Re: unable to turn off DEMO MODE

See my post under the MP235 model, probably same deal. Have to enter the menu function then hit standby, then toggle until you get to the DEMO MODE readout, THEN hold the phreakin' control button in for 2 secs. Least that's how it worked with the MP235.

Re: unable to turn off DEMO MODE

Had the same problem - I solved it by pressing the menu button, pressing the control knob up repeatedly until demo mode on appeared, then pressed the control in for 2-10 seconds, demo mode off appeared. Press menu button - voila.

Re: unable to turn off DEMO MODE

Press as many buttons as you can, then hurl it outta the window, make a cup of tea. then press and hold the function button while in standby then select the option with the scroler then turn demo mode off by holding the other button down for 2 seconds

Re: unable to turn off DEMO MODE

It took me a few hours to figure it out, you need to put it in standby mode, then hold the control knob for 2 secs. when it shows up in display mode, you need to hit the menu key (left of the knob), then you can change it.

Kenwood DPX-U5130BT Demo mode

When you hooked it up you didn't hook up the right wires because there is 12volt constant wire that keeps the unit to save things so when you turn it off it's not getting any power at all so it just resets

Can not set clock on Kenwood KDC228 CD Receiver

I spent the better part of an hour trying to figure out how to get the "Clk Adj" screen on the KDC-MP228. Here is the solution (dont waste your time reading the manual, it does not explain this). First, I had screwed up my settings so I did a factory reset (hold in the reset button). Then, you need to turn off Demo Mode (in standby click the Menu button and then use the control button to navigate to "Demo On". Hold the control button in to turn Demo on or off (this is different from all of the other controls in the manual). Now that Demo is off, click Menu button again and use the Control button to navigate through the options, one of which is "Clk Adj". At that point, you can follow the instructions in the manual (Hold in Control button until the clock blinks (approx 2 seconds), then use the FM/AM buttons to change the Hours and the << >> buttons to change the Minutes). Press the Control button again to save your changes. I cannot believe how difficult it was to set the clock on this device, someone should smack the developer who wrote that code.

Cant turn off the demo mode

There is often confusion in the way the manual states how to achieve removing demo mode. Because this is listed in the "Menu System" section of the manual and assumes you read from page 1 of the manual that you will know to enter the menu in this section of the manual. Here is step by step instructions on removing demo mode on your unit. 1. Go to standby mode 2. Press and hold the menu button till the menu comes up 3. Press control knob towards AM or FM to scroll through menu till you locate "Demo On" 4. Press control knob straight in for approximately 3 seconds till it switches to "Demo Off" 5. Hit menu button again to exit menu
