No Sound on Kenwood DVR-6300

When I am in Video-1 mode(sound replacing my TV's speakers), I only get sound while the DVD door is in the act of opening or closing.
The sound is goes off when the tray is fully out or fully closed.

SOURCE: DVD tray makes noise when it rotates

This noise can be casued by two things:

1) The tray is not completely in the loaded position and the "clamper" is rubbing. Replace the loading belt and the loading sequence will complete and the noise should stop.

2) The "CD table" that is part of the spindle motor assembly has slipped a bit. This will make the CD/DVD ride too low and strike the lower tray support. This will require that the table be "re-aligned" to the proper height which may not be possible on your model without special measurement equipment. The height is critical to proper operation of the unit.

Try replacing the load belt first and report your results.

SOURCE: LG RHT 398H. DVD tray not closing.

I've dismounted the unit and it seems that I have located the problem. The tray is connected to a wheel, so any displacement is translated into a rotation of this wheel. When the tray is near the close position, it releases a mechanism in order to position the lens. Summarising: if you have pushed the tray with your hand instead of pushing the button open/close, probably you have introduced a desynchonization. To solve this, when the tray is in close position, apply a small rotation to the wheel in order to compensate the desynchronization. There is not an exact position, but you need to try. A few degrees is enough. Regards

SOURCE: Disc tray won't stay closed.

I fixed this by jerking the tray gently. Someone jammed my tray and it skipped a few gear teeth. It seemed like the machine couldn't pull it in far enough to reach its preset position. So I let it close and when it was almost closed, I gently jerked it out to skip the gear teeth back into alignment. It is kind of tricky because the motor will just reverse instead of skipping teeth (you'll hear the plastic clicking when it skips). Perhaps unplug it and slowly push it in manually then **** it back out softly. Just be gentle. Good luck.

SOURCE: I have a Kenwood DV-605

Move the tray around some more.

Rotate the actual gear with your fingers till it goes to next disk.

That is the fix!

Problem setting up DVD home theatet sound system sc-pt460 with my vierra panasonic TV. The two appropriately connected with HDMI plus Optical cables. Mainly wish to use it improve TV sound. Have got it...

to see the dvd sound menu option you must be on the correct input selection for your tv. ie. if its Scart, then AV1, or if HD then HDMI 1 etc. then you see the options. as for sound being variable, you can adjust the sound for each speaker in this mode. Main thing for having surround sound with normal TV is to turn on the sound enhancement mode. also, on your viera link on the tv remote, make sure sound its selected as home cinema. word of warning, leave dvd on D-In option, and when turning the TV off, use standby mode, which turns both systems off, ensuring the link does not break.
