Question about Kenwood VR-407 Receiver

1 Answer

No sound from tuner all other inputs OK

I have a Kenwood VR-407 AV receiver that has no sound from the tuner input. About a month ago I turned it to tuner expecting to hear the radio as always. But I was greeted with silence. If I turn the volume all the way up I can barely hear the radio. All the other inputs are fine, Cable box, DVD, & VCR.

It sounds as though one or more of the MOSFET's failed. MOSFET's are metal-oxide semiconductor field effect transistors. In layman's terms the Ic responsible for amplifying the sound produced in a given circuit.
These are not difficult to replace for a qualified shop and I think you would be surprised at how inexpensive it actually is - for a qualified shop...
My advice send it in and have it estimated and repaired. You might even research the net and send it off to have it done... Stereo repair is a very competitive market and it could save you some real bucks..
Hope this helps

I think my receiver just blew. hissing noise from all speakers, now i get no sound - but the display still

unplug the receiver, Everything- speakers, input/outputs. The only cord to the device left should be the power cord.
Power up the receiver, set the tuner on a strong station. check sound quality with headphones only.
If that was ok, now pick one speaker to test all channels with. Follow the procedure above with the
speaker. check each output channel with the tuner as a source using the one speaker. Good Luck!

I have a VR-407 reciever and I am unable to get my CD/DVD rear outputs to work. I am hooking up a DP-3020 and I can get it to work in the Audio L/R jacks in the front. Is there something that I need to do...

A Kenwood VR-407 is a receiver and has an INPUT pair for CD/DVD, not outputs. Plug ANY functioning audio source (except a turntable) into it and select it on the front panel.

If your DP doesn't work on either I'd suspect something is wrong with IT.

I am connecting an amplifier to my VR-407 to accomodate more speakers I have installed throughout my home. Where do I connect the amplifier?

Connect the amplifier input to the VR-407 using the receiver's REC OUT jacks for the MD/TAPE input on the back panel. This is a fixed line-level output for recording, and will work fine for driving the additional amp.

Have a VR-407 receiver, all of a sudden there's no audio coming out of the speakers from the TV. Also, DVD, tuner and CD player have no sounds. Speakers are only a couple years old.

Check for basic things like speakers being turned off or switched to speaker b from a and the tape monitor switch being on. Larry's Electronics.

Kenwood vr-5900 no sound

Check you settings on the receiver. get into the menu of the unit and check the "Audio" settings. if you can choose by specific input, select "Digital" otherwise, select "Auto" that should correct the problem. If you still have a problem, post a comment and I can help you troubleshoot some more.

Speakers not working

They will only have ambient sound (not same sounds as front speakers). Also for each input (video 1, video 2, dvd, tuner, etc...) you need to choose what surround mode you would like to use via the "Listen Mode" button. There is a little pictogram in the display which indicates which speakers are in use.
