Kenwood Receiver KR-V127R - left channel not working

The left channel on my Kenwood receiver (KR-V127R, ca 1989) goes out after a few minutes after turning on. There is a "humming" noise, but no sound/music from the speaker. It is not a problem with the speaker. Neither the "A" nor "B" channel will work for the left side after it goes out. After it is turned off awhile (30 minutes to an hour) it will come back on, but only for a few minutes. Is there some circuit protection device that it tripping? Any suggestions to correct this problem are appreciated.

Thanks - sm

Select an input that is not connected, for example select CD with no cables going to the CD input on the backside. Will you then hear equal humming on both channels? If so, the amp stage is ok,
and the problem lies in the signal level circuitry.
Open the cover and use a plastic (insulated) stick to touch suspectible cables and components. When the sound returns, you've found the cause. Resolder or reseat the component/cable/card.
Use the insulated stick, NOT your fingers!

How to hook up a pioneer 7 band gr 470 equalizer to a Kenwood kr-v6030 receiver


Connect one pair of RCA cables between the receiver and equalizer. Connect one pair of cables to the pre-amp output channels on the receiver and the other end of the cable to the left and right channel inputs on the equalizer. You will usually find these channels on the rear of the equalizer.

Where are the fuses on a KR-V127R receiver?


The fuses are inside the unit. Open it up and they will be quite visible near the power cord.

A blown fuse is signs of something wrong BTW.


Good luck

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?
