Question about Kenwood VR-715 Receiver
Hello I recently hooked up a record player to my VR-715 and for the life of me I can't get the volume up. I have re-set everything according to the steps in the manual a number of times to no avail. If you crank the volume it stays at a low level. Anyone know why this is not working? Thanks.
Has the VR 715 got a dedicated phono socket? If so use that. If you are using it, you need to check with the instructions to see if it has an inbuilt Magnetic Cartridge Preamp. If it doesn't then you need a to get a pre-amp to hear it.
If the device was previous giving out good sound then either the cartridge has gone or the same pre-amp inside the unit has failed. It will not affect any other function.
To test the cartridge. Remove the connection wires to it remembering where they connect (write it down). Then with the device on. Switched to phono. Touch the end of each wire with your finger one at a time. You should hear a loud buzz on two of the wires, one on each channel, nothing on the other two wire.
If you get the loud buzz that shows the pre-amp is working and the cartridge needs to be replaced. If you do not get a buzz, or it is very weak. Then the pre-amp has failed and needs replacing.

SOURCE: Kenwood VR-715 reset?
Yes, there is. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet, then
plug it back in while holding down the POWER ON/STANDBY key.
That will clear the contents of the memory, reset the microcomputer and take the unit back to factory settings. Hope this helps. Let me know.

More than likly there is a bad component in one of the output circuits that is activating a circuit protection feature of the device, this is actually a good thing and is telling you it needs help. I can't tell you what the component is, but it is definitally something a service tech should take a look at. Chances are it's a bad cap or a failing resistor, but there is a good chance that it's the power supply as well.

Testimonial: "Thank you for a speedy and precise response!"
SOURCE: How do I connect my
The best way to do this is to connect you dish network receiver is directly to the tv. Try to use the best video type possible. HDMI is the best, next is component and lastly is composite. This will take care of the video portion. Next, connect digital audio output to the Kenwood Receiver. I dont know what type of a digital audio output your dish box has, but your kenwood receiver has both optical and coaxial inputs so you should be fine there. Once you have both audio and video wired, change the inputs on both your tv and kenwood receiver to the inputs you are connected to. You might need to set up the kenwood to tell it that your running digital audio to it in the setup menus. Hopefully this helps, let me know if you need any clarification.
