Question about Kenwood DNX6160 Car Video Player

1 Answer

I just installed the 6160 yesterday. When I plug in my iphone, all information comes up on the deck, and it will play the music, however there is no sound! I am very frustrated, did the person who installed the deck not do it properly? Also I can set my phone up with bluetooth, but the SMS option remains blocked off, why is this?

Go back to installer and demonstrate ,could be a incompatable issue with digital and analogue sound but without having a play myself its difficult to diagnose online.it might just be a plug not in properly on the back of the set ,as for the sms bluetooth operation it might just need a switch on the back of the set that needs switching on .Best advice is to return to fitter and ask politely and iam sure they will bend over backwards to get it all working prpoerly for you

I have a droid Samsung Galaxy 4S cell phone. My problem is in my attempt to play music from my cell through my boat radio I plug in with a cord through the top jack on the phone directly to the radio.


A Samsung phone running the Android operating system probably has a Google "Play Music" app installed. Open the list of apps and look for it. If not go to Google "Play Store" and install it. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.music

If your music files are on your phone or memory card, you can set up the app and it will create a database of all your songs (usually in a folder called "Music"). The app plays what you ask it to play - one song, or an entire album, or all songs in the "genre" Country, etc. The radio just plays whatever sound the phone is sending. The iphone is set up to play a series of songs (probably you selected an album) before pausing.

When I plug my headphones in why doesnt the sound come out of the headphones?


Where do you plug in the phones? if it is an iPhone. the music playing will be stopped, just to precent your ears to be damaged. When plugging in headphones, while the volume is high, the sound level can be so high, you can damage your ears. Yes damage that will last the set of your life, because loss of hearing, can't regenerate. For that reason some MP3 played, cill stop music playing, as soon as a headphone is plugged in.
Just start the music that was playing when you did lower he output volume if the music stops.

Music has become more mobile than ever before, as numerous devices can store and play music on-the-go. Companies have developed car audio decks that incorporate USB ports in the faceplate. This allows flash drives to be plugged into the deck, and music on the drive to be played. Flash drive format issues are minimal, considering nearly all flash drives are formatted in the FAT32 file system by default. FAT32 is readable by any operating system, or stereo deck with a USB por

Determine if the stereo deck in the vehicle is capable of playing music off a USB flash drive. Read the stereo deck user's manual, or inspect the deck faceplate for a USB port. Plug a USB flash drive into an available USB port on a computer. Check the drive to make sure there is enough available space for music files. Using Windows, double-click the desktop icon labeled "My Computer." Right-click the flash drive icon, and select "Properties." Capacity will be shown. Using Mac, click the flash drive icon once it appears on the desktop. Click "File" in the top menu bar, then click "Get Info." A dialog box appears, and capacity is listed. Drag and drop any desired music files onto the flash drive. Be sure the files are in .mp3 format. Although some stereo decks are capable of playing other music types, the .mp3 extension is universal and all decks will play it. Spend a short amount of time organizing the files into folders. Organize by genre, artist, or create mixed playlists. Selecting music while driving will become much less distracting. Close the drive window, and safely eject the flash drive from the computer. Plug the flash drive into the stereo deck of the vehicle. Select the USB port as the music source, via the stereo deck. Read the manufacturer's user manual if unsure of how to change the source. Adjust the volume, listen, and enjoy. Hope this helps.

Ddx 419 no sound ipod


No offense but this is actually not the solution. There is a quirk with some Kenwood DDX 419. The manual on page 24 makes it clear that it is supposed to play audio through an ipod cable alone, only if you want to stream audio and video or the Garmin App should you need the other cable with the dual plugs (usb and audio). I bought one for my car and had it installed last week and it works right from the USB (only) with my iphone 4s and does not need the extra audio plug in which is inferior sound quality (analog) compared to the USB only (digital). I bought a second deck for my wife's car and had them install it this week and it did not work with the USB alone. The one on demo in Future shop did not work either with the USB alone. The manual for the DDX 419 makes it clear that it is supposed to stream audio without the extra cable. It reads, "To listen to the music (digital): USB Audio cable for iPod/iPhone-- KCA-iP102 (optional accessory). Look up the cable by google searching and you will see that even on the Kenwood site it is a regular iPod/iPhone cable. There is obviously a glitch with certain decks and they are not addressing it. I am returning mine and getting a Pioneer.

Did you recently update your iPhone 3GS firmware to iOS 4.x ? There is a signficant number of people with this problem after the firmware update. Here are two possible solutions that have worked for some people.

1) Turn off your iPhone (hold the power switch down,then swipie off). Turn the deck on to your USB1 or USB2 (whatever you are using). Now plug the iPhone into the deck. This should turn the iPhone on, and "reset" the connection to the USB.

2) Turn the deck on and switch to the proper USB source. Connect the iPhone to the deck, then initiate a "hard reset" of the iPhone (hold the power

How do i transfer musics from pc to iphone? i failed to transfer it by using itunes lol. it says sync failed


I know a software Syncios is much more better than iTunes, which not only supports transferring music between PC and iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch, but also transferring other data, like photos, videos, movies, contacts, messages, podcasts, ebooks, apps, notes and bookmarks.
