Re: best picture and sound
Connect coaxial cable connector from your cable service company to cable box-----in jack. 2-using coaxial cable connect cable box out to tv-vhf/uhf jack. connect projection tv audio out (var-fix)jacks to avr 230 line in.

Disconnect all speaker connections and rca cables. Leave power, ground and remote wires intact. Try turning on again. If you still have a protection light your amp is faulty. Hopefully you have warranty. Double check all connections .A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you. Worth fixing.
Check the speakers, make sure no starnds of wire are touching ony of the other terminals. Disconnect one speaker at a time and turn on the unit to see when and if the unit stops going in to protect mode. When it and if it doest start to stay on then you have removed the bad spkr. Unhook all of then and hook up the bad one only to verify that is whats causing ur problem...
could be the memory chip, I used to see this a lot with Panasonic tv's that would lose all memory settings ie channel and tuning memory, with the intermittent vol problem it sounds like dry joints in the amp section, always check the components around the heatsinks for dry joints, especially capacitors and transisters, pay to get your hands on a service manual showing all the layout and different componets.
I have the same amplifier, a Sky + HD box, an LCD TV an surround speakers. We wont go into the Wii, PS3 and PC also hooked up. Essentially the best way to go (whatever you connect up) is to split the video and audio signals.
Sky: The Sky box has an audio outputs (left and right channel) found at the back of the box. You get some twin audio cables, plug into the back of the Sky box and the other end into the Kenwood Amp (for example we use Video 1). This means that the sound from Sky can be found on Video 1 on the Amp.
You take the video signal (picture) from Sky using a SCART cable and put into the back of your panasonic TV. This does mean that you can watch a picture without the sound and listen without a picture. The Amp remote controls the sound, the Sky / TV remote controls the picture.
You may need to tinker with some settings on the Amp, for example on the front of the Amp you will find a source button, toggle through the 3 or 4 options to give you the right sound. But essentially that should be it. The same process is used for any other things you want to add, like a DVD player, a games console and so on.
Hiya check all the speakers are working and one is not faulty. Can do this by checking one at a time connected to the amp. You could also possibly isolate the faulty channel ( if it is that) by disconnecting until the problem stops.
If not there then unfortunately it will have to go in for repair . Best of luck
Servisol make a wide range of switch cleaners, get one that doesn't attack plastic and try it. If it keeps coming back the problem, then the only cure is new switches.
Servisol is sold at places such as Maplin.
check the wattage of the speakers, they could be drawing too many watts from your amplifier, if you plug in a speaker that's more than the channel, it could harm your amp.
for example a 200 watt stereo, with 4 channels that equals 50 watts per speaker.
