press the display button until the time appears on the display (instead of the radio station or cd track). once on the time press and hold the display button and the time should flash. use the sel (aka select) button to jump from hours to minutes.

Audio formats supported by kenwood kdc 719

My older CD player accepted WAV files when I burned them as Audio CDs. (I was able to add CD-Text, even though my player can't read the text. The disc I added space between the tracks though didn't work properly.)

Then do a mastered burn (disc at once) and finalize the disc. I used CD Burner XP for burning the latest batch and Audacity to create the WAV files. I've also use Roxio Creator and Nero in the past.

I hope this helps.

(I'll admit there's one issue - I can't get the disc to stop between tracks. I was copying audio tapes to CD before more of my tapes broke.)

Cd player reads error 04

The error 4 in most Sony stereos is an error that comes up when the laser pickup doesn't read the disc correctly. This happens most of the time because of a dirty lens in the laser pickup. If anyone smokes in the vehicle the smoke may be on the lens causing the error code. Try a wet type CD cleaning disc to see if it helps.

I have a car audio SONY CDX-M9900 and I can't reproduce mp3 files, I don't know if it because I don't burn the CD's in the right way or if reader does not work allright. Anyway, all the Audio CD are...

firstly - test the discs in another player that you know will play burnt discs/mp3 files (not your computer)- if they don't work then you know either they are not finalised, or your burner is on its way out.

Have you tried cleaning the unit with a "Laser Lens Cleaner?" one that uses fluid? Mp3 is a fickle format and your deck may be having issues reading it. Try running a cleaner thru it. Secondly, when you burn discs, make sure you finalize it by making it "compatable for all player types" Hope this helps

When I try to play a C.D. on my system it says frmtread error

That error is (Format Read Error). Usually a MP3 problem when the disc was burned too fast, or corrupted during burn. Some writing programs dont put an initial track on the CD designating it an audio disc. I have seen Nero have many Problems with this. FYI
Try burning 1x speed on the next disc, yes slow, just to see if it works. If so then gradually increase the burnning speed up again.

Won't read mp3 and wma cds

The discs were not "finalized" or "closed" - place the cd's back on your computer cd-rom drive and search the help file of your CD burning software and search for "closing disc" or "finalizing disc." Some programs will allow you to close or finalize after you have already burned them, but others (Sony SoundForge is one exmaple) will not allow it - you may have to re-burn the discs and select the option that says "close disc after finishing" (this option is usually left unchecked by default, because closing or finalizing a disc prevents you from adding any new information to the disc).

What does toc err mean?

TOC is table of contents. Typically if its on a recorded cd try burning a cd from antoher computer and try it, if it works its most likely that your burner or software or ccd's your using are bad. Also is it a MP3 disc your trying to play? If so then you MUST burn it as a MP3 cd. You cant just burn MP3's to a CD and it read them. If this is the case thats why you are getting the TOC error because its not writing to the CD whats on the CD on the TOC area of the disc.

MP3 files start skipping/popping after few minutes of playback

Sony say in the manual that if you record high bit-rate mp3's the sound may be intermittent. I feel this is due to the decoder having to move ALOT of bits around to play, try some makeing a disk with mixed rate mp3's on. e.g.) some 64Kbps, some 128, some 192, and some as high as you can get and see if there is any differ Luck
