Ive had this problem lots of times I cant find the underlying cause but for a quick fix just hit the little reset button on the bottom left corner. Im still trying to find a way to stop it from constantly happening

The same thing has happened to me and the only short term solution i can find is to click the reset to factory setting button in the bottom left corner. but the :OCER comes back shortly... i think that it has something to do with overheating because my unit is always very hot after it stops working

How to install a Kenwood kdc 138 in a 1992 Ford Escort LX?


if its anything like my 92 ranger you take the dash apart around the radio and the stereo should unscrew, in my ranger the new cd player went in without any extra harness as it was the same size as the stock, if not you can but harnesses to go where your old stereo did, to connect the speakers you can buy a ford wiring harness from walmart or any store with an audio department. these plug in to your vehicles wiring harness so you don't have to cut it out, after that you simply match colours from the wires of the new cd player to the wiring harness

Don't know how to set clock on kenwood kdc-138 without manual


change the tune mode to standby mode. Then press menu button for few second until clock word is displayed on the screen. Afterward, press the center of the main control button on the right side of the stereo system. The time is now blinking and you can start set the time by pressing upward & downward button for hour and left & right button for the minute

The screen keeps showing OCER.


It's in protect mode. If you have a reset button, press it, it should be next to the SRC button(very small hole, need a toothpick to press) if it works you're ok. if not unplug speakers one at a time to see if you have a short. good luck

Kenwood KDC-138 Operation Problem


Here's the quote from the manual regarding "dcer": "The speaker wire has a short-circuit or touches the chassis of the vehicle and then the protection function is activated. Wire or insulate the speaker cable properly and press the reset button. If the "PROTECT/DCER" code does not disappear, consult your nearest service center "

I believe the manual can be downloaded from crutchfield .com after you go to the Kenwood KDC-138 page on their website. The reset button is either on the lower left of the face or, removing the face, on the lower left of the body. Hope this helps you.
