    I´ve just bought over the net a new Kenwood DVD player (KVT 819) and it is supposed that its arriving home by Dec 22th or close, I downloaded the manual and I saw that it is coded for Region 1 and I live on region 4, what can I do? is there some way to change the region for the DVD?

Iv just fitted a kenwood kvt 815 to my car im trying to play a dvd and its saying region code error

Countries around the world have their own REGIONS. If your DVD unit is for the American market then it will only read and play discs that are REGION 1 or REGION FREE. Anything else it will not. REGION 1 : United States, U.S. territories REGION 2 : Europe, Middle East, Egypt, Japan, South Africa, Swaziland, Lesotho, Greenland REGION 3 : Southeast Asia, REGION 4 : Mexico, Central America, South America, Australia, New Zealand, Oceania REGION 5 : India, Afghanistan, Ukraine, Belarus, Russia REGION 6 : People's Republic of China, Hong Kong
I believe you get the idea.

Dont know the security code for kenwood kvt 617 dvd unit how can i unlock the 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.

Kenwood kvt-717 DVD..code

Have Kenwood KVT-717DVT.
It will uncurl and open screen and show only one screen. It's on "standby". The one screen shows the touch buttons "Audio", "Set Up" and "SRC". These touch button will not perform any functions.
I changed Motorhome's house batteries and this is the problem that occured.
Need the backup camera. Any solutions?

I cant unlock my kvt-617dvd

find the person who u bought the unit from either they set the code or a person did who they got it from, it should be a 4 digit numbered code, if you can't get the code u might as well use it for a paper weight. if buying a kenwood used the best thing to do is tell them you want to see it hooked up and running or I won't buy it. the very first screen that appears is the code entry if the code has been set. if the code hasn't been set, this screen should not appear. do this asure yourself, i do.
