Question about Kenwood KVT-617DVD Car DVD Player
I have the head unit hooked up like it is supposed to including the green wire to the ground but dvds do not play. CDs also do not play, they "read" and by that I mean that the time ticks by on the counter displayed but there is no audio coming from it at all, only on tuner. Does anyone know why this would happen? Could I have gotten a bad head unit?
Ok, so I called Crutchfield, where I had purchased the unit, and the guy there said this is a common thing. Believe it or not, it IS the wiring. The guy said the blue wire on the harness needs to be connected to the blue/white wire on the Kenwood unit. Which is weird, since it's usually color-coded. He said the blue wire is a 12-volt amp wire, which works with the tuner, but when you take it off tuner, it kills the 12 volts and so you get no sound.
I haven't fixed it yet to be sure it works, but I thought I'd post this anyway, in case someone else is waiting on this. I'll post again if it doesn't work. :0)

NO, its not the wiring. I have the same unit and punched everything in my car and finally figured it out. All I heard was the tuner but no dvd or cd. But then I got it...
1. Go to your tuner
2. Top right hand corner press the ( TI ) button
3. Go back to DVD
