If the unit is already fried you may try to soak it in the highest alchol % of rubbing Alcohol for a day then allow the unit to dry Which should happen within a day or so because of the evaporation rate of the alcohol. This should remove the internally locked water and allow for the unit to resume Function without internally shorting.

The kenwood KDC-MP333 in my truck is connected to a set of kenwood speakers. But when I turn it on they won't work the stereo still shows the display but when I turn the stereo on it makes a sort of...


Disconnect the speakers and try it with another speaker or speakers not in the truck. If it works, the speakers or the wires to them are messed up. If it doesn't you probably damaged the output capacitor in the radio by turning it on without speakers attached. Realize that the speakers are part of the radio circuit and act as resistance. Without them, there is no resistance and it puts a strain on the radio.

Why won't my Kenwood car stereo recognize all the music on my flash drive?


I have the exact problem so I looked at the owners manual which referred me to a url. Bottom line, Kenwood only will look at 255 folders, my guess is it thought my individual songs (1099 so far) were folders. So I made 4 folders and to be safe, no more than 250 tracks, plugged it into my player, set it to random, and it works (so Far). So i theory you should be able to go up to 65000 files, provide you have a flashdrive big enough

How to bridge a kenwood kac-9105d


Are you referring to something like this, using two different amps? It is a mono amp, meaning there's one amp in the box.
"KAC-9105D also has a Dual Mono Drive connection that allows you to strap two KAC-9105D amps together to power a single subwoofer."Quoted fromhttp://www.kenwoodusa.com/Car_Entertainment/Amplifiers/KAC-9105D

Here's a link to a page out of the Yamaha Sound Reinforcement book. the top shows a stereo amp (1 box, two different amps inside) hooked up to drive two different speakers, which is known as 'stereo' mode.It then shows the two amps hooked to the opposite sides of the same speaker, which is known as 'bridge' mode.http://books57.net/ampOuts.gif

Any help?

Music just stop working. Now it flashes 'protect' and won't play. Wat do I do?


It sounds like there is a problem with your wiring. Usually the protect on an amplifier comes on when your amp is overheating. The overheating is usually caused by the wrong impedence, or not engouh air circulation. If you have a digital multimete (DMM), you can disconnect the speakers from the amp and measure the impedence. If you do not have one, you should take it to a local car stereo shop. They would be able to test this area for you. If they tell you that you have to buy another piece of equipment, please post the make and model for your amp(s) and subwoofer(s). This also goes for replacement factory speakers.

"PROTECT" is displayed on the car stereo when turned on


This is really easy to fix. Look on the face plate for a REALLY small hole. Put the tip of a pen in the hole and it should work. This usually means the stereo isn't wired properly so if the PROTECT keeps coming on after you've re-set it, take it to a dealer. To make sure you're everything is in properly. Hope this helps...

Security Code for Protect mode


Turn on the car so the radio is flashing "Protect." Look on the front / removable face of the stereo. On it you will find a small round hole - that's a reset button. Find a small paper clip, unfold the clip and stick it gently into the hole. The "Protect" will stop flashing, and Kenwood will be displayed. Unfortunately all your settings/presets will be gone, but at least the stereo is working again!
