Kenwood Tuner Frequency Steps Problem

Hi,
I have a problem with my Kenwood KDC-MP5033 unit. I made a reset to it and since than my tuner frequencies (in manual tuning mode and in auto tuning as well) steps are too big. For instance, I can go to 87.9 FM or to 88.1 FM, but I can't set it to 88.0 FM. Actually, I cannot set any even frequencies (96.6, 91.8 etc). I can only set odd frequencies (96.5 or 91.7) and the steps are by 0.2. If I recall it right, I didn't have this weird problem before... Is it a known bug? Is there any way to fix it?

Thanks in advance,
Misha Pletinsky

    Ok, I found the solution. Apperently the unit is set to the American radio system. To transform it to the European system, you should turn it off, press 1+5+SRC until it will turn on again. And that does the job.

    Hello there! I have Kenwood eXcelon KDC-X592 and I'm having the same
    problem - only the remote control has numbered buttons on it.
    There are no numbered buttons on the front panel of the receiver. Is
    there a key combination for such receivers?

    Thanks!

    Ivaylo, Bulgaria

    I have a car stereo purchased from the US and I can’t pick up all radio stations in Europe/UK, what can I do?


    If you have purchased a car stereo from the US you will find that it
    will not pick up many European radio stations. This is due to the fact
    that US radio frequency steps are different to here in Europe.


    You may be able to set the tuner to European stations by following this procedure.


    Press and hold down the SRC button to power down the unit completely.

    While the unit is off press button 1 & 5 together, while momentarily pressing the SRC button.


    If this does not work try the following proceedure;


    Press and hold buttons 1 and 5 together, while momentarily pressing the reset button.


    If this does not work then the unit is not designed to pick up European frequency steps.

I took the battery out of and now my Kenwood Stereo asks for a code.


Reset the radio by pushing the small button on left side of the #1 preset. it is probably pulling the code for the anti theft protection. if you already have a lock code use it to unlock the tuner otherwise reset the tuner

Tuner error


Use a multimeter to check for connectivity to the sirius. Where did you mount the antenna? Maybe its a reception problem? Sounds like the head unit is going bad. Try shutting it down, and take the pace plate off, let it reboot and see if it works. Check to see if the Tuner is unplugged.

Very weird Radio Tuning Problem


This is a USA model and by default in the USA all FM stations end in an Odd number. This is completely normal. you can try holding preset 1 and 5 down while pressing the reset button on the unit and it may allow you to switch to a Europe style of tuning.
