Question about Kenwood eXcelon KDC-X969 CD Player

Kenwood x969 not working

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.

Kdc 448u has power but will not work


If you are sure that the unit has power, try resetting the unit. The reset button is on the left of the plug behind the faceplate.

Kdc-x969, when the unit is tured on the face does not flip down. most buttons turn the unit off but the face flips down instead of up when it shuts off


It very well could be that the internal motor that moves the faceplate is going out or has already gone out. It sounds to me like that could be the problem.

My amp does not work


Did you check to see if its grounded well? Try grounding the amp to the battery, also check fuses. I'm not sure how you hooked it up, but I usually connect the amps directly to the battery with a heavy duty fuse. Also try the remote wire, from your cd player to the amp. Thar are usually 2 different remote wires make shure thair hooked up right, if thats all good and the amp power light isnt on then it sounds like your amp is bad.....

Kenwood KAC-729S keeps blowing fuses. Checked all cables, re-ran power, remote, and ground. All good, still blows them at power-up.


Hello opey_69a,

Here are the troubleshooting steps for fuses blowing.
1) Remove all wiring except ground, power and remote and see if the amp powers up without blowing the fuses. If it does, the problem is in the input cables or speaker wiring.
2) The use of loudspeaker impedances below the recommended minimums will cause the amp to draw excessive current - check.
3) A shorted or grounded RCA cable may cause the fuses to blow - check.
4) If an amplifier fuse blows continually, with only +12 volt, ground and remote leads connected, the amplifier is probably defective, most likely shorted output MOSFET's. In this case the amp needs professional repair or replacement.

Hope this helps.

My amp for my car has a steady blinking power light for about a minute then immediately blows the fuse?


This one should be quite easy to troubleshoot. Start by disconnection every wire on the amp, including the RCA's. Connect the ground, then the 12v power. The light should still be off. Use a jumper from the main 12v in to the remote in. The light should come on. If it doesn't after doing exactly this, or if you still have the same problem- internal amp problem.brian.small@bobstgroup.com

Kenwood KDC -X969 Won't power up


Try pressing the reset button when it slides halfway open. It's a little hidden on the main button panel at the bottom. You'll need a pencil or something to press it. This usually happens to me when it's too cold and I have the panel angle set to full down tilt on my 879.
