Question about Kenwood VR-616 Receiver

Open Question

No display on Kenwood VR-616 A/V receiver

I have sound but no digital display.

    I discovered that the problem is on the display PC board. Most likely a cold-solder joint because when I press on the boar on the right side (facing the front of the device) the display comes back on.


    Next thing is to access the board so I can find the the area using a magnifier. Then resolder the connection..

SOURCE: Kenwood VR-605 display fading out

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

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.

SOURCE: how to hook up a kenwood audio-video surround

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.

or

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

Does Kenwood VR-616 receiver need preamp to play phono?


Yes it does. It has no dedicated socket for a record deck. You can connect the deck via a magnetic cartridge pre-amp to the Aux jacks.

My kenwood vr-616 keeps cutting off while listining to the radio or watching the dvd, I have plugged the dvd into a different power supply and the dvd keeps playing but the system shuts off and the power...


Hi,

The unit may be overheating and shutting down to protect itself.

Please check the fan grills and make sure they are not clogged up with dust as can often happen to amps and receivers. If that is the case then a vacuum cleaner can be used to remove the dust.

If the unit is inside a cabinet try running it outside the cabinet. If it runs for longer before shutting down then this would indicate that it is overheating.

I had the same problem with my Sony home theater amp/dvd and cleaning out the dust cured the problem.

Please rate my answer if this helps.

Many thanks,

Chris

Receiver makes clicking sound before power shuts off. i checked all speaker connections for shorts per troubleshooting!


What you are hearing is the speaker protection relays. See the link below for a generic explanation of protect mode (the mode your unit is in at the moment.) Update this if you have some test gear and wish to attempt to repair this.

Thanks,
Dan

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.

Connecting an hd-tv


use optical or composite digital audio cable only from tv to receiver because with rca (red and white) you get stereo only

Kenwood VR-405


more info would be nice. If you're using optical, make sure its securely in both the tv and your vr-405 receiver. I have owned the vr-405 since 2000 and i just purchased a sony 32xbr6. HDMI into the TV, optical out to the receiver, it sounds amazing!

VR-606 DTS won't work


All I can tell you is that "CD/DVD" must be selected as the source when using the optical digital input on the VR-606/616. I don't believe it needs more than one input (optical or coaxial) to output DTS sound, assuming the source is outputting DTS in the first place.
