    My system shuts off or freezes after a few minutes of play. I have to power off at the toggle switch and power on a few times to get it to start again. Sometimes it freezes during the "instant theatre" message.

I have been able to greatly reduce the frequency with which this happens on my system by inserting a powerfilter/surgeprotector between the wall outlet and my KEF KIT100. It may help you too.

KEF Audio KIT100 System - I have similar buzzing/clicking.

if you have still the problem, I got the solution from Kef USA. It is somewhat involved in taking the unit apart and replacing a resistor and capacitor. With the instructions supplied any electronic technician or TV repair man can do it in less then 1 hour. email me and I forward the instruction in PDF: Xxel_g@mail.coX . Replace the first X with a and last X with m in my email address.

Yamaha rx-v800 turns off

Sounds like your receiver has a cold solder joint on the power board at a transistor or capacitor. Not a major repair, however, it will probably run $100 or so to pull it apart, hunt it down and fix the problem. Not sure of your problem with the DVDR. Do you have a "line conditioning, surge protection" unit? Not a Power strip or low end monster surge. Panamax, APC, Furman, make line conditioning surge units that keep your power steady and will shut down in case of voltage fluctuation in both directions. They cost from 200 to 2000 depending on the equipment you are protecting. It is a necessary component to any system. Hope this helps.

Scratching and static noise when turned on

Verry common problem with these systems. It is one of the two audio output IC's for the sub. It is best tho to replace them both. Not easy to get to tho. But not
costly for replacements. On the power board there is 4 IC's on one side and 3 1small and 2the same as the other's. Those 2,are the output IC's for the Sub.
The part number for then is TDA7293. The cost about
$6-10 each. Can find on ebay.REPLACE BOTH!!! They sell a kit of 6 for around $25.Sometimes I replace all 6.

Kef instant theatre - kit200

Nice player. I'm not lucky enough to own one myself, but I found this info which might be worth a try:

Kef Kit 100 & Kef Kit 200 Instant DVD Theatre handset hacks 1. Press & hold the "Skip Back" button, "Play" button & "Volume Up" button on the main unit.
2. After a few seconds the front display should display "PAL RESET"
3. Release the "keys.
4. Power off your unit at the mains.
5. After 20 seconds, power on your DVD player, thats it!
