Kenwood Sovereign Entré is designed for operation only on AC 120V current.
Entré must be connected to a 120V AC outlet that supplies constant voltage.
Do not use an outlet controlled by a switch, or the switched power outlet on
a receiver or other audio component.

How Do I Reset Entré?
How to Use and Enjoy Your Entré Entertainment Hub
Because free ISPs, AOL, and CompuServe do not use
standard methods of Internet connectivity, and do not open
their networks to outside users, you cannot use these ISPs
with Entré.
How Do I Reset Entré?
If Entré fails to respond to front panel or remote commands or if it responds
erroneously, use the following procedure to reset it:
·Hold the POWER button down until the Standby Indicator begins to flash
on and off. Then release the POWER button.
· When the Standby Indicator stops flashing and is lit constantly, push the
button to turn Entré on.
