Question about Kenwood DNX7100 Car Video Player

1 Answer

The entire unit stop working

My car battery drained after leaving my car headlights on all night. Then, after recharging the battery and getting the car running again, my Kenwood video player/radio could not be turned back on. The entire unit is now dead; not even lit. Some people have told me that the unit may have a code which is needed in order to turn it back on. Is this true. Does anyone know how to turn the unit back on?

I bought this deck off a guy so I have no manual. I need to know what the wire "ill" is for? It also wont play dvds, can you tell me what I need to do to get that to work. Thank you

"ill" stands for illumination, so when you turn your headlights on, the screen dims so that the glare from the screen doesn't distract you at night time. unfortunately pioneer dvd units are renowned for having issues with playing of dvds if they have had a rough time. my first suggestion is to run a dry touch lens cleaner (designed to clean source units and laptop computer lenses) through and see what happens after that, dust is a big deal to these kind of units.
cheers (dont forget to rate :-) )

KDR606. When installed runs down battery overnight. Battery is OK. Connections as per installation instructions.New unit replacing Toyota factory radio/cassette.

disconnect the battery and measure the current flow.
measurement of more than 100ma (1/10 amp) will drain the battery.
if you have an external power amp connected,check to see that the "remote" is working correctly and not leaving the amp on.
If it only the deck by inself,take out it's inline fuse and see if the battery is still losing power.
Maybe the installer has made a mistake

Remote wire went out

Use the keyed red wire from the back of your unit(this means when the car is on, so is the amp) or use a switch to power it on and off(i don't recomend this because you can accidentally leave it on alllll night long. but it is a solution. If you're radio remote wire went out, check it as soon as it comes out of the unit to see if you have power there, maybe it's cut somewhere along the way. good luck

Dim Mode

Make sure the orange wire with white stripe is connected to your dash illumination/parking lamp circuit. There should be a tag on it that says 'ILLUM' (unless the installer clipped it). That should dim the display whenever your lights are on.

If that doesn't do it enough I think your going to have to dial down the brighness - and that will do it for all functions.

Remote control problems

Replace your battery in the remote. Dont leave something sitting on the remote that is pressing a button down, or it will drain your battery

JVC KD-AVX33 stopped transmintting sound to speakers.....

I am experiencing battery drain from this unit. It gets blazing hot while not in use! I'm thinking the only option I have left is to install a switch on the 12v constant power wire, but then I'd have to set it up all over again each time I get in my car. I don't know what else to do. Stupid JVC with their stupid customer service reps. There will be no JVC products in my future.

No Display When Face Is Put On Unit

the same sort of thing happens to my unit.. try cleaning the electrical contacts on the back of the face-plate and the front of the "bare" head unit. Be careful not to bend any of the pins. a pencil eraser works well to get light oxidation up.. you can go over the contacts with a q-tip and some alcohol to do a final cleaning also.. make sure the car is off while you do this. Also, with my face plate, if the display is off after attaching it, pushing on the right side of it (gently but firmly) will get the lights and display to come on.. it seems to stay lit after I do that. hope it helps.

Disconnecting the cables shouldnt have hurt it. Make sure you got the plugged back in ALL the way and try again. Post results here.
