Signal Interruptions - Static

My Kenwood receiver worked flawlessly for about 6 months. Then I started getting interruptions in the signal. Sometimes it would simply cut out, other times there would be a loud pop followed by REALLY LOUD static. These interruptions were fortunately temporary. The problem has gotten worse and worse. In the last week, it's taken on a new form: the signal is perfect when I turn the car on in the morning, it lasts for 1-3 minutes, then cuts out. Off. Silence. Zippo. Nada. I paid over $300 for this thing, because I wanted the best available. Of course, all my frinds with cheapo receivers have had no problems. Any ideas out there? I assume it's a problem in the circuits somewhere, and I'm basically screwed. Thanks for any help!

I hope that you have had this unit for a while because it has been out of date for quite some time. I had this unit as well and furtunately the problems exsisted while under warrenty and I was able to get it fixed. Version 2 seemed to be better, the (A2). Sorry for the info, but vA1 was a bad unit if you ask me.

I am not getting movies that stay on, I pay monthly, haven't used Netflix for quite a while, and now that I decide to use it, there are many interruptions. Need to speak to someone about this problem!

Interruptions in Netflix streaming services usually arise from a lack of bandwidth from either your current Internet Plan (check with your ISP, cable, DSL, etc) or from the distance your player (blu-ray, laptop, etc) are from the router that is streaming the video. You can either move to a place in your home that has better signal, change your router for a more modern version (one that is Wireless AC with a rated distance of 600).

I have had an MSI U210 notebook for a few months now, and randomly my wireless connection will fail, even though two other laptops in my house have completely fine connection. Please help! I cant deal...

Have you confirmed this by trying to use your MSI RIGHT NEXT to the router? Degradation in signal can lead to connection interruptions. If your laptop functions like the other two when you get close to the wireless router (the device that puts out the wireless signal) then that means there is just too much stuff in between the laptop and router when you try to use it, therefore causing signal interruptions. The radio waves put out by wireless routers are typically not able to go through many solid objects.
If this isn't then problem, then try updating your drivers for the wireless adapter in your notebook. Go to MSI's site, go to their support section, and download the wireless adapter drivers for your model. Hopefully that clears it up.
Good luck.

I just installed an alpine deck and all i get is the word 'interrupt' on the display and nothing will play.

When a device having the interrupt feature (such as a cellular telephone) is connected to the receiver, the audio signal will be automatically muted whenever the interrupt signal is received from the device. The supplied wiring harness contains a pink/black Interrupt lead that needs to be connected to the device's interrupt signal connection.

Kenwood DDx8017 with navigation

Which NAV system are you using with it? KNA-G510, etc needs to be plugged into the NAV port on back and then you need to go into the System Settings to enable the NAV option and voice interruptions correctly. You'll want to look for AV Interface in the System Settings.

Here is the DDX8017 manual for some help:

Transferring from the PC back to the camcorder

Since the transfer of digital signal to the camcorder is fully automatic (no controls or adjustments of the process are active other then start or stop) the signal coming from the computer MUST be continuous. If any glitches or interruptions are present in the signal coming from the computer, the camcorder will automatically cancel the connection.
