This may sound stupid, but are the channels set up correctly? You will probably need a remote for this...if you look on ebay, you can find some All-for-one, Radio Shack, and Universal Remote Corporation (URC) remotes that can probably support your Kenwood.
There is a forum www.remotecentral.com
that deals with universal remotes. I would start there if you want a remote. Also look around on Ebay and various online stores for an original remote. Sadly the only price I found for an OEM replacement was $117. It's a rubber button remote with an LCD readout dispaly on top, looks like a universal remote variety.
I also failed to find a manual on Kenwood's website. You might be well off hitting a home theater forum and asking anyone if they have a PDF for the manual they can send your way.
To sum it up, a few things can be wrong:
Bad settings on reciever
Damaged source cables, causing weak signal
damaged input on reciever back, causing weak signal
For the input, you can test this by moving the cables to another input. For cables, just get a cheapo $2 pair of cables to test it out, or use a spare set you might have laying around. Settings require the manual or lots of experimentation to see if you can adjust it from the reciever face.
