The antenna wire could be loose.

Just performed a new install on this. Everything powers up and works fine, including the power antenna. Followed set up instructions including selecting speaker output but no sound at all? Radio station...

It sounds like you may have the negative and positive polarity wrong usually to the speakers. I suggest to use black for negative and red for positive so that each speaker is correct. Speaker wire is good but for self installs its a common mistake.

I installed radio everything works except no sound from aftermarket speakers. Radio was hooked up in another car everything worked fine!

Double check your speaker connections. Make sure + goes to plus and - to minus (phase) and make sure all are grounded properly. Is there an amp possibly in line? If so, make sure connections are good there also make sure powered up (it happens to all of us)

I have a Kenwood KDC MP532U. The face plate will not display.

it more than likely has bad solder connections inside the radio on some surface mount resistors usually located on the right front of the radio as it faces you.

KDC-MP919 No display

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.

No sound thru cd player

are you using any separate amp?- if you are the blue wire on the back of the radio is probably turning off when you use a cd(the blue wire is for a power antenna, the blue with a white stripe is for an amp)
