Reciever moves to default setting on its own

In video 1, 2, 3.. after an undetermined amount of time the receiver goes back to what seems to be the default setting of cd/dvd. Also when I am playing multiple cd's on video 1, when the first cd or when in ramdum mode the first song is over the receiver switches back to cd/dvd. Then I have to go to the remote and change back to video 1 and do it all over again. Video 1 is my cd player Kenwood #CD-404 Video 2 is the vcr Video 3 is the television CD/DVD is the dvd player Thanks, Jim

disconnecting the tv from the audio connections on your amp may have created a powersurge in the audio input selector IC. Try powering down the amp at the wall completely for 5 mins and turn it on again. Check to see if operation has returned. If not then it may need an audio selector chip replaced.

This problem can be caused when connecting or disconnecting rca connectors from non earthed equipment like TV and VCRs, By the nature of this type of connector, it will spike the input line by connecting with voltages floating often over 100volts.

to avert this problem occurring, wire all the equipment up and with aerial disconnected and tv / vcr turned off at the wall socket. Turn the equipment power on at the wall last thing.

Kenwood vr606 reciever shutting off subwoofer and centre speaker simultaneously after few minutes/seconds of powering on. WHat's the cause?

The receiver's out put sections are grouped in pairs. Front left and right in one output, rear left and right in second output, and center channel and sub output on the third. Sounds like a semiconductor or semiconductors have gone bad in the center & sub output.

Hi I just set up Samsung SWA-4000 and for some reason I cant get it to link up it says Rear Check on the receiver and then the module goes to stand by


This means that its lost the connection to the wireless transmitter, the error means Rear CHK or check hence RCHK. Seems that if the unit is not quite in line of sight the connection can be flaky. I would check the positioning of the reciever. Try moving it, see if you cant get a better connection.

My denon avr1200 receiver once it is turned on goes into Protection mode. How do you reset or make work?

The reciever will go into protection mode when there is a short in the speaker wires or the amplifier was overloaded. What I would do first is verify that none of the speaker wire connections are loose at the back of the reciever or at each speaker. And verify that none of the wires are making contact with each other. Then label each speaker wire as you remove them from the reciever so you can re-install them correctly. After you have disconnected the speaker wires try unplugging the reciever for 10 to 15 minutes. Most recievers have a self-resetting overload protection switch and this should reset it back to normal. Now try plugging the reciever back in and turn it on without the speaker wires connected. It should be out of protection mode now. If it is still in protection mode verify that there is not a reset switch somewhere on the back of the reciever. If it is not in protection mode now then proceed to connect one speaker set at a time and turn on the reciever to see if it goes into protection mode. If it goes into that mode after connecting a speaker then that speaker is the cause of the problem. If it does not go into the mode after all speakers are connected then try turning the volume up. If it goes into protection mode then there could be an internal short on the amplifier or a incorrect OHM rated speakers connected to reciever. Verify that the speakers are rated the correct OHMS.

Reciever shuts off

Hi there

May I ask how many watts can your reciever handle ? And how many watts does your speakers need in order to be powered up (input). The two speakers you have installed might be too powerful for your reciever to handle. You might have to down grade to less powered speakers. All in all you have an excellent product there good choice...

XBox 360 to Reciever to TV via HDMI no sound

I recently got the same receiver and had the same problem. Here's what I was told - and it worked for me:

Even though HDMI cables carry audio and video, for whatever reason this reciever won't accept audio through hdmi. Apparently only much more expensive recievers carry audio through hdmi. What you have to do is run optical audio cables from your xbox, cable box, dvd player or other video device to the optical inputs on the back of the reciver. Then you customize the scene buttons to match your video and audio inputs.

You can get these optical cables pretty cheap on line or even at target. Don't get ripped off by Best Buy for these cables. I love best buy, but they rip off on cables!

This receiver is great - once I got it all figured out and running right I've loved it! Hope everything works out for you!

First a couple of questions:
1) Does the panel seem to behave this way more after the set warms up or is it just random?
2) Is anything else effected or are you just loosing the front panel display?

Shows to be stuck in Standby.

hold down the enter button and the advanced surround button for 5 seconds or so and the amp will restart, the display will come up and hopefully it will be ok. its often caused by using speakers under 8 ohms, or damaged speaker cables etc
