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.

Take of your positive battery cable. This should erase all your memory, since the car has no more power.

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.

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:

Aftermarket Stereo connection


hi there
if you matched all the wires from the harness to the kenwood deck and its not working don't worry you just missed the last step........(all wires attached that a colour coded connected)
simply turn your car on.........now on the front of the kenwood deck there is a SOURCE button with all units it could be a (S, SRC, Power) hold the source button down till your kenwood unit powers up ..........if your unit still doesn't work check the fuse on back of kenwood unit should be a 10a fuse (blue) if the fuse is fine put the unit back in dash..........now check the fuse panel on driver side dash with the door open you will see this panel pull it off (some describe the fuse panel as looking like an air vent but its not its a handle to open) now on the panel that you just pulled off there is a fuse diagram on the inside look at it find radio fuse it will be a (blue fuse) located in the top row of fuses check it if blown replace and unit should work.............if this doesn't solve the issue than its a (sneaky) fuse not to many people know about if you pop the hood of your car there is a black plastic panel located just below the battery pins and just above the driver head light (usually black box with yellow writing on it......in this there are mini fuses check all of them do not touch the black relays in there just the small tiny fuses the fuse you will look at should be yellow 20a (this fuse is closest to engine and comes after the abs relay if you look inside the lid you took off it will have fuse locations cant remember which one it is for sure but check them..........now see if your kenwood unit powers up if not the last option is to ground to the black wire from back of kenwood unit to metal frame.............this last part is also done if your unit does power on but your car lights don't work if this happens ground the kenwood unit to the frame of car and open up fuse panel on driver side dash replace the blown fuse for lights or radio (make sure the kenwood unit is grounded to the frame before replacing the fuse in dash panel............if this doesnt help you than i would assume the kenwood deck needs to be repaired by kenwood.......
good luck
hope i was able to help and sorry this list is so long

Kenwood x969 not working


hi,this unit sounds like one with a motorised face. the problem could be with the flat ribbon cable connection between face and main pc board. chech for cracks alond the body of the ribbon especially where it bends alot. Also try resetting the unit if the unit has a reset switch or reset function.

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.
