Question about Kenwood KDC-X890 CD Player
Unit was installed in an '89 full size Bronco. It was brand new straight out of the box. All sources except CD work fine. When a cd is inserted it flashes "reading" once, then "loading" for about 5 seconds then ejects the cd. No other errors are displayed. I reset the unit and attempted to play a CD again with the same result. I also tried about 20 cd's on varied media, from CD-R, to store bought, new and old. I also tested the Cd's in other players and all worked fine. Is there a possibility that something is wired wrong? All speaker outputs are hooked to RCA jacks, so the only wires connected on the headunit are the keyed power, battery power, ground and remote for the amps. Is there something special you need to do to 'activate' the cd portion? The manual states the unit must be turned off from demo mode by pressing the control knob towards either AM or FM while in standby mode. When I do that, nothing happens. Does anyone have a suggestion? Thanks!
I am having the same problem but only with a KDC-MP335 unit. I installed it in a 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee to the stock system, pretty easy install just matching colors for wires and everything works (Radio). but not one CD plays. it says reading and it acts as if it is playing the tracks but no sound... what is going on? did I mess up wiring it or something?
