Kenwood VR-407 no video out

Good day all. I was wondering if anybody might have some input on a problem I've having.

I just inherited a Kenwood VR-407 receiver from a buddy of mine. He was just using it up until a few days ago, both audio and video in and out worked fine.

I was setting it up today and I could not get any video out. I tried both RCA and S Video in/out combinations on all of the inputs with no success. There is video going through the cables which is confirmed by plugging directly into the TV. I confirmed therefore that the issue is with the receiver. I checked all the cables out and they are working fine.

Can anybody give me any suggestions? I hope it's nothing too bad. Kind of puzzled since it worked fine but a few days ago.

Thanks in advance for any information.

What are you plugging into it? I've found that it will block some form of macrovision or something on some devices. For example, I can't get video from a PS3 or Xbox360 to pass through it.
Here's a list of things to check. I'd start by seeing if you can reset the AVR - usually covered in the operating manual somewhere (troubleshooting?). Next, check that your cables are working (in and out of the AVR)
And the other thing I forgot about, the receiver won't convert between composite and svideo connections, you need to have like to like end to end for video to flow.
