Question about Kenwood Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

I have a Kenwood KDC-W311A car radio/cd, and am having problems setting the preset stations. It insists on doing an auto search and whizzing thro' the frequencies @90 mph. I know there is a way to do a much slower manual search, but for the life of me, I can't find in the menus how to achieve this. Thanks in advance & hoping that you can assist me in my hour of need.

Apparently there are 2 modes in which to use the MENU function, Standby & Tuner mode. The manual doesn't make this very clear. However, Manual Tuning can be aceived by putting the radio into TUNER mode, then pressing the MENU button for a couple of seconds & scrolling thro' with the Control Button until you can set Manual Tuning to ON.

Hello george_nutti,

The model number you posted is for a center channel speaker which has no controls, and not knowing the exact model number it's difficult to be specific.

Some Kenwood KDC models allow you to select one of 3 "tuning modes", 1) AUTO1 - Automatic search for stations; 2) AUTO2 - Search Preset stations; 3) MANUAL - Normal manual tuning control. If your Kenwood is one of these models, you need to set the tuning mode to MANUAL. For Kenwood Excelon HD receivers, direct access tuning is done by using the included remote. 1) Press DIRECT button on the remote; 2) Press number buttons to enter desired channel number; 3) Press DIRECT button again to exit direct tuning.

Hope this helps.

Turner mode


To the right of the number 6 station preset is an auto/name button. In the display it likely shows something like auto 1 or 2. each press will cycle it through Auto 1 > Auto 2 > Manual. You want the manual setting. See if that works for you.
