Question about Audio & Video Receivers

1 Answer

No sound output

Kenwood VR 5090 receiver has worked well for 7+ years. Occasionally, would have trouble identifying Dolby 3.1 on most DVD titles. More often within the past year. Cycling through input selector, I noticed that my exisitng inputs would not work, except for AM radio.
About 45 days ago, the unit still has all display(s) buy, NO Sound output-even through headphone jack.
WHAT do you think happened??

Appreciate a reply,
Tom V.

I need to hook up my Kenwood vr-207 to a satellite HD receiver and blue ray player. How do I hook up the component cables. I am not sure where to plug in the "in's" and "outs".


In's always go to Out's.

The VR207 has no component video inputs, just a composite video output so you can use your TV for the receiver's On Screen Display.

http://www.kenwoodusa.com/UserFiles/File/UnitedStates/Home/Manuals/vr207.pdf

Just run your BluRay and Cable box HiDef HDMI, component, s-video, composite video, whatever (in that order of preference) to a matching input on your TV or monitor.

As a rule you should run the best audio from each of your video sources to the VR. There is no compelling reason to ever send good audio or video to a device that has little (or no) use for it.

Unfortunately, the VR207 has no digital audio inputs, so the best it can muster regarding surround is Dolby Pro Logic derived from 2-channel inputs.

BUT, if you have a DVD, BLURAY player or cable Box with 5.1 analog outputs you can let their internal circuitry decode Dolby Digital programming to true 5.1 for input ("DVD/6CH") to the VR207.

Kenwood Receiver VR 806 turning off


Sounds like the music amplifier is different to the tuner audio amp. The music amplifier is now looking at an unbalanced impedance which is less than it should be. Therefore the output chip of the music amp has more current through it than it wants so it gets hot and shuts down.Put a four ohm wirewound resistor ( from Radio Shack ) in series with each surround speaker to reduce the current flow through the amplifier output.

Is your tv wired to a cable box or an HD antenna?

Case 1: If your signal is weak, then the chances are that the feedback from your tv to the receiver's processor cannot interpret a Dolby Digital signal.

Case 2: Check the TV MENU AUDIO setting. Does your TV have a ON/OFF feature for the optical output, or any aux. speaker outputs?

No sound from front right and left speakers


you may have a dc condition present on speaker outputs. this could be caused by dry solder joints, suggest blanket resolder of the output stages for front channels.

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)
