Re: No plug for my kenwood car cd player got one now but...

To find the positive wire for your stereo you should really be using a multi meter. you can pick up one relatively cheap at any Hobby Electronics store. If you are still unsure then I really think you should get someone who has installed a car audio system before to help you.

How do i wire my kenwood DPX308U cd player to my 2003 ford f-150

Red wire to power that comes on when you start your car. Black wire to ground or metal. Blue wire is for remote turn on of power amplifiers . Yellow wire needs to go to a constant power connection because this is for memory, so all of your radio stations will be there when you turn the unit on. The other paired color wires are for speaker connections. Here is a link for a PDF manual that will show all of your connections. Hint disconnect your battery before making power connections so you don't fry your radio.

Kenwood how to connect

You need a stereo mini to RCA cable to connect the laptop's headphone audio jack to the Kenwood. Here is an example of one below. They are very common and available at just about any electronics store for a few bucks.

The Kenwood receiver should have a number of red and white "RCA" audio connectors on the back.

Just connect the RCA portion of the cable to a spare input. They should be clearly marked on the back of the unit and color coded (red for right channel and white for left channel). But it really doesn't matter if you mix the right and left up, it will still make sound.

Most receivers will have inputs that are labeled "CD" or "Aux" that you can connect any audio source to.

If you connect your laptop or an MP3 player to the audio input connections labeled "CD" behind the Kenwood receiver, you can listen to the device by selecting the CD as the source.

It is really easy!

Resetting a Kenwood vr 606

When you say 'plugging it in', do you mean power or signal?

You have a major clue: external components affect it. Try to figure out which one(s). Then abalyze what's different about it(them). Are different power sources (outlets) involved? Only certain cables? Sometimes different AC plug polarities can cause the relative grounds in the units to be diffrerent and when you join them with RCA cables they'll have hum or static problems.

Another thing: don't overload its convenience outlets with powering external gear. It only supports 150 watts.
