Question about Kenwood KRC-S205 Cassette Player

1 Answer

Kenwood KRC S205 Car Radio Cassette player

I own the above mentioned car radio and the tunning jumps by odd numbers of 0.2 increments; as an example from 100.5 Fm to 100.7 (up) or to 100.3 (down) and so on.
Hence it's impossible to listen to many radio stations in my country.
I was told that this is the American pattern and the radio should be configured to the European system but I don't know what key combination does the trick.
The radio is assembled in my year 2000 Mazda (626).
Awaits your assistance.
Regards
Arik

Depending upon the intended market, your Mazda may have been equipped with a radio for the other standard. Some radios have a switch for selection of the local channel spacing.

SOURCE: my kenwood 45wx4 is only tuning to the odd number radio station

In generic terms, you need to change the zone or area to Europe (probably from US).
Typically this is done via the menu function and looking for something like ZONE or AREA and then changing the setting to indicate EUROPE.

I have to reset the radio in my Nissan xtrail. I have the code and have put that in . The last number keeps flashing and the radio still doesn't work


Not sure if you've reset it before but here are the directions. Pay attention to last paragraph.
If you have done this sorry for not having another answer.
The trick is to know that only the channel preset button labeled 1,2,3,4 are used to enter the PIN - each channel button is used to increment the value of one digit on the display. Channel preset '1' increments the first digit, '2' the second, and so on. Each press of a channel button increments the corresponding digit by one, cycling back to 0 and around again.

So to enter 1924 as a PIN, you'd start with the display reading '0000' and press
- preset 1 once (increment 0 -> 1)
- preset 2 nine times (increment 0 -> 9)
- preset 3 twice (increment 0 -> 2)
- preset 4 four times (increment 0 -> 4)

The last one's easy, as the radio unlocks as soon as you hit the right code so you just keep pressing preset button 4 'til it unlocks! (i.e. it's a 4 digit PIN but only as secure as a 3 digit one.

DEH-P7900 BT US model. Isthere any way I could change the tuner frequency to european one. Thanks.


The DEH-P7900BT is almost identical to the DEH-P85BT sold in Europe.

This is a US model and will tune most AM/FM stations in the UK/Europe. The FM broadcast band is 87.8 to 108.0 MHz. so it will not pick up any FM stations outside this range. Also, the tuning is in odd increments (such as 96.1, 96.3, 96.5, etc.) so some stations with even frequencies will be slightly distorted, depending on the power of the signal the station generates.


I found this bit of info for you but ill keep looking and let you know what i find out.
Also have you tried it in europe to see if it does work or not let me know ok

How do i set radio stations


Albeit you may be able to show even numbers on the dial, a standard stereo will only allow odd number stations to be programmed as those are the only ones available on the standard FM frequency.

I have a kenwood KRC-509S cassette and i forget the code ...??? so is there any way or any tips to open my 509S again... if u know the solution please send it to my email.


The code will only be available from your Main Dealer or by using a Radio Decoding Service who will read the working code inside your radio`s memory chip (EEPROM) using a laptop and special software

How do i connect a kenwood krc 394 radio cassette,+ve battery, eth, and speaker connections.


Head unit color code:

12V-Yellow
12V switched-Red
Ground-Black
Illumination or Dimmer-Orange/Orange w/white stripe
Blue-Power Antenna
Blue wwhite stripe-Amp turn on

Whites-FL speaker
Greys-FR speaker
Greens-RL speaker
Purples-RR speaker
(Black stripes negative)

If you have a female harness to connect to the veicle side you will pretty much color match. The only exception is that you may only have an amp turn on wire but only a power antenna on the vehicle. In this case you would connect blue w/white stripe wire from radio harness to the blue antenna wire on the vehicle side.

If you are doing a hardwire (factory plug has been cut off) you can obtain a wiring code for your vehicle at www.the12volt.com for most vehicles.

2007 Camry: I can't receive clear radio channel in camry 2007 ...


if you have a factory radio, then chance are you antenna is amplified (even if you don't have an antenna that goes up in the back). The fuse for the antenna amplifier could have blown or the amplifier itself my have gone bad. It could also be your radio but, i would check those things first... Just a side note: i don't know of any stations that around me that aren't odd numbers 92.3 fm,95.5 fm,100.3 fm. Where you able to tune it to 100 fm before?
