Question about Kenwood KDC-222 CD Player

1 Answer

AM Reception I just reinstalled the Kenwood KDC 222 in a different car. The AM reception has a lot of static now, the FM is fine. I hooked up the factory radio again, that is fine on both AM and FM. Is there an adjustment on the radio itself for reception?

Fm reception for weak stations poor. reception on car radio fine.


If there is no FM Antenna connection you can try to move the power cord to different positions and see if you get a better signal. If not then move the unit closer to a window or try various locations that might have better reception.

Kenwood RV7030 audio-video stereo has static without antenna


OK I am going to suggest two aerials for you. I would also NOT use the old cable as it will cause a lot of problems. It is best to replace it with the stuff they use for satellite dishes (see image).
The FM aerial will pick up signals from all sides. The TV aerial should give high quality signals and output for at least 5 sets.

SL100 static and bad FM reception


I have noticed various changes in my invehicle FM reception as well. There should be a external antenna that came with your car kit. This is precisely for these types of issues. It is designed to run along the windshield inside the car closest to the Cars radio antenna. It should plugin to the bottom of the cradle. Then tune it into a clean FM station (one that has no local station on it) and position the cradle and/or ext. antenna till you get the best reception in your vehicle. It could very well be that the antenna has come has loose on your car stereo backplane. You would probably notice decreased reception on regular AM/FM stations as well though.
Your wifi reception/functionality is a completely different animal and has no bearing on the FM transmitter in the car cradle. When your on wifi your not receiving signal from a sat. anymore just simply streaming internet audio like your computer.
Good luck.

Bad reception


I see you've already read the "Troubleshooting" section of the manual! The only other things I can think of to check would be the actual connection between the radio (aka head unit) and the antenna. It's usually just a press-fit connection behind the radio, but if it's loose, corroded, or is touching some other metal, it could affect the reception.
There's also the small possibility something changed at the transmitter tower for the radio station. That happened in my area once, where they changed the direction in which most of the signal power was being broadcast. Westside reception got better, eastside reception got worse.
