Kenwood, Very little sound for no reason!!

Hello, I have used and loved my Kenwood KR-V990D for quite some time, with no problems. I am not sure if one of my roomates bumped it or something (not likely because the unit is very secure), but the sound coming out at my comfort level (-35dB) is now non-existant, and in order to hear the speakers at all I have to turn the volume up to the -10db--0db range, which is normally in the region where either my ears or the speakers would break. I never abuse my sound, never crank it up all the way, and have no reason at all to suspect that anything is blown. What is going on? I have checked all connections countless times, and I cannot get the volume back up to the normal level. It is literally as if some protection mode was put up, and when the volume is turned up to maxx (0db), it is only slightly louder than before when -45db would produce the same sound. Thanks in advance to anyone who can solve my problem.

Check all (and I mean ALL) of your front panel buttons. It sounds like someone has pushed the tape monitor button or something like that. Be SURE to turn the volumn down BEFORE you start pushing buttons. Good luck.

Kenwood KR-V8010 receiver. B speakers are not working. A speakers are

If the B speakers on your Kenwood KR-V8010 receiver are not working while the A speakers are working, there are a few things you can check:
  1. Check the speaker connections: Make sure that the B speakers are connected to the receiver properly. Ensure that the speaker wires are connected securely and that the polarity is correct.
  2. Check the speaker selector switch: The Kenwood KR-V8010 has a speaker selector switch that allows you to choose between A speakers, B speakers, or both. Make sure that the switch is set to the B speaker position.
  3. Check the speaker impedance: Make sure that the impedance of the B speakers is compatible with the receiver. The Kenwood KR-V8010 supports speakers with an impedance of 4 to 16 ohms. If the impedance of the B speakers is too low or too high, it can cause issues with the amplifier.
  4. Check the volume level: Make sure that the volume level is not set too low for the B speakers. If the volume level is too low, it may not be noticeable that the B speakers are not working.
  5. Check the output settings: The Kenwood KR-V8010 has a few output settings that can affect the sound output. Make sure that the settings for the B speakers are not muted or turned off.
If none of these steps resolve the issue, there may be a problem with the amplifier or the B speaker output circuit. In this case, it may be necessary to take the receiver to a professional for repair or maintenance.

When i turn on my kenwood kr-v990d it powers up for about 2min then shuts down

It is possible that the amplifier had encountered a fault with a higher current drain which had triggered it to a protection fault condition. The fault can be with your output drivers. Please check for short on the outputs fitted for both the channels. Use a meter after disconnecting to check for short in the drivers. Disconnect the positive and negative voltages to the output and see if the protect changes. Even a fault in the preamp stages that drives in high current into the output can shut the Amplifier. Sometimes this can be a noise which can be a HUM or HISS before the protect works. Faulty capacitors in these circuits also can cause similar issues and needs close observation.You need to confirm and replace the specific stages or outputs. If not there can be issues in the mother board. Maybe the protect circuit by itself is shutting off due to a faulty bias or there is a leak in any voltage/current sensing circuit. Also disconnect the speakers and test, if the amplifier comes out of the protect mode then check for short on the speakers.

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?
