I have a Kenwood VR-606 receiver. I have just discovered that I am not getting any sound out of the receiver when I play a DVD. This receiver has multiple input selections, such as Video 1/2, Aux, DVD 6-Channel, and CD/DVD. I use the receiver both for TV audio and for DVD audio. For the DVD audio, I have a digital optical cable running from the DVD player into the receiver. I have checked both ends of the connection, and it is firmly inserted. On the receiver itself, are buttons to turn the speakers off as well as to mute the sound. I ensured that the speakers were on and that the sound was muted. I also ensured that the input was selected as CD/DVD. I tested several DVDs and had no sound on any of them. The receiver works as far as being able to use the DVD-6 Channel selection for TV sound. Does this mean that the optical cable has gone bad? Is there something wrong with the receiver itself?
