Question about Car Speakers & Subwoofers

On my Kenwood DNX7100 in-dash mobile unit, I am unable to get the viewing angle back to its original position. I have pressed the reset button, but it was to no success. I was wondering if you have any ideas/suggestions. Thanks!

You can reset the unit by unplugging battery cable for few minutes, however be aware that connecting back you may be asked for anti theft code, keep it at hand.

It looks like there are a lot of firmware updates available for all of the kenwood brands. I can't seem to ask for clarification so I would first make firmware updates. You can do that by going to kenwood.com and clicking support. From there, look up your model and get any updates that may be available. Once it's updated, that may fix the problem. The updates are done to fix problems like these.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Offhand, it is possible that the adjustable faceplate is just stuck hence the motorized adjuster for the 7-step viewing angles could not move it. It might be that the wormgear is lodged to the driven gear or in some cases, the unit is slightly misaligned in the way it was installed. This is especially so if the enclosure kit is likewise installed. Corrective procedure for the latter would be remove and re-install or if possible no longer use the kit. The former is more challenging since it requires the unit to be opened and mechanical repairs done.

Although it has to be mentioned that there has been some reports that problems as you described are software/firmware glitch.

Kind regards and thank you for using FixYa.

I have a kenwood kdc-mp235 unit and I bought a cable to hook smart phone to auxiliary port, I can play a cd or tunerbut no auxiliary! How do I fix this, I push src button but I get no auxiliary selection


You have to have the deck in "standby" mode before entering the settings menu. Press the source button until Standby comes up, then press and hold the menu button. Use the 4-way switch to scroll through the menu options until you get to AUX, then press the switch to the right to turn it on.

I got this from yahoo, click here to view.

Hope it helps.

I have a kenwood 719 flip out monitor and i put a cd in it and the monitor says mecha error and won't let the cd come out. It just makes a bunch of noises. I pressed the reset button but that didn't work....


You can try to push the CD in further with an object and then try ejecting (be careful not to break the CD!). Also, the soft reset button on the outside of the unit may not work, but disconnecting constant power (hard reset) may cause the CD to automatically be ejected when powered back up again. This can be done by disconnecting the negative battery terminal on the car for 15 seconds. If these don't work, visit a local Kenwood stereo dealer for service as this is a common issue with the 719 series and 819 series.

My dvd will not eject?


What model number is this.

A Kenwood will sometimes eject the disc when you press the reset button.
The reset button is a very small round hole that you need a pen tip or paperclip, something small to press it with. It is on the display.
If you can not find the reset switch you can always unplug the harness in the back of the radio for a minute and then plug it back in, but if you have a security code protected radio you will need to enter the code to use the radio again or use the remote to clear the code. If you need that done and have a remote, let me know and I will post the procedure for that, but i must have the model number of the radio. Be aware that by resetting the unit, you will need to set the clock and preset radio stations after.

If resetting does not work, you will need to take it to an authorized Kenwood service center for repair. There is no other end user method for ejecting the disc.

let me know if you need more help with this, but please remember to list the model number. Thanks

I have a cd stuck in my kenwood kvt 719 head unit and the touch screen controls for the dvd are not appearing.


Have you tried hitting the "Reset" button on the head unit?

The procedure is on page 7 of the owner's manual under the heading "How to reset your unit"

Here's the URL for the Owner's Manual:
http://inform3.kenwoodusa.com/manuals/KVT-719DVD.pdf

Per the owner's manual, you're supposed to call Kenwood technical support if the display doesn't correctly reset or come back on and/or if the disc won't eject.
