Car Stereo in Protected Mode will Not Play Radio or CD

I own a Kenwood Car Stereo. The KDC-MP238.
While playing a CD I hit a large pot hole and the Radio went into ''Proteced'' Mode. It will no longer play CD's or the Radio.

How do I get the radio out of ''Protected'' mode.

The kenwood is approximately a year and a half old

Radio wont come on


There should be a reset button on the unit. That would probably be the first thing I would look at.

Kenwood kdc-mp238


I have the MP-283 Model and the directions are poor not doubt,
I too was also having trouble with the DEMO mode and clock adjustment.

I put the stereo in standby mode, then press and hold the control knob for 2 seconds, then release and press the bass boost/ menu button, this shold open up all the options of the setero by using the control knob up/down to scroll through the various adjustments.

There is a small hole at the bottom of the stereo face that will reset the system. I pushed a pen tip into the hole and it turned the stereo off. When I removed the pen, the system turned on and the CD ejected. Problem solved.

Security Code for Protect mode


Turn on the car so the radio is flashing "Protect." Look on the front / removable face of the stereo. On it you will find a small round hole - that's a reset button. Find a small paper clip, unfold the clip and stick it gently into the hole. The "Protect" will stop flashing, and Kenwood will be displayed. Unfortunately all your settings/presets will be gone, but at least the stereo is working again!
