Question about Jensen MP5720 CD Player

1 Answer

Jensen MP5720 radio/faceplate connector is broken or missing spring

There is a plastic component with two tabs/prongs that project through the front of the radio body. The faceplate of my Jensen MP5720 is supposed to snap onto these tabs, but the component has no compression to hold it forward to make contact with the faceplate. It just swings/falls back inside the radio. I think someone forced off the original faceplate and broke something off this plastic component or made a spring come off, or both. I don't know what this thing is called, but I'd like to get a replacement. I've taken the radio out of the dash and taken the sleeve off and the front off the main radio body, so I'll definately be able to swap it out if I can get the replacement part. Got any ideas where I should try to find one? Thanks!

I was always afraid this might happen to me so I never removed the faceplate from the radio. This strategy worked fine for two years until two weeks ago. I didn't lock my car because of the freezing rain and somebody stole my faceplate and remote. Anyway I ordered a replacement radio from Amazon last week so I don't have rewire a new one. The replacement cost me $100. I don't really need the rest of the radio so make an offer, my email is cs1713@sbcglobal.net

The face plate does not light up anymore on my Jenson CS2010X so I can't see the stations. How to fix this?


You might not be able to fix this problem. But first, here is a sugestion you can try. Remove the faceplate and inspect the metal contacts on both the deck and the faceplate. Each contact operates a different function of the radio such as providing power to illuminate the faceplate. Make sure no contacts have been broken, pushed in, or have corrosion. Once they all look good, replace the faceplate and see if it lights up. If not, its an internal problem with the unit and should be professionally repaired or replaced.

Faceplate won't close


Alot, of the radios have a common problem with the connection from the radio's2.gif detachable face. What happens is corrosion builds up on the connectors between the pin and the connector itself. Sometimes you can clean it off with a small file. Also, some KENWOODS with the motorized face are known to have a problem with the ribbon cable connecting the face plate to the main board. The last time I repaired one I called KENWOOD2.gif and aquired the cable for about 65 dollars, what the problem is, is the cable is wrapped around a plastic white spindel with a high tension spring and places alot of pressure on the cable from the wear and tear of the face opening and it will cause strange problems such as: turning on and off, some buttons working while others don't, the display partially turning on and off, and the face to act peculiar and flip down halfway. In addition, sometimes the face open and close switches go bad, but I've never had to replace them yet. .
