Question about Kenwood VR-705 Receiver

Open Question

I just bought the VR-705-SA (same as the 705 except with component video out) and there is no sound coming out this receiver what so ever. It powers on alright but it does not show any of the surround sound speakers, and there is no sound from it anyway. I am not using the video outs at all (tried it) but I have all three digital inputs and two analog inputs in use and nothing is working. I already tried the reboot suggested by the manual but it refuses to send out any sound. Please help me.

SOURCE: receiver works with digital signal input jack only.

Are you talking about the 6 channel input with all RCA jacks? Please explain a little better, it is very hard to know how you have it connected without a very good description since I can not put my eyes on it. You may need to check the settings, it may have the rears muted. More information from you will help me to be able to help you.

SOURCE: Kenwood VR6070 speaker/amp problems

unit needs repair. Look at the b speakers. Conect a speaker or two to the B position. If you have no sound than your surrond sound is ok and the unit is bad. Sound comes directly into the b speaker and not threw the surrond system. My 6070 has a cold start up problem. no sound. time to purchase a new one. to costly to repair.

SOURCE: Kenwood VR-305 receiver surround speakers will not work

make sure that all input cables are in the correct positon also make sure that any inputs you are using don't have a macrovision in them that will also kill your sound due to copyright laws and stuff but main thing check all wires coming in to receiver and if you need more inputs go to walmart and get a rca splitter basicaly its a 1 in two out connection to add more cables in the input

I just bought a Panasonic plasma tv model TCP50S2 and I can't seem to get my Kenwood receiver to work with it. Do I need to set the remote to the Panasonic tc? If so does anyon know the code number? I...


I assume you want the TV sound through the receiver?
You need to connect the TV digital out to the receivers digtal in.
This is probably an optical connection.
Then you need to switch the receiver to the correct input. You may also need to tell the receiver what kind of connection is made: Optical or coaxial, if it doesn't detect this automaticly.

Connect a Sony SA-W3800 powered subwoofer to a kenwood receiver


Yes. It needs to know you have a subwoofer or it won't send low frequencies out to one. Then you have to calibrate its level to match the rest of your speakers. Hit the SETUP section in the manual (available at retrevo.com).

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.

Connection problems


If the CD player has left and right outputs and the receiver has those inputs for a CD or DVD then there's a start.
Speakers...match them up to positive and negative with no power to either component.

Wont Power On..


I had the same problem. It's a voltage regulator (maybe 7812 or 7912) problem. In my case the problem was cracked soldering joints on the little PCB where the IC was soldered. Try this: open the case; on the sides of the big heatsink are attacched 2 IC Voltage Regulators. Check these ones for properly solder. After that I can power up my amp without problems.

I have another problem: now my surround speaker and sub are very very low volume even at 100%. Can someone help me?

Onkyo 705


You have probably done this, but have you changed the video settings in the setup menu to have the tv using HDMI out? I believe it is under the first option when the menu comes up.
