Question about Kenwood VR-407 Receiver

Remote problem My remote control works intermittently. It's a random problem. It doesn't matter which remote I use, I get the same problem. I obviously then have to get up and control it manually. Any suggestions to the problem. Thanks...

Re: remote problem

I just started having the same issue. I reset the receiver to factory defaults by unplugging the unit, pressing and holding the power button, and plugging it back in. Remote works fine now. Strange, but it works.

Re: remote problem

It sounds like an intermittant Infared sensor problem or there is an intermittant solder connection between the sensor and the controler chip. Good Luck

Yamaha rxv 870 - volume does not work from remote(s)

hi i have the same problem. yamaha rx-v870 with a remote control that works perfectly except for the volume up/down. i pressed the buttons for a minute and applied some lemon gunk remover liquid and this helped for a very short period. i am wondering if the problem is with the little motor inside the receiver that rotates the volume knob itself, as opposed to an infrared problem on the transmitter/receiver.

Hi, I have a Yamaha rx-v450 amp that won't change sound modes (stereo, hall, jazz, rock etc) from the remote control but it works from the buttons on the unit. I've checked my remote by pointing it...

Hi! Transmitting doesn't mean it's working, What you should do to test it is use a good quality universal remote such as a Logitech Harmony and first program the preset code for your receiver into the Universal Remote. If that works, you know your OEM remote has gone bad, at least for those buttons. If it doesn't then you you should attempt to have your Universal Remote "learn" the IR signals from your receiver's remote If the controls still don't work, there is a problem with either your IR receiver on your receiver or the the circuitry that proceesses the signals into commands. Good Luck!

I would like to operate a Samsung HD Cable receiver (DCB-H360R) by means of a Yamaha remote control (RAV293). I have tried all Samsung remote control codes as specifid in the Yamaha Owner Manual, but no...

Yamaha remote supports only those codes that are in the manual (they are pre-programmed in the remote), so no other code can be used. Your only option is to try codes from different brand in the manual (if not done already) or buy a universal remote, which you can program both for Samsung and Yamaha.

Can't set TV code on Yamaha rav293 remote

i had the same problem with the same remote but just figured it out. on the remote, to the left of the "DOCK" button, you'll see two buttons labeled "[A]" and [B] which is what you'll use as the TV source button. press the code set button, wait for it to blink two times, then press the [A] button, and press your code. VOILA! problem solved. you could also use the [B] button, but it doesn't really matter. now the tv controls work on the remote. you may have to go through all the codes for your manufacturer but eventually it should work

All remotes controlling my Onkyo TX-SR304 stopped working

try putting the remote an inch away from the IR receiver on the unit and see if it works then, if so then you definitely know its broken. This can and does happen. From what you have posted it sounds like no remote is working on the receiver, the ir receiver can break. If you need further assistance let me know.
Thank you,
