How to set up clock on kenwood kdc 138


Hello... sorry to hear you are having problems. The correct procedure is to press the "SRC" button and put the player in standby "STBY" mode. Once in standby mode, press the small button labeled menu on the bottom right corner and hold it for 2-3 seconds. "CLK" will appear. Press the small button inside of the "square" on the right side of the radio and hold it for 2-3 seconds. The clock will appear and will be flashing. Use the up and down arrows on the "square" to change the hour and the left and right on the "square" to change the minutes. After you get it set, press the menu button once more on the bottom right corner and it will take you back out of the menu. Hope this helps!!

2 problems, what are the red and yellow wires on a Kenwood kdc-mp2028? and can you install a used kenwood without the remote?


You can use the head unit with no remote - that's just an accessory. As for the wires, the red is switched power (this gets wired in so that it only has power when the key is on - when the key is off, it turns off the radio). The yellow is constant 12v power (to maintain power to the head unit so that memory settings, treble/bass settings, and the clock are maintained when the vehicle is shut off).

I recently purchased a kenwood KDC-MP208 and am having difficulty setting it to display the time.


First, set the clock if it isn't already set. You need to get your cd player into standby mode and then hold the "boost" button. This should get you into a menu. Use the up and down pad to scroll through the options until you find "clock" hold the center button to get into the mode, to set the clock. Once in use the up and down, left and right pad to set the time. Then press the menu button to get out. Press the source button to get back into a normal mode, then hold that "boost" button again. This should bring you into a different menu. scroll through the menu until you see "display" and you should be able to choose to display clock in there. I hope I didn't steer you wrong. Let me know if you need further help. Good luck
