    Sorry about the weird post.....my issue is the second part (after the email address). thanks.

  • bucknut4ever Oct 23, 2008

    Yes, I have the manual.

  • bucknut4ever Oct 23, 2008

    Thanks for the help, unfortunately none of those worked. I checked the manual and packaging for a sticker but no dice. The only sticker was the "Certified Upgrade" sticker on the box (this means that someone other than me has powered it on at some point). I also tried the 3 codes suggested (along with all of the other obvious ones) with no luck.

    When I contacted Kenwood, they said to ship it to a certified repair shop. I am hoping that is a last resort, that is why I am here. Thanks.

  • bucknut4ever Oct 23, 2008

    I have tried all the basic codes, 0000, 1111, ......., phone numbers, etc... so it is obvious that I did not set the feature up because I have only a handful of 4 digit "pins" I would have used. I even tried a series of numbers I found on the box and in the manual with no luck. Keep offering suggestions! thanks.

  • bucknut4ever Oct 24, 2008

    Anyone have any other ideas?

  • bucknut4ever Oct 24, 2008

    The code is not in the manual. See the other comments above.

  • bucknut4ever Oct 27, 2008

    Sounded promising, but there is no "AUTO" button on the unit or on the remote.

  • bucknut4ever Oct 27, 2008

    Shipping it off to a service center is a last resort, that's why I am on this site.

Well, hate to say this friend ... but sending it to the repair centre would be the best and the only option to resolve the issue.

All the codes given above are not for the unit and there is no way you can reset the units using the remotes.


Thanks

    You need to contact Kenwood service center to unlock code of your player and they would charge some fee to do so.

Hi,

There are some reported cases of Kenwood units going into "PROTECT" mode when the main power was interrupted. These are traced to firmware and the main reason for the feature, security. There are four (4) possible ways of re-establishing operation of the unit by inputting the code:

  • consult the owner/user's manual. normally the code is on a sticker in one of the front/backpages;
  • consult the dealer or point of purchase with proof of ownership;
  • try K C A R or 3 0 5 1 or 1 2 3 4 as the code;
  • seek the services of firm that deals with this problem.
Hope that this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Do you have the manual for your device.

Posted on Oct 23, 2008

  • ready2helpu Oct 23, 2008

    aso please check out in the manual for this code.

    its a 4 digit code should be entered if asked to enter.

    for example--1111-- or ---0000--

    like that something would be given.

    please check.



    feel free for further assistance.

I bought a car with a kenwood kvt 715dvd the battery went dead an now its asking for a password but i dont kno it how would i reset my kenwood kvt 715dvd/cd player


Did you look online or do you have a owners manuel? There is usually a factory set password such as 1-2-3-4 etc, unless you purchased it second hand and the previous owner custom set - then you have to contact the previous owner or Kenwood. Most people dont change the factory passwords. TRY KCAR (5227 ON A KEYPAD) uf that doesnt work read the forum post on: ecoustic.com. Good Luck

Kenwood ddx712 says parking off when dvd is put in while drivind


This is ok, it is trying to protect you from losing focus on your driving. It is asking for you to pull the parking brake up so that you wont drive while watching a movie, it is against the law to drive while watching TV in a moving vehicle, you must be parked to watch, it is possible to bypass the P-Brake so that you can watch as you drive but it then becomes a technical issue which is too long for me to guide you through here and most car audio shops will not do it for you due to liability reasons if you get into an accident, they dont want to get sued.

Good luck buddy.

Please rate and vote for me if I helped. Thanks.
