Settig time on clock

I'm trying to set standard time on my KDC516S. I downloaded a manual from the internet, and have been following the instructions. I cannot get the time display to flash so I can manually set the time. Immediately after MENU appears SECURITY appears. The only thing that flashes is the colon between the hours and minutes. What do I need to do.

Downloaded manual for Kenwood KDC-MP528, but instructions for setting clock time is sketchy, and can't get " clock adj." to come up, no matter in what sequence I hit instructed buttons....

Try putting the radio in standby mode and then hold the menu button in for a few seconds. Once you enter the menu, use the am or fm buttons to scroll through the menu. Then hold the seek up or seek down for a few seconds until the clock flashes, You should then be able to use the am/fm buttons and seek up and down buttons to set the hours and minutes. Once you have the time set, press the menu button again.

Can not set clock on Kenwood KDC228 CD Receiver

I spent the better part of an hour trying to figure out how to get the "Clk Adj" screen on the KDC-MP228. Here is the solution (dont waste your time reading the manual, it does not explain this). First, I had screwed up my settings so I did a factory reset (hold in the reset button). Then, you need to turn off Demo Mode (in standby click the Menu button and then use the control button to navigate to "Demo On". Hold the control button in to turn Demo on or off (this is different from all of the other controls in the manual). Now that Demo is off, click Menu button again and use the Control button to navigate through the options, one of which is "Clk Adj". At that point, you can follow the instructions in the manual (Hold in Control button until the clock blinks (approx 2 seconds), then use the FM/AM buttons to change the Hours and the << >> buttons to change the Minutes). Press the Control button again to save your changes. I cannot believe how difficult it was to set the clock on this device, someone should smack the developer who wrote that code.

Yesterday I installed the Pioneer DEH-2050MPG in an old Beetle I just bought, and had the same problem. The instructions were completely useless; Ignore them.

Here's how to set the time...

1. Hold the source button down until clock starts flashing.
2. Use arrow buttons to set time.
3. Press source again to save.

That's what worked for me.
