Question about Kenwood Unity System

1 Answer

No component signal

I have an older kenwood unity all in one dvd player. for some reason I am not longer getting a component signal out of the player. composite works fine.
I made sure the cables are ok and that the tv itself will see a component signal.
No idea what the cause would be. Just turned it on and tried to watch a dvd as normal. tried unplugging it, reconnecting the wires, not sure if theres anything else I can try.. thanks.

I have exactly the same problem with an Aspire AD-900. Also no digital coaxial audio. Composite and analog audio are fine. Did you find out the cause?

I have a kenwod krf-v5050d amp (old I know). I have my blu ray hooked up via an optical cable however I can not get any sound through the speakers from it. I know it shouldnt be the speakers or the amp...


xjackdeth,

All systems with multiple audio/video inputs for each connection must be told what connection you want it to play. Most likely your selected choice of input is set to an input other than digital. I included a link to download the manual for your Kenwood model; see page 9 for "Input mode settings".

First use the input selector knob to select the input you are using for the blue ray player, then press the input mode button to select digital auto; the Kenwood should take a few seconds to switch over and then you will be in business.

DVD Player Quick Connect Tips


There has been a lot of confusion lately about how best to connect your new DVD or Blueray player to your TV set. For many this has been a nightmare since the introduction of the new Component and HDMI versions of Higher Priced DVD and Blueray disc players.

Remember that your new Blueray player will play DVD's as well as Blueray Disc format movies.

For the common connection that most people use, there are only 3 wires to consider. Yellow for Video, Red and White for Stereo. Always use the line out jacks on the back of the player to connect to the TV. Use the Line in (Video In) jacks on the TV set.

The only thing to remember here is to match the colors exactly and select the video source from your TV remote control. If all those numbers and buttons are confusing to you, just memorize where your Source button is on the remote, and choose one input at a time until your DVD welcome screen appears.

The next higher quality Video source will be the component Video outputs on your DVD or BlueRay player. These will be Red, Green And Blue.

Also note that you will need a red/white audio cable for sound with these connections since the component outputs only transmit Video.
You will be able to see the audio connectors close to the red blue and green component outputs on most players. All connectors on your player will be outputs, unless you bought a DVD recorder and player.
We will reference only the player type at this time.
As mentioned before, you only need to match the wires from the DVD or BlueRay output to the exact input connectors on your TV, but now the audio connectors need to be used as well.

Use your source selector on the remote as before to View your movie.

The easiest connector to hit the market so far is the HDMI version, which combines the Video signal as well as the audio signal into a single manageable cable. If your TV set doesn't have this connector you will need to use one of the above methods to connect your system.

To use the HDMI you need only plug it in to the connector designed for its use on both the TV as well as the player.

There is very little chance you will connect this to the wrong port, but just in case your HDMI TV and DVD/Blueray player are equipped with an Optional USB port, you should read the panel closely to be sure you have the right port. Remember, these connectors should never be forced on. If they are too tight to connect, you may have chosen the USB port by mistake.

Connected samsung ht x720 (home cinema system 2.1) to v+ box.Cant get picture when playing a DVD.Can hear the sound tough.Thanks


You probably need to change the incoming input signal on your tv.

In other words, your audio is coming directly out from your dvd player, and going directly to the audio power amp.

Your video does the same thing, except it goes to your tv. Your tv has multiple places for "incoming" signals to hook in to it. Take a look at where you're hooking your video in - the input should be marked ... something like "Component 1" "Component 2" "HDMI 1" "HDMI 2" ... something like that.

On your remove, there will be a button that says, "Input." When you push this, you will see that your TV brings up an input selection window. Pressing the "input" button on your remote should scroll through the ports on the tv. Briefly pause on each input selection to see if it begins receiving a video signal from your DVD player.

Low Sound from Kenwood Record Player when Hooked up to Amp


Make sure the player is grounded to the amp chassis. Use the ground side of the AM antenna. Use the phono input of the amp, not a tape, CD, or DVD. The signal from a record player is much lower, hence, if you use the phono input for a tape player it is noisy and loud. Clean the needle too. I hope this solves the issue.

Bose 3-2-1 - trouble connecting to Samsung 26" LCD monitor


Sounds like you might be out of luck with the older 3-2-1 system. I am in the same boat, and am thinking I will only be able to utilize the "audio out" on the back of my Samsung LCD, and run that to the "aux in" on the Bose 3-2-1. This of course will not allow me to utilize the 3-2-1's DVD player, but by using a seperate DVD player, such as a Blu-Ray hooked to the LDC TV, the video will make it to the screen, and then the audio should make it through the Bose 3-2-1 speakers. Probably not the "best" solution, but one that I am going to attempt.

Dvd connection


Yes! You can pass the video signal through the receiver. This is most useful when you have more than one video device (e.g. DVD, cable box, VCR,...), and you can use the receiver to switch to the audio and video for the selected source at the same time.

On the back of your Onkyo HT-SR800 there is a section labeled "Component Video." It has three inputs and one output. So, attach your DVD by component cables to the "DVD In" and then attach component cables from the "OUT" receiver connection to the TV.

If your TV doesn't have a component connection, then this addresses your other question. You can't gain anything with this, because your TV doesn't support it. Connect the DVD to the TV according to the highest quality connection that they both support, in this order: composite, S-Video, component.

If you are using composite, but they both handle composite, than yes, you will get a better picture by going to component (or even S-Video). If both devices support progressive scan, this could be a substantial difference.

Your receiver accepts component, s-video and component video, but keep in mind, it may not do "video switching." So if you connect the DVD in via component, but go out to the TV over composite, then you may not get any video at all (but feel free to try). Try to avoid this, but you may be forced to try depending on the limitations of the various devices that you are hooking up.
