Question about Kenwood KDC-HD942U
OK ..this will be tricky and will not be the answer you hoped for ..
Once hat you cut the current into the unit ..it is necessary to insert the pin code again ..to let you get started..if you forget the code and there is no way to get it back ..from somewhere ..like the previous owner if it is the case..than the only thing that you can do is to take it to a repair shop of these kinda devices...and change the internal chip ..(flash tip memory ) that holds the information about the code...This operation will lead you to end up with a new empty memory ..so with a chance to enter a new code..and this is the only way to by pass this code..
Due to the large numbers of second hand cars ..and the people that buy them and get to this kinda problem ...the guys from the repair shop are familiar with this problem ..and even if they do not know how to change that chip they know for sure where to guide you to ....
The chip itself is just a small flash memory circuit..and it is not expensive ...but the hand work will cost a little..and I repeat ..if you can not recover that code..it is the only way to do it ..
This kinda chip is not sensitive to lack of power for to try to reset it ..or any other trick ..the replacing is the only solution ..
