Question about Kenwood KDC-X692 Car CD/ MP3 Player

1 Answer

Volume turned up, kenwood shuts off briefly...

My kenwood will work fine until I turn the volume up. Then it shuts off completely and then turns back on again..This continues on again and off again. I have checked ground wires, loose wires, connections, disconnected amp., checked fuses, still same thing happens with or without the amp connected or with or without the speakers connected. The CD player is installed in a boat with a 400 watt amp and blaupunkt speakers. I've noticed the stereo gets hot to the touch towards the top in the back. Any suggestion? I have a Kenwood KDC-X692 with new Kenwood speakers, no amp. When I turn the volume up to 25 the radio shuts off, turns back on and I don't understand why? My speakers aren't bolted completely down and they are saying that is why. I've never heard of such a thing. Could this be the reason? Or why would this happen? Thanks

    When I took it in they said the wires were connected incorrectly and stated "they" said they reconnected them correctly, but I wonder since I didn't pay them to hook them up. I had gone in thinking it was the radio. I'll look into that. They say it's because I haven't bolted the speakers down real good yet and that could be causing it when I turn up the volume which makes no sense to me. I really appreciate your response. Thanks so much.

    I went in because mine was doing the same thing. But my front wires were connected to the rear. & the rear to the front. Instead of them admitting the mistake. they said I had a bad radio & to send it back 2 Kenwood. IDK if the wirin had something to do with the radio working, though.

Kenwood kdc-mp142 why does it shut down when


Have you checked your speaker wiring as it could be you have some wires crossed ie: negative feeding the positive side causing the shut down & check the Ohms if at high volume you are trying to drag to many Ohms it will also cause the built in amp to shut down to protect the system dont keep incresing the volume as the strain will do damage

Kenwood new sterio shuts off when turning up volume


You may have a short in a speaker. Check to see that the wire terminals on the speaker itself aren't touching any metal. Even 1 terminal touching metal will cause issues. Hope this helps.

Volume turned up, kenwood shuts off briefly...


I had this same exact problem when my last older Kenwood Marine stereo cooked itself while I had it up loud for a few weekends on the lake. (smelled like it had burned inside). I went out and bought a new Kenwood KMR-550u stereo deck. (I do not have an additional amp). I hooked it up to the exact connections where my older Kenwood stereo unit had been hooked up, as I never had a problem with this for the past three years until it failed after smelling of burning elelectrical. I had chalked the problem up to heavy rain we had one day. Every time I turned up the volume, sometimes up to 27 out of 35 possible, or 29, or 32, the stereo would suddenly shut off as if I had turned it off. After a few seconds the stereo would come back on, but unless I was quick enough to turn down the volume it would do it again right away. Of course on a boat, we were beached in a cove and the engine was not running when I encountered this. I searched the internet finding hundreds of similar complaints and several dozen theories of all types, but only a couple that pointed me towards the power (voltage) idea as the problem. I put a volt meter on the positive & negative wires powering the stereo. I watched as I gradually turned up the volume, the voltage on the power wire gradually decreased from 12.5 volts, down into the 11 range, and as it hit 10.9 or 10.8 volts it shut off typically around a volume of 32. The red power wire in my boat that never seemed to have an issue with my old stereo until it fried was determined to actually be inadequate for the power flow for the new Kenwood, and probably was the culprit of my failed older unit. I offer this sound advice: Run a new pair of positive & negative wires directly from the battery (with an appropriate fuse of course (the deck has a 10 amp fuse in it's back so I would use that at the battery) to the stereo. Check the voltage as you turn the volume up into the high 20's and low 30's to ensure you are still getting voltage in the mid to high 11-12 volt range. The stereo is designed to require a minimum of 10.8 volts to operate, and when it drops below that it protects itself and shuts down.
