Question about Kenwood VR-309
I have been unable to control my VR-505 with the remote control for a long time now. Eliminating all obvious possibilities such as batteries, I attempted to program my Universal remote with every Kenwood code possible and can get no response. My next effort was to install an IR receiver kit using IR emitters, connecting block and IR receiver. My first assumption was that the remote was bad, but after installing the IR kit and trying a few buttons, the IR receiver on the kit flashes when using the Kenwood factory remote. That tells me that the remote is flashing Inferred out of it. And I assume that it is just the IR receiver on the VR-505 itself. How would I fix this? My next attempt was going to be to take apart the unit and resolder the connections, but before I went that indepth, I was looking for advice. Thanks in advance.
I have the same problem with my Kenwood VR-309. Thought it was the remote. So I bought an expensive Harmony remote. It is a wonderful remote, but the same problem. However, it is intermittent. Sometimes the receiver responds and sometimes not.
Sounds to me like the issue is the rx in the unit. It can be fixed with very little work if you can locate the part. Let me take a look and see if I can locate the part number for you. Although I have to say that Kenwwod can keep a tight lip on their parts lists.
