Question about Kenwood VR-205 Receiver

1 Answer

Hi, I have a problem with my kenwood vr-205 receiver. My problem is that, my original remote that came with the system doesn't work at all. I put brand new batteries to see if it was the problem, but it wasn't. So the next step I did was purchased another brand new remote controller for my model, and that also didn't solve the problem. I don't know what happened, everything was working fine before. I'm now assuming that maybe the sensor started to fail on the receiver side. I would be appreciated if some one can help me fix this problem, so I can use my remote control, so I don't always have to get up to go play my system or even change station or etc. Thanks, Ren

Test the remote by using the camera in your cell phone...you should see the IR lights flashing when you operate the remote...these kenwood receivers are notorious for having cold solder joints on the IR receiver...resolder joints like this http://mysite.verizon.net/amp68/ or http://home.comcast.net/~jcoxdesigns/Kenwood/index.html

You're guessing. That is exactly the wrong thing to do. Get the manual.

"[D]vd 6 channel input" is for a 6-channel analog input as the name implies. I doubt you even have a source that HAS 6 analog channel outputs.

Speakers are OUTPUTS of the amplifers' speaker posts. Any one can work ANYwhere.

And that bi-wire capability, IF the speakers have it - pretend it isn't there.

Hi William
Assuming that you have tried changing the batteries in the remote (and put the batteries in the right way round) then the chances are that your remote control unit has failed.
Original Kenwood remotes can be bought here http://kenwoodremote.com/

Universal remote controls are widely available in electrical stores and on the internet. You will need to find the right set up code - you should be able to find the code on the same site.

I have a kenwood vr 406 and a kenwood rcr0609 remote. After some time, the remote stopped working , so we got a new remote. This worked about a day. The remote itself seems to be working, because I can...


Kenwood receivers recently have a commonly known problem with its receiving IR diode within the receiver, to fix this you will have to re-solder the connection on the receiver panel within the faceplate of your kenwood receiver.

Instructions to fix it are at the following link if you are willing to open up your receiver and repair it. lots of people have reported this fix as successful so it is widely believed to be a design flaw in the VR line-up of receivers as it has occured in all the VR families so far.

good luck.

there's a good chance it's the receiver and not the remote. Just fixed mine this afternoon with help from this blog.

I'm not sure of the exact fix, but when these components were assembled a few of the connections involving the remote sensor were not saudered. An easy fix if you know where to look.
