Re: kenwood kvt 617 dvd
Buy the same unit new in box then ask for code to see what they say. Then return the new unit keep the code. Because this time the new unit would have a serial number and receipt, they would just give you the code over the set and won't make you send it in and it still under warranty so the would be no extra charge. Just an idea though. Goodluck. Let me know if it work.

a new eprom chip has to be installed,and proof that you did not steal the set.
best way for your tv not to get stolen is to leave a post it note that it is locked.
it is like passwording a computer,the hard drive needs to be formatted.
The password code is something you set yourself by going into the settings. If there is a security code already set up it is because: A) you bought it used and the previous owner set it up...just ask them, or B) It came new from the factory with this settings error...call kenwood, or the place where you purchased.
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!
Your radio will require one of the following procedures.
Type 1 During the code request mode, while holding the DISP key depressed, press and hold the Volume UP or DOWN key for 3 seconds (so that “…” disappears). Then using your remote enter your code.
Type 2 Press the "Auto" button and "Track up" on face of radio at the same time. The four dash lines ( . . . . ) should "disappear".
Then using your remote enter your code.
Type 3 Model# DPX-4020 and DPX-4030 Press and hold the 1 then the 6 preset key (preset keys are the buttons on face of radio for storing you "favorite" radio stations). "C" should display. Then using your remote, enter your code.
Enter your number from the remote control unit. Your code number is 5227 (KCAR)
* Press numeric key “5” ( 2 times ) and press the Track UP/Next Track key * Press numeric key “2” ( 3 times ) and press the Track UP/Next Track key * Press numeric key “2” ( 1 time ) and press the Track UP/Next Track key * Press numeric key “7” ( 2 times ) and press the Track UP/Next Track key
The security is canceled and the set enters the TUNER mode!
1)TURN ON YOUR UNIT 2)DISPLAY WILL REQUEST TO ENTER THE SECURITY CODE 3)USING THE REMOTE CONTROL POIN IT TO THE UNIT AND PRESS 55222277 THAT WILL CLEAR THE CODE.
NOTE:"YOU WILL NOT SEE ANY NUMBER ON THE DISPLY WHILE YOU PRESSIN THE NUMBER ON THE REMOTE CONTROL
