Question about Kenwood KDC-X890 CD Player

Brand New Unit Will Not Accept ANY Type of CD

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!

    Mine had to go back. Turned out it was a defective unit. It was replaced and the new one works perfectly fine.

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?

Need to change the source on my Polaroid PH-323016HD and have misplaced the remote control.

Without a remote control, you can't. If you wish to buy its original remote control, contact the authorized service centre, or authorized dealer to your device brand. They can either give you a genuine remote control to your device, or can direct you, from where can you purchase a suitable one.
To select a proper universal remote control, you should know about the number of digits to its set-up codes. There are 3 digit, 4 digit, 5 digit, 2 digit and even single digit codes, to some brand devices. After confirming this, check the sites linked here. Both the sites have set-up code list and set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. Check which brand remote control has set-up code/s to your device brand, and buy that one according to availability. Brand name of the remote control isn't a matter, but it should have set-up codes in its code list, to the device brand you have.
Please note: Every new universal remote control will have set-up code list, and set-up procedure along with its pack. Never accept a remote control, that hasn't both of this. For more details about the set-up codes, visit the sites.

Universal remote controls are available at most of the electronic spare part selling shops. Visit some on-line sites too, which deals with electronic spare parts.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device; to which you want set-up codes; in the "Search box at the top right of the display window" to get gathered related posts.
{View the site in web view or by a desktop to see the search box. Mobile view has no search box.}/

93 ford Bronco died while driving and now won't start

Alternator is bad.

To check:
1. Disconnect the new battery from Bronco.
2. Use another battery in place of your new battery (one that's inside).
3. If Bronco buck, then the Alternator is defective & not charging the new battery.
Check those two cables to Alternator.
Check with a DVM.
4. Or take out the new battery and have Advance Auto Part or AutoZone check for CCA rating.

I have a brand new straight from box LG TV model 32LD320. I have unpluged the HDMI from old TV ( where was working 100% OK) plugged into new TV. Mains switch on - and cannot get any chanels to report on...

HDMI sends video from a source likea bluray player or 'cable box' to tv it will not send signal so you can program channels from it

turn tv to the HDMI input you plugged device into and watch cideo from that source

you will need to connect some type of antenna to be able to program channels on tv

very few tvs need channels programmed these days since most people hook up a cable or sattelite receiver and change channels that way

hope this helps if not give me more speecific details and i can help you more

good luck

MEX-BT5700U, no sound in speakers in CD source, tuner source OK.

What many people do on this model is connect the remotes wires improperly. Use the solid blue wire for the amp and the blue with white stripe for the connection to the car.
