Hi Don and welcome to the site, I’m Louie. Sorry you had to wait awhile but I’ll do my best to help.

Initially and since this is a security issue, the prescribed approach is to bring this concern to the attention of an authorized Kenwood Service Center with the serial number of the KDC-X692 and proof of ownership.

Have you considered / tried this approach ?
