I also created a tutorial on fixing faceplates with 2R7 resistors (refer to my tip).
But, your unit will have a different chassis, as the faceplate is also a video display.
First you need to determine if the buttons on the faceplate are operating the various functions. If the buttons are NOT operating, then the faceplate itself (or connection to the main unit) can be considered faulty.
It's highly probable that the RIBBON cable (which connects faceplate to the inside of the unit) may be defective - this is common in some Kenwood units.
Try searching Google or youtube for ribbon cable repairs etc.
go to ebay and type in the model number of the unit and it will bring up some part that can fix the problem. i had the same problem and i just ordered the part. its actually a ribbon connector. im sure you just open up the radio and take the old one out and connect the new one up. this seems to be a common problem with this unit. the ribbon just starts to tear, and as it tears, you will start to lose functions on the stereo. i happen to like this stereo, so i decided to repair it. good luck with yours.
The problem is the ribbon cable,the one connects the face to the main board,if you live in USA you can order it from pacparts.com or sony.com.
For replace it you will need to open the unit and open the face by moving manually the gears,then remove the side screws of the face and remove face,then remove the cd mech. you will see the ribbon connector.Just replaced and put everthing back togheter.
If the unit is a flip face then suspect the ribbon cable to the main circuit board from the front display. If it isn't a flip face then suspect that the back light lamps are out. If you can see a very very very dim image of the display when it is running then for sure it is a back light problem.
If this is a "flip face" type of display then you may have a broken lead in the ribbon cable that connects to the main board from the flip face. This is a very common problem. You'll need to replace that ribbon cable.
