Unable to tune frequency in the step of 0.1Mhz in my DEH-3700MP audio system.Example if i want to tune 104.0MHz it will tune to either 103.9 or 104.1MHz.


Skipping all the technical stuff, each FM broadcast channel is 0.2 MHz wide and starts on an even number. The lowest channel for example is, 87.8MHz - 88.0MHz. Radios will tune to the center channel, ie 87.9 MHz. Any FM station in the United States is always an odd number, therefore radios in the US will never tune to an even number

Changing tuning frequncy from odd to even No. Kenwood KDC-MP228


Most car stereo (stereos in general) won't tune to even numbers. If you're having problems tuning in your station then you're either too far away or you should take a look at your antenna.

My kenwood 45wx4 is only tuning to the odd number radio station


In generic terms, you need to change the zone or area to Europe (probably from US).
Typically this is done via the menu function and looking for something like ZONE or AREA and then changing the setting to indicate EUROPE.

Very weird Radio Tuning Problem


This is a USA model and by default in the USA all FM stations end in an Odd number. This is completely normal. you can try holding preset 1 and 5 down while pressing the reset button on the unit and it may allow you to switch to a Europe style of tuning.

Cannot tune to local stations


- The 0.2MHz odd steps are standard for US radios. Try resetting the radio (recessed button under the front panel) If this a US radio then this may not help. If you have lost the manual then go here:- http://books.jvcservice.com/booklist.asp?Model=KD-G400 Come back and say if this helped or not, I could dig a bit deeper.. -

It only seems to tune in odd radio stations


Unless you're in Europe, it's not supposed to. No stations (in America) exist on even numbers.
