Question about Kenwood KVT-617DVD Car DVD Player

1 Answer

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

Where can I find the memory wire for the radio


Car radios don't have a 'memory wire'. Memory is held in integrated circuit chips called EPROMS, (electronically programmable, read only modules).

Where can I find the connections the go on the back of the stereo


Usually behind the stereo in the console. Either a square or rectangle in shape. You can obtain adapters for differing units that allows the use of the original wiring harness without rewiring. Just a simple plug and play option.

Bluetooth LG to my Kenwood


you need to make sure both the Kenwood and the LG have bluetooth enabled. Then you pair the two using the pairing function in the LG. Hopefully this should enable you to play music from LG on Kenwood and also receive calls. As you have not provided any model numbers it is difficult to say whether the phone and your Kenwood audio systems are compatible.

Best to go to this website and select the correct model numbers and find out which features in your LG phone will work with your kenwood.
