Question about Kenwood KR-A5080 Receiver
My receiver has worked well for years (i've owned it for 10 years). We were watching a movie and accidentally hit the "direct" button. All of a sudden the recevier's standby mode when on and the receiver started automatically shutting itself down; first after 5 minutes, and now autmatically right after it turns on. We tried unplugging the unit from all the components, then plugging it back in, but it did not solve the problem. Is my receiver dead or is it easy to fix? i can't find my manual anywhere.
After 10 years of use probably best to replace with a new unit. Most will be hard to find exactly wich little bit is broke.

Overheating is likely your root cause. Move the unit to make sure it is getting enough air around it and remove anything that you have sitting on top of it ESPECIALLY any device that produces heat of it's own such as your CD player. If that does not solve the problem, listen at a lower volume and/or defeat any equalization or bass enhancement circuitry.
