Sound only comes out of left channel, only dvd player works
Everything set properly originally. Kids got ahold of remote & now the sound comes out of left channel only. Went into system setup and tested speakers, and they all are connected but now the sound only comes out of the left speaker, and all others are silent. In addition when try to switch to tuner. It tells me that I am on the tuner but there is no radio playing, it is still the sound from the dvd player.

Re: sound only comes out of left channel, only dvd player...
I would Initialize Unit back to factory settings by turning off main power switch then hold both 6.1/7.1 surround and direct buttons ( they are next to each other near main power switch) in while turning un main power switch. Hold both buttons until you see all lights light up. Then check functions and setup like you bought it new.
Owners manual also explains how to initialize receiver

check your speaker wiring, make sure both terminals are connected properly. or could just be left speaker is disconnected. and is set in stereo mode which will only play left and right front and Sub, if you have one. try chaning the surround mode to play in multi channel speaker which will send sound to all speakers. i trust your using a Digital audio cable from your source ( cable box, DVD player) if your using analog audio cable you will only get stereo sound, and nothing will ever come out of the rear speaker unless you change the surround mode to multi- channel speaker. also in the setup menu you should be able to perform a speaker setup, make sure all your speakers are able to produce sound. follow speaker setup mode in menu, make sure you have checked the boxes or Yes to speaker you have in your system. then perform calibration and a test tone will come out of each speaker as you select them.
Assuming that you mean Dolby digital 5.1, confirm that you have a center channel properly connected and perform the following;
Using the remote, enter the menu on the receiver and navigate to the selection labeled "LEVEL." Toggle through the selections until you reach the "CENTER CHANNEL". You will be able to use the remote to increase the volume of that channel in .5dB increments.

Here is what you need to do to get back to the original configuration: Setup > Factory Reset by Input, and confirm that you want to reset the settings.
If the reset you require is to correct a more serious issue, you may
want to try an EEPROM reset. If you call Amergence Technology at

I don't see where in your user manual that the kids can change the firmware, here is a link to an online copy of your user manual if you do not have one handy.
Try this: press "Function" and "Mute" on the remote at the same time. This will unlock the channel. Do this if you want to bypass the lock to watch a certain show or channel while leaving the TV locked. All other channels will remain locked and the TV will lock again when it is turned off.
Unlock all of the channels on the TV by entering 0711 or 3308. These are the Jensen factory reset codes that will reset the TV to the original factory settings. By doing this, you will loose any information that you have stored in the TV, such as channel labels and schedules. You will have to program the TV again by going through the entire initial set up.
You need the original remote to change anything in the menus of the set. With a universal remote, you can manualy change the channels, but you cannot sequence them or change any of the setups to have them work automaticaly.
All TV manufactures are like this.
Call the authorized service rep, and order a new remote, or find the original if you want to be able to use your set properly. Don't accept a universal remote, because this will not properly resolve your issue.
The first step is to make sure that all of your speakers are functioning properly and are wired in the correct place. To do this, turn on your TV and receiver, and hit "SETUP" on your remote. Step down and select "Audio" from the list on the left, and select "5.1 Speaker Setup" from the menu on the right. Scroll down to "TEST" and step through each speaker using the right and left arrow keys on your remote, ensuring that each speaker is functioning properly. Exit out of the "SETUP" menu when finished.
Now, when you have a source that you would like to hear on 5.1 channels, but is encoded in 2.1, hit the "SOUND" button on your remote until "PL II MOVIE" or "PL II MUSIC" is displayed on your screen. This stands for Dolby Pro Logic II, and is the way that your receiver multiplexes a 2-channel signal.
