Audio outputs stop working now speakers

At first some of my video audio outputs stopped working, like video 2, and then the cd/dvd audio output stopped working. now only the center speaker gives sound and very little at max volume its just audible.
thoughts as to what I can do and yes I checked all the connections I even opened the thing up to see if any wires were loose or came soldered.

Did you set all your parameters (see manual, page 15)? After that, you can then also change the levels of each speaker (page 16) also.

SOURCE: receiver works with digital signal input jack only.

Are you talking about the 6 channel input with all RCA jacks? Please explain a little better, it is very hard to know how you have it connected without a very good description since I can not put my eyes on it. You may need to check the settings, it may have the rears muted. More information from you will help me to be able to help you.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: No sound output from Center and Surround speakers

the only time the center and surround speakers put out sound is when it has a surround sound source such as a dvd etc. and only certain sounds come from them as well.

Multi room will not play any digital input, just analog. I.e. Video 1 when analog connection plays in multi room, but optical 1, when set as input for vid 1 will not play in multi; works fine in main...

I have a Marantz 7.1 AV receiver (sr5500) and I run a 5.1 set up for home theatre and use the 2 extra channels to run a pair of outdoor stereo speakers... When I first set it up I also found I could not get a digital signal output, only analog, after reading the manual(!) I discovered that it can only output an analog I have used the phono outputs on my blu-ray player into the CD input of the AV amp and play CDs outside through this and it also outputs the optical digital signal into the AV amp through the DVD iPod also plays through a dock and it's analog output to the speakers outside through another (CD-R) anolog input on the amp... Hope this helps

Noise coming out of speakers connected to Denon AVR 1908

Check for nearby wireless devices and move them away. -If the audio output from the source device (i.e. DVD, CD player) is digital (i.e. PCM, DTS or Dolby Digital) you're on your own. I'd be willing to bet the output is analog (red and white RCA), because the "beeps" and "exploding sounds" you describe seem like it could be caused by interference. Try replacing the cables. Otherwise the issue is probably with your receiver.

No speaker output from television input. Other inputs (DVD, CD) work fine.

Check to make sure you have the TV input connections in the correct
slots. Sometimes there are two possible inputs for a TV. One being a monitor 1 and the other a monitor 2. There could also be speaker select buttons on the receiver that correspond to each.

Also check the TV audio settings to make sure the output connections are sending an audio signal, also known as external speakers.

Can I connect a power amp to this unit?

If your 2100ES has a selectable INPUT AND OUTPUT and if you're intending to send all signal to the power amp, i.e. not bi-wiring or using the 2100ES to run mid-range or treble then you simply send Left & Right audio (White & Red cable) from a 2100ES output, probably AUX OUT ( it doesn't really matter apart from Phono on some units) straight to the power amp on AUX IN.
We should be just dealing with audio here, so connect the NAD audio output to CD or DVD IN. Select CD or DVD IN on 2100ES input switch and switch output to AUX OUT (whatever you decided goes to the power amp) on the 2100ES. Turn power amp to AUX IN and it will now get an audio signal from the 2100ES for amplification.
Speakers connect to the power amp as a normal amp, so pos and neg etc. The 2100ES now only acts as a signal feed, the power amp does all the work.

So, summary - switch on the NAD, press play - video goes separately and audio goes to the 2100ES. Turn 2100ES to INPUT for NAD. Turn 2100ES to OUTPUT allocated for power amp. Turn INPUT on power amp to allocation for 2100ES.

Turn it up!

DVD Audio Output Stops

Hey Kelby,

I've had a similar experience where a DVD movie would be playing and suddenly my Denon would just shut off, I later discovered that my rear speaker cables were not correctly installed in the back so the reciever recognized it as a short and would just shut down. Just make sure your rear speaker cables are correctly installed (right to right and left to left and with correct positive/negative placement) and see if it still does it. If it's still happening, then I wouldn't know what it is. Good luck.

No sound from my VR-507

My Kenwood1.gif VR-507 had been working great. I hadn't changed anything. I hadn't even moved it. It just suddenly stopped producing sound. It didn't just stop while it was on. I had turned it off and when I turned it back on, nothing. I tried running the speaker setup to see if it would output pink noise, I could hear the test sound, but I couldn't hear any audio from the TV or DVD player..

Help. :-(

No output from outputs to speakers.

Usually the outputs are not fused, but you can go thur speaker white noise test and see if that works first. If it does, then outputs are probably fine, IF not then the output transistors are most likely bad. Let me know and we can try some other things thur live chat if you would like. Good luck Guru Jay
