Question about Kenwood KDC-MP828 CD Player

Audio In not working

I installed the headunit and love it, everything is perfect except that there is no source for audio input. I hooked up a set of RCA cables to the Audio Input in the back however when I search for it in source I can only get CD and Tuner. The only way for me to listen to my ipod is to turn 2-zone on and that takes away from the speaker system I have set up. Any suggestions? I have looked in the manual for a solution but it was no help.

Re: Audio In not working

If i recal correctly, you need to access the menu (go to standby, then press and hold control key) and navigate to the aux in setting and turn it on, or else it does not even show as a source option.

Hello my car is equipped with a Sony CDX-L410X head unit and i want to be able to connect my ipod directly to the head unit. the head unit does not have an aux or usb port on the front does it have an...

Hello! Maybe I can help with your question. This model headunit does not support ipod control. It does not have rear or front inputs via 1/8mm jack that you could use the headphone output. You only have a couple of options here. First would be to purchase a wireless fm modulator that would transmit the ipod output through your cars antenna. (i.e. set the radio to 88.1, 88.3, etc) These can be purchased at Radio Shack, Wal-Mart, etc. The only other option would be to replace the headunit with a compatable unit. We sell a Kenwood for $139 that has a front USB port as well as the aux input. The USB on this unit reads droid phones and ipod. That model number is KDC-248U. Hope this helped! Good luck with your venture!

Can't get auxiliary to work on Pioneer Mosfet Head unit 50x4

you have to turn the AUX input on through the function menu which can be accessed by following these steps

1. with the unit on. press and hold the source button unitl the unit turns of (or goes into demo mode, which is fine)

2. depending on the model that you have, you will have to press and hold the
(volume button or the audio button), until a menu is displayed.

3 . toggle through until you find AUX 1 and AUX 2. i would turn them both on and see which one you have plugged into, then you can go back and turn the other off.

4. once you have change it to ON. press the source button to turn on. the aux option should now be in your source options.

5. also, while on AUX, you can go into the audio settings and turn up the SLA (sound level adjustment) to +4

hope this helps

No sound through speakers

are you using RCA outputs(the round red and white plugs)? if you are then your amp is not turning on and if you are hooking up speakers to your RCA's (low level) then you will not hear any audio the signal is to low. would need to know more about how you checked the ic power?? one could verify an output ic by hooking up an amp since the RCA audio signal is picked off just before the output. if the low level works but the speakers do not then you have a bad output. anything else an o-scope would be handy.

Faceplate not responding / acting very weirdly

Sounds like a bad connection with the faceplate and the multi connector that the faceplate mates with when closed. check for dirt and bent pins on both connectors. Luck

Brand New Unit Will Not Accept ANY Type of CD

I am having the same problem but only with a KDC-MP335 unit. I installed it in a 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee to the stock system, pretty easy install just matching colors for wires and everything works (Radio). but not one CD plays. it says reading and it acts as if it is playing the tracks but no sound... what is going on? did I mess up wiring it or something?
