If you have the remote control for the unit, or can buy one then you can reset the code. Just ask me how...

IF YOU DID NOT PRESS THE RESET BUTTON NEX TO THE USB PLUG, DO IT. IT WILL REINITIATE THE DEVICE TO THE FACTORY; YOU WILL HAVE TO ADJUST THE CLOCK.
I DID BECAUSE IT WAS WORKING AT FIRST.( PAGE 3 OF THE MANUAL)

Yes, the problem is inside the main unit. I have fixed hundreds of these radios over the years. 
The solder on these resistors get heat stressed and stop conducting properly. They just need a tiny little touch of solder. 
With the radio in front of you and the face is facing you, take the top off and remove the CD mech. The CD mech can just be set over to the left a little and the ribbon cable to it can stay connected. Just move it out of the way gently. You will see a series of resistors in the right front corner area of the main board on top. They have 2R7 printed on them and there are quiite a few, all in that main area. Just resolder them and put it all back together again and the display will work normal.

There is no display on the faceplate. The faceplate is stuck in the CD eject position. If I remove the faceplate the mechanism rotates to the position where the controls would be visible but when I attach...


I would try cleaning the connectors on the face plate with an pencil eraser and on the unit itself with a very fine sand paper. And make sure you get rid of any dust after cleaning before putting the face plate back on.
Please leave me a good feedback.
Thanks

Unable to remove faceplate or eject cd on kenwood


remove the to of the unit, then the two in the actual cd player, pull out cd player, there will be two more screws,these hold the faceplate assembly in place, remove them. This will allow you to pull a small plastic hook down to let the face plate slide out. then remove the face plate from it's holder, slide it out. Remove the four screws on the back of the faceplate inside the there is a very small piece of plastic that has a hole at one end and squared at the other. This is the problem causing piece. I suggest super gluing this piece where it attaches to the inside of the faceplate. This should fix the problem.

Check your Ground Wire inside the Truck and Check the Illumination Wire. I Think on Kenwood the Illumination Wire goes with the Power Wire. If they still will not work, You might want to get a Wiring Harness from Schoche.com Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

Face plate on KDC-MP528 kenwood deck wont open


if you have checked all of your wiring and fuses and already tried hitting the reset button you should first remove the faceplate and check the contacts on the main unit and the back of the faceplate. if they are dirty clean them (with power off) with contact cleaner or a small eraser. if your lucky that will fix the problem but most likely you have a bad ribbon cable. this cable attaches the faceplate contacts to the main unit and flexes as the face tilts. after time these cables get small cracks that may not be visible. you can usualy buy the part from a place like pacparts.com and replace it to solve your problem.

Kenwood kdc-322 faceplate problem?


I found my Kenwood KDC322 faceplate doing the same thing(cutting out) I cleaned the contact points on this 'ribbon' behind the faceplate by rubbing the discoloration off with a pencil eraser. The lights have not cut out again.

Kenwood KDC-715s problem.


the kenwoods with the motorized face platesdevelop one problem with time. the flexable ribbon cable between the main unit & the face plate. as the face open & closes, over time wares out the cable. problem consists of face plate not opening/closing, display missing & and/or some or all buttons not working. note these can also be intermittent problems. typically the part number is located on the cable itself on the side where it pluggs into the main board. since you have a service manual, you should verify it in the manual. good luck.
