How to turn off this blasted DEMO mode on MP235

Hi folks For a Kenwood KDC-MP235 I've followed the instructions carefully - entered standby mode using the SRC key, then held the control button at least two seconds. Still spams out the demo messages a few seconds later. Any hints appreciated ! Thanks Jeff

Re: How to turn off this blasted DEMO mode on MP235

Once in standby you have to press and hold the button to get into the menu. Once in the menu, you use the joystick control on the right to navigate to "Demo" and toggle it to "off" (can't remember off the top of my head... you either have to press the joystick in and hold it to toggle or just move it up/down...). Once done, just press Source to exit.

I have a Kenwood KDC-MP235 installed now and bought a cable to run from my MP3 player into the aux input on the front of the unit but I can not get it to play or find an aux input switch anywhere on the...

hey dear, just do this if you wanna set AUX function: turn off your head unit.. when is in standby mode, press the volume knob and hold it pressed until it appears some words... then start moving on to differente options by clicking left-right of the right knob... you will find aux on-off

not sure if standby mode, or completely turned off (to turn it off just click the SRC mode a few seconds)

Turn the unit onto standby then press and hold the menu button then scroll down to demo using the toggle switch on the right then press and hold the toggle switch for a few seconds and it will change to demo off. It's not too difficult but you are correct, it doesn't tell you correctly in the installation instructions.
