Radio is stuck on the FM3 channel, volume doesn't work, tuner doesn't work, pressing any other button causes NO DISC message to flash and radio to turn off -2009 corolla

Does Front Plate remove from Radio? If so Pop face plate and look for small pin hole that a paper clip could fit in. This is reset for Unit. Otherwise disconnect car battery for a couple minutes. I had similar issue with a JVC unit, It needs to be hit over its head to wake up.

Display for radio stuck in '7 SAFE' mode

This sounds like a Phillips Car Stereo:

To get the code in:
1. Turn the stereo off.
2. Turn off the ignition
3. Turn the ignition back on (dash warning lights on)
4. Hold and keep down the AS button on the stereo.
5. Turn the stereo on.
6. Release the AS button after 4 dashes appear on the display
7. Now enter code (if code = 7009. Press preset button 1 seven times, button
2 once
3 once
4 nine times
If you go past you can go round again by pressing the
preset button repeatedly
8. Once all 4 numbers are correct hold down AS again until you hear a beep (2 - 5 seconds)
9. The stereo after beeping will scan to program channels
You have 10 attempts to get the code in. However some models will not give you the number of attempts remaining!

Time delays work as follows:

Attempt 1. 10 seconds
Attemp 2. 30 seconds.
Attempt 3. 10 minutes.
Attempt 4. 20 minutes
Attempt 5. 40 minutes
Attempt 6. 80 minutes
Attempt 7 160 minutes
Attempt 8 320 minutes
Attempt 9. 640 minutes (yes that is 10 hours 40 minutes!!)

Vitally important thing to remember, the countdown timer works only when the radio is switched on. ANY interruption in the power will reset the timer!

So, be prepared for a VERY long wait to be able to enter the code!
Oh, and if it has reached 10 attempts, then it needs a dealer unlock.

Need to change the time on my clock on a factory radio/cd player on a 2004 chevrolet blazer, can you tell me how?

Most GM factory head units have two small buttons on the face of the unit that are labeled "H" and "M", and you need to press them with the tip of a pin or other similar item.

Press the "H" button for changing the Hours, and the "M" button for minutes

My dvd will not eject?

What model number is this.

A Kenwood will sometimes eject the disc when you press the reset button.
The reset button is a very small round hole that you need a pen tip or paperclip, something small to press it with. It is on the display.
If you can not find the reset switch you can always unplug the harness in the back of the radio for a minute and then plug it back in, but if you have a security code protected radio you will need to enter the code to use the radio again or use the remote to clear the code. If you need that done and have a remote, let me know and I will post the procedure for that, but i must have the model number of the radio. Be aware that by resetting the unit, you will need to set the clock and preset radio stations after.

If resetting does not work, you will need to take it to an authorized Kenwood service center for repair. There is no other end user method for ejecting the disc.

let me know if you need more help with this, but please remember to list the model number. Thanks

Avh-p5900dvd... I keep getting error -02-9e and it wont play cd,s or dvd,s can you help.

Owner's manual doesn't really say what the -02-9e error code means other than a disc error. They do recommend resetting the unit as a possible solution:
  1. Turn the ignition off.
  2. Remove the faceplate.
  3. On the right side of the front of the head unit (with the faceplate removed), press the reset button with a ball point pen.
You may have to call Pioneer directly to find out what the -02-9e code means specifically. 1-800-421-1404
