by a qualified technician.

I hesitate to tell you this, but the problem sounds like a digital board problem. In some rare cases, a technician with excellent soldering skills can reflow a couple if the memory IC's on the digital board and restore proper operation. If the technician is top notch and isolates the problem to a specific IC on the digital board, they can replace that IC and you are good to go.
But in most cases, the technician will not even bother trying to troubleshoot the digital board because it can take hours of troubleshooting, and just order the board if it is available. Most of them are available from Denon, but they are very expensive. Normally the part alone is $200 to $300 and I have seen many times where it takes months to get it.

You can also send it directly to Denon's factory service center and that will get your unit back much quicker. They have direct access to the boards, where-as the authorized service center must order it thru one of the Denon parts distributors and they do not always have them in stock. so you end up waiting for a long time.

If you need to send it to the Denon factory service, let me know and I will email you a return authorization form, this must be faxed or emialed to Denon with the proper information and then they will fax or email it back to you with the RA number which must be written on the outside of the box before shipping it to them.

I hope that this information wasn't to overwhelming, but if you found it helpful a good rating would really be appreciated. It helps to keep the experts on FixYa motivated and willing to answer the questions people have even it the answer is not very good news.
I received an "inappropriate" rating from somebody who just wasn't happy with the truth, and most people never even bother to rate our answers. But that's another whole subject.

let me know if you need more help.

only using one of the channels for audio and having the rest of the amp wired up as normal should work fine. for example just use the right channel and leave the left unwired.

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 KA-76 amp. Left channel distorts and unit overheats then shuts down when volume is turned up. Headphones are not affected.


what happens if you reconnect left and right speakers? Are these problems of the unit or of the speakers/wires?

No sound on right speaker channels


If the receiver has not been used for some time, the symptom you describe may mean that switch contacts have become corroded or tarnished from lack of use

I have a Yamaha RX-V2092 with a 7 speaker set up. Purchased new. Everything has worked great until recently. Now the center channel speaker, left front effect speaker & left main speaker short off...


It seems that the main sound processor comes into an error and so seems a fault on the board. Since checking for a component level solution is very tricky as the access is not friendly, what could be done initially is to remove and reset the boards, check for faulty connectors that seems to vibrate and bring in these faults. Check the solde joints of the connector pins on the board. Check and solder the processor IC and the allied circuits. If the fault seems to disappear when the set heats up then you must check using a magnifier.Check the solder on the audio driver outputs of the center, main , front and rear are clean.
If not refer and proceed with consensus as a false move can cripple the set.

I have a Kenwood 106vr receiver. almost right after the warranty expired whenever I'd crank some power through it it would switch off with only the stand by light flashing. i put the receiver in storage...


It sounds like you blew it up. Ten years of sitting didn't heal it.

Does it come up with NO speakers attached? If not, it's cooked. Sorry.

If it does come up you need to isolate the short being presented by the speaker(s).

For the future, I'd take it easy on the volume and take a hint from its reactions. An audio device only has so many self-protecting emergency shut down cycles in it.

I have a vintage Kenwood amplifier (two channel rear speakers, 4 channel front / satellite) with Dolby Surround. It is circa '98 or so. I just moved it and now the right channel of the rear speakers seems...


I can't provide specifics without the model number, but ingeneral, the amp section for the rear speaker could be defective or the output relay could be the problem. Without knowing the deisng, I can not say for sure. Typically, the units of that vintage, use ICs for the surround amps. Some use a single IC for both channels, some uise 1 per channel. If you can update this with the model number, I can get you more specifics and perhaps a repair cost estimate.

Thanks,
Dan

Two amp


I don't know why you'd set the Peavey to 2 ohm to drive 8 ohm speakers??? My other thought is... I wonder if the phase is correct. try reversing one of the speaker wires Left or right side.

Speakers inop. on kenwood reciever


The speaker protection circuit sounds to be engaged. This protects you speakers form damage if a fault condition occurs inside the amp. Generally speaking, unless you have good experience at fault finding electronics, then this may be a job for a repair guy. If you want to know more about diagnosing the problem, get back to me here. Good luck :)

Receiver Shutoff


That may be a clue to your shutdown problem. Disconnect that speaker and see if the unit still shuts down. If it does not, then there is a problem with this speaker,or the wiring going to this speaker. If the unit still shuts down, disconnect each speaker at a time to see where the problem is. If none of the speakers seem to cause the shutdown problem, there is na major fauly in the amp circuit, so the amp will need serviceing or replacement. Good Luck
