Check if you have a dvd rom or writer
then go online and install VLC media player
try playing your DVD
it will run as for playing dvd you need a dvd running software

    in otherwords the device may be faulty

  • Ekse Jun 10, 2008

    yes there is no need to download any software for your car system.

    Heres the user manual

    Disc error - a unplayable disc is inserted

    read error - the disk is upside-down or the disk is quite dirty.

    there may be a problem in the lens, you can try a dvd lens cleaner or contact the dealer.. get it repaired somewhere.

    Expert Ginko has posted very good advice on cleaning the lens on this topic

    If it happens always with same disk (or disks), then the disk is either dirty, scratched , or faulty.
    If disk is dirty (sometimes you cannot even see it but they are dirty), try cleaning the disk with cold water, and rinse well with a soft cloth, ensuring not to leave wet spots or cloth hairs.
    Done this try the disk again.
    If it is not the disk, then usually it is the lens. In this case you will have same problem with majority of your cds.
    To clean the lens start using a dvd cleaner and cleaning solution. This is a mild way to clean lens, often it is not enough.
    The complete lens-cleaning procedure involve opening the defvice, acessing the lens pickup, and manually cleaning the lens with cotton and isopropyl alcohol.

    As simple solution you can also try blowing some canned air on the lens. If this and the lens cleaning kit does not work, you should remove the cover, access the lens pickup, and perform a direct cleaning with isopropyl alcohol and soft cotton.
    If the lens is not dirty but scratched or opaque you may need to replace the lens pickup, in this case the job may not be worth.

    Here is how the inside looks like on a Denon similar model:

Iv just fitted a kenwood kvt 815 to my car im trying to play a dvd and its saying region code error

Countries around the world have their own REGIONS. If your DVD unit is for the American market then it will only read and play discs that are REGION 1 or REGION FREE. Anything else it will not. REGION 1 : United States, U.S. territories REGION 2 : Europe, Middle East, Egypt, Japan, South Africa, Swaziland, Lesotho, Greenland REGION 3 : Southeast Asia, REGION 4 : Mexico, Central America, South America, Australia, New Zealand, Oceania REGION 5 : India, Afghanistan, Ukraine, Belarus, Russia REGION 6 : People's Republic of China, Hong Kong
I believe you get the idea.

Kenwood kvt m700- playing cds

The M700 is purely a monitor so you will not be able to control play, pause, stop, skip, FF or RWD. I use my DVD player as a CD player and have to use the DVD remote to change tracks.
