Kenwood KDC-X891 faceplate not working

I had the unit in another one of my cars and took it out and put it back in the new car I got. I only have the wires for the power ground ignition and left front speaker connected and the faceplate doesn't work. Though it still ejects CDs and slides down. By the way im not using any connecters just taping the wires together if that's any help.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: New KDC-135 has Power but Faceplate won't light up

you shold always twist the end of the wiring together and tape them never use connectors, remove the connectors and twist the wires driectly to each other and tape them wiht electrical tape, the connectors almost always can not deliver the proper voltage..

Did you make sure you have the yellow to a constant connect wire and the red to a turn on?if not this can cause the radio not to work......

you can test wich is wich by turning the key off and putting the yellow to the one you think it is and red to the one you think it is, if you have have it right you will hear the CD player make a click run sound...... if not you will not hear any thing.

SOURCE: I bought a kenwood KDC-BT742U and I'm putting it

as far as i know there is no green with a white stripe on kenwoods, unless you are looking at a blue with white, which is an amplifier remote turn on wire. you should have a yellow wire which needs to be connected to a constant power source, as this wire keeps the radio preset and clock from losing memory.

SOURCE: KDC MP242 faceplate will not

Im not sure if this is gonna fix your problem because im not exactly sure what you mean when you say you ran the player directly to the battery....but if the faceplate is not lighting up then it is possible that you may have not connected some of the wires properly. Some head units come with illumination wires which I believe are usually orange and that could fix the problem of the faceplate not lighting up....I hope that you are not actually running it straight to your battery..like under your hood, straight to your battery. I would imagine that you have purchased the proper wire harness and have matched the wires properly in the dash to the radio harness. If you do not have all of the wires hooked up and the harness plugged in to the radio and ready to go like your gonna put it in the dash to bolt it in then do that. Hook everything up properly with the wires and the harness so its like its ready to be bolted in and then test it...if the faceplate is still not lighting up then you may need to bring it somewhere to have it done professionally or if you are confident you are doing everything properly then it could be a faulty screen. I can add that I have installed many radios and had have lots that I have not needed a use of that orange illumination wire for.....its pretty straight forward just matching the colors and connecting them...but if you have never done it then you should probably take it somewhere, just not sure if you have ever done it before. Hope this was helpful to you.. :) Good Luck!

SOURCE: 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.

Need to get the security code for Kenwood KDC-608OR


ok I just found this info online and they say it came from the service manual for that stereo so I hope it helps:

You will need a Kenwood RC-410 remote control. This remote works on KDC-519, KDC-X859, KDC-319, KDC-4019, KDC-MP919, KDC-X759, KDC-419, KDC-X459, KDC-MPV619, KDC-MPV7019, KDC-2022, KDC-2022V, KRC-435, KRC-535 and KDC-X959

To reset the code do the following:

1) Turn on the car.
2) The faceplate rotates out and the CODE - - - - prompt appears.
3) Press >>' and Auto keys simultaneously on the faceplate and hold for 4 seconds. (If the faceplate rotates back into the console push on the upper left top edge of the faceplate and it will flip back around. Press the Eject button and then try it again.)
4) The screen will still say CODE, but the - - - - will disappear! When this happens press the 5 key on the remote twice and it enters a K on the display on the faceplate. Hit the >>' key on the faceplate.
5) Press the 2 key on the remote three times and it enters a C on the display on the faceplate. Hit the >>' key on the faceplate.
6) Press the 2 key on the remote once and it enters an A on the display on the faceplate. Hit the >>' key on the faceplate.
7) Press the 7 key on the remote twice and it enters an R on the display on the faceplate. Hit the >>' key on the faceplate.
8) The radio goes into All Off mode and you are set! Hit the SRC button on the faceplate to select CD, Radio, etc.

Display screen not working


Sounds like you might have a bad connection where the faceplate connects to the unit, or the faceplate is bad.

Kenwood KDC-X717 - Facplate opens when powered on, stays open. No display.


I've had this problem before. The ribbon cable needs to be replaced. They wear out every few years. Take it in for service. Or do you want to sell it? I need the face plate for mine.

Hi bacbeats,

You nered to clean the contacts on the main unit and the faceplate, evidently you have contamination keeping the power from getting from the main head unit to the faceplate.
