First of all , your Kenwood shows only Protect on the display when your speakerwires are conflicting with each other , but when you cannot find the problem there....

disconnect them one by one to see wich speaker in your car is conflicting (shortcuts).

Replace that speaker and your kenwood will work just fine.

I had the same problem here with a brand new Clarion speaker .

In my case I just hit the reset button. The reset button is on the front, just above the headphone jack. I used a paperclip to push in while the radio was on and it worked immediately! The word "protect" disappeared, then I just had to push the power button to turn it on.

"kdc-mp442u reset button???? face plate? not there?help


It's usually behind the face plate. Take off the face plate there should be a reset button, you will need a small pin to reset it. I also included a link to the manual for more help if needed.

Kenwood KDC-MP732 CD Player in protect mode how do i get it off had a blown speaker fixed it and still in protect mode


Protect Mode (Blink): The speaker wire has a short-circuit or touches the chassis of the vehicle, and then the protection function is activated.

Solution: Wire or insulate the speaker cable properly and press the reset button.

Here is a copy of the Instruction Manual for the Kenwood KDC-X790 and KDC-MP732.

check speakers for a short protect means one of the speakers are shorting so check all the connections on speakers or if you have a multimeter put the black to ground and put it on contanuity and check from the plug at the unit and it will beep if one is shorting then you know which one to check instead of pulling your whole car apart:)

I have a KDC-MP442U and i need to shut off the demo mode how do i do it?


Press and hold your search button for about a second.
Now in function mode, turn your (AUD) round knob until "Demo Mode" is displayed.
Then press and hold the (AUD) knob for a couple of seconds, this will allow you to cut it ON or Off.

See page 19 in your manual. -Good Listening

Kenwood KDC MP442U: Menu Button


Hello priyanka2424,

The menu button is the one to the lower right of the volume control and is marked with the ">||" symbol. It's shown on page 22 of the manual. To enter menu mode, press and hold the button for 1 second and "MENU" is displayed.

Hope this helps. If it does, please rate as "FixYa".

Security Code for Protect mode


Turn on the car so the radio is flashing "Protect." Look on the front / removable face of the stereo. On it you will find a small round hole - that's a reset button. Find a small paper clip, unfold the clip and stick it gently into the hole. The "Protect" will stop flashing, and Kenwood will be displayed. Unfortunately all your settings/presets will be gone, but at least the stereo is working again!
