Without knowing the model number of the kenwood reciever and what DVD input (analog or digital) you are using, I can only give you my best guess at what is causing this.

If you are using analog input (RCA cable), try connecting another analog source into the DVD input and see if that cuts out. if so, the problem is in the reciever and may just be a broken solder connection on the RCA input jack, if not the problem is in the DVD player.

If you are using the digital input you may have a problem on the DSP board. This is a very hard problem to troubleshoot to a componet level and many times the entire DSP board must be replaced (if it is available, which is rarely with Kenwood).

DSP board repairs are all very difficult repairs for any service center.

The only way to really know what the problem is, if you have eliminated the DVD player as the problem is to take it to a service center to get checked out.

I will be happy to help you more if you can get me the model number of the receiver and also try to check the DVD player for this problem.

More triage first.

Which unit cuts off? Signal Cables won't make either do that. Either will run just fine even without them.

CD players die.

Speaker issues or shorts will pose problems for the amp.

Do you have the manuals? If not, seek them.

Hi,

The unit may be overheating and shutting down to protect itself.

Please check the fan grills and make sure they are not clogged up with dust as can often happen to amps and receivers. If that is the case then a vacuum cleaner can be used to remove the dust.

If the unit is inside a cabinet try running it outside the cabinet. If it runs for longer before shutting down then this would indicate that it is overheating.

I had the same problem with my Sony home theater amp/dvd and cleaning out the dust cured the problem.

Please rate my answer if this helps.

Many thanks,

Chris

Kenwood 107VR rec and No vol from Sub Output w/ menu Opt On


In the setup menu are the speakers set to large or small? On some receivers if you have it set to large all the bass is directed to the right-left fronts.
On my pioneer receiver if the speakers are set to large the sub-pre-out only works if the receiver is in a surround mode, if its in stereo mode and the speakers are set to large the sub-pre-out is dead. If the speakers are set to small the sub-pre-out works all the time.
Also, some receivers won't send a signal to the sub-pre-out if there is no LFE discreet signal info from the dolby digital or dts bitstreem.
For example I have several older dvd's that light up the L C R SL SR icons on my receiver, but don't light up the LFE icon. I have other older dvd's that just light up the L and R icons meaning they are only recorded in stereo like a vhs tape recorded in dolby surround.
In my basement I also have a kenwood dolby digital receiver.
I've noticed that when a dvd only lights up the left and right icons the pioneer will automatically switch to dolby pro logic surround. The kenwood will only send the signal to the left and right fronts (stereo). If I manually switch it (kenwood) to dolby pro logic I'll get sound from all the speakers just like the pioneer, but it does'nt do it by itself.
Most receivers that have a tape monitor won't work in surround mode with the tape monitor on. The pioneer will let me use the tape monitor with dolby pro-logic but won't pass through a dolby digital signal with the monitor on.
Hope this helps.

Kenwood VR-410 Reciever cuts out at high volume


Very possibly a problem with overdriving the speakers and the breaker inside the receiver is "popping" in order to protect the outputs from being fried. check the ohm rating of the receiver to the speakers and lok for damage to any of your speaker wires. also make sure the wires are not crossed or touching in the back connections to the equiptment.

Kenwood VR-407 always stays in Stereo mode


You will need to go to audio set up and make sure it is set up to play with a center chanel if you have one as well as the surrounds. You can also only have side a speakers selected when trying to use surround. If you have b selected it will play in stereo only

Surround sound not working properly


Hi guys,

Make sure that your sound aka dvd or whatever is set for a DTS (5.1) set your dvd at bitstreem and your receiver to automatic detection. When your movie will start you will heard your Receiver Relay//Mosfet clicking and a Red led will say DTS once you get there you will be able to select your Doldy digital surround the real one.

Ps: if you want to reset your VR-309 to default HOLD the POWER button for 5 sec unplug it from the wall hold it for 5sec while unplugged and replug it will be rested to default.
