Try checking your speakers and speaker wires for shorts and/or grounds. Make sure none of your speaker wires have any bare spots. If your speakers and speaker wires are fine, you may have a bad internal output ic inside of the deck.
This is a pretty tough problem to give any answer with complete certainty.
I work at an authorized kenwood service center and it is rare that I see one with this particular problem. I fix about 5 to 10 kenwoods every week.
Since it does not recognise the cd player at all, it could be the one of the supply voltages that feed the cd deck.
It has 3 different supplies for the cd player.
On pin 2 of the connector is the first one I would suspect, it is around 8 volts. If that is missing there are 3 components I would look at. The first one is D5. It is a 8.2 volt zener diode. This is one that could be shorted and if it is the cd deck may not be recognized.
The next 2 components I would check would be Q9 and Q10.
If one of those are open or shorted you will get the same problem. Q9 is a 2SB1443 and Q10 is 2SC4081
if you plan on troubleshootng it yourself, I will post the other data for the other 2 supplies after you reply back.
In any case, I don't think that this is a problem that anybody can fix without some serious electronic troubleshooting.
sorry to say, there is no easy fix on this one.
hmmmmmmmmmm try alpine support. Audio Products Technical Support (Alpine Electronics of America, Inc.) (800) TECH-101 (1-800-832-4101) they should definitely help you out. thats definitely a problem with the decks with the slide out fronts.
those are odd numbers you decribed there
i understand what your saying to get the even numbers you have to use the remote and single click to what you want and if you want to stop a seek for frequencie hit the button back
you know foward select for scan and then back button for stop and then single press in what you need it takes a little fenness to control for even even numbers you just have to stop scan and seek single taps at a time
I am sorry to tell you this, but there is no easy fix after pressing the reset button. The unit is not even recognizing the cd player, so it could be one of many different problems, all of them being electronic and inside the unit.
It could be a voltage regulator that supplies the cd deck, it has 3 of them. It could be the ribbon cable that connects the cd deck to the main board, but that is more unlikely. It could even be the microprocessor. There is just no way to be certain without putting it on a test bench and troubleshooting it with the schematic in front of you.
If you have some electronic troubleshooting skills, I can email the schematic to you. I have it in PDF format and you can check it out as long as you have a power supply, multimeter and knowledge of electronics.
Otherwise, you will need to take it in to an authorized Kenwood repair center.
I hope you found this helpful, but you do have a serious problem with the unit.
I have been repairing these type of radios since they started making them a couple of years ago and this problem has had several different fixes for this same symptom and it has never been an easy fix.
