Kenwood KDC-MP538U - no sound.

Hey, im having a similar issue with my new cd player. mine will only play sound to the wired speakers when i choose an FM radio station as the sound source. when i select a USB mp3, or try a regular audio CD... it doesnt play sound to the wired speakers... but the amp & subs in the trunk play the bass and the equalizer seems to be working... did you ever figure out what the deal was with your cd player? thanks, -tim

My issue was that I didn't have the blue "amp" wire hooked up and I had a factory amp.

My kdc-mp538u the screen will not come on what can i do


Check the cables in the back of it. If tou already did that how old is it? If relativly new might want to check possibility of wires in back getting wet. If none of those and you have a removable face the connectors between the base and the face are crapping out. Try getting a new face.

My kenwood kdc-mp53u flashes PROTECT whats wrong with it?


Protect indicates that there is a short or a grounding problem usually within the speakers2_bing.gif or the speaker wiring. Locate and press the reset button (pinhole). If protect comes back then disconnect all speakers, reset and connect them back one at a time until protect shows up again. This will help you find out where the unwanted DC signal is coming from. If protect shows up when all speakers are disconnected, then it may need service.

Kenwood KDC-MP538U does not save settings like time and date


I have had the same problem, my problem was that i accidentaly hooked up the constant wire to the switched, and the switched to the constant, causing it to turn off completely, resetting everything. So if this is the problem then just switch the wires in the back of thew head unit, should be the fatter yellow wire, and the fatter red wire
hope this helps
