Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Entry of the code requires that you see whether you should press the left or the right of the Control knob to select the digits once in Security Code Mode. With this in mind, then priority would be re-establishing/repairing the display of the Kenwood DPX501U. To effect this, the unit must then be removed again, opened and voltages supplying the display module checked.

good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Kenwood KDC W6534U - LCD broke (not displaying) head unit works fine otherwise. Now out of warranty. Already had same fault repaired under warranty 2 years ago. How much for replacement facia or...


This is one solution for which the part cost needs to be confirmed from Kenwood. So it is better that you can refer to the service center who had done the work some time ago to give an estimate on the cost. If the fault is a self failure you can ask for some compensation as it has repeated.
Also the LCD pane specific to this model is available only from Kenwood.

Hello espinosa pau and welcome to FixYa. I'm sorry you are having problems with your television but lets see if I can narrow down the problem for you. I'll need you to make sure your television is off then while paying attention to the area where the red light will display turn the television on and count for me how many blinks you see. The television blinks a certain amount of times to inform a technician what the problem may be. Please try what I asked and respond back to me using the comments box and I will get right back to you. Thank you espinosa pau and I await your reply.

The display has failed - Kenwood DPX501U car cd receiver


Same problem as many people who own the kenwood dpx501u head unit. The display has stopped working, pressed the reset button and this has done nothing. Is this a common fault?

DPX-501 LCD Repair


I got the new display part from the Kenwood supplier on LI, NY but there are dozens of pins on lining both sides of the display, each 1/16" from the other. I don't have confidence in my ability to detach the old and solder the new to the main board without further disaster.

Choices for me now are:

- continue "flying blind" - most likely solution for the moment.
- pay someone to do it - includes removal and being without a head unit for an unspecified time, plus cost.
- replace - I'd like to change brands although it means replacing the Kenwood satellite unit too, so more cost.

This hasn't been a good advertisement for Kenwood. People are impressed by the sound in my car, but not so much by the blank screen, guesswork changing stations etc.

I really like the unit, and the display was great while it worked: exactly as long as the warranty. I can't recommend Kenwood.

CD player and everything works fine but there is no display .....


Well, my display went out earlier this week. Took it apart and found out that the LCD on the 501dpx was burnt out. I also found out all we have to do is replace the whole faceplate instead of the system

Kenwood microwave (KEN GJ/SS25) heating doesn't work but grill works


Generally, the most common causes of a failure to heat are:

- bad door switches or door switch mounts
- loose connection at the magnetron
- problem or loose conneciton on the control unit circuit board
- bad magnetron or other high voltage part

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and
