View Full Version : What could be wrong with this receiver?

A few weeks ago, it just stopped playing music through any input.

The unit was on and you could change, but somewhere along the line from the audio output of the tv to the receiver to the speakers, it stopped.

Its an old Kenwood, about 15 years.

I did a direct swap with my 2 channel HK and that works fine.

I opened up the kenwood and couldnt see anything blown or burn marks, but I noticed one of the caps was buldging. Could that be it or could it be something else?

I had a mobo go bad from bad electrolytics...that could definitely be a possibility.

Could always replace it and see if it works :)

Eh Im not really that concerned.

Parents get my receiver, they give me some cash to get a new one as "payment" for using mine.

Now I can get a nice 7 channel.
