Question about Kenwood VR-507 Receiver

Open Question

Audio/surround cannot get sound from more than two speakers. one front right, one surround rear left. center is not working. bass is on and working. test "hiss" come from all speakers clearly and can be adjusted up and down with clear volume change notice during setup mode. but to no avail. this makes no difference which sound mode receiver is in or which mode speaker a/b mode is in. dvd's play perfectly, full surround sound in every mode. I have tivo, which i have reset several times, and it restarts with full surround sound each time as well. I also have unplugged the receiver overnight to reset the microprocessor but that may be that is not enough time?i'm old and tired and i bet you are not! please help...thank you very much,cathi holmes

SOURCE: Receiver Shutoff

That may be a clue to your shutdown problem. Disconnect that speaker and see if the unit still shuts down. If it does not, then there is a problem with this speaker,or the wiring going to this speaker. If the unit still shuts down, disconnect each speaker at a time to see where the problem is. If none of the speakers seem to cause the shutdown problem, there is na major fauly in the amp circuit, so the amp will need serviceing or replacement. Good Luck

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: primary speaker output jacks don't work

here in your manual on step 8 you need to make sure this is set to normal or large speakers for the surround speakers
here shows how the surround speakers are to be connected
and dolby digital will not work unless the device connected has the coax or optical digital audio connection connected

SOURCE: Surround sound not working properly

Hi guys,

Make sure that your sound aka dvd or whatever is set for a DTS (5.1) set your dvd at bitstreem and your receiver to automatic detection. When your movie will start you will heard your Receiver Relay//Mosfet clicking and a Red led will say DTS once you get there you will be able to select your Doldy digital surround the real one.

Ps: if you want to reset your VR-309 to default HOLD the POWER button for 5 sec unplug it from the wall hold it for 5sec while unplugged and replug it will be rested to default.

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.

Front speakers 5.1

Turn up the volume on the left or right speakers or turn down the center channel volume to meet your preferences. There should be a setting for that in most receivers.

Surround sound

there are 2 channel modes on your reciever, as well as surround modes, and it sounds like you have changed modes by accident. just open the little door on the front, and take it out of 2 channel mode

configure ur PC (both OS audio and third party sound driver) for surround sounds. control panel- sounds and audio devices - speaker settings - advanced - speker settings. so this done. make sure u select the 6 input channel - the button is on the right edge near the volume knob. near the vol button there are two buttons for selecting input type with up down arrow. from that u can select the input type this will be indicated on the top front indicator. but with the 6 input channel selected all selections are preceeded. if u select stereo mode u will have left/ right audio only.
make sure u connect the input right. connect from computer to 6 channel input. main, surround, center and sub-woofer.  connect the spekers to main (L/R), rear(surround) (L/R), center and sub woofer to terminal marked sub woofer ouput. this done select like i said before the 6 channel button. that should do it.

So your saying that you have no rear channel. Some recivers use a single stereo output ic for both sides on the rear speakers. you could have a defect with this IC . Anther thing Im sure you check3ed the obvious ie : the switch is on suround sound? If there is a front to rear fader is it in the middle? Good Luck
