Kenwood remote 0809 wont adjust volume or change inputs

I looked thru the manual and the only two or three things I would ask would be: Is it in the right control mode? Amp/TV/DVD etc. silly I know but have to ask. Ithere a light or display that lights up when you push a button? if so, is it staying on? if so you could have a button thats jammed, it happens. Lastly it could be a microprocessor error in the remote and the remote needs to be reset. I didn't get to the process of how to do it but it is in the manual. That would be the last thing to try since programming alot of devices can be very time consuming! Lastly, the strange icon you see; is it on the lcd display of the remote or on the receiver? Hope this helps, if not send a reply and I'll dig some more for you

Kenwood VR-409 surround system clicks off when sound is turned up

Assuming you aren't turning the volume knob past half way before the problem occurs, you most likely have a damaged speaker cable or a bad driver in one of your loudspeakers. (Once your volume knob has reached about half way the amplifier is producing its maximum efficiency.)

Note the position of your volume control when the clipping occurs, then remove one speaker at a time and raise the volume. If you identify a speaker as the culprit, inspect or replace the wire running to it and try it again. If you aren't able to find a bad speaker, the problem is internal and will need to be fixed at a repair shop.

Good Luck,

IR receiver on unit not working?

Sounds to me like the issue is the rx in the unit. It can be fixed with very little work if you can locate the part. Let me take a look and see if I can locate the part number for you. Although I have to say that Kenwwod can keep a tight lip on their parts lists.
