Hi, I'm Nathan.
Sorry to hear that you're having trouble with this but I'll do my best to help you.

Expert:  Nathan replied 11 months ago.

Is this a Kenwood VR-510?

Expert:  Nathan replied 11 months ago.

It is imperative that you reply back to me here, on your original question only, please.

Posting new/duplicate questions costs you more and hinders my ability to reply.

Please reply back here on this page when ready.

I'm trying, please give me a moment to reply.

If you are seeing an automated call offer, you may ignore that if not wanted.

I am not spending 26 to get a location of a repair facility of your product
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Will you help me?
Expert:  Nathan replied 11 months ago.

Again, you do not need to. You are seeing an automated ad, ignore it if you don't want that service.

Please, allow me a few moments to respond, every time you send another message I lose what I'm working on and have to start over.

To be clear as well, this is a paid support service, you paid your initial fee, for which I will provide an answer here in the chat format. This is a 3rd party support and information service, this is not a feature provided by kenwood, they do not support this product and would not help you with this.

I am looking for a repair facility near me in liberty lake wa 99019

Thank you for confirming.

The closest repair shop that could work on this (and really the only one within 50 miles) is:
DAC Electronics Repair
4514 North Ella Road(###) ###-####/p>

However, while the issue may be repairable, I would caution you against having it repaired. It just isn't going to be economical to have any repairs done on it. This is a 2002 model receiver which was designed for a service life of 5 years. It has served that life nearly 3 times over at this point, and greatly exceeded any value that could be reasonably expected of it.

A typical repair will be in the $300 range, which is more than enough to buy a brand new model with updated features and a fresh warranty. I can recommend replacement options for you, if you'd prefer.

If you have any other questions, just let me know. Otherwise, please take a moment to rate my service as this is the only way I am credited for my time. Hopefully I have earned 5 Stars but if not please let me know what I can do to ensure you are satisfied. I also invite you to contact me directly with any future support needs at and ask for Nathan.

Thank you, ***** ***** a nice day,
