Take your Kenwood cd player to an authorized Kenwood dealer and pay about 20 or 30 dollars and they'll get it off. They wont tell you there secrets though.

Make sure you're entering the code correctly; use the control knob's 4-way controls to select the numbers, and when you're done press and hold the control knob for at least 3 seconds.

I have a Kenwood KDC - MP 828 that I bought from a friend and it's asking for an unlock code how do I go about this

Hello if you have the remote and the unlock key number
Use the above link to the manual
If you don't have the remote you will need to get one as it is required to input the code
Need the code ask Kenwood ,the person you bought it from or take it to a local radio shack to get it read

Kenwood KDC-MPV619. No remote. Need unlock code for deck.

I had the same problem with my kdc-mpv619. I had bought a new truck that didn't have a remote and the screen says enter code. You do need a remote to fix it, but what they don't tell you is a universal remote will work. I used my direct tv remote and looked up all the codes for kenwood.

The one that worked for me was 30337 (not sure if that would work for you).

1) The way I tested it was go to my stereo and I held down the display button + volume up button. (This should remove the - - - - sign but it will still say CODE).

2) Then you press the 5 button on the remote and if the screen says CODEK then you know the remote works.

(to switch from K to C to A to R press the (>>) button on the screen.

3) Enter the code KCAR (the display will say CODEKCAR)

4) Final Step is hold do the fast forward button (>>) on the screen.

It should work for you after that ;-)

Security unlock code for kenwood kdc-x991

if you bought it brand new it should come with the security code. If not you can try 0000 or 1234, something easy like that is usually the case too.

Kenwood Deck KDC-MP3032

Hey mate

We always used to use the remote to enter the code and the unit would reset. Without the remote, dont think it works, sorry man. Go to a Kenwood installer and they will probably be able to help you will you wait. I would, if you are in Greenbank QLD Australia. :

1. Select Clock Adjustment mode, Push the Control **** to [FM] or [AM]. Select the "Clock Adjust" display.
2. Enter Clock Adjust mode, Press the Control **** for at least 1 second. The clock display blinks.
3. Adjust the hours, Push the Control **** to [FM] or [AM].
Adjust the minutes, Push the Control **** to [4] or [¢].
