    I have the exact same problem, system still works, but I can't put it on aux to play my ipod. I almost bought a new faceplate, but I'm glad I say your post before I wasted my money.

    If the display doesn't work then the resistors on the board inside the stereo needs to be resoldered. Unscrew and remove the top cover and the CD slot. There are 10 of them located on the lower right side of the board. Good luck.

"kdc-mp442u reset button???? face plate? not there?help


It's usually behind the face plate. Take off the face plate there should be a reset button, you will need a small pin to reset it. I also included a link to the manual for more help if needed.

I have a kdc mp632u and i cant get any sound out of my subwoofers. The amp comes on and there is power to the amp but still no sound. can someone tell step by step what i have to do to get it to work with...


Hello,

First, make sure that the RCA's from the HU to your amp are properly connected, and fully seated on both ends. There are 2 sets of outputs. You should be using the ones on the left as you face the rear of the HU. Here is a link to the manual. Page 40 shows the connections on the back:

http://inform3.kenwoodusa.com/manuals/KDCX590.pdf

After making sure that everything is connected OK, check to see if you have the subwoofer output turned on your MP632U.

To do this, push the control knob on the right toward AM (toward the bottom). Subwoofer output switches off/on each time you push it. When it is on, the display reads "SW ON".

If this does not solve the problem, you most likely have a defect in either the HU or the amp.

Hope this helps! If it does, please rate as "FixYa." Thanks!

Power to stereo none to unit


There is a ribbon cable that goes from the display to the main board of the radio that may be bad, if you have everything connected properly and all you get is the red led, this is a possibility. No way for anybody to know if you have it wired wrong if they can not look at it themself.

The red wire is for power when the key is on, the yellow wire should get power all the time, the black wire is ground.

If you have those correct, the radio should at least turn on. If you have these right, you may need a new ribbon cable. The connector that interfaces with the detachable face must also be taken off the old ribbon cable and put on the new one, or get a new connector and just replace it. The ribbon cable does not come with that connector. It is soldered on the ribbon cable, so if you are not very good with a soldering iron, you should have a service center do it for you.

Let me know if you want the part number for the ribbon cable and/or connector, I can get those for you.

I can not guarantee that the ribbon cable is the problem, or that it is the only problem, but it is the most likely problem with that model number of Kenwood. I have repaired many of them, so I have a good idea what causes most of the problems, but I have seen times when the usual suspect is not the problem and something else like the LCD in the face is bad, or the IC that controls the display is bad. Even a voltage regulator on the main board of the radio can be at fault as well. There are probably about 10 different things that can cause that one problem, having an experienced technician is always the best way to determan the problem with certainty.

Let me know if I can be any more help for you.

Look for a small hole in the face plate. Take the tip of a pen and try holding it in for a few seconds. Re-setting it should work.....

the usual repair for a morotized face plate with symptions of no display, some buttons working or no buttons working & sometimes even the faceplay not moving, is the ribbon backthat connects the main unit to the face plate. Sometime you might be able to see the gold/yellow flat ribbon as the face plate flips. it's not too difficult to cange but it takes patience. the cables run around $15 to $30.00.if you replace it yourself, watch out incase the spring for the ribbon tension unwinds. good luck
