SOURCE: i pressed my radios reset

Per page 26 in the following manual: http://www.sirius.com/pdf/manuals/kdcx679.pdf

The security code can't be changed, once it's set. Did you go through the sequence of steps on page 26 of the manual?

If you did (in fact) lock in and approve a security code, you'll need to contact Kenwood support and prove ownership (e.g. receipt) before they can give you instructions for resetting the code.

There is a hack for the ASIC that stores the security code out on the Internet (use Google to find it).

If my response helped you, please reward me with positive feedback (Fixed it!). Thanx!

If the screen did not even light up, then you definately have a power issue. Verify that your fuse did not blow, and then that you connected the correct wires. The power wires are usually orange and red. Red being the "always on" and orange being the "switched source".

Hello george_nutti,

The model number you posted is for a center channel speaker which has no controls, and not knowing the exact model number it's difficult to be specific.

Some Kenwood KDC models allow you to select one of 3 "tuning modes", 1) AUTO1 - Automatic search for stations; 2) AUTO2 - Search Preset stations; 3) MANUAL - Normal manual tuning control. If your Kenwood is one of these models, you need to set the tuning mode to MANUAL. For Kenwood Excelon HD receivers, direct access tuning is done by using the included remote. 1) Press DIRECT button on the remote; 2) Press number buttons to enter desired channel number; 3) Press DIRECT button again to exit direct tuning.

Hope this helps.
