Question about Kenwood KDC-MP228 CD Player
I've forgotten my 4 digit security code. Does anybody know if there's a "master reset" or am I stuck sending it to a Kenwood dealer?
Here is the link for the user manual if you need it; http://inform2.kenwoodusa.com/manuals/KDCMP228.pdf Page 5 shows the reset button, page 19 shows all the security code procedures which have to be followed even after a reset. This site has a few partial methods which might be worth trying for your player but unfortunately no complete solution; http://forum.ecoustics.com/bbs/messages/4/312069.html Sorry but I think it has to be a dealer - if it was so easy there would be no point having security codes at all - Kenwood says; "How do I reset my security code? If you do not know the security code for your unit, you will need to take the unit to a Kenwood authorized service center to have it decoded. The code feature can only be activated when the code has been entered twice, so it isn't accidentally activated. The service center will often require you to provide a proof of purchase as this feature is designed for theft prevention and the proof of purchase will ensure you are the rightful owner of the product. You can locate the nearest service center in your area here, or by calling (800) KENWOOD. Though we try to locate service facilities in local areas for our customers, at times consumers may be required to ship their product to the facility for repair. Once you have had your code reset, please make a note of the code and keep it in a safe place away from your vehicle." Hope this helps - sorry if bad news :)
