Connecting iPod to Kenwood DDX7029?

I have the Kenwood DDX7029 DVD/stereo in my car and in order to connect my iPod I was advise to purchase cable KCA-iP300V, which I have...however, on connecting via the USB port everything works apart from getting any sound! iPod displays that it's connected tho KENWOOD, and LCD in car has iPod soung/art work etc. Can anyone help??
Thanks in advance!

Just ignore the airplane mode prompt and if your wiring is correct everything should work.
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.

My kenwood was disconted from the car battery now I can turn it on


Try checking all of your fuses. There should be a fuse box in the engine compartment and another inside the vehicle, probably under the dash or in one of the kick panels. There should also be a fuse in the back of the kenwood.

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.

No sound on ddx 514 kenwwod..when hooked up ipod to usb??


This is a faily simple fix. First of all, this USB will not be able to playback audio from an iPod or iPhone without using the correct cable. The cable needed has both USB and an audio plug on it. Here is a link to the Kenwood cable you will need:

If you would like playback of iPod video, you will need this cable:

A local authorized Kenwood stereo dealer should have these in stock. I hope this information was helpful.

How to hookup an IPOD to a pioneer avh-p6500 car stereo


If your car stero has a stereo audio input connector then you can plug a cable in the headphone on the IPod and the other end of the cable into the stereo audio input on the car stereo.
If you don't have an stereo input on the car stereo then you can buy a FM transmitter that is powered by the car's cigarette socket, connect the IPod to the transmitter, switch on the car radio and tune it to the FM station that matches the FM transmitter.
You can now listen to your IPod from the car radio.

Dnx7100 ipod problem


The USB source is not for Ipods, from what I understand. The Ipod needs to be connected with the Ipod cable, $50 or so. I think it is a high speed connection.

No video from a new 160G ipod


There is a known incompatibility with 6th gen iPods and the DNX7100. Try to find a 5.5 gen iPod or wait until Kenwood releases a software patch.
