I have a Kenwood stereo of model number UD-505. I have attached two main speakers to the unit, as instructed in the owner's manual. I have then attached a centre speaker to the surround speakers port The speaker is hooked up to my TV through an RCA connection. I've been having a problem where whichever mode I choose, Dolby Surround, Pro Logic or 3-Speaker, I can't get the speakers to all work together. The large speakers work and the small centre speaker doesn't or the other way around. This speaker system in about 10 years old, so I haven't had any luck finding help anywhere else. The three speakers do work together on FM channels, so what input would you suggest?
Fingers crossed and thanks in advance.

This could be due to a faulty speaker relay (if your unit uses one). Normally, the unit will "wait" a couple of seconds after you turn the unit on. Then you will hear a "click" and the sound will begin coming through the speakers. If the relay is faulty, it would cause the problem you describe.
I found the manual & have pasted the url here for you. some things to keep in mind. according to the instruction manual this unit is rated @ 500W, not 1000W. Also to maximize the output you should use 2ohm speakers for stereo applications. Also make sure if you need to extend the power wire, use 10 gauge copper & make sure it's connected to the car battery thru a 60 amp fuse. Also make sure the ground is attached to a clean metal frame or body part by using a bolt & nut not merely a screw. Good luck. If you need additional assistance let me know.
goto the auto parts store and purchase a pair of stereo keys, fascia adaptor and wiring harness (you may need to get fascia and harness from a car audio store or circuit city.)
Then use the stereo keys to remove the factory stereo. Push them into the small holes on the front of the stereo push them slightly outwards and pull to release the stereo. Unplug all the connectors from back keeping track of where they fall.
Insert wiring harness into the stock wiring
attach fascia in regards to its packaged instructions.
Place cage from new stereo into the hole in the dash using the tabs on cage to secure it,
Attach stereo to other end of new harness along with aerial (may need adaptor for this also depending on the new head unit.)
Insert stereo into new cage and voila nice new stereo.
