Question about Kenwood KDC-7024 CD Player
Hi The other day I went to eject a cd. Then suddenly the kenwood mask section shut itself and a second later opened again, then shuts then opens shuts and opens etc... This happens now all the time untill I turn the power off at the ignition. No buttons work when it is doing this. When it opens the lights come on breifly then off again when it starts to shut. I have tested the cars power supply its fine, I have also opened up the unit and retrived the cd. I can see no obvious signs inside of a mechanical fault and no obvious burn-outs on the board. Can you help? Thanks Ed Ps its only the mask section that opens not the cd access movement.
I have fixed a few of these problems approx 95% of the time the problem is a flex cable between the main unit & the face plate. The flex cable might be visible in some places. it it orange/yellowish colored. flat & about 1" wide. as the faceplate open & closes the cable is bent back & forth damaging the cable over time. The kenwood part # for you cable is J84-0154-15 the listed price is $18.65 CDN. it looks somewhat easy to replace, but it actully takes a while & a lot of patience. good luck

Some flip face stereos use a tiny micro switch to tell the onboard computer when the face is down or up and sometimes it uses the same switch for both positions sensing. It could be this switch is not working properly (dirty contacts, broken, bad wire, mis-aligned, etc.) and that is causing the problem. Good luck.
