There is a cold solder connection on the display device, on the display driver board, or on or in the power supply that supplys the display voltage to the driver board. The only way you can repair it is if you have some soldering experience and or some electronic troubleshooting skills. If you go in and start poking around, and you poke at the wrong thing, It will smoke on you, as solid state electronics are very unforgiving when it comes to shorting out something, even if its for a blink of an eye!!! If you really like the unit, take it into a repair shop, as it should'nt cost to much to repair. If the units 3 to 6 years old, Maybe its time to think about upgrading to a newer unit??. Good Luck

SOURCE: Kenwood vr-405 receiver
I have the 405 as well. My TV has an optical out and I run that straight to the 405 optical input. I set the input selector to DVD/CD (not DVD)and presto! TV audio out my speakers. It all comes down to the audio connections on your TV.

hello all you need is a good pair of RCA cables.
Use the audio output on the TV
run it to the VIDEO 1 input on the receiver
as for your DVD player vcr etc you can either run them directly to the tv as it will output whatever sound is playing to the receiver.
use the receiver as a video switcher and connect your components directly to it.
remember your receiver will need to be set to the input you use. ie: video 1 / dvd etc..
Hope that helps
