Question about Kenwood KDC-X590 CD Player
Where exactly are the resistors at?
There are a series of them in the right front corner (as you look at it from the front) of the main circuit board, on the top side of the board. You need to take the top panel off the radio and then remove the CD deck. Be careful removing the CD deck, it has a ribbon cable connecting it to the main board, you can just move the CD deck off to the left back side without disconnecting the ribbon cable if you want. The CD deck is held in by 4 screws, one in each corner of the CD deck at the bottom of the deck. They screw into some brass stand-offs from the bottomo of the radio casing. The surface mounted resistors all have "2R7" on them, and all of them need the solder to be reflowed. Just a small touch of the soldering iron and a very small amount of solder on each side of each resistor. This will get the display working again 99% of the time with this problem for your model number. It is always possible that there is a different reason for the display going out, but for your model number, this is a very common problem.
