Ddx 419 no sound ipod

No offense but this is actually not the solution. There is a quirk with some Kenwood DDX 419. The manual on page 24 makes it clear that it is supposed to play audio through an ipod cable alone, only if you want to stream audio and video or the Garmin App should you need the other cable with the dual plugs (usb and audio). I bought one for my car and had it installed last week and it works right from the USB (only) with my iphone 4s and does not need the extra audio plug in which is inferior sound quality (analog) compared to the USB only (digital). I bought a second deck for my wife's car and had them install it this week and it did not work with the USB alone. The one on demo in Future shop did not work either with the USB alone. The manual for the DDX 419 makes it clear that it is supposed to stream audio without the extra cable. It reads, "To listen to the music (digital): USB Audio cable for iPod/iPhone-- KCA-iP102 (optional accessory). Look up the cable by google searching and you will see that even on the Kenwood site it is a regular iPod/iPhone cable. There is obviously a glitch with certain decks and they are not addressing it. I am returning mine and getting a Pioneer.

No Audio wih Ipod hookup

This happened to me. What worked was turning off the ipod (not stand by mode). Turn it back on and plug it in, it should work.

Kenwood KVT-512 iphone compatibility

Just ignore the airplane mode prompt and if your wiring is correct everything should work.
With my BMW I had to connect both the solid blue (pwr ant) wire and the blue with white stripe (p conn) to the solid blue wire from the factory harness.

It isn't obvious that either of these are needed as the KVT-512 has it's own power supply but the way most factory power amps are installed the power from the KVT-512 is not used and the car manufacturers power amp needs to be turned on.

If you are listening to the radio the pwr ant wire will turn on the power amp, this didn't seem obvious because the BMW doesn't have a power antenna. And when you are using the DVD player or the iPod connection you need the P Conn wire to turn on the car power amp as the ant pwr is disabled because you are no longer using the radio and Kenwood assumes you will not need the antenna so no power to this lead.

Solder all three wires together and you should have sound all the time.

Kenwood dnx8120 ipod authorization error

From Kenwood Product support"

Thank you for contacting Kenwood USA Corporation. As an authorized agent for Kenwood, we are responding to your recent email inquiry.

Check the cable to see if it says "KENWOOD" on the part where it splits into three cable lines. Many locations are selling cables that appear to be the KCA-iP300V, but are not and do not have the Apple Authorization chip inside of them.

If it does show "KENWOOD," then try reseeting the iPod. This is done by switching the HOLD on and then off, and then pressing the Menu and Center buttons together until the Apple Logo appears.

Please feel free to contact us again with any additional questions.

Resetting the iPod worked for me... Good luck.
