Kenwood KVR-970B audio/video receiver

Bought this unit in the 70s while in Japan, but this is export model for use in USA.
Sound has stopped being fed to speakers on both channels. Digital display still works fine...just no sound being fed to speakers. Fuse is okay.

Kenwood amplifier KA127 the sound stopped and if I switch on/off it says ''muting'' what is that and where can I unmute? No matter what I hit nothing happens.

disconnect the unit from all inputs and outputs. Just you,the unit and the power cord to the unit. No CDs, no speakers, nuthin'!

Turn it on. if it displays the same message, Find Kenwood's service center.
If it operates normally, you had/have a short in the speaker system.

How to plug my fisher rs727 receiver with my kenwood km-106 and sony dvd cdplayer and adc sound shaper 2 eq.

Find the various manuals and read them.

Register and download the manual for free

Keeping in mind this is just an analog Dolby Pro Logic receiver, there are limitations to what it can do sonically. Dolby Pro Logic is NOT 5.1 as I'm sure your DVD and possibly Cable Box are capable of producing.

KM-106 is just a power amp. No mysteries there. Feed it something, attach speakers, duh.

What did you plan to use it for in this scenario? If you want to slave it or drive a separate passive subwoofer with the Fisher as the central control, the best you can do is borrow analog stereo Line Level out from the unused Tape 2 or Video Out, but don't actually select them on the front panel. THAT would disconnect whatever source you were listening to. And you WONT have local control of the volume as you would with a real AV Receiver.

Sony DVD player (what model?). RTFM. I'd just run audio from it to the Fisher and Video to your TV, unless you want ONLY composite video quality.

ADC-SS2: See Figure 5 in the Fisher manual. Hook it where they show the cassette deck, using Line In and Line Out of the SS2. If you want to use a Tape Deck or 2 attach them to the SS-2 in its Tape loops.

Loving the HD tv...have noticed a problem with my surround sound though. My kenwood amp auto sense's dolby digital 5.1 and some BD do work in DD 5.1 but most don't. It says DD5.1 on the package and the...

Your A/V Receiver must have the decoders for the source on the BD and for the newest audio surround sound you should be using a HDMI cable to the A/V receiver because the SPDIF optical or digital coaxial cannot handle the Dolby TrueHD and other newest codecs. Probably you are getting the down-converted audio because of this.

My Kenwood KRFv5300D is working throught the tuner / radio channel but wont play sound from the TV - I have a digitial cable running from the amp to the TV but nothing else - should i have more cords then...

The only way it cCOULD work would be from a Digital Audio Output to a Digital Audio Input.

What is the model of the TV? Does it REALLY output a digital multichannel audio program? TV's aren't generally known for their audio chops and some of us own monitors with NO speakers or sound capabilities. Hence we buy things like Kenwood receivers and better speakers.

I would recommend that you draw the TV-related audio from the same place the TV gets it - Cable / DVD / BD. The audio hookup is simpler and the fewer intervening connnections, the better.

Speaker Buttons not working properly, will work if pressed just right

You have dirt in them by the sound of things. Get some Servisol Video 40 switch cleaner and spray them with it. It's best if you can get at the switches from the inside of the amp. A few presses should see thm back to normal.
You can get the Servisol from Maplin's (UK), Radio Shack (USA), and I have seen it for sale on Amazon.

Hi i have a krf-v5030d and i am having trouble woking out how to connect it to my panasonic 37'' plasma th37px70b and my sky plus box can you help me please .thanks john

Hi John,

I have the same amplifier, a Sky + HD box, an LCD TV an surround speakers. We wont go into the Wii, PS3 and PC also hooked up. Essentially the best way to go (whatever you connect up) is to split the video and audio signals.

Sky: The Sky box has an audio outputs (left and right channel) found at the back of the box. You get some twin audio cables, plug into the back of the Sky box and the other end into the Kenwood Amp (for example we use Video 1). This means that the sound from Sky can be found on Video 1 on the Amp.

You take the video signal (picture) from Sky using a SCART cable and put into the back of your panasonic TV. This does mean that you can watch a picture without the sound and listen without a picture. The Amp remote controls the sound, the Sky / TV remote controls the picture.

You may need to tinker with some settings on the Amp, for example on the front of the Amp you will find a source button, toggle through the 3 or 4 options to give you the right sound. But essentially that should be it. The same process is used for any other things you want to add, like a DVD player, a games console and so on.

Hope this helps.

Regards, Mohammed
