Question about Kenwood VR-505 Receiver

Dolby Digital Has Stopped Working

My reciever suddenly stopped playing the dolby digital track on DVDs. The sound comes out in stereo mode. I have a kenwood vr505 reciever.
I tried a DTS DVD and the reciever recognized the audio track and played it in proper DTS mode. When I tried the dolby digital track, it reverted to straight stereo.
All the speakers are working correctly, I ran the setup and they all play properly.
I tried multiple discs, all with the same result. I tried connecting the DVD player with optical and coxial cable, no difference.
I don't want to have to pick up a new receiver.... Any thoughts?

There isn't such a button on the reciever... at least if there is, it's not obvious. Where would such a button be. There is a small red LED light that comes on when dolby digital is working. That's about it. There is no mention of THX anywhere on the receiver

How do i get dolby digital to work on my kenwood vr0405 reciever?


Make sure your source is playing something that has been recorded in dolby digital, not all dvd's and tv boxes transmit dolby digital. what is your source?

Right now my reciever will only play with two speakers (L and R). How do I get the 5.1 DTS back?


Are you using single digital coaxial or optical digital or the stereo RCA cable.
You might have that buttons on the remote for surround,2channel,3channel or 5.1 channel. orGo to the DVD's setup menu and click on "Audio Setup" or on "Languages" if there is no Audio Setup option and choose "Dolby Digital 5.1." (If you have a5.1, 6.1 or 7.1 system select "Dolby Digital EX" if it is an available option.) Depending on the age of the disc, the "Audio Setup" on the DVD menu may give you several choices: "5.1 Channel Surround Sound" or "Stereo Playback." If it's an old DVD, it might even say Dolby AC-3 (the professional designation for Dolby Digital 5.1). New DVDs may offer "Dolby Digital 5.1" and "Dolby Digital 2.0," the latter being stereo. Some of the disc menus offer only "Surround Sound" or "Stereo" options.

No dolby digitaL ON BLU-RAY FIMLS played thro a ps3,


prologic is a form of dolby digital, the 4.0 or 5.1 (versions I and II respectively) to be exact. the type of dolby version is determined by the source disk. the reciever may expand a dolby digital signal into 7.1 but it is actually a 5.1 standard, as is prologicII

Toshiba HD-A30 won't play digital sound with HD DVDs


Try checking your audio output in the setup screen of dvd player. Try setting Digital Out HDMI to Auto, if it isn't already. See if that helps.

RCA RT2280 surround sound mode button wont select 5.1 dolby digital mode.


I had the same problem and this is what I did to fix it. Assuming that all of your equipment is powered on, (tv, blu-ray/dvd, rca receiver) you'll need to go into your dvd players audio menu and select the dolby digital audio.
Once you do this, the digital signal is sent to your receiver from the dvd. The receiver should automatically set itself to the dolby digital preset. If it doesn't, press the surround button until you reach it. I found part of this information here. And the rest was personal experience.
Also, it depends on if the disc format is in dolby 5.1. I hope this helps you.

Problem with Dolby Digital mode


If it is a new DVD that may be a problem, as signal changes may be frustrating this old machine... but it is likely the cabling from the DVD player to the reciever. Are you on the right channels/settings? is the optical cable and digital cable recieving digital output from your DVD player? Try changing those settings and you should be in good shape Thanks! good luck!

No sound playing DVDs


Is it connected to 5.1 amp??.The first thing to try is to go to set up menu and change the audio o/p to pcm track.See if this works.What has more than likely happened is unit is set to dolby digital and should be on pcm track instead.If this doesnt work more than likely fault in unit but have seen very few audio problems with dvds.
