Question about Kenwood VR-505 Receiver

1 Answer

Yeah...the left channel not working...

I've tried the cables, the inputs, every mode. Doesn't work despite what all I've done. A friend said it was probably the sound board. Disassembling would be the answer? Thanks for any help, sir.

If you know how to check electronic components, have good soldering skills, and have the proper equipment then disassembling and checking it out would be the right thing to do.

But if you have no experience with this kind of stuff you really should take it to a service center and let a professional look at it. I have seen on many occasions when people who disassemble their equipment and attempt to repair it, but have no experience at this sort of thing end up causing more problems than they started with.

It is also dangerous, you can be shocked by the electricity or cause a fire. And if you do no understand the terms it would be very difficult for you to understand what to look at.

Your friend who said it was the soundboard is wrong, there is no board in those Kenwood's called a "soundboard", so I would not be so quick to listen to him about opening it up.

I can't get my Comcast cable channels to display on my Hitachi HDTV..how should I fix this?


A very well written question and I think you have provided your own answer.

this set uses a antenna switching assembly and they do fail. It could also be a bad tuner--note that the other owner got blu ray and such on it which are not via the coax fitting.

If your box has audio/video output jacks (like the blu ray) connect them to one of the rear audio/video inputs on rear of set and select that input on the set---box will then be used for channels but connection will not be via the coax but via that input.

If the box does not have those outputs get another--most providers do not charge for a box with those outputs on it.

If works you are just bypassing the tuner where your problem seems to be---those antenna networks are no longer available from Hitachi.

Dish tv 2 works but only very fuzzy on channel 56 dvr


ssmike1,

It sounds like you may have just switched off the channel to view satellite.

The channel for satellite is based on the connection you're using. If you're using a coax connection, it should be on channel 3/4 or 62. If you're using video cables like RCA/HDMI then you'll need to switch the input. On the upper left of the remote should be a TV/Input button. Make sure you're in TV mode and press that to see if picture returns.

If the problem continues let me know and I would be happy to try some additional steps!

My RCA XL100 is hooked up to cable and works perfectly fine. We've had it for ages and the picture is clear, sound is beautiful, and it gets along fine with my universal remote. There's just one...


Some of their very old sets the video input was located on channels in the 90's; Try scrolling down from 99 to 90 to see if you locate the video input; this is just the way they did things in the older sets.

Connecting Ps3 with philips tv (full hd) when i got hd cable in, and click to switch so the ps3 uses hd to show things and i than switch over to the channel i plugin the hdmi cabel it gives blac kscreen


If it's the first time using your PS3, use the composite cables that came with it. Turn on the PS3 go to video settings and switch the input to HDMI. After you've switched to HDMI, turn the PS3 off and connect your HDMI cable, go back to video settings and change the resolution to 1080p. If this isn't the first time you've used HDMI for your PS3, make sure your T.V. is on the correct input. If the T.V. is on the correct input, try switching the HDMI cable to a different input. If that doesn't work try using a different HDMI cable, testing different HDMI connections if you're still getting the black screen. If none of those work then it's probably a problem with the PS3, but just to make sure try plugging something else with HDMI to see if that works. If another HDMI device works, then it's your PS3, if it doesn't then it could be a problem with your HDMI connections on the T.V.

I plugged in my PS3 using an HDMI cable and i get no feedback


If you just bought the PS3 use your composite cables that came with the system. Turn the PS3 on and go to the video settings, set up video input to HDMI. After you've done that plug your HDMI back into your PS3 and try turning it on. If that works go back to video settings and change the resolution to 1080p. If that doesn't work make sure your T.V. is on the same input that the HDMI cable is plugged in. If it is and still doesn't work try switching to a different HDMI port. If switching to a different HDMI port doesn't work try a new HDMI cable. If the new HDMI cable doesn't work then there is a problem with the port on the PS3 which would require a repair.

No stereo signal out from yamaha p 2500 s


It's unclear what type of connectors are on the end of the cables(s) coming from your computer.

This amp only works with mono 1/4" TRS and XLR connectors, not standard RCA connectors.

Did you try the Right one in the Left Channel to see if the Left Channel worked?

Refer to the following manual and read up on the connectors (page 7) and the use of the Stereo/Parallel/Bridge Switch (page 8). When it is NOT in Stereo Mode the unit only uses the Right Channel controls and input.

http://img3.musiciansfriend.com/dbase/pdf/man/m_480824.pdf

STEREO/PARALLEL/BRIDGE switch
Use this switch to select the operating mode.
• STEREO mode
Channels A and B operate independently (as with a conventional
stereo amplifier). The Channel A input goes to the Channel
A output jacks, and the Channel B input goes to the
Channel B output jacks.
• PARALLEL mode
The Channel A input signal is output through both the Channel
A and Channel B output jacks. The Channel B input jacks do
not function. Channel A and B volumes can be independently
adjusted.
• BRIDGE mode
The Channel A input signal is output from the BRIDGE output
jacks. To adjust the volume, you must use the Channel A volume
control knob.

Left channel not working


The first thing I would check has already been done, the only other thing would be fuses. I am preety sure there is a protection fuse at ever channels output to protect against a dead short. I am sure you have already fixed this problem but I thought I would give it a try. Let me know what you found.
