Question about Kenwood VR-5090 5.1 Channels Receiver
We have no sound on digital output, only stereo. Our dolby, pcm or analog modes won't work. This receiver worked fine for a while, then we hit a button on the remote that made several things not work. We paid a technician to "fix" the problem, and when he left (after rewiring things) the sound cut out all the time and we had only stereo. We rewired some things and the sound doesn't cut out, but we still have no digital, dolby, etc. The guy we hired said dolby would never work with our old tv, but it worked fine before. The manual states, "DSP Modes can be selected only when THX mode is OFF. When the input is a 96k fs PCM signal, it is only stereo that can be selected." What does this mean?

You will need to go to audio set up and make sure it is set up to play with a center chanel if you have one as well as the surrounds. You can also only have side a speakers selected when trying to use surround. If you have b selected it will play in stereo only

Probably an issue with the switching power supply or possibly a shorted output. There are various protection circuits that will cause that. Most suspect is the SMPS (switch mode power supply) fault detection. (Check your output for a short though, i.e.shorted speaker wires)
