Try finding a solid ground and make sure theres not only a hot lead but also an ignition lead. If that doesn't work, you might have to a stereo shop look at it. Wait until best buy offers a coupon, usually every 4 months.

You could possible have a bad flexible cable. It is the cable that goes from the face to the main board. Sometimes one or more of the traces on the cable break. Depending on which traces break, different problems may occur.

I have the code for my Krc-585 and have entered the code 5 times when "code" appears on the screen,Now it's just stuck on "waiting" with a 4 below it?I'm over waiting I want to crank this puppy!! thanks...

You are entering the wrong code ...that is why it is not accepting it and going into WAITING.

Unfortunately Kenwood codes are not available for free from anywhere on the Internet.

Main Dealer or Decoding Service only.

To rest the WAITING, leave it SWITCHED ON...UNDISTURBED for a couple of hours and it will automatically reset itself

Can't adjust the clock of my kenwood krc 585 car stereo

I accidentally discovererd how to do it...after pressing the 'menu' button several times you will finally come up with a screen saying 'clk adjst' or similar. Once this screen is up, press the top navigation button (one of the four nav buttons above the menu button) for several seconds until the clock appears and the hour is blinking. Use the same top button to advance the hour. Then use the right nav button to advance minutes. Then hit the menu button again to save. You may need to experiment a bit but be patient. I had the unit switched on, with the display showing FM stations when I discovered this. Good luck !
