SOURCE: questions about my KENWOOD DDX512 RECEIVER.

the usb port it's a cable coming from the back of the unit and has to routed somewhere where you can get to it.
I know that if you install the bluetooth unit, you can connect another device to it because has a pass through connection.
if you have an earlier unit(serial#8020...) you will most likely have issues with the HD. doesn't hold the memory presets after shut down. Service dept. has to change an EROM inside the DDX.
sirius won't become xm pretty soon?
I own a DNX5120. I'm not an expert, just another owner. Our units have a new firmware 1.40, if you don't have it yet, download it from Kenwood. Bluetooth also has one.

SOURCE: kenwood ddx512 was working just fine now its in

Try checking all of your connections something may have come loose, usually its a speaker connection that may have come loose and come in contact with a piece of the car's chassis or a metal part. This will cause the 512 to go into Protect mode. When you fix this hit the reset button.

The unlock code usually only goes on if you previously put one on there. I would suggest calling Kenwood but there is a guy that claims he can fix this i have never tried this but you can. http://mike-unlockcodes.blogspot.com/

Richard, how did you flash it with the update? I have an ipod cable in my glovebox but no usb cable. Do I need to pull the radio and install my own cable?

CANNOT TURN ON DDX512. IT WAS ON AND ALL THE SUDDEN IT WONT COME BACK ON. HOW DO I GET IT TO COME BACK ON ?


1. Check the fuse at the radio and in the vehicles fuse box
2. Check the wiring of the radio to ensure nothing has come loose/disconnected
3. Remove the radio and test it on another power source to ensure it is working properly.

If it's not the fuse (Step 1) I recommend visiting a quality local Car Audio specialist and getting them to assist you.
