Kenwood ktv617dvd Power shuts off then comes back on by itself?

Hi i have had this stereo for awhile and have had this problem with it for some time actually since it was installed the stereo plays just fine then all of a sudden it will shut off on its own and stay off for no longer than maybe 1 minute then it will turn back on by itself and i dont know if the stereo is doing this or if it is my car my car is a 2002 Cadillac Deville, ssometimes it wont do this at all and it isnt when i hit bumps or anything so i know no wires are touching anywhere. When i first bought this car the factory stereo never had a problem like this so please anybody out there with the solution would greatly be appriciated thank you...

    Yeah i might try that but i am getting a kinetik battery and gonna run all my stereo and video equip. to the new battery freeing up my car battery for the cars needs this might be the problem too because the car manual said if the car senses something is not getting enough power it will shut down the less needed (like wipers lighters maybe the stereo)to power other important things in the car so for now i will try running a wire from the fuse box to the stereo to see if this helps or fixes the problem thanks.

It sounds like there is a short somewhere in your wiring. If the problem got worse when you installed the aftermarket stereo then it may be on the factory side of the plug. You may try powering the stereo by some other means. For example, try a wire with an inline fuse directly from the fuse block to the power wire on the stereo. You can also tap into the ignition wire that way the only way it will get power is when the key is turned on. Don't forget the inline fuse if you try it that way. I had to do that with a stereo I once had.

    If the car isn't getting enough power you may want to get the battery and altenator checked. I had a vehicle once that had a similar problem and upgraded the altenator to higher charging problem but i hope everything works with the new power plan

CD player doesn't play


It's possible the laser lens has been knocked out of alignment. If there's a code after the ERROR message, you may be able to find a solution by reading the manual for the unit - they can often be found online if you don't have one. Good luck!

Gigaware no sound


If you have audio cables from your source connected to the capture card, then your Recording device needs to be the Line In of the capture card.

If you connect the source to the Line In on the computer, then you use that as the default recording device. Until I set this, the default audio recording device was my microphone (not connected at the time). In Windows, you need the Manage Audio Devices Recording tab. (In Windows 7 and 8, it's under Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Sound > Manage Audio Devices.)

If you are recording something playing on your computer, then the stereo mix option may work.

You should be able to use any video&audio software if the drivers are compatible. Thus the software you used for the video recording should work. (Stereo mix may be an exception - not all sound cards actually work when you try to record that content.)

I hope this helps.

How do i take out the factory stereo for a 2008 mazda 6, in order to install an after market amp?

Hi Lo Adapters
Hi/Low adapters are devices that installers use to convert a speaker level stereo to RCA levels so it can be hooked to an external car stereo amplifier. You can cut the speaker wires and hook the hi/lo adapter right up or you can tap onto existing speaker wires without cutting them so the speakers still play while the tap gives you a connection to the hi/lo device for adding something like a subwoofer amp to the existing speakers.... We have hi lo converters in TWO CHANNEL and FOUR CHANNEL configurations and we have them WITH and WITHOUT adjustments.. The adjustable hi/lo converters allow you to fine tune the hi/lo device to match other levels in the car or to make sure the match between your stereo and amplifier is a good match.. The adjustable line converters are the most popular.. We also have some specialty hi lo converters that have special radio plugs on them that may plug right into your factory stereo.
Now you can install an amplifier with your factory radio or install a new radio with your factory amplifier!

Delco stereo wont play cd-r (mp3)


I believe CDA extensions are actually just shortcuts to the audio file and not the actual audio file. You will want to convert your MP3's to .wav in order to play them in your radio. Roxio and Nero version 4 and higher will automatically do this for you and a version should have come with your computer or CD burner. Just place the MP3's in the record section and select output audio CD.

Trouble with car stereo


Hoang00, to change the time on JVC's i believe you hold down "source" for a while and a menu pops up.
SSwaim, sounds like a grounding problem. Check the connections behind the dash, possibly a couple came loose. I would say possibly a bad car battery but the headlights thing points to a grounding issue to me.

Seems to only play in Mono


Karen - Is it only the FM section that is giging you trouble? Does Stereo work for the other inputs - VCR/DVD/Turntable?
Is that stereo button ONLY for the FM section?
