Re: Bluetooth Icon not working

I also had the same problem, but the remote control button did nothing.

In the end I pressed the reset button on the front panel with a ball point pen. It resets some of the settings, but keeps your radio station presets, and the bluetooth function was instantly restored.
It even remembered the bluetooth settings I had previously set up.

Re: Bluetooth Icon not working

I had the same problem with my nokia n80.

The solution i found is:

with the remote go to bluetooth phone. then on the remoete av menu. now you can select bluetooth as it's not grey anymore. i would advise search device with a new pin and not the standard 0000.

Good luck.

Let me know if it worked. It did for me. (eu model)

How to pair your phone to the bluetooth on th kenwood kvt-514

Go into your Setup menu and scroll down to bluetooth settings.

From here you should see a screen that says "HFP connect device", "A2DP connect device" and "Receiver pin code".

Press the "Set" button to the right side of "A2DP" and it should bring you to another screen that says Pair device.

Go onto your phone settings and make sure you have your bluetooth setting on your phone set to "make discoverable"

Press the search button on the Kenwood unit on the right side and it will start scanning for available devices in the vicinity

Also press the Search button on your phone so it also starts scanning.

Next you should get a message on both your phone that shows the Kvt-514 and also a message on the Kenwood that shows either the model of your phone or your "nickname" (if you named your phone)

Select the Kvt-514 on your phone and it will prompt you for the pin code that was on the first bluetooth setup screen...most likely 1111 (you can also set a different pin code using the "set" button to the right side of the "Receiver Pin Code" on the first bluetooth setup screen)

Enter the Pin code and select "Pair" on your phone.

You should get a confirmation on both the Kvt-514 and your phone that they are connected and you're good to go.

I have a Kenwood DNX7100 car stereo with bluetooth connection capability. The unit lost information on my Samsung U540 integration. Manual suggests hitting "Select" under the Setup Menu but this button...

First of all do you have a bluetooth kit for your head unit? if so ensure it is plugged in correctly. if it is, then you need to activate bluetooth on your phone and make it visible to other devices, once this is done search from the phone for the bluetooth on the head unit. It should read BT100 or similar. Once it has found it all you need to do is pair them normally using the code 1234.

Hope this helps

Can't keep bluetooth connected from my motorola w385 to my Blackberry curve

this is normal behaviour. it looks like it disconnects, but in fact it transfers your phonebook. afterwards (when you see on the avic display that all entries are transferred) you need to set your phone's bluetooth setting to "handsfree profile". then it connects again

JVC avx33 bluetooth greyed out

The bluetooth problem has resolved itself after I was away for a week and my car battery died. After I boosted my car and drove around to charge the battery the bluetooth icon works again without a reset message coming up. Because the unit was without power for an extended period it must have reset the memory although it did keep my original bluetooth device that was paired before the problem.

Someone on here also mentioned pressing the reset button for 10 secs which might perform the same thing.

Hope this helps anyone else having the same problem I've been having for months now.

No sound when making a phone call

Try to delete paired phone and to make the connection again.
Once my phone was connected (showed on the screen), but no sound !?! :( and I couldn't access the phone (address book, call list...)
I deleted it from the unit ("SRC">"Bluetooth Phone">"AV Menu">"ENT">"Delete Pair">"Yes") and make the connection again and everything was OK.

Bluetooth transfer of phone book?

I got a solution:

Used hardware:

Pioneer DEH-P65BT
Jailbroken!! Iphone 3g FW: 3.1.2.
Mac or PC (addressbook on Mac or Outlook on Win)


- Sync your contacts trough Itunes with your PC or Mac
- Go to addressbook on Mac (or Outlook on win) and export all your contacts to a vcf file (Called Vcards in addressbook)
- Copy the vcf file to your Iphone (iphoneExplorer / SSH / DiskAid or other solution)
- Download iBluetooth (I used it from the Xsellize source)
- Set up you radio to PhoneBook Transfer (Your phone is not connected to the radio at this point)
- In iBluetooth browse to the VCards.vcf and send it to the Pioneer unit.
- It now says transfer done and the phonebook is stored.

Posted this because it took me days to get it working. Haven't found a working solution on the net.

Also transfering the phonebook from another phone isn't a solution because however the phonebook will be stored it won't be usable by your iphone. The pioneer registers the phonebook to a device so it's absolutely necesarry to transfer it from the actual iphone (or send it from a laptop with a spoofed BT-Mac that matches your iphone)

Good luck!

Kenwood 7100 dnx7100 .... bluetooth address book limitations??

yeah, I'm having Bluetooth trouble too... didn't know it has a 300 address limit??!! that's dumb. I agree, for a high end piece like this, I'd think it'd be a bit better. My problem is that my address book (which I sent to the unit one by one...) sometimes is there, sometimes is not. Kinda frustrating. Anyone know how to get your address book to be recognized all the time??

I'm sure you know this, but in order to send your contacts to the Bluetooth, you first have to disconnect the device through your phone. Then you can send them one by one. A guy at Car Toys says that the Lenwood unit is notoriously difficult with the address book situation... hope it helps.
