Question about Kenwood KDC-X817 CD Player

Problem with Kenwood x817 in my '95 audi A6

A couple of days ago my kenwood KDC-x817 car stereo went on the fritz. It began to tilt open as if to insert or eject a CD, but it wont accept
a disc and won't return to normal position. It does this automatically without any action on my part. When I remove the face plate the carrier/
docking plate tilts back to normal operating postion. When I reinstall the
face plate 5-10 seconds later it tilts to cd insert postion but won't accept a disc.

When the problem first started the faceplate would light up and the reset button worked. The stereo would work until I shut the car off.
Upon restarting the car I have to reset again. Now nothing happens when I press the reset.

It's old enough that this model is no longer sold. I have found a couple
of new/used faceplates online. Is the problem likely to be the faceplate
or something in the main part of the unit?

Security Code for Protect mode


Turn on the car so the radio is flashing "Protect." Look on the front / removable face of the stereo. On it you will find a small round hole - that's a reset button. Find a small paper clip, unfold the clip and stick it gently into the hole. The "Protect" will stop flashing, and Kenwood will be displayed. Unfortunately all your settings/presets will be gone, but at least the stereo is working again!
