Contact the manufacture and tell them your kid was playing around with it and accidently locked it. They might make you send it in or/and charge you a fee. Good luck.

SOURCE: hideaway brain unit on my kenwood KVT-617 doesn't work

My KVT-617 display unit was stolen out of my dash, but they neglected to snag the items under the rear seat: the "brain" hideaway unit, the HD radio receiver, the 10 disc CD changer, the navigation unit, and the powered subwoofer.
Everything was replaced via the insurance except the sub because the new system was not compatible with the old components. Make me an offer on the items you want!

SOURCE: Kenwood KVT-512 iphone compatibility

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.

SOURCE: dont know the security code

a new eprom chip has to be installed,and proof that you did not steal the set.
best way for your tv not to get stolen is to leave a post it note that it is locked.
it is like passwording a computer,the hard drive needs to be formatted.

I have the kvt 617 I have great audio when listening to radio nut anythig else I only have subs it started doing it when i first got it and then it quit and know it is doing it again any idea?


High end kenwoods have a setting, where you can turn off the internal amp in the head unit, if the sub is the only thing that has an external amp hooked to it, and it is playing, that may be your problem. Also, if one of the speakers hooked directly to the Kenwood has a short, bad voice coil, or contacts touching metal, that can cause the amp in the Kenwood to go into protect, and you will loose sound to all the speakers.

Putting kenwood kvt 617 dvd in rear of surburan how can i bypass parking brake so movies can play while driving


On bypasses you can either hook the parking brake wire straight to ground, if that does not work you can install a toggle switch between the parking brake wire and ground so you can mimic the parking brake on off.

Ipod Classic Firmware rollback


Go to C:\Documents and Settings\*your user name*\Application Data\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPod Software Updates.
Delete the firmware you don't want, in your case it'll be "iPod_24.1.1.1".
Turn off the internet (turn off the router/whatever).
Connect the iPod, then click Restore. As iTunes cannot connect to the internet and get the newest firmware (1.1.1), it will use the latest firmware in that folder, rolling you back to 1.0.2.
