Question about Kenwood KVT-817DVD DVD/CD/MP3/WMA 7" Motorized In-dash Monitor With 5.1ch DSP Car Video Player

1 Answer

CD/DVD only works in Dual Zone?!

I have had my KVT 817DVD in for about 3 months now and I love every second of it. Hooked it up to some great speakers and they sound great on Sirius. The only problem is that I can only listen to CDs through Dual Zone, and in Dual Zone, I find that the equalizers cannot be changed. HELP!

Kenwood KVT-817DVD screen goes black, have to reset constantly


Hello johnnychi925,

The unit appears to have been installed on the 12vdc connection that is on the same circuit as the the vehicle's ignition switch. This means that when the ignition is turned there is a rapid drop in voltage which cause the problem with your device. You need to connect the device to a 12vdc circuit that comes straight from the battery and does not connect to the ignition circuit. Now for another possible cause if the 12vdc you are connected to is from the battery and not the ignition connection. The battery could be dropping below 12vdc during the starting of your vehicle. This could be the sign of a malfunctioning battery, or a problem with the car's electrical system.

To test out if the battery ids dropping below 12vdc I would suggest connecting a voltmeter to the - and + of the battery and starting the car. The voltage should drop but not below 12vdc.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

Shuttle83

Kenwood in-dash dvd player kvt817dvd cuts out


Hi there,

inside the unit there will be a small battery, this will need replacing as its not holding its charge, the battery is just like a watch battery, as soon as this is sorted it will work fine.

The battery is for holding system information like for instance the time and date, and all over things that you might have programed with it.

Hope this helps.

Please rate me

Thanks

Kenwood kvt817dvd powers up after reset but cuts out after src


I removed my brain from beneath my seat and exposed all wires and connections. I have found that on mine (kvt-815) there were two pinched wires- 1 for a speaker and the other the remote wire. I respliced these sections and tested my radio again. It appears to be working now and stays on again. I'm guessing one of the wires must have been touching something metal under the seat (seat frame) and grounding out. If the unit doesn't power on at all, check the fuse first. Otherwise, I would  inspect every wire like I did and maybe you'll find a pinched (grounded) wire. Maybe I just got lucky... but at least it's working again and I don't have to replace the brain! Hope this helps.
