Question about Kenwood Excelon KVT-915DVD Car DVD Player

1 Answer

No sub Screen blanks out when watching a video. Normally, I would shut the unit down and cut it back on to reset the unit. It usually works but now you can vaguely see the picture. But during really hot days the picture display is perfect. What can I do to fix the problem. Thanks David

Jvc kw avx820 no sound

Check the speaker connections it looks like there may be a feedback signal going back to the internal amp. If those are fine then the amp itself is clipping and you need to have the player checked.

I just installed the unit, reset it twice, and the DVD screen is not working, and is saying "WARNING: Please Stop Watch Video" What does that mean?

I do not know this specific unit, but it sounds like a safety device built into the unit so you cant watch the screen whilst driving.. it may be that you have ommitted a sensor wire or got a sensor wire reversed.

Re-check all your wiring and make sure that the ignition live and the battery live wires have not been reversed...

How to hook up my rem amp wire to this player it does not have

If by saying amp outputs you are refering to the RCA jacks on back of the head unit (Left and Right RCA jacks usually labeled FRONT, REAR, SUB, etc...) then you do have options even if your head unit doesn't provide a SUB channel.  These RCA jacks/amp outputs carry the signal (music or whatever) at a lower voltage (and is typically more like DC voltage as there is a ground reference which is 0 volts and signal rides on the positive voltage), providing a cleaner signal to the amp which does all the work.  The wires behind the amp that you connect directly to the speakers is typically amplified by the head unit itself and is a much higher voltage level and varies from negative to positive ( AC voltage.).

You could use the other channels (FRONT or REAR) if available, (a specific SUB amp output cuts all the higher frequencies out, passing just the lower subwofer frequencies inside the head unit).

if you want to strive for a more efficient use of your sub, use a low-pass/SUBwoffer filter (a crossover) in between the Head unit and amp, thus providing the amp with subwoffer signal, (or if for some odd reason you have SPEAKER level sub connections you can use a line output converter which will let you run RCA to the amp.)

Hope this helps u understand why I couldn't just say get a new stereo nor could I just say use splitters on available amp outs.

I cant turn my sub on

I had the same iss and what I finally figured out through the use of the book and just messing with it is- go to the menu seletion screes should be the upper right button on the screen or what would be a main menu of all the options - then scroll down to the next menu page there should be one button listed as standby- click it- then go back through your menus and adjust where needed for the sub. Then just adjust all you things to max- it worked for me. the lables for audio nad interface still had a lock on it but after hitting the standby button to can then change your settings that were previously locked up. then once done just go back to your tuner or dvd etc.. to get out of set up menu.

Pioneer AVIC-D3 Audio Problems

Sounds like a problem with the sound chip in the stereo. Disconnect the rca cables from the subs and check to see if the audio returns. If so. try using a different rca connection in the back. Also i think on them radio's if there is a built in sub drive you need to turn that off if you are using a amp to run the subs.

Jensen vm9511ts cuts out

It sounds like the phone mute is going on and off, but I'm just guessing because I don't know your grounds, speaker wire hookup configuration, etc. Look at the screen when the music cuts off and goes back on and if you see a little red phone with the cross through speaker symbol (aka mute) it's probably the phone mute feature which is supposed to be hooked up to bluetooth and mute the stereo when you get a call. Like I said I'm just guessing, but if so there's a brown wire in the back that needs to be hooked up.

Display loses power

Verify the yellow wire that comes out from the back of the unit(the small plug on the left of the back of the unit).This wire usually not stay in the plug.

Blue screen will not go away

The problem is that you're trying to bypass a safety feature. Newer video head units are smart enough to know when you've just grounded the brake switch wire so you can watch it while you're driving. Try hooking it up to your parking brake wire.

My Head Unit stop working/shut down unintentionally

Mine is doing exactly the same thing! I suspect its a protection mode- the unit is overheating. I'm not sure what to do, there is no mention in the manual.
