A Security Code Bug in Some Kenwoods

I forgotted the code how can I reset the stereo


Many Kenwood radios are configured with the same security codes:
* KCAR - This seems to be a "backdoor" to some Kenwood models.
* 3051 - This is the security code which is printed in the manual of many Kenwood models.
* 1234 - This is a security code commonly chosen by Kenwood owners.

Entering your Kenwood Security Code
If the car battery fails or is disconnected, the Kenwood will ask for the security code.
The procedure to enter your security code differs on various models of Kenwood car stereos. Here are three of the more common procedures:
Type 1
* During the code request mode, while holding the DISP key depressed, press and hold the Volume UP or DOWN key for 3 seconds until the "..." display disappears.
* Enter the security code using your Kenwood remote.
Type 2
* Press the "Auto" button and "Track up" on the face of radio at the same time until the four dash lines disappear.
* Enter the security code using your Kenwood remote.
Type 3: Model# DPX-4020 and DPX-4030
* Press and hold the 1 then the 6 preset keys until the display shows the letter 'C'.
* Enter the security code using your Kenwood remote.
Entering Letters on your Kenwood Remote
To enter a letter using your Kenwood remote, press a button once for the first letter, twice for the second letter, and three times for the third letter -- then press the Track Up or Next Track key to send the letter.
To send the letter 'A', press the 2 key once and then press the Track Up key. To send the letter 'B', press the 2 key twice and then press the Track up key.
Finally, when you are done entering all of the letters, press and hold the Track Up button for 3 seconds.
The key sequence to enter the security code KCAR is:
* 5
* 5
* Track Up
* 2
* 2
* 2
* Track Up
* 2
* Track Up
* 7
* 7
* Track Up
Your Kenwood should then enter tuner mode.

Newer Kenwood models have the security information stored in non magnetic flash memory.
Once the code is set, it cannot be retrieved by a "backdoor method".
Proof of ownership is required. You can take the radio in to any AUTHORIZED Kenwood retailer - and in 10 minutes - they can have your radio reset for you.
If all else fails, you can send your stereo back to Kenwood to have the security code reset. They require proof of purchase.

This can be a receipt, or a used car invoice.

A Security Code Bug in some Kenwoods There is a reported bug in the security code handling of some Kenwood stereos. In models with thie bug, the security code is stored incorrectly. The workaround is to enter the wrong security code.
In models with this bug, you have to decrement the third character of the security code by one. If your security code was 1111, you would enter your security code as 1101. If your security code was 9999, you would enter 9989.

Sending Your Radio Back to Kenwood If all else fails, you can send your stereo back to Kenwood to have the security code reset.

I can't dial out.


The Phone application on the BlackBerry smartphone automatically converts phone numbers that include letters into the associated numbers.
To key a phone number that contains letters, press the right Shift key or the Alt key and type. The letters appear on your screen, but the BlackBerry smartphone translates them into the appropriate numbers when the phone call is made.
For example, to call 1-877-BLK-BERR (1-877-255-2377) from your BlackBerry smartphone,
  1. Open the Phone application.
  2. Type 1877.
  3. Press and hold the Alt or right Shift key and type BLKBERR.
  4. Display the menu and select Call 1877BLKBERR or press Enter. When the phone number is dialed, the letters are converted to numbers on the screen.
  5. To end the phone call, hold down the Escape key.
To return to the Home screen from any other screen, press the End key.
To lock the device, set a password. Hold the * key.
To unlock the device, press the * key. Click Unlock. Type your password.
To lock the keyboard, hold the * key.
To unlock the keyboard, press the * key

To switch the input language, hold the Alt key and press the Enter key. Continue to hold the Alt key and select a language. Release the Alt key to switch to that language.
To switch back to your original input language, press the Alt key + the Enter key.

I hope this helps
