20 Most Recent Kenwood VR-205 Receiver Questions & Answers


I have 2 good qaulity

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.

My vr-205 shuts off right after i turn it on and

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} Its usually not a fault that you will see unless somethings burnt up. This is solid state electronics and you dont see this stuff go bad. But in the meantime try disconnecting the speakers and see if it still goes into shutdown and at the same time have a dc multimeter attached to the speaker outputs. If the unit comes on and you dont see any DC at all or very very little B+ on both speaker terminal sets then you may have a defective speaker. If you do see dc then thats why the protections comming on so you dont blow out your speakers. If you dont have any equipment or dont have any electronics experience I advise then take the unit to a repair person for an proper check. Good Luck

Kenwood KR-V8010 receiver. B speakers are not working. A speakers are

If the B speakers on your Kenwood KR-V8010 receiver are not working while the A speakers are working, there are a few things you can check:
  1. Check the speaker connections: Make sure that the B speakers are connected to the receiver properly. Ensure that the speaker wires are connected securely and that the polarity is correct.
  2. Check the speaker selector switch: The Kenwood KR-V8010 has a speaker selector switch that allows you to choose between A speakers, B speakers, or both. Make sure that the switch is set to the B speaker position.
  3. Check the speaker impedance: Make sure that the impedance of the B speakers is compatible with the receiver. The Kenwood KR-V8010 supports speakers with an impedance of 4 to 16 ohms. If the impedance of the B speakers is too low or too high, it can cause issues with the amplifier.
  4. Check the volume level: Make sure that the volume level is not set too low for the B speakers. If the volume level is too low, it may not be noticeable that the B speakers are not working.
  5. Check the output settings: The Kenwood KR-V8010 has a few output settings that can affect the sound output. Make sure that the settings for the B speakers are not muted or turned off.
If none of these steps resolve the issue, there may be a problem with the amplifier or the B speaker output circuit. In this case, it may be necessary to take the receiver to a professional for repair or maintenance.

Kenwood Kr v KR7060. Play only one speaker

If your Kenwood KR-V7060 receiver is only playing sound through the center speaker, it could indicate a problem with the receiver's internal audio processing or speaker configuration settings. Here are a few things you can try to troubleshoot the issue:
  1. Check the speaker configuration settings. Make sure that the receiver is set to play sound through all speakers, and not just the center speaker. You can check this in the receiver's menu or by consulting the user manual.
  2. Check the speaker wire connections. Make sure that all the speaker wire connections are tight and secure, and that there are no loose wires or frayed connections.
  3. Check the balance and tone settings. Make sure that the balance and tone settings are not set to favor the center speaker, and that the left and right speakers are not muted.
  4. Check the receiver's internal audio processing. Make sure that the receiver's internal audio processing is set to play sound through all speakers, and not just the center speaker.
  5. If the above steps don't solve the problem, it could indicate a more serious issue with the receiver's internal audio processing or speaker configuration settings. It's recommended to contact Kenwood customer service or a professional technician for further assistance.
It's important to follow the manufacturer's instructions and guidelines when performing any maintenance or repairs on the receiver, to ensure the safety and proper functioning of the receiver. It's also important to check the receiver's warranty status and the manufacturer's instructions to ensure that the repair or replacement will not void the warranty. Keep in mind that troubleshooting and repairing electronic equipment can be dangerous if you are not familiar with the proper procedures. If you are not comfortable with performing the troubleshooting yourself, it's best to contact a professional technician for assistance.

I have a Kenwood KR-V7070 and can not get my sub to play. It is hooked up correctly, I just don't know if I have to turn on the sub option on the receiver?

Most likely you will do. Many surround systems have set up procedures redo that if you haven't already tried it.
