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.

Kenwood KVT-817 brain, Is the brain needed or can I use without?

Not much you can do my friend , I tried locating and using my resources to find you a Brain and it looks like its discontinued, Im sorry to say but this guy played you, he sold you the head unit without the brain, its really messed when people take advantage of honest people like yourself. Try ebay here and there if not your just going to have to upgrade my friend, sorry.

Good luck,

Kenwood kvt817 dvd player says

Same thing happened to me on 1 that I installed. There is a long molex cable on back of the head unit that goes to a tunr/amplifiwe usually mounted under the seat. This is the ontroll brain. It is either non existant, or you need to plug it back in behind the stereo. Mine was the same way,mounted in a Ford Escape, it somehow vibrated out! Go figure. Hopefully this silves it. Let me know.

Kenwood in-dash dvd player kvt817dvd cuts out

Hi there,

inside the unit there will be a small battery, this will need replacing as its not holding its charge, the battery is just like a watch battery, as soon as this is sorted it will work fine.

The battery is for holding system information like for instance the time and date, and all over things that you might have programed with it.

Hope this helps.

Please rate me

Kenwood kvt817dvd powers up after reset but cuts out after src

I removed my brain from beneath my seat and exposed all wires and connections. I have found that on mine (kvt-815) there were two pinched wires- 1 for a speaker and the other the remote wire. I respliced these sections and tested my radio again. It appears to be working now and stays on again. I'm guessing one of the wires must have been touching something metal under the seat (seat frame) and grounding out. If the unit doesn't power on at all, check the fuse first. Otherwise, I would  inspect every wire like I did and maybe you'll find a pinched (grounded) wire. Maybe I just got lucky... but at least it's working again and I don't have to replace the brain! Hope this helps.
