Centre channel not working on SACDs

I bought the Sony SCD XE-680 second - hand a few days ago and connected it to my Kenwood Audio Visual Sound Receiver KRF - V505D using the DVD/6Ch setting.I connected it via 5 phono leads ( I do not have a subwoofer, but have the front L, R , the Centre, and the back L and R speakers set up and already working with my DVD Dolby -Digital and DTS Player. The trouble is I set the SACD up to test the speakers , they all hiss accordingly including the Centre, and then when I play the SACDs i have , the Centre channel is utterly silent and various bits of the music are missing.I think I have tried every combination of buttons to get it to work , but have hit a brick wall. Help would be gratefully appreciated! Kind regards Nagimud

Thanks for linking me to some help pages, but I have already tried all what was listed, about multichannel, etc, both on the Amp and on the Sony SACD player. It seems the brick wall will never break down.

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.

I bought a second hand vehicle with a kenwood car audio,it needs a code to open it.

When you disconnect your battery and then reconnect itagain, it disables the radio. This is an anti-theft protection for your carradio.
The enable your radio the activation code is in your vehicle owner's manual. Ifyou do not have this code you need to go to your vehicle manufacturer's servicecentre and get them to enter this code for you.

Centre speaker

The controls I would check are speaker set-up and configuration for a multi-channel sound, be sure to enable center channel YES/NO option and trim center channel level output.
