Question about Kenwood KDC-MP5032 CD Player

1 Answer

No sound at all

I recently installed an amp to my kenwood, when i turn off the built in amp. all the sound goes away. I am able to switch between tuner sattelite radio and cd, but all sound is completely off.
I understand the main purpose of this switch is to able to use external amp with dat switch. Could anyone help me with this?

    ok..dat was helpful...but the the receiver and the amp are connected with RCA jacks, but the only ones i have hooked up are the rear speakers and sub. dat would mean if i turn off the built in amp i would be able to hear the front speakers, but i don't....anything else in mind?

IF im correct if you only have high outputs which are RCA jacks, between the tunner and the amp, rather then the low inputs which is the factory hornest that your car manufactor installed, when you power down the amp you should have no sound at all. id assume 99.9%

    Does the tunner have high output RCA jacks for a front amp, if so plug the amp into those imputs and see if you get sound from the front chanels if so, try to check you low input conector for lose pin conectors or a bad conection.

New kenwood kdc-mp242 installed turns on but no sound


The Blue/White wire, Brown wire, and Blue wire???? These don't have to be connected unless you are using a separate Power Amp...if you are, then the Blue/White wire needs to be used to switch on the power amp. Here is a link to Kenwood for your KDC-MP242 Instruction Manual. Reference page 16.

How to install a kill switch for kenwood amp? i have a 2002 ford taurus, factory radio. which means (this thing does not have an RCA wire behind the radio). where do i install the kill switch then?...


Run the remote on the amp to a known switched power. (one that goes on and off with the switch) Does not have to be associated with the wires in the stereo.

My 800 watt kenwood


Sounds like you shorted out the main power wire somewhere and killed the amp. Is the amp on the fuse intact or blown? Do you have 12 volts at the amp? check you connections and see if it helps.

Kenwood VR-405


more info would be nice. If you're using optical, make sure its securely in both the tv and your vr-405 receiver. I have owned the vr-405 since 2000 and i just purchased a sony 32xbr6. HDMI into the TV, optical out to the receiver, it sounds amazing!

My back speakers wont produce any sound


OK I believe there is a small indented "Reset Button" around somewhere on the back of the unit, With the unit powered ON, & using a small diameter implement, straightened paper clip etc, press IN the button and this should "Reset" ya unit. This may indeed fix all your problems as the Unit "Reads" the speakers at turn on.

Volume turned up, kenwood shuts off briefly...


I had this same exact problem when my last older Kenwood Marine stereo cooked itself while I had it up loud for a few weekends on the lake. (smelled like it had burned inside). I went out and bought a new Kenwood KMR-550u stereo deck. (I do not have an additional amp). I hooked it up to the exact connections where my older Kenwood stereo unit had been hooked up, as I never had a problem with this for the past three years until it failed after smelling of burning elelectrical. I had chalked the problem up to heavy rain we had one day. Every time I turned up the volume, sometimes up to 27 out of 35 possible, or 29, or 32, the stereo would suddenly shut off as if I had turned it off. After a few seconds the stereo would come back on, but unless I was quick enough to turn down the volume it would do it again right away. Of course on a boat, we were beached in a cove and the engine was not running when I encountered this. I searched the internet finding hundreds of similar complaints and several dozen theories of all types, but only a couple that pointed me towards the power (voltage) idea as the problem. I put a volt meter on the positive & negative wires powering the stereo. I watched as I gradually turned up the volume, the voltage on the power wire gradually decreased from 12.5 volts, down into the 11 range, and as it hit 10.9 or 10.8 volts it shut off typically around a volume of 32. The red power wire in my boat that never seemed to have an issue with my old stereo until it fried was determined to actually be inadequate for the power flow for the new Kenwood, and probably was the culprit of my failed older unit. I offer this sound advice: Run a new pair of positive & negative wires directly from the battery (with an appropriate fuse of course (the deck has a 10 amp fuse in it's back so I would use that at the battery) to the stereo. Check the voltage as you turn the volume up into the high 20's and low 30's to ensure you are still getting voltage in the mid to high 11-12 volt range. The stereo is designed to require a minimum of 10.8 volts to operate, and when it drops below that it protects itself and shuts down.
