    I have the same problem, wonder if it is the age of my ipod

  • glynn177 Feb 25, 2009

    When the iPod is connected via the iP301v cable, the Head Unit display reads "Disconnected". There is no sound, no video, nothing.

There is now a new firmware upgrade, as of late Feb. 09, at the kenwood website, version 2.4 or something like that. It fixed my issue where I could not even sync my iPod to my 512. When you go to the website, you have to know the serial number to your unit. You then download a zip file to your computer, extract the files and burn the firmware upgrade to a CD R/RW. Next you insert the disk into the 512 and the rest is automatic. This all worked for me, hope it works for everyone else.

When i hook up my ipod to the kcu cable nothings happening and i cant even find an ipod source channel on the head unit itself


Is there an option for AUX or Auxilary input anywhere on the head? Try switching the input source through all possible settings while playing the ipod and ensuring the volume is on, to see if it plays.

How do I connect my iPod to a stereo Kenwood


<p>The superior audio quality thanks to the Kenwood stereo system is as good as any on the market. However, many of Kenwood audio receivers contain no iPod connection port. Even the business hubs of high-end entertainment that interface with the computer via USB cannot provide connectivity to an iPod. But that does not mean you cannot high-quality audio through your stereo Kenwood iPod. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Put your Kenwood stereo. Connect devices with the stereo turned on may lead to spikes in volume that can damage the speakers and even your ears. Turn up the stereo, so you can use the set of connectors on the back to see. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Connect the end of 3.5 mm 3.5 mm to RCA cable for the headset from your iPod. If you do not have a cable 3.5mm to RCA, you can buy one of the sound equipment stores or electronics stores like Radio Shack. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Connect the RCA end to your cable 3.5mm to RCA in an available port on the back of your Kenwood stereo. Put your Kenwood stereo, so you can access the buttons on the front. Turn the sound and select the channel of your iPod is connected. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Test the connection. Lower the volume on the Kenwood stereo and start a track playing on your iPod that you can recognize. Turn your volume until you play the iPod through the stereo to listen. If you hear no sound, check the "Monitor CD2/TAPE2" is active, and "Mute" is off <br />

Ipod will not play video to my head unit AVH P5900DVD


ok for the first post with the ipod not showing video .. make sure that you have the correct cable running from behind the deck to the ipod .. (iPod Direct Control (CD-I200 Required) once you have that connected you need to go to the video settings of your ipod and turn on the video out .. by default its offf... also remember with movies on your ipod .. that has to be manually selected from the ipod itself .. you cant control the videos from the pioneer unit.. only the audio/music on your ipod can be selected from the pioneer unit..
