My kenwood KDC-X590 car stereo has no illumination but radio and cd player works. Is something burned out? HELP!!


there are about 8 - 10 surface mount resistors inside of the deck that need to be resoldered. They are on the front right of the board with the face toward you.

I can't get my Kenwood KDC-X590 out of demo mode. Help!


Press the [MENU] button for at least one second. Push the control knob toward [AM] or [FM] to select "DEMO." Press the control knob for two seconds to alternate between "DEMO ON" and "DEMO OFF."

Display screen not working


Sounds like you might have a bad connection where the faceplate connects to the unit, or the faceplate is bad.

This deck is in protect mode


A couple things may cause this:
If a speaker wire shorted out (either a voice coil or the wire itself is grounded; touches the vehicles chassis ground)
Solution: disconnect each speaker from the deck and see if it turns back on. 90% of the time thats the problem.

It could be overheating.

Need to disable bluetooth cell phone feature.


it is specifically made for iPod - iPhone. You must be near a vehicle that is accepting a call on a Kenwood.

The Kenwood Excelon KDC-X493 CD receiver was built from the ground up to accommodate an iPod® in your vehicle. This versatile stereo features a front-panel USB input for connecting and controlling your iPod, along with a 13-character display that shows off your artist and song info.

Looks like there is no way to disable Bluetooth. What you could do is borrow 5 phones and add them to the system. It will ignore any after 5 are installed.

Your manual is here and there is very little to be found with the search word 'disable', I suspect because that is what the unit is sold for.

Hey did u find the curcut # on the kenwood kdc-x590 if so pleas let us know !!! thanks for ur time


Are you talking about the circuit that lights the display? If so, you need to resolder the surface mount resistors in the front right corner on the top of the board. Front right while facing unit with top off and CD deck out. you will see a series of surface mount resistors and they all are connected in series. All of them need to be resoldered. That will make the display work again.
