SOURCE: Kenwood receiver/sub problem

The amp's remote turn-on wire is probably connected to the blue wire coming from the back of the stereo - this is intended for a power antenna, which is why it only works when listening to the radio. Disconnect it from the blue wire and connect it to the blue/white wire coming from the back of the receiver and you should be good to go.

SOURCE: Adding MP3 Input to Kenwood R/C

To be honest, I can't find one spec of info on that stereo on the internet. It's possible the DIN connection you see is for controlling a CD changer. If so, it's possible you can use either this cable or this cable to turn it into an AUX input. But without a manual or anything, it's hard to know for sure. You have to contact Kenwood.

I would assume since it has a cassette player the deck itself is quite old. You can try to buy a CD laser cleaning kit, its essentially a CD with different brushes on them, they were more popular in the 90's and early 00's though so you may have to order them online, or BestBuy sells them for sure. Honestly I feel the kit could be a waste of money, but it may be worth a shot depending on how desperate you are to keep the same radio. If the radio is old, the most likely problem is the laser stopped reading, meaning you need a new radio.Good Luck!

You may get away with sliding something thin like a ruler down the side of CD magazine to disengage a lock. This works with some other brands of stacker.

The "Reset" button on Model# KRC-207S is located between the"ATT" (attenuator) and the "1" button. It is a tiny hole. Insert the end of a pen or pencil into the hole and hold for a few seconds and the unit will reset itself. Hope this helps...

Sony dvp-ns425p will play regular CD, but won't play any DVD

just open the player (4-6 screws) and clean the lens. I had a similar problem (plays VCD, CD but no DVD - tray will open immediately). It worked afterwards
