    I posted wrong. I mean there is power going to the unit, but nothing comes on. The fuse is not blown.

    Hey, i checked both ribbons, and they do not have any cracks. however, I did find a resistor or capcitor (slot Q23) that melted the bottom plastic sheet. It is also swollen. Could that be the problem?

The problem is most often the ribbon cable that goes from the display to the main board. It must be replaced. There is no other fix for this.

    I understood your problem and I am still convinced that the ribbon cable from the face to the main board is at fault. It is a common problem with this radio.

    It would be appreciated if you would rate this solution.

    Thanks,

    Dave

KDC-MP4032 head unit wont turn on


hi, seeing that your kenwood showed up "protect" you may have an audio circuit/amplifier fault within the unit. try resetting the unit to see if unit comes "on" again. if the unit comes on and protect flashes again, then you definitely have an internal audio circuit fault. if not then check all power connections(yellow and red wire voltages, as well as ground connection), as well as the condition of the face pins!

Kenwood KDC-MP438U acts as if there is no power to it,dead nothin


The speaker wires are very sensitive. You need to make sure that they are not grounding out. Once the unit senses this it will shut off. Pull the plug out of the back and start over.

Kenwood kdc-mp 825

I had the 925 purchased from Ebay, but I sold the car with it.
it's probably the ribbon wire broken between the face and the unit. I know that on Ebay some they use to offer a repair for these type of units.

KDC-X869 Face Flips Halfway, Unit Turns Off


I have worked on many of these radios and there is a lever that contacts switch to determine position of face this lever wears out and switch does not operate properly causing radio to lose its mind. This is usually the cause of this failure unless flip gears have been damged somehow. contact kstahl65@att.net for additional info

Kenwood KDC-715s problem.


the kenwoods with the motorized face platesdevelop one problem with time. the flexable ribbon cable between the main unit & the face plate. as the face open & closes, over time wares out the cable. problem consists of face plate not opening/closing, display missing & and/or some or all buttons not working. note these can also be intermittent problems. typically the part number is located on the cable itself on the side where it pluggs into the main board. since you have a service manual, you should verify it in the manual. good luck.

Face plate wont move


First check the power fuse as well as the stanby or always on fuse. then if that does not work Try to disconnect the power and standby line and let the unit reset . This should be done for at least an hour or so.. Good Luck
