Setting-Up and Using Your
KB-IR1 InfraRed keyboard
Congratulations! Your KB-IR1 IR keyboard will make it quicker and easier for you to program disc and track titles into your
Kenwood 200 disc CD changer.
Since your keyboard duplicates the functions of the remote control that was included with your CD changer, before using it you
should read your CD changer's instruction manual to become familiar with all of the different functions that can be controlled by
the remote and keyboard.
1. Removing the Battery Cover
Remove the battery cover by pressing down on the embossed
arrow and sliding the cover off in the direction indicated by the
arrow in the diagram to the right.
2. Selecting the Model
Important: Your keyboard is designed to be used with several
different models of Kenwood CD players.
Before installing the batteries you must set the "DIP"
switches located beneath the battery cover to match your par-
ticular changer model.
Set the DIP switches to match your changer's model according
to the diagram to the right.
3. Installing the batteries
After removing the battery cover and setting the DIP switches
as described above, insert 2 "AA" batteries (not included) as
shown in the diagram to the right.
Replace both batteries with fresh ones when the "Batt Low"
indicator (located on the top of the keyboard) is lit.
To maximize battery life, your keyboard has a Sleep Mode, and
is only "on" when you are pressing a key. When you are not
using your keyboard store it so that the keys are not accidental-
ly being pressed.
If you're not going to be using your keyboard for a long period
of time, remove the batteries.
4. Operating Range
When using your keyboard, point its front edge (where the IR
transmitter is located) towards the CD changer.
The keyboard will operate up to 20 feet away and 30 degress
off-axis from your CD player. If you use the keyboard outside of
this range, it may not function properly. See the diagram to the
