Will not turn on without removing faceplate and putting it back in

My Kendwood KDC-252 CD stereo will not turn on without removing faceplate and then putting the faceplate back in with a little force. The display occassionally stops lighting also and I have to push on faceplate for the display to come back on.

Try cleaning the contacts behind the face and on the sub panel behind the face with either q-tips and rubbing alcohol or a pencil eraser. If you use a pencil eraser, make sure you brush off the debris.

SOURCE: car stereo shuts off

I would try removing the cd player from the dash for that 9 minutes and 30 seconds to see if the cd player has inadequate ventilation, cd player may be getting too hot to function correctly.

SOURCE: kenwood kdc-mp232 not turning on

check your connections. i believe only the standby wire is connected.. or the built in amplifier detects a short on the speaker wires.

SOURCE: Kenwood KDC-X717 - Facplate opens when powered on, stays open. No display.

I've had this problem before. The ribbon cable needs to be replaced. They wear out every few years. Take it in for service. Or do you want to sell it? I need the face plate for mine.

To reset the code do the following:
1) Turn on the car.2) The faceplate rotates out and the CODE - - - - prompt appears.3) Press >>' and Auto keys simultaneously on the faceplate and hold for 4 seconds. (If the faceplate rotates back into the console push on the upper left top edge of the faceplate and it will flip back around. Press the Eject button and then try it again.)4) The screen will still say CODE, but the - - - - will disappear! When this happens press the 5 key on the remote twice and it enters a K on the display on the faceplate. Hit the >>' key on the faceplate.5) Press the 2 key on the remote three times and it enters a C on the display on the faceplate. Hit the >>' key on the faceplate.6) Press the 2 key on the remote once and it enters an A on the display on the faceplate. Hit the >>' key on the faceplate.7) Press the 7 key on the remote twice and it enters an R on the display on the faceplate.

Need to get the security code for Kenwood KDC-608OR


ok I just found this info online and they say it came from the service manual for that stereo so I hope it helps:

You will need a Kenwood RC-410 remote control. This remote works on KDC-519, KDC-X859, KDC-319, KDC-4019, KDC-MP919, KDC-X759, KDC-419, KDC-X459, KDC-MPV619, KDC-MPV7019, KDC-2022, KDC-2022V, KRC-435, KRC-535 and KDC-X959

To reset the code do the following:

1) Turn on the car.
2) The faceplate rotates out and the CODE - - - - prompt appears.
3) Press >>' and Auto keys simultaneously on the faceplate and hold for 4 seconds. (If the faceplate rotates back into the console push on the upper left top edge of the faceplate and it will flip back around. Press the Eject button and then try it again.)
4) The screen will still say CODE, but the - - - - will disappear! When this happens press the 5 key on the remote twice and it enters a K on the display on the faceplate. Hit the >>' key on the faceplate.
5) Press the 2 key on the remote three times and it enters a C on the display on the faceplate. Hit the >>' key on the faceplate.
6) Press the 2 key on the remote once and it enters an A on the display on the faceplate. Hit the >>' key on the faceplate.
7) Press the 7 key on the remote twice and it enters an R on the display on the faceplate. Hit the >>' key on the faceplate.
8) The radio goes into All Off mode and you are set! Hit the SRC button on the faceplate to select CD, Radio, etc.

I have a kenwood kdc-419 car stereo


Use a pencil eraser and try to clean the contacts on the back of the faceplate, if that fails it may have a cold solder joint on the inside of the face plate. May need replacement.

Kendwood KDC-MP528


the easiest option is to replace the complete mechanism otherwise it involves stripping down the mechanism to determine if there are any parts of the mech snapped which can happen as it's mainly plastic
