Try physically cleaning the laser with a q-tip , build up occurs that cleaning disks won't remove , if that don't work it may need adjusting to the lasers freq. or the laser needs replacing

My DEHp8400bh only connects to my htc evo4g sometimes and other times it reads no service. please help


I've found that I need to have my phone on with Bluetooth enabled before the head unit powers on (i.e.starting the car). If it's already started I just pop the faceplate and snap it back in to power cycle the head unit. At that point Bluetooth always connects properly.

Not recognising that there is a cd in there. keeps saying 'no disk'


Hi there , have you tryed cleaning the lazer lens very gentle with a cotton bud , the lazer could be quite costly to replace , there is a very small ajustment on the lazer inside the unit but would need someone with a bit no how to ajust the setting a very small amount to see if the lazer will work better .

CD player motor no longer working on hi-fi system.System at least 15yrs old.


I'm not sure what you mean by stating that the motor doesn't work. Depending upon the make and model, this unit should be repairable. Can you please post the make and model along with a more detailed description of the problem?

Thanks,
Dan

Kenwood stereo synthesizer tuner t-85l


T-85L is a component of a hifi system not suposed to work alone. You have to connect it to another Kenwood component (an amplifier like the A85 ) through a special cable to power it on/off. The special cable can be used point to point or as daisy-chained.

Receiver will not work by remote


Hi!

Here are suggested solutions for you!

Unfortuntately, you and many others have this problem. I will point you in the direction of two "fixes" I have found.

Fix 1 is from Kenwood themselves, per the following quote:

"First try replacing the batteries if you haven't already. If that doesn't help, try resetting the receiver. Simply unplug the receiver, then press and hold the power button on the receiver while you plug it back in. Turn the unit on, and the display should say 87.50 to confirm the reset. If the remote still does not work, use a digital camera as an eye, face it towards the IR of the remote control. Depress any of the remotes buttons; you should see IR flash each time a button is pressed. If not then the problem is with the remote. If the remote works fine, then the problem is with the receiver. In order to determine the cause of the problem, I suggest you take the defective unit to a Kenwood authorized service center for evaluation. You can find information for authorized service centers in your area by visiting our website at www.kenwoodusa.com."

The second fix involves some very simple soldering, and has been endorsed by many as the solution:

I hope this helps. Good luck and please let me know if this solves your problem!

Hi. Own A Kenwood RXD 653 midi hi fi that's around 8 years old.The problem is it has,mainly,stopped playing cds.Its a 3 disc changer and when i try to play any cds I can hear the disc spinning but the...


It is the laser, If the cd mech is in the top of this one you may just need to clean the lens manually. Cleaning discs are not all that reliable. You can do this by taking the top off and looking at the area where the disc gets clamped to play. The laser has the small glass lens. That is the part you need to clean. Take a Q-tip and wet it very lightly with some windex or some alcohol. Make it so that the Q-tip is just barely wet. Then just lightly rub the lens without pushing on it hard at all. Just nice and easy over the glass lens. Then dyr it off with the dry end just like you did with the wet end. That's it. close it back up again and turn it on and see if it plays. If it still does not play you need a new laser. No other fix for it.

Speakers inop. on kenwood reciever


The speaker protection circuit sounds to be engaged. This protects you speakers form damage if a fault condition occurs inside the amp. Generally speaking, unless you have good experience at fault finding electronics, then this may be a job for a repair guy. If you want to know more about diagnosing the problem, get back to me here. Good luck :)
