Kenwood kvt 911 dvd head unit

Hello i just brought a kenwood kvt 911 from auction. Sellers said it was working when taken out. I haven't install the unit in my car yet because its to dark outside. But i have try to see if the unit powers on and functions. I put red & yellow to positive and black to negative. the unit powers up but monitors doesn't slides out and unit turns off in about 3 seconds after i tap the positive and negative. When i press the open buttons it powers up then shuts down again. Do you know whats going on? and whenever i do tap it to power it up , it makes a sound like a cd is ejecting from the unit.

    @kellybyrd43: the KVT911-DVD screen slides out but will not flip up on its own. You will need to push the screen up yourself. This is how this model works.

I have a question. Everything is working perfectly except for there is no picture on the TV nor DVD. It was working fine until the other day when I messed around with some wires seeing if any of them were loose. Any suggestions?

The problem is the green wire on the back of the head unit. it is supposed to go to the emergency break as a safety feature however if you just ground it with the black wire you will be able to open it at any time.

I had a KVT910DVD / BRAIN/ KNA-DV2100 in my car but the head unit was shutting on n off n i had to reset it every other week. so I got a KVT911DVD from a guy in streetcarforum.com. he claimed that he had seen the unit work with his eyes. now i replaced the head unit with almost new KVT911DVD. i hooked up all the wires exactly the same way as with my previous head unit. but now the monitor would not slide out. i found that the hideaway brain is compatible with both units.

i called Kenwood USA n they want the unit to be sent in. is there any other trick to it that i am missing.

You have to have it hooked up to your car can't just hook it up to the battery. If you only have it hooked up to the battery the unit will turn on open allow you to put the code in then shut off. I have it had the problem fixed it and it works great

How do i wire up m Kenwood KVT-696 so that i can play DVD's, it shows a blue screen saying 'parking off' do i connect my AV in or AV out cords coming from the head unit?


For safety, the KVT-696, like other 'head units,' is design so that, properly installed, it will only work while the vehicle is in Park, with the parking brake ON. Makes sense if you think about it. Hey?

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!
