Question about Kenwood KDC-X890 CD Player

Kenwood KDC-X890 won't turn on

I've had my Kenwood for about a year. Today I plugged my Zune in to the AUX IN port. When I pressed the SRC button to navigate to AUX, it did not appear to be available. So I reset the unit per the instruction manual by pressing the small recessed button with a paper clip, and it wont turn on now. I made sure the recessed button is not stuck. I even went as far as to disconnect the car battery, hoping it would reset itself, but to no avail. Any help from a car stereo guru would be appreciated.

Thanks

    Exactly the same issue. Aux was working just fine and now won't appear in the menu. iPod no longer works with steroe because of it. The car battery died today and wondering if it's related?

Maybe a fuse blew out or maybe a wire came loose. check the fuses first then check the wiring make sure everything is cool. then smell the cd player if it has a funky burnt smell kind of like burnt olives or almonds it blew the diode and its toast.

We ave this player in ou RV and supose to be able to use the speakers in the RV by going to AUX. I have search through the book several times and I can not figure out how to get to AUX


Hi, the AUX mode is accessed by pressing the SRC button, but the name that appears for "AUX" can be changed. It may be that you are seeing one of the alternate names. Reviewing page 9 of the manual I got here: http://manual.kenwood.com/files/B64-1876-00.pdf
I saw there are are 4 other names other than "AUX", which are "TV", "VCP", "GAME", and "PORTABLE". If you see any of these names when pressing "SRC," stop there and hold the "DISP" button down for at least 2 seconds. The display should then blink "AUX-name". You can then switch the name of the AUX mode using the >> button. Please let me know if you have more questions. and thanks for using FixYa.

Press the SRC button to turn unit on. The SRC button allows you to navigate between input sources,i.e. tuner, cd, aux, etc. Press and hold SRC button for second to turn unit off ( it will display standby).

How can i connect my ipod to a kenwood excelon XXV-01D i see the aux plug in the back and when i pluged my ipod in i cant find the mode that allows me to play it.


There is a button that should say SRC or Source. Pressing it scrolls through the modes. Press once to move to FM, another time to move to Satellite, etc.

Stop when you get to AUX.

I can't figure out how to get the player into mp3 mode. There is the button that changes between CD and tuner, but that doesn't do it.


Here's what they don't tell you: AUX isn't automatically an option when you scroll through the SRC button. You have to turn it on. I know, I know...stupid. I had to contact Kenwood (the maker of the unit) directly to get an answer.
  • First, press the SRC button repeatedly until it displays STANDBY.
  • Then hold down the Menu button until MENU is displayed.
  • Next press up or down on the right control knob, to scroll up or down, until AUX OFF is displayed.
  • Next hold the right control knob to the left or right until Aux switches on.
  • Now just press the Menu button to exit.
  • AUX will now be an option when you scroll through the SRC button

Mp3 to aux input


Try putting the unit in standby via the "SRC" button FIRST..., then press the menu button and cycle through to the "AUX 1" option and activate this....then press menu button again.
