Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question. That red light blinking might be a cursor... have you tried moving it with the right-arrow or other appropriate control? Was the battery unhooked recently? if so, then that could have thrown the Kenwood device into anti-theft mode and caused it to shut down except for a prompt for a code number to re-activate it.

Hi,actually that blinking red light always blinked every 4seconds and the light is not a cursor (it's just a blinking light and doesn't move) and none of the push in controls respond to touch and the touch screen is blank and further the battery wasn't disconected

And there were no prompts or visual codes to read,so I'm wondering where to go from here

If it is possible to turn the device Off, do so, and leave it Off for about 20 minutes or longer, before trying it again.
