SOURCE: RE: Kenwood KDC BT945U My deck

Hi Dennis,

One of persons I know had the same problem, now all you need to do is reset the player and hopefully it would be fine , please follow the below instructions :-

You would find one reset button on the front panel, to be precise It's located between the forward button and the "1" button.

All you need to do is insert a pen and press that button and make sure that the unit is turned on at that time,

Then you will find that the unit will do blank or dark for some seconds and then back on

Also remember to always press the eject button before if you remove your USB
drive as it would flash remove signal , this is a safety norm that you need to follow.

Hope this helps ...:)

It no longer reads all cds sacds it use to, thought cds were bad,bought second cds and still will not play help love the sounds


When you say it doesn't read SACD's do you mean it doesn't put out 5.1? Keep in mind that you have select the SACD multichannel area and use the 5.1 analog outputs for that and NO digital output will be produced.

My front loader reads disc error or unplayable no matter what disc I insert. It worked just fine for about 2 years. It doesn ot get heavy cd use, but everyday radio/alarm use.


To resolve this issue, try one or all of the following:
  • The Wave® music system is designed to play commercial CDs, CD-Rs, MP3-encoded CDS and CD-RWs. If your system has trouble playing MP3 CDs, make sure the discs were recorded with compatible formats. See Cannot play MP3 CDs


  • The system may not be able to play certain CD-RW discs. Playability is dependant on how the disc was recorded, including the format it was recorded in and the actual disc used for recording.
    Note: iTunes defaults to AAC as the encoding format. In order to use iTunes to make CDs that will play on the Wave® music system, you’ll need to change the format to MP3 How to Choose Import Options


  • Different brands of CD-Rs and CD-RWs use different materials which may affect the ability of a player to read them. If you are burning your own CD-Rs or CD-RWs, experiment with different brands of discs


  • If a commercial disc won’t play, check for scratches, fingerprints or other physical damage. Try the CD in another player. If it still won’t play, there may be a problem with the disc


  • Reset the system by disconnecting the power cord from the wall for one minute, then plug the system back in

Dvd drive will read/play dvds but will not recognize a cd


go to safemode and try reading CDs in safemode. If your burner still can't read CDs then it's most likely bad. You could get an external usb burner.

Plays cds but not dvds


If the lens is clean (clean with cotton swab and alcohol), then the optics are failing. DVDs require more power and accuracy to be read than CDs. The ability to read CDs but not DVDs is usually a good indication that the optics are starting to fail.

DVD drive does not play or recognize DVDs but does play CDs


Find out what model drive you have and see if there is a firmware update for the drive.. Sometimes they loose there brain and need to be reprogrammed. If that dosent fix your problem, then the laser is on its way out.. Use a different laser to read dvds vs CDs.
