Kenwood KDC -X969 Won't power up

Stereo will not open, or power up.
I have replaced fuses, but not fixed.
However, when the fuse is pulled, or batery is disconnected and re connected, it seems the stereo resets, opens half way for 3 seconds, then closes and goes dormant again. With the back plate off, I do see a flashing red light.
I have cleaned connections as well....????
Any ideas? my kenwood kdc-x969 locked up red lights on checked for power at the red and yellow wire its ok. unpluged and door open half way then closes again.

Try pressing the reset button when it slides halfway open. It's a little hidden on the main button panel at the bottom. You'll need a pencil or something to press it. This usually happens to me when it's too cold and I have the panel angle set to full down tilt on my 879.

I have a Kenwood KDC-MP2032 installed in a boat. I changed the battery in the boat and now I can't get the tuner to power on. If I need to replace a fuse, where are they and what size fuse do I...


Try to check first the fuse on the fuse box of your boat if it is still good then the fuse of your stereo is located at the back of the stereo itself. Detached the stereo from its housing or holder you will see the fuse at the back of it.

Kdc-x969, when the unit is tured on the face does not flip down. most buttons turn the unit off but the face flips down instead of up when it shuts off


It very well could be that the internal motor that moves the faceplate is going out or has already gone out. It sounds to me like that could be the problem.

I have a Kenwood KDC-MP435U radio in my car and when ever I turn in up kinda loud it will shut off and come back on on its own. Any idea why this is or how I can fix it?


The wattage of the speaker is higher than the required wattage of the stereo. The stereo cannot drive the speaker very well. Use an amplifier if you want to have a loud sounds. Or if you already have sound set-up make sure that you have a capacitor for your amplifiers and fuses to support the power input to your stereo.

How to change the fuse on a kdc-mp2035


Hi.

You need to pull the unit out from the dash. At the back side of the stereo you will find a 10-amp fuse inserted into the chassis of your Kenwood.

See the red 10 amps fuse on picture below:

No Sound - boat stereo


Assuming that the four speakers are connected to the amplifier, then the amp is the most likely problem component. Does the amplifier show a power light when the system is turned on? Note that there is probably another fuse in the amplifier power wire, near the battery.
