My car battery died, and now my KCD-BT268U only shows "Standby" when I turn it on. No choice to see the Tuner, Aux, et cetera.

How do I get it back? I really miss listening to the radio!


On pg4 of the owners manual, it shows the following:

If you look at step #3, it shows how to get into STANDBY mode, then shows you how to get out of it in step #3.5. Press and hold the button with the magnifying glass and return arrow to exit. Hopefully this will work for you.

  • I did this. I can press SRC to turn it on and off again. It starts up with "Standby" showing. When I press the volume, the screen goes blank. There is a tiny transient "BT" in the lower left of the screen, but this goes away as well. I did read the manual. – Daniel Williams Feb 11 '18 at 18:34
  • Did you make sure you didn't blow any fuses. There are two power leads to the stereo. One is continuous +12vdc while the other is switched. Ensure both are working correctly. – Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 Feb 11 '18 at 18:38
