Question about Kenwood VR-6070 Receiver

1 Answer

Starting system cold, no sound for 2-3 minutes

I've had my Kenwood VR6070 for about 4 1/2 yrs now. Just recently when I go turn my system on to watch TV, a DVD movie, listen to the stereo or just play a CD no sound comes from any of my speakers and my auto detect is not detecting the signal. But, once the system warms up everything starts working as normal. I can power off the unit and turn it back on within 20 seconds and everything is working great, but if I start the unit cold that is when I seem to have the problem. Nothing has been added or changed within the last year. I reset the microcomputer with hopes it would resolve my problem, but it did not. Has anyone experienced this problem before? Not really sure what to do, or if it's een worth getting it looked at. Thank you for your time and assistance! Jeff

Its not worth having it looked at. $100.00 for a new 400.00 unit? My unit is doing the same thing. Turn it on and 2 to 5 minutes later it may come on. Change to video 3 4 5 etc it stop again. Only works with a cold start. Something in the unit has failed and is heat related. My original Kenwood 20/20 recevier still works. Must be 40 years old. New products just last 5 to ten years max if your lucky.

Hi, I've got a automatic tag aquaracer watch that loses about 4 mins every month (about 4 yrs old). Common problem? Can this be fixed ? Or is it a lemon of a watch? Any advice welcome. Cheers.

If it's automatic and 4 years old, it's probably time for a watch overhaul. Auotmatic watches need overhauled about once every 4-5 years. It's normal for it to lose time, but 4 minutes per month may be a little extreme. So, get the watch overhauled. I would recommend Tag Heuer to overhaul it.

Does kenwood VR-405 play DTS-HD Master

I have the 405 and a Samsung 3600 which has onboard DTS Master/ Dolby True HD. Out of the 6 movies I 've watched, only 2 have given me Dolby Digital. Bottom line: If the movie doesn't have DD, you cant get DD on the 405. I thought just about all blu rays had DD but its not so. Its time for us to upgrade!

Kenwood Home Theater

Please update your post with any Model Numbers that you can retrieve, especially the subwoofer. Off hand, and with the limited amount of information that you have provided, I would GUESS that your subwoofer is simply overheating, and is being shutdown internally, hence protecting the fuse because no short is detected. If you haven't moved and or vaccuumed/cleaned around or near your system regularly, dust, pollution, name it, builds up and can easily prevent electronics from breeathing/venting properly.
