The most common problem found on FixYa for Audio Video Receiver's is:

My receiver say's "Protect" or turns on then off. What's wrong? Seven times out of ten it is a shorted speaker or speaker wire. To determine your exact problem, the first step is to disconnect all speaker wires "at your receiver" Next: Turn the receiver back on. If your receiver still says "protect" or turns off, it needs to be serviced. If your receiver stays on; reconnect your speakers one at a time and power back up after each speaker. You may find that after reconnecting all speaker wires it works! Most commonly the small braids of wire from the + to the - have touched and have caused the problem. In some instances, you noticed the problem only when turning the volume up. either way, make sure the exposed wires to your receiver are no longer than 1/2" long and are completely under the screw down terminal or slide in. When you've found the wire or speaker with the problem, your receiver will go back into "protect" At this point, disconnect the wire from the speaker at the speaker that may be causing the problem then test again.* Note* Make sure speaker wires do Not touch each other as this Will cause a short! If you turn the receiver back on and it stays on, you now know the problem is in your speaker itself. To test your speaker, you will need a multimeter. Set it to ohms resistance and touch the speaker terminals, if there is a short internally the meter will read "1......" If it's an analog meter, it will peg to the right. There's your problem. Now, within any speaker there are quite a few possibilities as to what could be causing the problem. Most common is a blown coil and the speaker needs to be replaced. Some speakers have internal crossovers (usually floor standing speakers) and may have a shorted or burnt board (usually very visible brown burn marks on the board) and can possibly be repaired if your handy with a soldering iron. Now, if you disconnect the speaker wire at the speaker and it still says "protect" Check your wire for the obvious cut or nail thru the wire if possible. If your system has wiring that runs behind walls, you may need to use your meter again. Disconnect the wire at both ends, keep the ends separated, put your meter on ohms resistance and touch probes to the + and - wires at one side. If the meter pegs to the right or reads "1...." the wire is shorted and needs to be replaced or repaired at the short. Hope this helps.

Kenwood vr606 reciever shutting off subwoofer and centre speaker simultaneously after few minutes/seconds of powering on. WHat's the cause?


The receiver's out put sections are grouped in pairs. Front left and right in one output, rear left and right in second output, and center channel and sub output on the third. Sounds like a semiconductor or semiconductors have gone bad in the center & sub output.

The subwoofer output on my Kenwood VR-606 has suddenly stopped working. I have tried the "setup" several times, turning the subwoofer off and back on. Also, when I first power up the system, it emits a low...


It sounds like the problem is not with your VR-606. If you hear a hum from the sub, the problem is more likely to be in the sub's built-in power amplifier. However, it is worth resetting the amplifier to factory presets. To do this, unplug the power cable from the mains supply and reconnect whilst holding down the power on/standby key. If the hum persists, connect any powered speaker to the sub-out socket, power on and listen for the hum. If no hum then suspect the powered sub amp. Turn the sub on with no connection to the Kenwood VR-606. If hum persists, the sub has a problem and will need to be replaced or repaired. By the way, you said there is a low frequency hum through the 'speakers' for about 30 mins. Is that all speakers or just the sub? Hope this helps.
Cheers, Don.

I own a kenwood surround sound system (VR-606) when i turn it on then in 3 seconds it shuts off then the power/standby button flashes, any idea of whats wrong?


Generally speaking, an amp protects itself from heat, shorts and overloads by refusing to turn on or stay on.


Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.


You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.


If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.


If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced hands-on tech.

Without additional equipment it can't be done. As i see your VR-606 pure analog device, and you trying to somehow use 5.1 sound from HD STB that is on HDMI put on RCA connectors of your VR-606. It is impossible without converter from HDMI to Analog audio or something likethis, best way to buy new receiver with HDMI input and TV neither Receiver with HDMI out oportunity. Then you will have your home cinema. In your current setup probably you can play only with stereo from your stb.

Resetting a Kenwood vr 606


When you say 'plugging it in', do you mean power or signal?

You have a major clue: external components affect it. Try to figure out which one(s). Then abalyze what's different about it(them). Are different power sources (outlets) involved? Only certain cables? Sometimes different AC plug polarities can cause the relative grounds in the units to be diffrerent and when you join them with RCA cables they'll have hum or static problems.

Another thing: don't overload its convenience outlets with powering external gear. It only supports 150 watts.

How to connect my kenwood vr-606 digital audio to my tv... i tried to connect digital audio cable from my tv digital audio output to kenwood vr-606 receiver digital audio in and it's not working.. what did...


Your TV is NOT an audio source by itself. It's job is to make pretty visual stimulus for your eyes, not your ears. Everything IT hears comes from somewhere else like a DVD, BluRay, Cable Box, right?

Get the absolute best TV-related audio directly from the digital audio outputs of each source you're watching, not the TV.

Kenwood VR-606 - No display


a VR 606 is a 5.1 unit and currently has a market value of under $100 (used fexcellent condition) would not be worth investing over $100 to replace a dead LCD screen.

Check craigslist for a deal on a used unit in your area.

Remember its buyer beware, people tend to think their outdated stuff is worth more than it really is. A good tool is to look up "completed" ebay listings for the model you are considering to gauge if you are getting a good deal.

There are also several websites that have market value info available but usually the require a fee and are usually used by pawn shops, insurance companies etc..

How do I connect my Sony PS3 with HDMI and component sound with Kenwood VR-606


Component outputs do not provide sound. Component CABLES however can be used as a rather equal alternative to analog cables for audio.

Your receiver does not have connections for component, nor HDMI. You can however still connect your PS3 to it for audio by any one of its three digital inputs. It only has S-video and does not upconvert video signals so I recommend against making any video connections to it. Connect the PS3 video directly to your television for whichever video input it is compatible with High definition video. This method will always provide the best picture.

VR-606 DTS won't work


All I can tell you is that "CD/DVD" must be selected as the source when using the optical digital input on the VR-606/616. I don't believe it needs more than one input (optical or coaxial) to output DTS sound, assuming the source is outputting DTS in the first place.
