Question about Kenwood EZ500 CD/MP3/WMA Receiver

1 Answer

Loose Connections I had this professionally installed, yet the connections are loose. I'm not sure if this is faulty wiring or faulty hardware. When I push the unit in, the buttons work, but when I tree seeking for example, the buttons do not respond. Is this loose wiring or is there another problem with the EZ500?

Good Day,

It's probably more likely it's a problem with the unit itself. If it was faulty wiring you would loose power intermittently and or have one or more speaker's cutting in and out.

Try contacting Kenwood to see if your warranty is valid.

Good Luck

Hope this helps

Why my CD receiver boots and then stops

The radio's red wire is not getting the 12 V when ignition is turned on. Use a tester to confirm 12V on the radio's red wire when the ignition switch is turned to ACC or ON

I had to change my battery now my Pioneer DEH- P4000UB won't even turn on! I am so confused! I had it installed by Best Buy, I have no idea what to do! Please help! Thanks :-)

Double check the connections from the battery. There might be some loose wire. Did you change any connections at the back of the Radio?

The word protect comes out on my radio and i dont' have a manual for it

"protect" displays when there is a wiring fault. Check all connections at the deck to the wiring harness and then check where all the speakers and amp are connected.
"Protect" usually indicates a short or loose ground. So make sure all your connections are snug and not shorting out or coming loose.

I have a pioneer deh-p3600 cd player in my car and it recently stopped working. It would go on and off when I drove around after hitting bumps and such but now it doesn't work at all. Any suggestions.

pull it out and look for poor connections. maybe wasnt installed correctly and wire connections are breaking loose and or touching metal, tape up all connections and if problem is still there check all wiring for insulation missing and tape that area up , also make sure black wire(ground) is securely bolted down to metal!

Why does it say protect

This happens when there is a short on the speaker wiring. To protect the unit from getting damaged. Check all your speaker cable connections, and also the cabling for damage or loose connections that may be shorting out on other wire or metal part of the car.

Player has been working fine for about a year. Now, it turns off and comes back on periodically. At times it will turn off and loose all previously programmed settings.

if its loosing all memory settings then the constant voltage supply is faulty (yellow wire on rear of player) try tracing it back to the fuse box checking for bad connections

I got a Kenwood KDC-MP438U and its stuck on protected mode

Protected mode means that there is a speaker wire that is grounding out on the chassis, another wire or another wire. Check all the wire connections to make sure there is no loose wire that may be getting grounded out. After it's insulated properly and reconnected, hit the reset and you'll be back in business. k

No sound

check all connections-look for blown fuse either inline or at the fusebox-if that all checks out -check speaker wiring for any exposed,nicked or loose connections-if that checks out then make sure that your fader /balance settings are all good. if that doesnt get to the problem ya may want to take it into the shop and get your deck looked at.
