Question about Kenwood KDC-519 CD Player
I recently baught a vehicle with the KDC-519 unit installed. The unit flipped down when the vehicle was on, and flipped up when the vehicle was off. The buttons, however, did nothing when pressed. I looked at a product manual online and did a s it said: I pressed the reset button. The display all shut off to do what I thought was a reset, but then it flipped half way open and half way closed. It is now sitting out of my dash looking like a little cup holder and nothing I press or do does anything. What is going on? It flipped before I reset it. I'de also like to get the buttons to work once it actually gets back to it's normal location. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Check the wire braid going out to the faceplate. Although this is a fancy feature. it is very problematic. But usually it looks like a flat plastic strip with brown stipes on it. Sony calls it a flexible circuit board. after so many flips wires break the buttons stop working and when the face gets just is the right place it stops turning. but is repairable if you can order the braid from Kenwood about a skill level five to put in.
