Question about Kenwood KDC-X811

1 Answer

Unit just died (mostly)

I've owned this unit since it first came out, and it's worked fine, until now. It worked fine on the way to work the other morning, but on the way back it did not. The D-mask flips around as it should, but there is no display. The radio plays faintly but you can't change the volume, station, source, etc... I'm thinking it's finally bit the dust, but has anyone else had a problem like this that was able to rectify it? Thanks in advance!

Kenwood no sound

Just had the same thing happen to my new pioneer system. My truck battery died because I was jamming to the new installation, and the system just suddenly turned off. I charged the battery and the unit came on all the lights menus and displays worked like normal but there was no sound coming from the speakers. I checked all the fuses in the truck but none were burnt out. So I remembered there was a fuse on the back if the unit so I had to pull the unit back out. I checked the fuse and it was fine. I unplugged the wiring harness from the unit, plugged it back in and IT WORKED so I'm not sure exactly what was wrong with it, but I suspect when I unplugged the harness it reset the unit. So maybe this will work for your installation as well. Not exactly a high tech answer but maybe it will help ya! Good luck

JVC KD -S680 needs help

maybe short circuit or similiar problem inside since its geting hot, probably not a problem with the faceplate I would remove the cd player from your car and take it to a professional for a diagnosis / repair estimate. Can't solve this one with text only.

Ipod cable will not work with the DEH-P3000

Hi, On a slightly different model and only if you would venture to try: with the iPod via cable plugged to the iP-Bus port and the unit powered off but the powersupply on - 1. press and hold for a couple of seconds the Function button (FUNC) or till the clock starts to flash; 2. the arrow keys (left/right) will move you through the different menu settings; 3. the arrow keys (up/down) will move you through the different selection for each setting; 4. look for source, external, AUX, iPod or whatever will be displayed which may refer to an external input; 5. soon as you have enabled/set the AUX, press and hold the FUNC button while turning the unit on. This will save the current setup. Hope this also work for your DEH-P3000. Good luck and kind regards.

Alpine Ipod/Stereo Error 1 message

my alpine cda 9856 only displays that message when my ipod dies. so your ipod pobably dies then the head unit recharges it enough in the time your resetting it that it can play again. :)
