My KS3102 is having two problems. First, when cranked all the way the volume is barely audible. Next, on the speaker status display the icon is telling me my surround [rear] speakers are not working or not hooked up, I'm not sure. The speakers are hooked up. I don't have the remote yet, that arrives this afternoon.. Thanks, Wally

The errant switch, control or condition may change and you will suddenly release the amp's full power and possibly destroying your speakers. If a signal isn't audible at 1/2 volume it's probably not there.
Carefully examine the front panel for clues like a misplaced Mute or Tape Monitor control or Multichannel Analog Input selected.
There is a good chance that a common control (volume pot??) may have developed a high-resistance or 'dead' spot through defect or idleness and is causing your symptom. Turn the POWER OFF and operate every control throughout its range a number of times, especially rarely-used ones like Tape Monitors and the Mute control.
Turn the volume to something reasonable and see if that helped.
You seem pretty anxious to perform surgery. Have you done traige yet?
It could be something as simple as a malfunction on a heaphone jack connection.
DO headphones work? Try using FM as the most basic source.
How do we know the internal audio is present and sufficiently loud to drive the speakers? If you have a tape deck or a TV with audio in connections, run an RCA jack to it and see if there's something there to listen to. No signal = no speakie = something other than the power amps failing = not those caps you read about.
BTW: don't use Maximum volume while troubleshooting. If you finally do touch the one thing causing the problem you'll probably launch the speaker cones right out of their enclosures and have to start all over again with blown speakers.
I have the same problem. This works for some people, it didnt work for me. 1. Remove any discs 2. turn the unit off and unplug 3. wait about 20 secs and replug the power cord. 4. turn unit back on .Press dvd button on the remote to take unit to the dvd mode. 5.Using remote enter 76419. The display should say GOODBYE and go off. Press the power botton again to turn on and good luck
These units have a protection device that will trip an internal breaker and shut off to prevent damage. This feature will function normally if: 1. the volume is too loud. 2. You have a stray wire touching either metal on the unit or the wire from an adjacent speaker. Check all of your speaker wire connections. Also, it can't hurt to make sure that the speakers are all properly phased (+ and - connections are consistent on all speakers.)
As an afterthought, I've seen this happen too if the wires are too long or if there have been multiple splices. When the amp cant push the speaker and is overworking itself, the breaker will turn off.
check if the digital compression option is off.turning it on should make the sound equal.also might want to check your volume setting on the main menu when you turn it on.only problem is you need the remote.hope this helps in some way.
I had a similar problem. Believe it or not, I randomly switched which ports the speaker wires used to connect to the receiver and kept playing with it with music going until all the speakers were making noise.
Hey I have the same home theater and experience the same audio problem from time to time. What you have to do is use the menu button on the remote and select all the speakers again. For some reason this home theater just turns off the speakers randomly from time to time.
Now I'm experiencing problems with video not displaying on different inputs. I'm getting a new home theater, I think this one has had it.
