Question about Kenwood VR-407 Receiver

1 Answer

The remote for my kenwood vr-407 receiver always chooses to work, and then randomly chooses not to work, and then chooses to work again. sometimes opening the battery cover and rotating the batteries a little bit will get the remote up and running, but then it'll give out after a minute or two. so far, I have no reliable solution to this. any help?

"Dead" Remotes Can Be Saved

How to Re-Start Your "Dead" Remote Control

This only takes about a minute and will restart 1 in 3 "Dead" Original Remote Controls. Good Luck!

-----------------------------

Step 1- Pull the batteries out of the remote and leave them out until Step 4.


Step 2- Press and release each and every button one at a time on the remote control until every button has been pressed and released at least once!


Step 3- If your remote has slide switches, you must move the switch to each position then repeat the button pushing in Step 2.


(When you're done, be sure to put the slide switch in the correct position to operate the unit the remote came with!)


Step 4- Put the batteries back into the remote, being very careful to install them correctly.

New batteries should be used if you're not sure about the old ones.


Step 5- Try the remote.


Special Note:


If you have a digital camera, camcorder or camera phone you can test the remote to see if it is emitting a signal. Face the remote towards the lens of the digital unit until you can see the front of the remote. Depress any button on the remote. You should see a light (steady, blink or flashing) being emitted from the remote. If you do then the problem might not be the remote but the sensor on the unit.


If it works, Great!

If not, it's time to call 1-800-Remotes or use this website to order a new remote.

I have a VR-407 reciever and I am unable to get my CD/DVD rear outputs to work. I am hooking up a DP-3020 and I can get it to work in the Audio L/R jacks in the front. Is there something that I need to do...


A Kenwood VR-407 is a receiver and has an INPUT pair for CD/DVD, not outputs. Plug ANY functioning audio source (except a turntable) into it and select it on the front panel.

If your DP doesn't work on either I'd suspect something is wrong with IT.

I have a kenwood k-stat home receiver and it is stuck on mute. i dont have a remote with it and was wondering what button to push where it will get off mute.


hello, if you dont have the user manual you can get from this link
http://www.retrevo.com/support/Kenwood-VR-407-Receivers-manual/id/480ag200/t/2/
according to the manual i think you have turned of speakers, if so you can turn them on again.
as the users manual says it should be the 11th button group, you find this pair of buttons in the left side next to the power botton, you might have turned off speakers.

I am connecting an amplifier to my VR-407 to accomodate more speakers I have installed throughout my home. Where do I connect the amplifier?


Connect the amplifier input to the VR-407 using the receiver's REC OUT jacks for the MD/TAPE input on the back panel. This is a fixed line-level output for recording, and will work fine for driving the additional amp.

Sub woofer output port does not seem to work on my kenwood VR 407, checked sub woofer on another system - works fine, any easy solutions?


Is the 407 set up to drive the unknown sub. It's not just plug n play.

The manual will guide you, around page 15. Also refer to your subwoofer manual. Try retrevo.com for that one.

Remote problem


It sounds like an intermittant Infared sensor problem or there is an intermittant solder connection between the sensor and the controler chip. Good Luck
