Kenwood KVT-715DVD Car DVD Player - Answered Questions & Fixed issues

According to this site, , the data (brain to monitor) cable for the KVT-715DVD has the part number of 880H07-3078-72 . This is a discontinued part . There are a few EBay auctions that may still sell the part. There are no vendors that I trust that have the data cable. I wish that I had better news for you. Cindy Wells

If you can, try checking your wire connections. If they check out fine, try checking your fuses and wiring for power.

Try unplugging the unit for 60 minutes, then plug back in and try it again. This will reset the processor and hopefully the unit will operate normally. Check all the speaker wiring for shorts, make sure they're also not touching the chassis of the receiver, or are not otherwise pinched or frayed. If all looks well, try disconnecting all the speakers and cycle the power off, then on again. If you have "protect" on the screen, OR the unit shuts down, or fails to power up with no load connected, then the unit has a bad output transistor, or capacitor and is in need of service. I can send you the contact info for a Service Center near you if you'd like.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

The data cable (IP Bus) can connect to several different component designed for your unit, i.e. xm/sirius tuner, HD radio tuner, CD changer, etc.

check all your fuses. check power for the battery(yellow) wire and red wire(ignition- key must be on), and if all of those are good then check the fuse on the back of the stereo itself, i think it has a 15amp mini fuse in it.

sometimes you need to disconnect power to the radio completely for a few minutes for the microprocessor to completely reset itself. if that doesn't work, you have a problem with the cd mech itself.

Hi first check the ground wire from the amp. It needs to be to a body bolt that's less then 18" from the amp and is clean no paint ect. raw metal. Also the rca wire to the amp should be ran on the opposite side of the car then the power wires. This should reduce engine noise. They also sell a noise reducer that helps in vehicles that are wired correctly but still have a engine noise.
