I recently received a really nice R600 Kenwood.

It does not have the 13.8 volt jack installed. Anybody know if one is available or of a simple mod to allow 13.8 volt operation. Thanks

Hi Doug,

To my knowledge, the Kenwood R600 straight from the box runs only on AC power hence no DC jacks.

However, there is a DCK-1 accessory which is a DC cord kit for this receiver.

Alternately, the secondary output of the transformer is 14VAC which is feed to the bridge diode of the power supply on the PLL unit/board. With that in mind, it would then be OK to hardwire 13.8VDC right after the bridge diode and parallel to the big filter capacitor. It may be a good idea to put an inline reverse protection diode and a fuse. Of course any DC type of jack/plug combination/arrangement may also be used.

Additionally, you might be interested in a service manual for the Kenwood R600 which is available here.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Kenwood how to connect


You need a stereo mini to RCA cable to connect the laptop's headphone audio jack to the Kenwood. Here is an example of one below. They are very common and available at just about any electronics store for a few bucks.

http://www.amazon.com/Gemini-PH62089-Stereo-Mini-Male-RCA-Male/dp/B0001GAOE0

The Kenwood receiver should have a number of red and white "RCA" audio connectors on the back.

Just connect the RCA portion of the cable to a spare input. They should be clearly marked on the back of the unit and color coded (red for right channel and white for left channel). But it really doesn't matter if you mix the right and left up, it will still make sound.

EX:
Most receivers will have inputs that are labeled "CD" or "Aux" that you can connect any audio source to.

If you connect your laptop or an MP3 player to the audio input connections labeled "CD" behind the Kenwood receiver, you can listen to the device by selecting the CD as the source.

It is really easy!

Does the Kenwood KDC MP5032 have an aux input? If so, where is it?


Hi there,

Kenwood utilize the CD Changer plug in the back (which acts as a secondary Aux input), to operate external iPod devices.

This is done with the aid of an Adapter Lead - it has the 13-pin DIN plug on one end (plugs into the rear of your unit), and an iPod plug on the other end (plugs into your iPod).

Depending on the "Generation" of your external iPod device, you will need to buy the appropriate Kenwood adapter cable. These are: KCA-IP102, KCA-IP202 or KCA-IP302.

There may be some aftermarket (3rd party) cables that may do the same job.

Just ensure you read your Kenwood manual, as the Kenwood unit may be limited to the types of files (i.e. formats) it can read & play.

Hope this explains....

Cheers,

Need Unlock Code for Kenwood MP235 car stereo


Look for a really small hole in the face plate. Put a tip of a pen into it. Press it in and then it should turn on. If this doesn't work, take it to a place that installs them, they'll help....Usually for free....

My kenwood amp keeps cutting off on dvd mode but is fine on stereo mode???


Without knowing the model number of the kenwood reciever and what DVD input (analog or digital) you are using, I can only give you my best guess at what is causing this.

If you are using analog input (RCA cable), try connecting another analog source into the DVD input and see if that cuts out. if so, the problem is in the reciever and may just be a broken solder connection on the RCA input jack, if not the problem is in the DVD player.

If you are using the digital input you may have a problem on the DSP board. This is a very hard problem to troubleshoot to a componet level and many times the entire DSP board must be replaced (if it is available, which is rarely with Kenwood).

DSP board repairs are all very difficult repairs for any service center.

The only way to really know what the problem is, if you have eliminated the DVD player as the problem is to take it to a service center to get checked out.

I will be happy to help you more if you can get me the model number of the receiver and also try to check the DVD player for this problem.

What add on do i needed


The kvt-617dvd doesn't list your changer as one that's compatible. However the changer install procedure is relatively simple - just plug the 13-pin cable from the changer directly into the kvt-617's hideaway receiver. I would suggest you connect it to see if the changer will work before buying anything else.

more info would be nice. If you're using optical, make sure its securely in both the tv and your vr-405 receiver. I have owned the vr-405 since 2000 and i just purchased a sony 32xbr6. HDMI into the TV, optical out to the receiver, it sounds amazing!
