Kenwood in-dash dvd player kvt817dvd cuts out

I've had a kenwood 817dvd for about 3 years and worked great until last night it didn't turn on with the truck. if i press the reset button it will turn on but as soon as i change the source it goes dead after about 1 second. I can't see any grounded wires (brain is under back seat) but it is possible. But it's weird that it will turn on as "standby" mode, i unplugged the speaker rca's thinking maybe it was a speaker shorted because it's seems to cut out when the volume cuts in but it still cut out...any help would be appreciated.

Hi
What are you getting exactly on the display?Are you getting any noise on the speakers? Please check for the yellow wire on the back of the unit.

Hi there,

inside the unit there will be a small battery, this will need replacing as its not holding its charge, the battery is just like a watch battery, as soon as this is sorted it will work fine.

The battery is for holding system information like for instance the time and date, and all over things that you might have programed with it.

Hope this helps.

Please rate me

Thanks

How do i get the video to work on my kenwood kvt 817


yes there is a safety feature but it is very easy to overide with a toggle switch you can purchase from just about any where. if you arent to tech savy you could take it to a "hole in wall" stereo shop and they can do it, but they will charge. if not look up the manual for your reciever on kenwoods website and it will tell you how and what those other wires are for.

Kenwood kvt817dvd powers up after reset but cuts out after src


I removed my brain from beneath my seat and exposed all wires and connections. I have found that on mine (kvt-815) there were two pinched wires- 1 for a speaker and the other the remote wire. I respliced these sections and tested my radio again. It appears to be working now and stays on again. I'm guessing one of the wires must have been touching something metal under the seat (seat frame) and grounding out. If the unit doesn't power on at all, check the fuse first. Otherwise, I would  inspect every wire like I did and maybe you'll find a pinched (grounded) wire. Maybe I just got lucky... but at least it's working again and I don't have to replace the brain! Hope this helps.
