If remote designed for tv, and or other units the mode button may have been pressed etc.

Set to dvd etc instead of one for unit being used on.

The remote can be tested by any shop (usually for free) to see if it is sending a signal......

    Thanks for the reply, but that's not the problem with this remote. None of the major buttons I normally push are working; Off, On, Watch, Listen, etc. The LCD screen started to have some fading also in a couple areas.

    "THE ONLY BUTTONS THAT WORK ARE THE NUMBERS" are some buttons on the remote working and others not?

  • Kelly Oct 30, 2012

    Yes, it's the strangest thing. The numbers are at the bottom of the remote (which I never use), everything above the numbers does not work. One minute it was working then the next it quit. They still make a beep like they are working when pushed, but nothing happens.

    either its in the remote or the set which receives signals and translates them to certain actions is at fault--one or the other.

Radio was working then went off the eject button works the clock button works but the radio or USB will not work no sound

Hi Steve, If you disconnected your battery then check out the link below for more information or take your registration papers with your licence (licence is to prove YOU own the car) to a car dealer ie: Holden, Ford, Chrysler and ask at the sales office for the RADIO SECURITY PIN NUMBER, You'll receive your Radio security pin number and Radio serial number. These numbers belong to your car and once you have them DON'T loose them because in Australia some dealers charge a fee and some don't.... Hope this helped....CHEERS..

Buttons make numbers appear on screen

The keypad control board must be replaced in order to address the issue, but keep in mind the part alone is expensive.

My battery was disconnected and now I have to enter the security code for my radio for make it work again! I have the code, but I don't know how to enter it!

You should have the radio pre-set numbers 1,2,3,4,5 & 6 along the lower edge of the unit.

Most stereos are like this:

Example code 4358

Press number 1 button - 4 times
Press number 2 button - 3 times
Press number 3 button - 5 times
Press number 4 button - 8 times

Hope this helps

The radio is safe, how to reset again

Turn on radio - the word SAFE will appear in the display. Press th P.SCAN and RBDS buttons simultaneously and hold them down until "1000" lights up in the display.Release buttons.Do not, under no circumtances, continue holding them down or press them once again. This will cause the radio to consider the number 1000 to be the input code.Use station buttons 1,2,3,and 4 to enter the code number on your Radio Card. Use the button 1 to enter the first number 2 for the second number 3 for the third number and 4 for the last number.Once you have entered the code and it shows on the display,press the P.SCAN and RBDS buttons down again simultaneously and hold them down until the word SAFE appears in the display.Release buttons. Soon afterwards a frequency will be displayed.

Changing number for call fwd on KX-T7630

This is against my better judgement, but try this link.


Now you have a manual. Look at the *7 commands on page 191. My guess is the installer put *714x commands under the button, but he may have done some 44 commands via personal programming. You did write them down? The 3rd piossibility is that it references a bin that is programmed as a mobile can assign any 3 digit number in the universe of 100 to 699
as an ICD number that forwards all calls to an outside number.

Anyway, please acknowledge that you got the pdf and I hope it works out for you.
