Question about Kenwood KDC-MP235 CD Player

1 Answer

Ok I had the kenwood KDC-MP235 installed and...

I was under the impressions that i could hook up my MP# player to the front aux and the display would show the song info on the front of the display, did the salesman tell me incorrectly? Also, it does not display the song info when I insert a CD.

    is the adaptor only compatible with Ipods? I have a Phillips MP3 player and would hate to purchase something if it does not work

The front aux input is only capable of accepting audio signals and definitely won't display any track tags.

If you have an iPod, I think with the KCA-iP500 adapter it will display song info on the front as well as allow control from the Kenwood's controls.

As far as the song info on a CD - it should display if you've got a CD with CDTEXT info on it, or if you're playing an MP3/WMA CD. Most regular audio CDs won't be able to display song info.

    Yes, the adapter mentioned is only compatible with iPods. Your MP3 player would most likely work with a unit that supported direct USB connection, however.

The battery on my car ent dead and now my AIWA CDC-MP32 keeps displaying "please unplug auxillary plugs"


Hi,

An auxiliary input allows you to select an external source and play it through the cd player's amplifier. It's often used for iPods and MP-3 players. Typically you just need an inexpensive patch cable that connects the headphone output from your portable player to the input on the CD player. After that you can select "AUX" as another source like CD or Tuner, and whatever's playing on the portable unit will be heard through the speakers.
Auxiliary inputs can be on the front or the rear of the CD player. Front aux inputs are typically 3.5mm stereo plugs, similar to a small headphone jack. Rear aux inputs can be RCA jacks or a 3.5mm jack. If you have a CD player with a rear aux input, a cable needs to be connected at the time of installation. Then the other end can be routed to whatever location in the vehicle you want to keep your portable player while you're using it with the CD player.
Front aux jacks are more convenient for quick connecting/disconnecting the portable player, but they tend to wear out over time.

Let us know if you have somethin more to ask else accept the suggestion.
Thank You for contacting Fixya

My car battery died and all of as sudden I can't get into aux mode. I start in standy, press menu, and the only option is Beep On. Scrolling doesn't work.


Try to open the panel (front) while the power is turned on..look for the tiny hole marked (sometimes) with reset and try to push with a pen to click. Reattached the front panel control and try to check if all the function has gone back.good luck!

hey dear, just do this if you wanna set AUX function: turn off your head unit.. when is in standby mode, press the volume knob and hold it pressed until it appears some words... then start moving on to differente options by clicking left-right of the right knob... you will find aux on-off

not sure if standby mode, or completely turned off (to turn it off just click the SRC mode a few seconds)
