Kenwood VR 5700

Few months ago, my VR5700 stopped outputting any sound at all. All of the connections have been checked and there is no problem there. If there is a fuse on the output, where would I find this? Any other suggestions or fixes? No setting will produce any sound. It does tune the TV to the correct station.

SOURCE: No sound from my VR-507

My Kenwood1.gif VR-507 had been working great. I hadn't changed anything. I hadn't even moved it. It just suddenly stopped producing sound. It didn't just stop while it was on. I had turned it off and when I turned it back on, nothing. I tried running the speaker setup to see if it would output pink noise, I could hear the test sound, but I couldn't hear any audio from the TV or DVD player..

Help. :-(

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.

I have a Kenwood vr 5700 and while i have it playing it will go into the phono mode and i have to reset it .Any idea of why its doing this?


I'd suspect an other remote or a spurious random infrared source is doing it. Block the infrared eye on the receiver and see if that makes it stop. Then look for the source of the command.

Cannot get the receiver to connect to a newer


It would be the rare TV that originated anything approaching the sound quality of any other audio source in your home or could process digital multichannel audio anywhere near as well as the Kenwood. What model TV did you say this was? Its internal audio controls could also be part of the problem.

TV-related audio is best derived from as close to its source as possible. Your cable, satellite DVD, BD all have superior digital multichannel audio outputs. Why would you want to filter them through the TV first?

Those sources may also have HDMI which would be great for the TV; they also have standard RCA stereo outputs, each of which could be suitable to run to the TV's RCA inputs if you only want to watch news or weather with lo-fi sound.

Bottom line recommendation: BEST video to the TV; best audio to the Kenwood.

Centre speaker


The controls I would check are speaker set-up and configuration for a multi-channel sound, be sure to enable center channel YES/NO option and trim center channel level output.

Probably an issue with the switching power supply or possibly a shorted output. There are various protection circuits that will cause that. Most suspect is the SMPS (switch mode power supply) fault detection. (Check your output for a short though, i.e.shorted speaker wires)
