CD player won't play after pressing the play button on all tracks
The CD rotates after it has been insurted anything from 5 to 10 seconds then stops and whatever button is pressed the CD does not rotate again. The display will show each track only when pressing the advance button and then only for about 3 seconds and then returns to zero. All other buttons do nothing. It sounds as if the lazer is trying to read the disc on entry, do you think the lazer needs changing or does it just need adjustment and is this easy to do?
Re: CD player won't play after pressing the play button...
This problem is usually caused by dust or smog accumulating on the laser lens assembly. Unplug the unit and remove the top cover. Take a cotton swab and wet one end with glass cleaner. Wipe it gently across the lens (do not apply pressure). Use the other end of the swab to dry the lens. Reassemble the unit and test for skipping or non-playing discs.

If there is a "PROGRAM" button, then you just turn on "program", rotate the knob to what track you want and then hit ENTER. Then when you hit 'play' it will only play back that track. You'll have to repeat this for every track or manually hit the PAUSE button between tracks if you program more than one.
- Make sure you have installed AAA battery: MP3 player won't work otherwise (it does not need a battery to work as USB memory stick to transfer/delete songs or data)
- To turn-on (or off for that matter), press first button on your LHS (eg. same side as earphone plug) for 2 or 3 seconds until (blue) LED is on: if you press button too long after the LED is on, it will switch the player off!
- When the LED is on, stop pressing this button: it is ready to play the MP3 track by pressing on this same button until the LED starts flashing (LED will keep on flashing while track is playing).
- If you want to skip this track and get to the next track, quickly press and release the next (e.g. middle) button.
- The third button (e.g. nearest to the USB plug), quickly press and release, is used to rewind or go back to previous track.
- Volume control is also performed by pressing and holding down the second or third buttons
Common Kenwood Security Codes Many Kenwood radios are configured with the same security codes:
KCAR - This seems to be a "backdoor" to some Kenwood models. 3051 - This is the security code which is printed in the manual of many Kenwood models. 1234 - This is a security code commonly chosen by Kenwood owners. Entering Your Kenwood Security Code If the car battery fails or is disconnected, the Kenwood will ask for the security code.
procedure to enter your security code differs on various models of
Kenwood car stereos. Here are three of the more common procedures:
Type 1 During
the code request mode, while holding the DISP key depressed, press and
hold the Volume UP or DOWN key for 3 seconds until the "..." display
disappears. Enter the security code using your Kenwood remote. Type 2 Press the "Auto" button and "Track up" on the face of radio at the same time until the four dash lines disappear. Enter the security code using your Kenwood remote. Type 3: Model# DPX-4020 and DPX-4030 Press and hold the 1 then the 6 preset keys until the display shows the letter 'C'. Enter the security code using your Kenwood remote. Entering Letters on your Kenwood Remote To

A Security Code Bug in some Kenwoods There
is a reported bug in the security code handling of some Kenwood
stereos. In models with thie bug, the security code is stored
incorrectly. The workaround is to enter the wrong security code.
models with this bug, you have to decrement the third character of the
security code by one. If your security code was 1111, you would enter
your security code as 1101. If your security code was 9999, you would
be sure to format using the MENU mode on the unit and ADVANCE MENU then FORMAT
Press and hold the search/menu button for half a second in stop mode. The menu screen is displayed. Rotate the shuttle switch to select "Advanced Menu" > and press the play/stop button to confirm. Rotate the shuttle switch to select "Format" and press the play/stop button to confirm. Rotate the shuttle switch to select "OK" and press the play/stop button to confirm. "Formatting..." blinks and start formatting. When formatting is complete "complete" is displayed. This is how i get rid of the problem "Format Error".
I have had one of these for many years: Switch it on, you must make sure the two transit screws at the back of each deck are fully unscrewed and loose, let the machine displays settle down, then insert a CD, then press the 'reset' button. There is a built-in delay of about 11 seconds before the deck begins to read. After this the machine should then display the first track number, and pressing the big red button will start play.
Pressing the 'reset' button again stops playback and the CD spins down, but if you leave the CD in there it will eventually re-index and cue up again. This feature is to enable fast, one-button CD changing and it works very well in practice, as the 11 second delay is enough time to take one CD out and get another in there before it tries to read it again.
To stop playback just press the 'reset' button (this is the most used button!) and take out the CD. After the delay, the machine will try to read a CD as normal, but display 'no CD' on the display. There is no stop button, as this unit was designed for continuous use in a club or disco.
Hold down the Display/Menu function button (one of those three buttons on the left of the unit) for about 3-4 seconds until the display reads "t set". When this appears, push the track forward button once (>>|) so the display reads "beep"; now press the play pause button (>||) once. The display will now say "on", push the track forward button (>>|) once to make it read "off"; now push the stop play button. You're done. Enjoy the silence.
