KDC-MP919 No display

My kenwood deck isn't working. Well everything else works, except for the display on its regular position. When I press the eject button so that the motorized faceplate is horizontal, the display seems to work. When its back in its regular vertical position, theres nothing on the screen. Everything else works okay, its just the display. Anyone have any answers for this?

You probably have a break in the flexible ribbon cable that goes between the flip face and the mother board. Try for a replacement cable.

My kenwood KDC-X590 car stereo has no illumination but radio and cd player works. Is something burned out? HELP!!

there are about 8 - 10 surface mount resistors inside of the deck that need to be resoldered. They are on the front right of the board with the face toward you.

Display screen not working

Sounds like you might have a bad connection where the faceplate connects to the unit, or the faceplate is bad.

The deck gets power but wont function.When its on, the faceplate rolls over & then it freezes.

there is a flexible cable that goes from the face to the main motherboard. the cable is most likely bad and needs to be replaced.

With the amount of use in four years I will say you definatly got your moneies worth from it.  From the way it sounds, there is a small paper thin ribbon cable that connects from the main body of the radio to the head unit itself.  With the amount of times this thing has been used the ribbon cable sounds like it has finally gone bad.  The best way for me to have you demonstrate this is to take a piece of paper and with a razor cut a **** in the middle of it and then folt the paper in the same direction as the ****.  When the cable is flat the wires in the cable make connection and when the cable is bent there is no connection to certain areas of the cable.

Kenwood KDC-MPV619. No remote. Need unlock code for deck.

I had the same problem with my kdc-mpv619. I had bought a new truck that didn't have a remote and the screen says enter code. You do need a remote to fix it, but what they don't tell you is a universal remote will work. I used my direct tv remote and looked up all the codes for kenwood.

The one that worked for me was 30337 (not sure if that would work for you).

1) The way I tested it was go to my stereo and I held down the display button + volume up button. (This should remove the - - - - sign but it will still say CODE).

2) Then you press the 5 button on the remote and if the screen says CODEK then you know the remote works.

(to switch from K to C to A to R press the (>>) button on the screen.

3) Enter the code KCAR (the display will say CODEKCAR)

4) Final Step is hold do the fast forward button (>>) on the screen.

It should work for you after that ;-)
