Question about Kenwood Car Audio & Video
SOURCE: Adding MP3 Input to Kenwood R/C
To be honest, I can't find one spec of info on that stereo on the internet. It's possible the DIN connection you see is for controlling a CD changer. If so, it's possible you can use either this cable or this cable to turn it into an AUX input. But without a manual or anything, it's hard to know for sure. You have to contact Kenwood.

Have you tried hitting the "Reset" button on the head unit?
The procedure is on page 7 of the owner's manual under the heading "How to reset your unit"
Here's the URL for the Owner's Manual:
Per the owner's manual, you're supposed to call Kenwood technical support if the display doesn't correctly reset or come back on and/or if the disc won't eject.

Assuming you have the original navi disc, then your laser eye is either dirty or tired(out of alightment) from playing mp3 or copied disc. Buy a cd lens cleaner kit if that doesn't help then have someone who know how and have it re-align. Goodluck.

Hi, as I have already mentioned, you will need a new power wire and fuse from the fusebox. The wire size will depend on the power rating of the amp. You will also need a ground wire of the same size to ground the amp to the chassis. You will use the black wire with a red stripe as a turn on wire to the amp. Do not confuse this wire with the illumination wire that is providing the backlight to your head unit. The turn on wire will be connected to the factory amplifier under the center console, if you have one. You obviously need a place to install the amp and you need to mount it properly according to the instructions that came with the amp. If there is no factory amp, maybe your new amp will fit in the same
location. If you do have the factory amp, all of the speaker wires will
originate there. You will then need to run the factory speaker wires from the head unit to the amp input terminals and then hook your speakers to the output terminals. If you are using the stock speakers or new speakers, you will need to verify they are compatible with the amp in terms of impedance and wattage. If you tell me the models of your amp and speakers, I can verify this for you. Below are the factory wire colors and functions for your stock head unit.
Car Radio Battery Constant 12v+ Wire: Blue/Yellow
Car Radio Accessory Switched 12v+ Wire: Gray
Car Radio Ground Wire: Brown
Car Radio Illumination Wire: Black/Red
Car Stereo Amp Trigger Wire: Black/Red
Car Stereo Amplifier Location: Under the center console.
Left Front Speaker Positive Wire (+): Pink
Left Front Speaker Negative Wire (-): Violet
Right Front Speaker Positive Wire (+): Green
Right Front Speaker Negative Wire (-): Blue
Left Rear Speaker Positive Wire (+): Black
Left Rear Speaker Negative Wire (-): Yellow
Right Rear Speaker Positive Wire (+): Red
