    Re: No sound

    Fuses are all ok, lighter does not work either, I don't know if the radio has been taken out, the car has a low mileage, maybe I have to take it out and check. The radio turns on, does not ask for a code but just no sound... There is no phone, maybe there was one before and while removing it some connectors were removed ? Any idea about how to remove that radio in a smouth way ??

    Re: No sound

    It's just a daily car, easy for us as we have 2 children. it has a 1.9Tid engine (110KW) and 6 speed auto gear, it has a leather upholstery and Xenon headlights, no navigation system. I don't know the exact version.
    It could be Bussiness, Elegance or Luxury, probably not Luxury ? I will post some pictures maybe you know what it is exactly ?

    Re: No sound

    Thanks Mazuk, I went through it yesterday morning and found out the radio can't be used in another car without going to a dealer (page 3) although I believe mine has never been taken out before but batterie has probably been changed. I got it out yesterday morning and checked all the connections.
    Everything seems OK to work fine but the most important (the sound) is missing...
    Speakers are connected, there is no error code...

    Re: No sound

    So, here a little update :
    This car has a non Bose audio system with 7 speakers and one amplifier in the trunk ref : 4617163
    I opened the amplifier and found inside an electronic component out of order (Toshiba TA8225H), don't know yet if there is more damage but at least I start to find out why there is no sound...
    Maybe I will buy another one or get this one repaired and then see if it comes back to life...

    Re: No sound

    I personally would replace it with a new unit, I have the Kenwood DNX7210BT in the 9-3 which if I had still got the BLS I'd have loved to put in there.

    Did you put this in (or have it professionally installed)? how much etc. Looks good on the reviews and what's more, at least (I'm assuming) updating the Garmin powered satnav is a darn sight easier than the present outdated and extremely expensive satnav discs. I now use tomtom HD live. So much better than the BLS onboard satnav, which is now so out of date, it is almost worse than useless! Not being able to put postcodes into the BLS fitted standard unit is an absolute pain in any case.

    How does your DNX7210BT get on with your mobile phone/steering wheel controls etc? This is the only thing which is really stopping me from investigating a replacement for my existing unit, because I wouldn't want to lose connectivity functionality with my iphone. One final issue, there doesn't appear to be DAB radio available on this unit and there is still a move by the Government to move us all onto DAB in the future. Wouldn't want to spend a shed load of money only to have to upgrade further later on because the best radio stations will have moved to DAB only.

    Re: No sound

    I had it installed at by a proper installer. everything is updatable via usb, I'be updated the firmware 3 times since having it from here http://www.kenwood-electronics.co.uk...avi/dnx7210bt/

    it deadeasy to do. not had aproblem with my iPhone 4s and the DNX7210BT I've even had it streaming internet radio while crusing down the motorway.

    I had been hanging on and on waiting for them to release a unit with DAB as I justed to have it, I still have the Kenwood DAB receiver sat in the garage but it will not connect to new Krnwood units.
    I also had them install the steering wheel pluggin and that works perfectly.

    I have always had TT's up to this unit and I like TT's but I've got used to the garmin very very quickly.

    I'm guessing that at some point Kenwood will bring out a DAB pluggin and a software update to allow it to run.

    Good to know ! I've an original radio 7 speakers without navigation, I bought only another amplifier so if there is still no sound it might be a good idea to replace the head unit.
