Question about Kenwood KDC-MP528 CD Player

1 Answer

Kenwood KDC-MP528 I recently dropped the faceplate and the display completely went out. Everything still works fine but just no display. I need to know how to turn on the aux input setting without using the display.

    Something similar to a user manual for most cell phones would be perfect for the fact that it can help navigate your way through the menu options in the order that they appear on the device itself. I downloaded a user manual online before but it was not at all useful. Help me please!

  • Blake Bargas May 29, 2007

    The owners manual does describe where and what the aux. input does, but without being able to see the display this is useless. When you push menu for 2 sec. while in standby mode, and are taken into the menu, now what? what buttons do you push, is it menu , how many times, then you use the knob to choose on or off, but if you cant visually see the display you are left out in the dark. Someone who has one of these stereo's KDCMP528 and can see the display please take a notepad and 5 minutes to help me out. How many menu options are there, order they go in? Please its not that difficult.

    And for gods sakes stop saying that it is described in detail in manual, it is described in detail, assuming you can see the display.

    Is there anyway that another faceplate could fit into the CDM9801 Possibly CDe141 I want to know for the purpose of the aux input If it does not fit are there any other solutions

  • Anonymous Mar 24, 2014

    unable to get aux input, can't open menu to change it, it only goes to the "code set" while I hold the menu button down (to enter menu settings). I am trying to get the aux input to work and also get the HD radio function to work. Both need access to the menu functions.

    Hey, take it easy. I am just trying to help.

    Here is another solution:

    In the lower right hand or the faceplate , there is a button labeled 'SRCE' ,
    It is also on the upper right hand corner of th eremote control.

    If you press this, it will change the source sequentially in the following order:

    SIRIUS tuner (option )
    TUNER or HD Radio
    CD CH (external CD, optional)
    Auxiliary input (for KDC-MP5028/MP528)
    Auxiliary input, (external )
    Standy (illumination mode only)

    I hope this helps.

The player will not eject the cd but it will not play it either.

I know it sound crazy, but turn the system on, press eject while using a PLASTIC knife to lift the CD in the player. If the system is stock also try disconnecting the radio fuse for about 10 minutes or so with the car off. Reconnect it to see if the radio resets. You'll know the power completely went out because you'll have to reset your stations. By Resetting, hopefully the issue will solve itself. In a few of the system issues I've seen, when the motor won't open the faceplate, or the CD player won't give the CD back. I usually remove the faceplate or disconnect the negative side of the battery for about ten minutes. Try this if the fuse removal doesn't work. Good look. Let me know how it goes. there are other things to try.

Pioneer deq 7600 display went black today the eq works fine.

the faceplate contacts may need to be cleaned. remove the faceplate, and using an eraser, clean the metal tabs on the main unit and rear of the faceplate.
If this doesnt remedy the problem, service is required. May be the light unit in the faceplate.

No display on faceplate unless I push on it

Three possible faults. Irst choice would be connector on radio you see when faceplate is removed may have some oxidation on pins. Sometimes with a small fine point file or dental pick you can try to scrape off any visible oxidation use caution not to bend any pins and be sure radio has no power . 2nd choice could be worn flex cable that connects to main p.c.b. and Third is chassis that keyboard connects to may be slightly bent causing a bad connection. I have a PDF service manual if you need it
