Starting last week, many remote control functions will no longer work. It will ON/OFF, and change DSP mode, but no other functions work. Volume UP/DOWN, and other settings do not follow remote commands.

Re: remote not working
This is a distinct possibily. If the Infrared Receiver in your unit was bad, no remote functions would work. It is the display microprocessor to determine what you, either with the remote, or buttons on the face of the unit, what you wish to do.
If you are interested in having your Kenwood repaired, please look to my website, audioserviceclinic.com. You may contact me there. BTW, I was a Kenwood authorized factory repair center. Thank you.

With no specific model mentioned it's hard to look in a manual for recommendations or visualize what possible switch may be out of place.
Turn the volume control to something medium.
The errant switch, control or condition may change and you will suddenly release the amp's full power and possibly destroying your speakers. If a signal isn't audible at 1/2 volume it's probably not there.
Carefully examine the front panel for clues like a misplaced Source Selection, Mute, Tape Monitor control or Multichannel Analog Input selected.
There is a good chance that a common control may have developed a high-resistance or 'dead' spot through defect or idleness and is causing your symptom. Turn the POWER OFF and operate every control throughout its range a number of times, especially rarely-used ones like Tape Monitors and the Mute control.
Turn the volume to something reasonable and see if that helped.
I too have had mine in storage for a long time, and have unfortunately lost the manual.
I initially had the same issues as you, it seems that we need to set a DSP mode, then play with the channels and boost the output on the sub woofer channel, if you are lucky enough to still have the remote I just remember like 10 mins ago, pressing the " >> " button up the top takes you through some settings (Can't remember the way to do it without the remote :( ), and one of them is sub woofer on and off.
I hope that gets you in the right direction. :) Still trying to work it out myself.
I just started having the same problems with my Onkyo TX-DS575. I have to play with the DSP buttons...the A/B speaker button...and now it has gotten to the point where my family and I lift the receiver up in the front, and slam it back down on the shelf and then hit the DSP buttons again and eventually we get some sound. This unit was already fixed once by Onkyo right after the 2 year warranty ran out for a similar problem. They returned it working...but scratched. This is the second Onkyo receiver that has died an early death within 15 years. I love Onkyo's styling, ease of use and sound, but I found the best way to solve this was by purchasing the Yamaha RX-V861 this week. I am done with Onkyo.
