Kenwood KDC-138 Standby Question

What exactly is Standby mode used for? How does this differ from turning the stereo off? Why would I want to use Standby instead of powering it off entirely?

Standby mode does not completely power down the unit it jsut does not draw as much power as when the unit is on. Also, depending on the unit, it might start back up faster in standby then from power off. You can select to have certain things displayed while in standby mode. Here is what can be selected for this unit:
Standby: displays CD loaded indicator, "STBY" indicator, and clock (when selected)
Hope this was helpful.

My kdc 138 is acting weird


CLICK HERE for your owners manual.

To exit DEMO mode - (see page 12)

And also pull the radio and check the brown TEL mute wire is not touching ground to activate the Telephone Mute option.

It should be taped off or terminated and is not used in your installation.

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.
