Question about Kenwood KDC -X815
(kdc-x815 kenwood car cd plyr) when I turn on key deck faceplate will "suppose to" flip around and turn on in last state, when I shut off key it is "suppose to" flip down for 5 sec. and alow me to either remove faceplate or if dont flips backwards to hide faceplate.
After 8 yrs of flawless performance now when i turn on key it flips around but then the display and buttons are dead and after 5 to10 sec. it flips down waiting for me to remove the faceplate and stays there?

It has a defective ribbon cable between the face and the motherboard. This is a common repair, but must be done by a repair shop. My shop charges around $60-70 for parts and labor for that repair, to give you a ballpark of what to expect.

SOURCE: Faceplate won't close
Alot, of the radios have a common problem with the connection from the radio's detachable face. What happens is corrosion builds up on the connectors between the pin and the connector itself. Sometimes you can clean it off with a small file. Also, some KENWOODS with the motorized face are known to have a problem with the ribbon cable connecting the face plate to the main board. The last time I repaired one I called KENWOOD and aquired the cable for about 65 dollars, what the problem is, is the cable is wrapped around a plastic white spindel with a high tension spring and places alot of pressure on the cable from the wear and tear of the face opening and it will cause strange problems such as: turning on and off, some buttons working while others don't, the display partially turning on and off, and the face to act peculiar and flip down halfway. In addition, sometimes the face open and close switches go bad, but I've never had to replace them yet. .

I have the exact same problem. I called the tech line and the tech reported that the ribbon cable is probably broke. It is the flex cable between the head unit and the rotating face plate. He said it's not an expensive fix but we would need to mail it to a service center if you're like me and not near one. I just replaced mine with a new unit. It was about time anyways.
