Kenwood DNX7100 screen won't tilt back up after putting in CD

Anyone know how to fix this?? Brand new unit, I put a disc in, and the screen will not come back up!! Only way to get it to come back up is to turn off the ignition and after about 20 seconds it will come back up.

    Ya i noticed that today after my install that it wouldn't go back up. I have done it quite a few times and that has only happened the once. What I did was just power the unit down by holding down the NAV button, that closed it.

My kenwood 7100 DNX will not play DVD's or CD's. It sucks because I have had the unit for 2yrs and now it does this. Can it be fixed? Will they have to replace the DVD mechanism, and how much will that cost since its not under warranty?

My DNX7100 is having tilt problems but it is worse than anything I've read online. It acts as though it is completely confused about tilting. When I start the car, it tilts to a random spot. When I stop the car, it tilts to a random spot. When I go to the tilt menu, to play around with the settings it does what it wants to do. If I press 2, it might change the setting to 5 itself but actually tilt into the -1 position.........if that makes any sense. Kenwood wants me to send it in for repair and I'm not surprised. Those so-called tech guys are clueless most of the time.

I had the exact same problem. I had to turn off my car completely and thirty seconds later the screen would close. Sent it to Kenwood twice and on the second time they said thay had to replace the whole dvd mechanism. I had my 1000.00 dollar stereo tied up for nearly a month if you count the first 9 days that a local kenwood repair center had it. Love the unit, but hated that problem. Oh, it was done under warranty.

I'm relief that I'm not the only one with this problem. It is weird. I put in a DVD with avi's on it, and it would not play. I tried ejecting the disc... the screen tilted down, but the disc would not come out and hitting the eject button again would not tilt the screen back. Instead of turning off the ignition, I just reset the unit. What a pain.

Won't read an SD card


It sounds like either your GPS plug came out of the back of the unit, or your gps does not have a clear view of the sky, or if the gps is mounted on a trunk that opens and closes a lot the wire can break inside. I dont think the software is your issue, just to make sure if you update make sure the update file is the only file on the card, if there are other files (left over pictures, etc) they can cause the unit to disreguard the whole card.

DNX7100 Security Code Password


While code request mode,point the remote control to the unit and enter this code 55222277or 552222777(depending the remote contro you are using)(try to press the numbers that faster you can) that is way you type KCAR from the remote control.
you will not see any change on the screen while you entering the number,only when you enter the last number the unit will go to standby mode.
if you make a mistake,reset the unit and start all over again.

Make sure the face of the radio is completely unobstructed. If anything blocks it, the disc will not eject. Another tip is to take a CD while the door is oped and insert it into the unit part way to "trick" the unit into thinking a disc is being loaded. Then unit may be confused and thinks that no disc is inside the radio. Also, disconnecting constant power for at least 15 seconds will often reset the unit.

Disconnect the negative cable from your battery for a few minutes, we had the same thing happen when we first bought ours. We found the fix on Crutchfield's website.
