Question about Kenwood KVT-617DVD Car DVD Player

1 Answer

Kenwood KVT 617dvd fried

My in dash unti started smoking one day/ Upon taking it apart I found that the wires in the rear were all melted up. So, I ordered a new wire harness, worked good until a certain volume, so I assumed ground was bad. I took the entire unit apart to find that the ground pin into the mother board was pretty much destroyed. So, I need a new 8 pin plug to solder onto the board in place of the fried one. anyone have any idea what that part number is or where to find it?

Kenwood KVT-617DVD - Rear Camera Option Not Working


Hi,

Since "...everything else is working..." indicates that there is no blown fuse or chances are nor any hardware is at fault.

When the battery was disconnected, the Kenwood KVT-617DVD may have suffered a memory failure and would require a reset.

Have you tried doing a reset? It's a small recessed button near the bottom right side of the font panel underneath the protection panel (right of the Joystick Track/Station Key & above the Eject Disc Key). Pressing the reset button should restore the Kenwood KVT-617DVD to default factory settings. Of course this will also remove any special programming that you may have such as favorite stations, etc.

You also posted "...Parking brake requirement...bypassed..." this is only to allow the display to be always ON. This is the green wire that must be grounded
You need also to check that the "Reverse" wire/trigger is also bypassed that is to set the "...camera...full time...rear view mirror and back-up monitor for the truck camper..." This is the pink wire that must be attached to the ACC of the vehicle's Ignition Switch. Alternately, it may be connected to the red wire of the Kenwood KVT-617DVD.

If the reset does not correct the problem, you may need to run the setup menu again following the user's manual. Should you need a copy, it is available on line here. Pls verify that you set R-Cam Interruption to ON & R-Cam Mirror to Reverse. This is better explained with appropriate illustrations in page 69 of the User's Manual.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Hideaway brain unit on my kenwood KVT-617 doesn't work


My KVT-617 display unit was stolen out of my dash, but they neglected to snag the items under the rear seat: the "brain" hideaway unit, the HD radio receiver, the 10 disc CD changer, the navigation unit, and the powered subwoofer.
Everything was replaced via the insurance except the sub because the new system was not compatible with the old components. Make me an offer on the items you want!

Need a new brain for KVT617-DVD


The answer is simple "no" as the KVT-617DVD player and most other units are only made per batch now so they is no parts like the one you require as it was one main unit per unit and no overstocks but the simple parts were generic but the part you need was only ever to be used with the unit you have now.

It will be more cost effective to buy a replacment ..start over ..
