When you hooked it up you didn't hook up the right wires because there is 12volt constant wire that keeps the unit to save things so when you turn it off it's not getting any power at all so it just resets

I spent the better part of an hour trying to figure out how to get the "Clk Adj" screen on the KDC-MP228. Here is the solution (dont waste your time reading the manual, it does not explain this). First, I had screwed up my settings so I did a factory reset (hold in the reset button). Then, you need to turn off Demo Mode (in standby click the Menu button and then use the control button to navigate to "Demo On". Hold the control button in to turn Demo on or off (this is different from all of the other controls in the manual). Now that Demo is off, click Menu button again and use the Control button to navigate through the options, one of which is "Clk Adj". At that point, you can follow the instructions in the manual (Hold in Control button until the clock blinks (approx 2 seconds), then use the FM/AM buttons to change the Hours and the << >> buttons to change the Minutes). Press the Control button again to save your changes. I cannot believe how difficult it was to set the clock on this device, someone should smack the developer who wrote that code.
If I remeber correctly, I did a bunch of these at the shop and you need to be in standby mode. Hold the menu button. a new menu will come up and you should be able to set the clock there also if you like the annoying beeps that it does you can also turn that off. And while you are at it turn off the DEMO mode unless you like it. I hope I could help.
I had the same problem and I called 1-800-KENWOOD. There is a button to the left of your preset station buttons and it is the menu button. It is also the B.Boost button. When in standby mode, press this Menu button and hold it for a second or so and the menu will appear. The manual conveinently left this part out. Once you hold that button you can then move the control knob up or down till it comes to DEMO and then hold the control knob down for 2 seconds to change it from DEMO mode, like the manual tells you to. They always leave out the most important part. This MENU button will be your friend from now on, and it also goes to the option that will set the clock. The people at 1-800-KENWOOD were very helpful should you need more assistance. Good luck!
