Question about Kenwood KR-V8080 Receiver
My receiver quit working when one of the speaker wire tips brushed across one of the receiver's power cord prongs while it ( the receiver)was plugged into the 110v outlet. This happened when I was messing around with the cords and cables behind my entertainment center, and the power cord was not pushed in all of the way. Since that time, the "Main Power" on/off switch powers up okay and the power light is on, however when I push in the "Remote Power" button the unit turns on for 1 second and then shuts down. After this the "Main Power" light flashes on and off. There os also a click simultanious to the unit shutting off that is coming from a small blue plastic box that is near the fuse in the back of the unit. Can you give advise as to what is wrong? The fuse appears to be okay.
If you sent 110v down the speaker wires & into the amp you most likely have damaged the audio outputs or the output ic. Look for a big aluminum heatsing & on one side you may find 1 or 2 ic's or numerous transistors, the ic's are hard to check, the transistors are easier to check, if transistors replace in pairs. also check for burnt /open resistors near outputs
