KDC.716S Mech error issue

The other night my car completly shut off due to the battery cables losing connection. I got the connection back and when I started my car back up the stero will not eject a cd, the fm radio works but when I try to get the face to move at all with the open button or by turning it off it doesnt even turn. After pushing the eject button 3 times I got a mech error message. What do I do?

Try the tiny reset button on the front just below the volume down button.

Kenwood Kdc-mp425 will not switch to Aux. Aux cable is connected to the back of the headunit, but no aux option is available on menu for either my ipod touch or my sirius unit. I've accessed the menu from...

Apparently, this auxiliary input only works for a Kenwood CD changer or a sirius radio connection. At least that is my conclusion after finding the same problem. Let me know if you figured anything out on this.

My kdc-v7022 won't turn on?

pull it apart and check bottom of circut board for blown tracks or there should be a fuse check that first,be careful when pulling apart to not break any flexie cables,the mech should be 4 screws and 1 cable then look for signs of damage to components then pull out board as last resort

firstly you should remove the power from the unit for a few seconds to reset it. if this doesn't fix it you can remove the top lid and you will see the motor that rotates the fascia, if you unplug the flexible cable that powers the motor and put 6volts on the motor contacts till the fascia rotates and then plug the flexible cable back put the fascia back on and plug the power lead back on to the radio

Need to clear the code...

Once the code is in there you cant"clear" the code. Im told its a secret on how they change the code but a little birdy told me you have to change the small 8 pin eeprom to setup code back to all 0000's Your gonna need a manual unless your local Kenwood servicer will assist you.
