    Very difficult to get to the soldered connection pins on the socket in the PC board, but the solder looks sound. Tried wiggling the cable in the socket without any effect.

    I may have to give up.

    No antenna power output connection on unit. I think the fault is with the antenna socket but I am unable to get in to the CB to fix it.

Some radios have an output for a power antenna, Turn the radio on and the antenna goes up. If a radio had such a signal,couldn't it power the antenna amplifier?

Hope that helps.............

There could be a problem with the port the aerial is plugging into, what you can do is examine the ports for defects ,
1.) open it up
2.) look at the port, there should be solder holding it in place as well as solder holting the connection pins in place.
3.) resolder the pins
4.) turn it back on taking care not to touch the circutis
5.) gently plug back in the antenna and shake it slightly to ensure iys working.
6.) turn it of disconect it and reassemble it.

That should work if not let us know and we can be of further assistance. Do Not Rate Until YOu Are satisfied with your experts Responce or the Problem has been resolved

When on FM tuner, stereo stops playing after a few minutes


Right then sounds like the connection from the aerial lead into the receiver - check out the socket where the aerial plugs into!

Is it loose at all or could there be a bad connection inside the unit.
Get the cover OFF and investigate yourself before you rush down to that very friendly repair man along the street.

My Kenwood Radio (New) for my boat doesn't tune properly on FM. For example, it only tunes to 94,1 or 94,3 but not to 94,2 It is just ,1 digit off the frequency on most stations. Tried it on manua


Hi there,

Kenwood receivers are usually tuned for their intended destination country, hence the frequency "stepping" of the tuners may differ between countries.

Was this receiver originally intended for your country's frequency? If yes, then contact Kenwood customer service for further advice.

If not, contact your local Kenwood service agent and ask whether the frequency stepping can be reprogrammed.

Kenwood RV7030 audio-video stereo has static without antenna


OK I am going to suggest two aerials for you. I would also NOT use the old cable as it will cause a lot of problems. It is best to replace it with the stuff they use for satellite dishes (see image).
The FM aerial will pick up signals from all sides. The TV aerial should give high quality signals and output for at least 5 sets.

My battery was disconnected for a new starter motor to be fitted - now it won't tune in. CD works but radio just hisses? I've checked aerial connections which seem OK. Radio lights up and looks like it...


Somehow your antenna has become disconnected. Check the back of the stereo and look at the ANT connection. Remove it and test continuity from the center to the outside antenna. Chassis is ground and most likely will not have a problem.

I have a Kenwood KR-A4010 Am/Fm Stereo Receiver. Every five seconds the sound fades in and out. Can anyone find a solution to this problem?


Something in the unit is smoked and potentially dangerous. Get that puppy down to a repair shop. Don't leave it unattended if you turn it on. Got a fire extinguisher handy?

Fitting a Kenwood car stereo to a 2003 Toyota Hilux ute, all works well until aerial lead plugged in, then immediately the fuse blows that feeds park lights, dash lights, instruments etc. Car stereo works...


The vehicle chassis ground or negative is opposite to the stereo. The aerial is vehicle chassis ground (earth), when touched to stereo results in direct short. If the Hilux is positive ( + ) chassis (earth) and the stereo is negaitive ( - ) ground, there is the short. If this is the problem, either replace with a compatable stereo or compatable vehicle.

No Sound - boat stereo


Assuming that the four speakers are connected to the amplifier, then the amp is the most likely problem component. Does the amplifier show a power light when the system is turned on? Note that there is probably another fuse in the amplifier power wire, near the battery.
