Hello,

 

My wife's car radio is a Kenwood DPX-5100BT. It goes fine except one of my boys has (somehow) managed to change the display language to Turkish (as far as I can tell). I've just spent a very frustrating 10 minutes trying to get it back into English so we can all read the display.

 

Try as I might, I can't find any language option in there. The online manual is useless; it doesn't show any sort of tree-like display (like some Alpine ones do) to show where to go. Using Google Translator on my phone I was able to reset the clock at least, but couldn't get any further.

 

Can anyone provide any assistance, or is a local Turkish-speaking person on the North Shore who could call over for a few minutes sometime to fix this? It's been like this for months now and we just can't figure it out.

 

She had her car serviced last week and the battery was replaced. I was hoping this would reset everything, but alas no.

 

Any help greatly appreciated. Thanks :)

do a factory reset and you will be able to select language

Yes I would happily do that - if I could find the option :(

Apparently there's a little hole to the bottom right of round knob in the middle that fits a paper clip ... try that ...

That's actually a pretty good suggestion, thanks. I gave it a try (twice) and it looked like it thought about it, then it switched off and back on...but still in Turkish :( [although I did have to reset the date and time]

 

This is what some of the menus look like, if this makes sense to anyone:

Unfortunately, I didn't get that, it just returned to how it was previously (although I had to select which function I wanted).

Upon reading the manual a little closer, it should reset it to all factory settings (excluding stations) but it doesn't seem to. It also looks like you set the language at first use - which she did set to English - but somewhere along the way it was changed, so it must be changeable somehow after it's been setup. The thing for me is just finding out how.

You could try using the Google translate phone app. I believe you can take pictures and it will translate the text or may need to type in the text.

You may be able to just translate turkish to english by typing into your phone the Turkish menu items. Write down on paper each translated item and hopefully you will soon be able to navigate your way around, and with luck, reset to English.

EG: According to Google translate, in your photo for example..ISLEV translates to FUNCTION.

Good luck..
or as they say in Turkish (according to Google translate)...

iyi şanslar!

Cheers for the suggestions...I've tried using the Google Translate option with the camera already but couldn't figure out where language settings might be...

 

The word is "DIL" for language (in Turkish) but I can't find that word in any of the settings, anywhere :(

Just in case there are different manuals about this is from a Kenwood site and appears to only give English or Turkish as options.


When you turn on the power for the first time (or [FACTORY RESET] is set to
[YES], 6), the display shows: “SEL LANGUAGE”  “PRESS”  “VOLUME
KNOB”
1 Turn the volume knob to select [ENG] (English) or [TUR] (Turkish),
then press the knob.
[ENG] is selected for the initial setup.
Then, the display shows: “CANCEL DEMO”  “PRESS”  “VOLUME
KNOB”.
2 Press the volume knob.
[YES] is selected for the initial setup.
