If you have checked all of your wiring and fuses and already tried hitting the reset button you should first remove the faceplate and check the contacts on the main unit and the back of the faceplate. if they are dirty clean them (with power off) with contact cleaner or a small eraser. if your lucky that will fix the problem but most likely you have a bad ribbon cable. this cable attaches the faceplate contacts to the main unit and flexes as the face tilts. after time these cables get small cracks that may not be visible. you can usualy buy the part from a place like pacparts.com and replace it to solve your problem.

I have no display on my kenwood radio, but it will play the radio fm stations. the cd door will not open either.


Use a small pick tool (like dentists use) to reshape those brass connectors on the back of the face plate. If this model has a ribbon instead of brass connectors it's junk. Make sure where the connectors meet the head unit is clean.

Display on kdc-mp638u not working


These units are pretty cut, and dry.. Basicly the only thing you can check for yourself is connection. If the connection between the face plate, and the deck is good, and tight then you have one of 2 problems.
1) Bad face plate. Fix= $90-$130

2) Bad connection to the board on the radio Fix $60-$120

There is however a VERY off chance the processor is jumbled up, and wont cost you a dime to do a cold reset, so give it a shot.

To reset this unit simply remove the face plate, and locate the rest button. It is very small, but easy to find. Just use an ink pen or something of similar size to push the button.

Kenwood kdc 7009 - just bought car w/ stereo in it, but no remote or codes ?


Look for a small hole in the face plate. Take the tip of a pen and try holding it in for a few seconds. Re-setting it should work.....

Kenwood kdc-mp528 amp/speaker problem???


This is a common mistake. This problem indicates that you are using the solid blue wire from the head unit to the remote turn-on on the amp. This is a power antenna wire that only receives power when on FM radio. You need to replace this with the Blue & White wire from the head unit (power control wire) to your remote turn-on on your amp. This should solve your issue.
