Question about Kenwood KVT-719DVD 7 in. Car Monitor

Player says "CALL" upon startup

Everytime I power up the receiver, it plays the radio or dvd sound for a couple of seconds, and then it ends up saying "CALL" in the upper left hand corner and the sound shuts off. The only way to fix it is by pushing the power button real quick, and then it works. It does this every time I power the system, and occasionally just randomly while I am driving. I did the install myself, and this is the only problem that has occurred. Any idea what's going on?

It sounds like the telephone mute wire at the back of the set has got trapped and is shorting to ground and it then mutes the radio, remove the set and look for a trapped tel mute wire and wrap insulation tape around it to prevent it happening again

Every time i play the cd player it jumps back to the radio

Did you check if the DVD disk you are trying to play is actually playable? Mabe the player can't read the disk so reboots to radio. Also, you should try with another DVD disk

If disk is ok, recheck your original setup options, but I'm quite sure that it's some electronic failure of your device. Simply should not make sense some hidden option to play radio wnen you select the DVD player.

So your final optin probably should de take your device to repair service. Look at your original warranty for nearest authorized repair service, even if warranty has expired.

My cd player resets everytime i turn my car off and i have to reset the settings. I have the antenna wire connected. What else could be the problem?

First off, where do you have the antenna wire connected to? It sounds like you have the yellow wire connected to a 12v source that turns off when you turn the key off. The yellow wire needs to go to a source that still has 12v when you turn the ignition key off. The yellow wire controls the memory of the deck.

I have a question about my monitor. How do I know there is power going to my monitor? When I play a movie everything works...sound, dvd player, etc, but there is no power to the monitor. the monitor does...

If this is an over head, all in one dvd player, well,if the player works and the sound, and the dome has power. The issue may reside with the monitor being disconnected (ribbon cable) or the monitor is done.

No sound for Icon TV (DVD Player)

Try to look for a switch under the dash it should be a toggle switch , what happens is that the switch turns on the Fm modulater that transmitts the sound of the Dvd to the station. If that is not turn then you will hear the dvd player. If you turn the switch on then you will hear the radio become more static, that means that the Fm modulator is working
