hAVE A KENWOOD RV-6000. IT KEEP TURNING ITSELF OFF CONTINUOUSLY FOR A WHILE WHEN YOU FIRST GO TO USE IT AND THEN EVENTUALLY STAYS ON. IT DOESN'T MAKE ANY DIFFERENCE WHICH INPUT YOU ARE USING. ITS NOT THE APS AS THAT IS OFF
JUST KEEP TURNING IT BACK ON UNTIL IT EVENTUALLY STAYS ON
Hello - maybe I can help. Can you please tell me if you have done a reset as of yet? This will erase settings, so you may want to write down and custom settings if you can keep the unit on long enough for the display read.Also, does the "protection" come on, or does the unit simply shut completely off? If you want to try the reset (if it DOES go into "protection" this will NOT cure the problem most likely and is a seperate issue. If you want to try the reset, hold in the POWER key while un plugging the unit, and keep holding the button "in" while re plugging the unit in again. Please advise and thank you for your time.

Hello. My name is XXXXX XXXXX X can assist you. I use to be a factory service center for Kenwood. I don't believe your receiver is going into protection. If it were, it more than likely would not come on, and stay on when it's hot. This is exactly opposite of what the receiver is doing. Generally, when they get hot, is when it would normally go into protection, not the other way around. I think you have a cold solder connection, that with heat, is expanding and making the connection. When it's cold, it contracts, causing the connection to shrink and loose contact with the foil it's supposed to be soldered to.The manufactures, in an attempt to go "Green", have gone to non-leaded solder, which does not flow very well. Most of the solder connections, just as soon as they are made, already look bad. The non-leaded solder cools too quickly, and does not have the time to fully engulf the connection around it. Eventually, the solder cracks, and looses the connection. With the leaded solder, it stays molten longer, and has ample time to fully surround the part lead, and lasts longer. It's the price we pay, for cleaning up the planet. Eventually, they will improve the solder, as I, nor any other expert, would think of using non-leaded, in it's preset formula.I hope this answers your question. If you would, please take a moment to rate my answer. A rating of 3-5, will insure that I am compensated for my time and expertise.Thank you,Dave
