Question about Kenwood KAC-9102D Car Audio Amplifier

1 Answer

I hooked up 2 capacitors into my amp and every time I put power to it the amp shuts off and 10 seconds later a red light comes on for 5 seconds and the amp don't turn on, basically it goes into protect mode every time I hook the power up to the amp, pretty sure I have a good ground, and even if I hook it up normally it still goes into protect mode, would it have something to do with the remote wire?

    i would like to know, what and where did you connect the capacitor, or remove it,

    just to test if symptoms still persist and post what you found

    and try turning the unit ON, without the speaker and anything connected on the INPUTS

    except the power cables of course.

    Battery to capacitor, from that capacitor to the other capacitor, then into the amp. Ground is the same. - from the frame to the capacitor to the other capacitor, amp is grounded to the same spot as the capacitor not connected to the capacitors only at where its mounted to the frame

    it doesn't have to do with your remote wire, but it does on the Impedance of your speaker

    have you tried turning it ON , with no input and no speaker, and see if protect still appear.

Well, I have no idea why you would have two capacitors on a 500 watt amp but, did you charge the capacitors? Have you tried the amp without the capacitors? What size power wire are you using?

    I'm running 8 gauge wiring, and I did try to hook it back up without the capacitors and it does the same thing, the amp is running 1400 watts. I'm pretty sure anyways, that's what it says on the amp anyways I have both ground wires hooked up at the same spot would that make a difference?

Panasonic th-50pz800u shuts down and i can not turn back on, red light flashing 2 times, sometimes 10 times

Good day!!!


That problem is usually cause of faulty capacitors on the power supply board..

Just follow this instruction to fix your TV..

1. Open the back cover of your TV.
2. Look at the power supply board..Its normally connected to the power cord..
3. After that,,try to look at the actual image of capacitors if it is bulged on the top so that you can easily determine the bad capacitors..
4. After that,,try to replaced the bad capacitors using soldering iron and soldering lead..replaced the capacitors only with the same type ratings and value..
5. Some of the capacitors not bulged so its better if have a capacitance meter

Amp turns off after about 5-10 minutes of use for a few seconds

One of two things...Amp is going into overload protection (should be indicated by a light on the amp), or you have insufficient power going to the amp....if this is the problem, try a 2 farad capacitor on the input power line to the amp.

Protection Light Comes on

Sounds like you have an ohm problem, Tryy hooking the positive from one speaker to the negative on the other speaker. Then hook the negative from the first speaker to the negative on your amp and the positive from the second to the positive on the amp this will drop your ohm load and the amp should stop going into protection.

Power to Amp but no lights and does not switch on

(1)When the unit is switched on the relay clicks in,but no sign of life, and then five seconds later the second relay clicks on/off don't know which. This symptom is DC outputted to speaker terminals. Check any DC at power amp stage output.(2)Must have blown up.
Positive. If Caps blew, your amp shutted itself down within 5 seconds due to + & - power supply creating an unbalanced +B & - B voltage not allowing your amp to turn on.

Picture & sound shuts off

I had a similar problem with my Phillips 42 in. LCD HD TV.

Here's the problem. The Power Supply Board. I opened my TV up(warranty was up of course) and found several bad capacitors. Phillips and several other companies were sold capacitors that although were highly rated failed within 5 years because of a lack of preservatives. All sorts of electronic equipment is now being effected due to these defective capacitors.
Solutions?
1. Take it in and have it fixed
2. Open it up, check the board for faulty capacitors(bulged or leaking) Buy a new Power supply board and install it.
3. Remove PSB, remove faulty capacitors and replace with compatible new ones.

Hope this helps
