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

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 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.

Kvt 512 dvd


In order to get dual zone to work you must put the player in standby mode. This is the option on the second page of input options. You will then be able to go to the settings and set dual zone as well as turn on your subwoofer should you have one.
