Re: surrond sound

For Stereo Mode (Front L & R Speaker), you must plug RCA cables (match up red and white) from Output on DVD player to DVD Input on the back of the receiver. Then with speaker wire, run from receiver speaker output (Front Speakers) to designated speaker (make sure + and - match up to both input and output). As for hooking up surround sound, I'm currently trying to figure that one out with just using the L, R and Center. I don' t want wire running all over the place just for rears. Hope this helps

My sound doesn't work with the DVD fuction. It works on the Tuner, the VHS1 but not DVD. Do I need to connect the S-Video cable or what else should I try?

S-video would be a better choice than (yellow) composite video but it won't help the sound.

Not knowing anything about the DVD player and how you have it wired we can only guess what is wrong with IT or the connection to the KLH.

Have you looked at the manuals for the DVD and the KLH? You don't just hook it up and run with it. Digital Audio must be assigned, for example, and other stuff.

Don't have a manual or the remote for KLH audio video receiver model r5100. Cannot figure out how to program the presets on the am/fm radio. Can someone tell me how or do I have to have a rermote to...

There should be numbered buttons on the receiver.Set the channel to what you want to preset,then press and hold down the numbered button you want.The sound will probably go away for a couple of seconds but when it comes back on the channel is preset.If you press the band button while you're already on FM and it goes to another FM,you can also preset more channels for FM.There should only be one AM band,then it will switch back to FM.
Good luck! Greg

Kenwood VR6070 speaker/amp problems

unit needs repair. Look at the b speakers. Conect a speaker or two to the B position. If you have no sound than your surrond sound is ok and the unit is bad. Sound comes directly into the b speaker and not threw the surrond system. My 6070 has a cold start up problem. no sound. time to purchase a new one. to costly to repair.

Center channel

Back to basic to advance:
Be sure you have all speakers connected correctly behind the receiver.If you center channel don't have any sound,it could be 7 different issues,but you could try to just hook up your center channel to either the right or the left speaker output to be sure the center channel speaker does work.
Check your the speaker wiring tip(if there is any),i will use just the speaker wire go straight to the center speaker output,go to the receiver to change it to pro-logic or dolby digital and of course you should put in a dvd in the dvd player to have a good quality movie to play the dialogue through the center channel for you test.
If you have tried the above step and still have no sound,you might consider hiring a troubleshooting master to take care of your issue.
Let me know what you need!
