    I rehooked new speakers to my Kenwood 104AR with the same system: tape, CD and turntable as before. Now it just keeps shutting down. I cannot find how to change any settings on the receiver. It does allow about 5 seconds to change things before shutting to standby. The speaker company says it's not the speakers of course.

SOURCE: NO memory in kenwood kdc-mp205

check your wiring in your vehicle to make sure that the yellow wire from the stereo gets "constant" power. It it what keeps your stereo's memory, and powers the audio amp in the stereo. If this wire is loosing power when you shut the key off in your car, you will loose all of your settings...bass, treble, tuner, clock, and also where you left off on your CD.

try to play a song from original cds.
maybe you brunt it in mp3 file, or its a different format. try to burn your song to cd-r.
if still, try to use nero to burner..
if it wont play your original cds and burnt cds,then the optical lens or the board is broken.
hope I helped you.

SOURCE: Receiver does not recognize AM/FM signal.

the FM/AM signal has separate inputs ,One RCA input for FM and AM as Speakers connectors. And
diferent arials cables, so if anyone doesnt receive signal or too low signal.
This a tipical Internal Tuner malfunction, needs to be repaired, or checked, by specialized tecnician.

Hello Paul, it would be good if you put what model is the Kenwood that you have
The problem may be in the laser pickup with low emission, or problems with the motors of the CD-holder plate or the transfer of the reader
Not having put the model Kenwood player, I can not send you any manual of the same
I wait your answer
Greetings Franco Dosil

Low Sound from Kenwood Record Player when Hooked up to Amp

Make sure the player is grounded to the amp chassis. Use the ground side of the AM antenna. Use the phono input of the amp, not a tape, CD, or DVD. The signal from a record player is much lower, hence, if you use the phono input for a tape player it is noisy and loud. Clean the needle too. I hope this solves the issue.

I Forgot code to my KENWOOD MP232 Car Stereo

i have the same radio the stock code on mine is 0000 try that ive also seen kenwood use 1234 or variants of it unhook the battery for a few mins and rehook it up it should reset the code to stock.

I have the Kenwood DDX512 and I cant get it to play music from a USB drive.

You will find the latest firmware listed there, 2.4.0. The unit ships with 1.0.0 which did the same thing for me not playing anything or even recognizing the USB device.

Download the file, unzip it and burn the included file, k08v5_update_78ca9780_2.4.0.ruf , to a cd. Put the cd in the drive while its running and it will automatically update your system. Make sure the vehicle is running at the time to ensure you have adequate power ... if it shuts down in the middle of it you'll brick the system.

It will restart, eject the cd and thats it. Plug in your USB device and it starts playing automatically.

Why not plug the cassette directly into the CD recorder? Are they trying to achieve some eqalization change? If not, then this should work. It's all analog at tape level.
