Question about Kenwood KRC-379R Cassette Player

Setting the station

After taking my car in to have the alternator altered the radio would suddenly tune only to odd numbers e.g. 89.9, 90.1, 90.3 etc. Does anyone know how to fix this so it settles on odd and even numbers??

Battery power the radio, so has nothing to do with the alternator.
The first that you should try doing is to reset the radio, check the manual.

Let me know
Thanks

    Take the face of the player out and you will see a small pin hole. Use a pin to push the botton and reset the player.

    The other option is to take the batter cable off for 12hr, and pluge back in that should also reset the player.



    Thanks

How i change the radio station jump from jumping from odd numbers to even numbers for example i want these stations in my radio 102.0,98.0,92.0..etc


Tune into 102.0 then hold button "1" for a few seconds (you may hear a beep as it registers). Tune into 98.0 and then hold button "2" for a few seconds. Tune into the next station and then hold "3" and so on. Now when you press "1" it will go to 102.0 "2" will go to its' preset and so on.

I cannot tune the radio to lots of local stations , most of them with even frequencies (such as 88/0, 91.8, 104.0 etc. The tuner stops only at odd numbers and at only selected stations. It is also very...


The only thing I could find in the manual that might possibly solve this problem, is a "reset".

From the manual:

Press the reset button on the
panel holder. (The clock setting
and preset stations stored in
memory are erased.) (See page
2.)


You can get a copy of the manual here. I hope this helps and good luck. Please rate my reply - thanks.

How to change tuner to pick up all frequence's eg: goes from 95.5 to 95.7 how do i get it to change to 95.6 thanks jason


It will only tune into odd numbered stations because US radio station only broadcast in odd number stations (ex 95.5,95.7,96.3). You can change the area. Area 1 is North America, Area 2 is other areas. Press "Menu"->"Setup"->"Tuner"->"Tuner Area", then select 1 or 2. After setting, press and hold "Menu" for at least 2 seconds. This may give you the frequency you are looking for.

Will only tune into odd no didgets 98.1 98.3


On many imported cars , the radios have options for the radio to be used in different areas of the world (UK/EUROPE : ASIA : USA+Americas etc. )

These different areas of the world use different  frequencies (with different tuning increments )  

If you have a MENU button on your radio , see if you can find the Area  choice option.

Once found , then it is just a matter of switching to your particular  area

My kenwood 45wx4 is only tuning to the odd number radio station


In generic terms, you need to change the zone or area to Europe (probably from US).
Typically this is done via the menu function and looking for something like ZONE or AREA and then changing the setting to indicate EUROPE.

The radio does not search on even numbers (89,8) only on odds numbers (89,9) is it posible to chance that?? My car is 2006 Tacoma


Why? North American radio stations are only broadcast on "odd" frequencies - x.1, x.3, etc.

AM radio tuner set as MW tuner. How to switch to U.S.A. AM mode?


AM is just another name for MW. The Radio should tune to a strong signal regardless of the frequency the radio is set to. It should also sweep the entire frequency looking for stations. I'm assuming it has a channel scan setting, plus options to set a number for the station. AM/MW are very much dependent on the position of the either internal or external Ariel. If you have the radio in the wrong position or you have some electrical equipment nearby it could block the signal for the station you want, but not affect the others. Which might explain why it can't find the station you want.
