I looked thru the manual and the only two or three things I would ask would be: Is it in the right control mode? Amp/TV/DVD etc. silly I know but have to ask. Ithere a light or display that lights up when you push a button? if so, is it staying on? if so you could have a button thats jammed, it happens. Lastly it could be a microprocessor error in the remote and the remote needs to be reset. I didn't get to the process of how to do it but it is in the manual. That would be the last thing to try since programming alot of devices can be very time consuming! Lastly, the strange icon you see; is it on the lcd display of the remote or on the receiver? Hope this helps, if not send a reply and I'll dig some more for you

My kenwood kr-v7030 won't turn off anymore with remote or manually.


Either the remote battery are flat or the frequency settings have changed. You can check with the manual the type of frequency it uses to match the that of the Kenwood. Sometimes there are switches you can change to adjust the correct frequency. Others have a learning code set by the manufacturer and are usually in the operation manual. If you want to test whether the remote is transmitting the signal to the Kenwood or not, Please do this...

If you have a digital camera or smartphone camera, switch the camera on and look at the viewfinder or camera screen; for smartphone, in a moment, then point the remote to the camera lens and press the volume button, which keeps sending the signal to the to control the volume of Kenwood system. If you see the infrared light on the remote flashing, then the remote is fine.

Now, about the smartphone camera. Start the camera and switch it for video capture (filming) and then point the remote towards the camera lens, and likewise you should see the remote light when doing the same tests as you with the video camera. If the infrared light lights up when pressing on the volume, the remote is fine.
It could be Kenwood, which requires factory repairs, not by you.

NO SOUND OUT OF RECIEVER, TURN VOLUME TO MAX AND CAN HARDLY HEAR ANYTHING


TURN THE VOUME CONTROL DOWN TO SOMETHING REASONABLE. MAX VOLUME IS ONLY USED TO DESTROY SPEAKERS.

Unmute it, de-select Tape Monitor, de-select M.Input.

Orion TVD2710. Lost remote, can't change signal input


I would suggest you try to find a universal remote that has an "input" or "source" button and program that one to your tv. By pressing the "source" or "input" button, it will change the input to the tv. I hope this helps! -Der Strom

Kenwood stereo control amplifier KC-206 doesn't work


I was able to use an universal remote control that I have, a Radio Shack Kameleon 6 in one remote control which I was able to program to run the audio portion of the Kenwood KC 206 control preamp. By adjust the remote sensor volume to max, I was able to get maximum volume out of the unit and drive the power section very nicely. Now I have to get up and manually turn the manual volume control for addition volume adjustment.

Hopefully Ken can find a remote that he can control the Kenwood control preamp the same way I did. Good luck here.

Mintex 37 inch wide screen. remote is working however cannot change channel, input source or volum. only turns tv off. The buttone on tv doesnot work connot change input source or volume


Check if the remote is in TV position, that is, because most of the remote controllers have the feature that you can program them for use with another devices. Make shure that one button that says "TV" in pressed and released once before you try to change any function on the TV.
