Re: Kenwood Exelon 891

The demo mode is a feature that is a default setting in the menu so when a retailer is putting it on display it will attempt to sell itself... it is also a feature that can be turned off in the menu,, some brands have to be in standby mode or off with the ignition key on in order to adjust certain features. On kenwood radios some buttons have multiple functions.. if you push and release the button it does one thing but if you push and hold the button it will do something else. the best thing to do is play around with it or better yet read the instruction manual... these are not apple pruducts.. they take some thought and guidance to use.. if this doesn't help. go to a local kenwood authorized dealer that installs the product and ask then to turn off the demo.. might as well have them set the clock too.

Kenwood DPX-U5130BT Demo mode

When you hooked it up you didn't hook up the right wires because there is 12volt constant wire that keeps the unit to save things so when you turn it off it's not getting any power at all so it just resets

How to turn demo off kdc-mp3035

1. Be sure the unit is in the stand-by mode (ie: turned off)
2. Push the control knob towards FM or AM. Select the DEMO display
3. To set the DEMO mode, do this:
Press the control knob for at least 2 seconds. The demonstration mode alternates between DEMO ON and DEMO OFF.

Although it doesn't say, i would imagine you need to press the MENU button to exit this screen.

This information came from the instruction manual that I was able to download from the internet. Shoot me an e-mail and I'll forward it off to you.

Turn the unit onto standby then press and hold the menu button then scroll down to demo using the toggle switch on the right then press and hold the toggle switch for a few seconds and it will change to demo off. It's not too difficult but you are correct, it doesn't tell you correctly in the installation instructions.
