Question about Kenwood DNX7100 Car Video Player
Unistalled the unit out of my old vehicle and installed into my new car. Of course when power is lost it goes into anti theft mode. Well when I typed in my original password the unit is still locked out. I tried several times. Also 0000,1111,1234, and the Kenwood 3051. I called Kenwood and faxed them my receipt of ownership and they told me to type KCAR, but their instructions on typing KCAR in the unit was confusing and cannot figure out. Anyone have any ideas?
While code request mode,point the remote control to the unit and enter this code 55222277or 552222777(depending the remote contro you are using)(try to press the numbers that faster you can) that is way you type KCAR from the remote control.
you will not see any change on the screen while you entering the number,only when you enter the last number the unit will go to standby mode.
if you make a mistake,reset the unit and start all over again.
let me know if works

You call Kenwood, and get the info for the closest national service center, they will tell you how much ($45 for me plus S&H), you ship the whole unit to them, and they send it back unlocked. Major bummer for me, I bought my car used, didn't get the code. I understand the need for security, but all this process does is shift some of the profit away from theives and back into Kenwood's pocket.
