Question about Kenwood VR-407 Receiver

2 Answers

Subwoofer shutdown The subwoofer has power, the green light is on, so it is not in the standby mode, but no sound comes from the subwoofer. I hooked up another subwoofer and it works fine. So the problem is in the sub itself. Is there anyway to "reset" the sub?

    I even replace the subwoofer speaker which went bad. Still having the same problem - all the lights show 'ready' but nothing comes out, yet it will still rumble when going through the test mode

    Sorry, didn't mean to louse up this thread with the ill-posted "solutions."

    Basic question:

    If a sub is producing sound when a receiver is in test-tone mode, but not when that receiver is processing audio from other sources, is it safe to say the problem is with the receiver? Specifically, with the internal device that should be separating low frequencies and sending them to the sub output?

    And if so, what might a fix entail?

    I bought the whole system from a friend, I listened to it work for over a year. After I set it up at my home I haven't had the sub work yet. Same as you guys, rumbles, green lights on, but nothing.

  • Anonymous Mar 28, 2009

    Exactly as the other submittals; no sound from audio works only during the setup

    I have the same issue as the others Subwoofer not geting a signal from audio but works during the setup.

    I have the same problem, but it does not rumble in test mode. Green light is on, and I hear it click on when I power on the receiver, but no sound from the subwoofer.

I'm having the same issue as pdoug: Sub rumbles in test mode, doesn't produce sound otherwise. Which makes me suspect it's the receiver itself -- the filter (or whatever) it is that should be separating the bass signal and sending it to the sub is not working. At least that's my guess.

Either way... this sucks.

Is there a on of switch and is the green or red light to be on

There is no main AC power switch on the BU series; it's in standby mode whenever it's plugged in.

When playing music normal LED color should be green. After no signal for 10 minutes or so it will turn back to Red (Standby)

No sound coming out of my Onkyo SKW-200 subwoofer

A subwoofer is just really a mono amp for the signal. As with all amps if you touch the audio section/parts with a small screwdriver, you should hear a buzz from the speaker. (Follow the audio wires to be certain you are on the audio section). This can be used for testing the amp section. If you get no buzz or noise (anywhere) at all then it's power supply could be playing up. If you have a multimeter you can test it looking to see if it is getting power. Allways suspect any part that is on a heatsink. Before removing any suspect you can put the part numbers into Google to see if you can get them and it will give you a clue to cost.
PS don't short any parts when you touch with a screwdriver, and don't put it on the power parts.

AR SW-30 subwoofer doesn't switch to standby mode when off

Disconnect its input cable to see if a true lack of signal lets it go to sleep. If not, it has a bug. Otherwise, you probably have some sort of signal present on the sub cable.

Monitor Audio FB212 buzzing

Apparently there is an issue with the 10000uF 80V capacitors. They are poor quality ones and the issue is that the dielectic forms hydrogen internally which eventually blows the dielectric out.

Dont know how to turn it on

Just plug it in to an outlet. The lights on the front should be red (or standby mode). When it gets a good sound signal, it turns green (that's when it's on). It does not have a power switch.
