Question about Kenwood KDC-MP435U CD Player
The RCA connection is faulty on my head unit and as such signal to my amplifier is sporadic at best. I've had a look inside to see if i can solder the connection, but it does not look like i can do anything about it.
I was wondering if anyone knew a little bit more about this unit that could give me some tips on repairing it?
I fixed the sound problem with tech support from Kenwood. I had the blue wire from the Kenwood which is the antennae turn on wired to the amp turn on for the vehicle (2001 Blazer with Bose factory stereo). This is how I was told to wire it from the installation tech where I purchased the wiring harness. The tuning played fine because the Bose amp turned on when I played the tuner but when I played the cd or aux the amp turned off, thus no sound. The kenwood tech toldd me to wire the blue/white wire to the amp turn on for the vehicle so the amp would be on when ever power to the Kenwood was on. I rewired this way and everything works great now.

SOURCE: Display on Kenwood Out
I am not sure exactly what solution you are reffering to, but the KDC-MP532U has a problem with the display going out that is the result of heat stressed solder on the main board. The surface mount resistors that are located on the right side near the front of the unit, as you look into it with the display facing you, are the culprits. This is common in about 3 or 4 Kenwood models. These surface mount resistors are on the top of the board, so the board doesn't need to be taken out to fix it. Just the CD mech does. The surface mount resistors just need the solder reflowed, an easy enough job if you know how to solder. They are all lined up connected to each other, I don't remember the reference numbers, but if you can recognize what a surface mount resistor looks like, you should be able to find them very easy.
Thanks for the compliment on the other post, it is appreciated. A good rating would also be appreciated.
Thanks and good luck,
