Kenwood RD-VH7 cuts out

The stereo suddenly clicks and stops playing through the speakers, as if it's overheating. The CD keeps playing, and you can still listen through the headphones, but it refuses to use the speakers until it's calmed back down again. I've done a lot of fiddling, and experiments with different combinations of the speakers. Any ideas?

Hi all, I just had same problem on my RD-VH7, in fact i have two units, one works perfectly, any trouble, but other had same problem. Click and stop playing speakers. Really it's a "protection" of the system that overheat a lot. I need to comment that i repair it by myself and i recomend a little of knowledge about how desamble and resamble the unit, due to it's very compressed. The solutions is so easy. Simply the speakers terminals inside need be to re-weld them to the main board. Due to the overheating this make the welds maje a "fake contact" (sorry about my english) and the protection circuit activate this desconnection. I made this welding perfectly only on this terminals and now it works perfectly. The good news are that it's not an circuit problem. Hope this info can help all guys. Ciao zebastian_mx@hotmai..com

Some of my speakers arn't playing sound on my HT-E555OW


If you are trying to play a cd, you must manually tell the unit to play it in surround sound. Cd audio defaults to stereo only. Does it do the same thing if you are playing a dvd? If it happens on dvd's as well, then something in the speaker setup menu is wrong.

Only two speakers work when a CD is being played...either MP3 or regular CD's. Why are the other speakers and subwoofer not playing sounds. Model DV7500


You mean a GPX DV7500? I can't find the manual. Do YOU have it? Do all the speakers work during setup or on real multichannel sources?

If you're using analog inputs and NOT selecting any of the DSP modes you will hear just stereo.

The audio keeps going in and out and cuts off. Also I have other devices going into aux in but it doesn't show 5.1 surround it only shows the front L, Front R, and CT speakers in stereo. I want everything...


If you are playing a source that is Stereo such as FM Radio or a CD the sound will not use all 5.1 speakers unless you enable the correct Surround Mode. On the remote there is a button on the lower right of the remote that says SURROUND. You can toggle through the various surround modes with this button the mode you want is Dolby Pro Logic The Pro Logic mode uses the built-in circuit to steer the Left, Center, Right and Mono Surround channel audio signals and uses all five speakers to play both stereo and Dolby Pro Logic program source, such as TV and VCR. You can use this mode with any stereo program source (such as VCR/TV) to enjoy multi-channel sound experience.

Stereo cuts out at half volume.


You don't exactly define what "cuts out" means.... silence, protection or power off?

What makes you think it's thermal in nature?

Have you considered the speaker load impedance may be too low for the amp?

When I play a DVD in the system I can only get the surround sound out of the speakers but no voices. If I play a CD or hook it up to my tv everything is ok.I have tried a number of DVD's and all have the...


sounds like you need to surround modes. There is usually a Stereo, Dolby, DTS, "virtual surround", 4-speaker mode etc..
When you play a CD or connect to TV it likely defaults to playing stereo or virtual surround.

With real surround, almost all of the voices are coming from the center-channel speaker (normally placed closest to the TV).

Also, check to make sure the center channel is connected properly.

System stops playing


Hi Big Belchie

Sounds a bit like it is overheating. It is in a cabinet? Check that cooling vents on top and sides of the unit are not getting obstructed. hehehe sometimes parties are responsible for those piles of cd covers that block off the vents. How hot does it feel when it stops working?

Surround Sound Speakers and AUX


You have the mode selector for the surround sound on the wrong switch setting. Look at the owners manual to see what setting you need for synthensized suround. Go to http://www.samsung.com if you need an owners manual. You will find it with a little bit of searching. Good Luck
