Question about Kenwood KVT-512 Car DVD Player

1 Answer

KVT-512 reverts to "CALL" screen.

Anytime I start my truck and even when driving, this deck goes to a call screen and I have to go into sources and reselect my desired source. It is pretty anoying as it sometimes will do this 3 times in a 5 minute period. By call screen I mean it says call on the top left corner of the screen and nothing else. Yes this has bluetooth setup and it works flawlessly and this screen came up from day one with this deck when the bluetooth wasn't even installed.

In your wiring harness there is a brown wire posbily. I ran into a similar problem on a newer Chrysler vehicle. Make sure that brown in NOT hooked up and you should be ok.

I plug my ipod to the stereo but my stereo screen still says discconected


you have to go to the kenwood site and download the firmware update go to this page http://www.kenwood.com/cs/ce/mm/firmware/2008/eng.html

after you download the file unzip it and burn it with either nero or roxio, as a data file insert the cd on your kvt-512, if it reads DISK ERROR, press the reset button on the front of the stereo, once the screen comes back up select the DVD function, the system update should start from there. let it finish once it does then you'll be able to plug in your ipod. oh and ofcourse for this you should know that you need the ipod adapter, depending on what you want to do with it for instance i have the KCA-iP300V which allows me to view videos from my ipod as well.

Kenwood KVT-512 with bluetooth setup troubles


With my BMW I had to connect both the solid blue (pwr ant) wire and the blue with white stripe (p conn) to the solid blue wire from the factory harness.

It isn't obvious that either of these are needed as the KVT-512 has it's own power supply but the way most factory power amps are installed the power from the KVT-512 is not used and the car manufacturers power amp needs to be turned on.

If you are listening to the radio the pwr ant wire will turn on the power amp, this didn't seem obvious because the BMW doesn't have a power antenna. And when you are using the DVD player or the iPod connection you need the P Conn wire to turn on the car power amp as the ant pwr is disabled because you are no longer using the radio and Kenwood assumes you will not need the antenna so no power to this lead.

Solder all three wires together and you should have sound all the time.
