I went to my friend he ask for my help if i can repair his kenwood model RX-39 audio system. I turn on the power then it seems the unit have no problem but after 3 seconds the unit turn off and the message appear on the display ( Protect )..I noticed after repeatedly turn on i hear a clicking sound inside the unit before the unit turn off..I plan to open it by next week so that i can first gather informations before i try to repair it.

By the way... My friend told me that sometimes he can used the unit for a couple of months when he will not used the unit for a weeks then after the unit will fail again then he will not used the unit for a weeks..... it seems that the unit is working if had taken a rest

Check the internal battery.

If you do not use it for a long time it looses charge.

Hope this helps you.

The Clicking sound could be the Speaker protection Relay, that switches on after the Amplifier and other stages have stabilised.
Check the speaker cable for loose/ cut connection. Some times the wire has come off and their will be over load. The Protection " ckt will switch off the System to prevent damage.
Possible that the speaker itself is damaged.

Hi Guys…

I just came to my friend place yesterday to repair his audio system with full of knowledge thru the tips I gathered to all of you guys ( Checked for cracked solder joint, speaker wiring, failing capacitors in the protect circuit... I confirmed that when I checked his audio before theres no speakers connected so I plug the cord on the outlet and turn it on again same as before the unit shut off after 2 to 3 sec, I cleaned the connector by tipping using my finger to cleaned the connector outlet before we connect the speakers on the unit then we turn it on the unit does not shut off so we play a cd to test its working! But we noticed that when we turn up the volume the unit shut off( protect) so we try it again to know what level of volume the unit shut off its seems that the unit seems working if only set below 35 ( note. Max volume 60 ). After that we dismantle the unit to check the components of power supply hoping to find fail components by visual check up then and again slap a little the connector pin of the speaker to cleaned hoping to remove the one that causing the shut off if any . After we assemble the unit we connect the speakers and turn it on its working so we decide to turn up the volume above 35 the does not shut so we adjust it to 40,45 and 50 the unit does not shut off. Im happy that I successfully fixed his unit. But Im confused what really the caused why that unit behave like that?????? and How I repaired that ,I only disassemble the unit?????
