Question about Kenwood VR8050 Audio/Video Receiver 100 Watts x 6. Black 019048153593 System

Open Question

Kenwood home theater receiver

I have the vr616 receiver and DVD player. The DVD player has crapped out. It will no longer read DVDs and every time I load one in it reads an error message. I've given up on that, and finally bought a new DVD player. The receiver has recently been shutting off for no apparent reason when I have the surround sound on. It shuts off anywhere within 1-5 minutes after turning on, and the power light blinks really fast. It's only 3-4 years old, and should be lasting longer. I'd appreciate any help.

Please update your post with any Model Numbers that you can retrieve, especially the subwoofer. Off hand, and with the limited amount of information that you have provided, I would GUESS that your subwoofer is simply overheating, and is being shutdown internally, hence protecting the fuse because no short is detected. If you haven't moved and or vaccuumed/cleaned around or near your system regularly, dust, pollution, pollen...you name it, builds up and can easily prevent electronics from breeathing/venting properly.

ace71cf.jpg We repaired this problem by taking the advice of another member of FixYa! The component had recently been packed to be shipped. After unpacking the unit when we powered up the read out only displayed "LOADING" and the CD changer door would not open. We removed the exterior cover and gently moved the CD changer one position. When it locked back into position we powered up and the unit works fine now. FixYa sure help me save perhaps a $100. or more by not sending it to the manufacturer or another shop. And it was working within minutes so we could enjoy using it right away. Thanks guys I very much will recommend this sevice to others... this was the 2nd problem we fixed that day by logging onto FixYa!!!

My harman kardon player will read blurays, however it wont read dvds. Any idea why?


More than likely the lens that read dvd discs has failed. On blu-ray players, there are two (2) optical lens. One reads blu-rays and the other dvd/cds. They are independent of one another.

I put a dvd in but the system is not reading it. i've tried other dvds and tried all 5 disc changers, but my system is still not reading any dvds. what is wrong?


Hi, what makes the DVD not to be able to read the inserted DVD's is because the lens of the player is too weak to spin the dvd plate to play.

You will need to use a DVD Lens cleaner to clean up the lens inside the player to clean up dirt disturbing it from not playing any DVD cd.

If after cleaning the Lens and still does not play,you will need to replace the Lens..

Have a nice day..

My home theater system plays cds but will not play dvds, what can I do to fix it, makes a scratching noise when i put dvds in it, but plays fine with a cd.


There is something wrong with the DVD drive assembly inside. If you're brave, take it apart and check on what is making the noise. Also, try using a q-tip to clean the laser head if it's accessible.

If that doesn't help, it's time for a new DVD player.

This is why I always recommend people buy a home theater system without a DVD player built in. The DVD player is the weakest link, and stand alone DVD players can be purchased for as little as $25 depending on if you want upconversion or not.

If you cannot get the DVD player working in your surround system, just replace it with a stand alone DVD player, if you can, check to make sure there are audio inputs on the back of the receiver. If there are no audio inputs on the receiver, you will have to get the entire surround system replaced. If so, purchase a separate DVD player and surround system.

Dvd player will not read dvds


1 The problem is the dvds disc which you are using are not compatible with your system. Check the the regional code at the back of your dvd cover and check if your dvd player can play those dvds. This information is given in the booklet provided with your system.

My DVD player no longer plays original dvd's - only copied dvd's


some times when you create DVD movies by high speed DVD writers, your data cannot be read by dvd player with high performance. it s due to speed mismatching. always write DVDs with Normal speed in order to use with DVD players. while in case oof PC-DVD -Rom it does not happens. it can read any high speed wriiten DVDs. DVD-Rom in PC are more precise than DVD players. Some times Weak DVD player Lens system can also mis read.
