20 Most Recent Kenwood VR-405 Receiver Questions & Answers

I have the 405 and a Samsung 3600 which has onboard DTS Master/ Dolby True HD. Out of the 6 movies I 've watched, only 2 have given me Dolby Digital. Bottom line: If the movie doesn't have DD, you cant get DD on the 405. I thought just about all blu rays had DD but its not so. Its time for us to upgrade!

Try cleaning cleaning all the switches/connections you can. The fact that it sometimes works indicates that the components are good but that you have an intermittent connection somewhere such as a bad solder joint

There is nothing unique to the signal or speaker wires used with this component. ANY hi-fi or electronics shop, online, eBay will have whatever you need. Your choice. Hint: standard 16-gauge lamp cord makes excellent speaker wire. Don't spend a lot on copper cables.

How I fixed this was to get a can of electrical contact cleaner. Any auto parts store or electronics store will carry it. Take the cover off and remove the volume knob. It's responsible for the output volume to the sub. Pry the four silver tabs open and pull apart the knob. You should see some corrosion on the contacts. Use a fingernail file to clean them off now clean it with the contact cleaner. Put it back together and you are ready to go.
