Question about Kenwood VR-2090 Receiver

1 Answer

Sound from digital input(s cut out

Audio from both the coax and optical inputs cuts out after a few minutes. The audio from the coax cuts after 1-2 minutes while the audio from the optical cuts out after 5-10 minutes - this occurs on all four of the digital inputs. All the analog audio inputs operate fine. The fan does not ever seem to turn on either - but I have refrained from leaving the receiver on for extended periods of time. I bought this unit refurbished around 6 years ago and quit using it a years ago when this problem occurred - my main concern is that the repair cost would equal that of a new comparable unit.

Re: sound from digital input(s cut out

You are probably correct. The input switcher IC or the power supply feeding the Optical switcher is most likly got a problem. The cost to diagnoise a problem like this could cost you with a repair, more then you could most likly get a new reciver for. Its a shame of all the great technology that gets thrown aweay in the dumps every day. Good Luck PS please do not forget to rate this thread.

No sound on coax audio input from HDTV

Check your settings on your tv. You may have to turn off the internal tv speakers in the setup menu in order to get any audio output from the jacks on the back.

Wenn I connect the coax cable the display show --------, and the Receiver can't detect the digital audio signal, even though I can mesure a PCM signal with the Osilloscope.

Page 71

There is no sound from digital sources (from COAXIAL or OPTICAL input jack). • Check that the INPUT MODE is not set to "ANALOG" (page 52). • Check that the Analog Direct is not being used. • Check that the "A. ASSIGN" function is not used to reassign the audio input of another source to the selected input (page 53). • Set "ARC" to "ARC OFF" when no sound is output from TV OPTICAL IN jack during TV input (page 58).

HDMI signal cuts out for a few seconds constantly from receiver to television. It does it when switched to cable box and the roku box. Onkyo TX-SR606 Scientific Atlanta Cable box thru HDMI Roku Box...

Mine did the same thing where the screen would go black for a few seconds and then the picture and sound came back. I would try (1) switch HDMI cables, (2) try a different HDMI input in the back of the receiver, (3) try different input in the back of the TV. None of these seemed to work with mine. I finally ended up running the cable box direct to the TV and only run the audio through the reciever via coax or digital. No more problems. I think the HDMI inputs in the back of the reciever have a problem continuously carrying the signal if it is the leaset bit weak.

No sound fom optical input

Do you have your TV hooked up, so you can see the AVR-4800 system menu on its screen (if not, see the manual). You need to go down to the digital input menu item where you associate each component with its input source, whether it is coax, optical 1, optical 2, ..., etc.

Connecting new tv to DRA-685

you can use the headphone jack just get an adaptor to change from the headphone type to RCA type. adjust the volume of the tv to 3/4 of the way to give line level to the stereo, use an aux input on the stereo. if you had a suround sound dolby digital / DTS receiver then use the digital coax out to that type of receiver, but since you have an anolog 2 channel receiver you must use the only anolog source (the headphone).

Blank spots

Is this during a DVD? if so then your DVD may be scratched or your digital coax cable is a cheapo inferior quality cable.
