This is usually an indication that the power board has a bad component and the signal wont switch on. The problem is usually related to capacitors and unless you want to replace the whole power supply (if you can find it,) the repair is down to the individual components and it technical in nature requiring troubleshooting gear and soldering skill

Cliks off when you turn up volume

How to use mp3 with kenwood kdc mp235

turn radio to stanby. hold function key until a menu appears. then switch on aux in. this should alow you to plug ipod in throough aux in on source menu.

My stereo kicks off as soon asyou turn it on tuner,CD,or AUX.if you reset it it comes right also stays on if you leave it on stanby.

Sounds like you have your constant power, and remote power wires mixed up. While your at it check all the connections and splices. Something is loose, maybe a ground as well.
