Question about Kenwood eXcelon KDC-X969 CD Player
All fuses are good. gets power on both remote and steady. good ground. with the face off i see the security light flash. all seems to work at first, the face starts to flip but it will just go to a flat horizontal position for a second and then close. kenwood x969 has one of those stealth faces so i cant see if theres any kind of error codes it just closes and does nothing after that. it was working fine had it for a year or two. this just started one morning and has been a problem since. went back to my stock radio, works fine. the problem is somewhere in the kenwood. can it be the face? something with the contacts? or just completely blown?? anyone know how i can trouble shoot this problem to see what the problem is? or have any ideas? ive been installing systems for 5 years now, unprofessionally, but i know plenty as far as installation goes. normal problems i can fix. this one not so much
Hi,this unit sounds like one with a motorised face. the problem could be with the flat ribbon cable connection between face and main pc board. chech for cracks alond the body of the ribbon especially where it bends alot. Also try resetting the unit if the unit has a reset switch or reset function.
