Replacing the Front ribbon/cable

I need to replace the cable running to the face plate. I saw skill level five is needed (Is this out of ten?). Is there a place to read/see how to replace this? Mark

    I was looking for directions on how to take the deck apart. The ribbon wraps around a component, and I do not know what to take off to get at that piece.

It's not that hard, if you can find the ribbon cable online or from the manufacturer you've done the hardest part already.... just take the deck apart, disconnect the old ribbon cable from the main board, and practice reconnecting it first, then connect the new one. If you're good at tinkering and taking things apart it should be no trouble at all. Good luck!!

I replaced the ribbon cable on my Frigidaire refrigerator and the ice auger for the ice continue to run and water will not dispense when water dispenser is activated. I want to correctly replace the r


Hey friend, thank you for your inquiry!

From my understanding you were replacing the water dispenser on your Frigidaire refrigerator and the ribbon cable disconnected. I would suggest a generic search online for any additional information regarding the ribbon cable. I was unable to locate that information for you. Additionally, if you continue to have problems I would consult with a professional technician for proper attachment of the cable. Best of luck! -Matt

Sony receivers in this series do a series of tests on the integrity of the audio path before allowing voltage to be applied to the output transistors.
First make sure the speaker selector is set to "off". Test it again. If it still does the same thing then:
If you are comfortable removing the cover, take out the four side screws and the screws on the rear top of the cover. Look at the volume control and make sure the ribbon cable is firmly inserted in to the slot at the back of the control. The next part is a little more involved. There are two ribbon cables on the circuit board on the front of the face plate. One is close to the front, the other is not. You can remove the face plate and check thoes cables, but you must remove the screws from the bottom of the face plate and the one screw holding the volume control in place.
If this is all in place, I recommend sending it in to Sony for repair.

Ribbon cable broken and now cannot open the face plate


You need to take the unit apart to fix the cable since the other end of it plugs into the board inside, it's pretty easy to take apart though. Good luck!

Replacing the facepale


that hole on that model is for a locking screw, the locking screw is installed to minimize theft and for other precautions. If the face plate is having any odd reactions its normally do to the flex cable. The best sign for a dying or dead flex cable is at the joint. The joint can be viewed at the point when you remove the face plate. Immediately after pulling the face plate off look behind the pivoting frame at the orange colored ribbon, you should only be able to see a small portion of it. If there is any sign of a yellowy residue its a sign that the protective covering of the ribbon is deteriorating. A bad flex cable is everything on the moving face plates.

Power to stereo none to unit


There is a ribbon cable that goes from the display to the main board of the radio that may be bad, if you have everything connected properly and all you get is the red led, this is a possibility. No way for anybody to know if you have it wired wrong if they can not look at it themself.

The red wire is for power when the key is on, the yellow wire should get power all the time, the black wire is ground.

If you have those correct, the radio should at least turn on. If you have these right, you may need a new ribbon cable. The connector that interfaces with the detachable face must also be taken off the old ribbon cable and put on the new one, or get a new connector and just replace it. The ribbon cable does not come with that connector. It is soldered on the ribbon cable, so if you are not very good with a soldering iron, you should have a service center do it for you.

Let me know if you want the part number for the ribbon cable and/or connector, I can get those for you.

I can not guarantee that the ribbon cable is the problem, or that it is the only problem, but it is the most likely problem with that model number of Kenwood. I have repaired many of them, so I have a good idea what causes most of the problems, but I have seen times when the usual suspect is not the problem and something else like the LCD in the face is bad, or the IC that controls the display is bad. Even a voltage regulator on the main board of the radio can be at fault as well. There are probably about 10 different things that can cause that one problem, having an experienced technician is always the best way to determan the problem with certainty.

Let me know if I can be any more help for you.

lift up & out on the drip tray (it will come out) after removing it you will see 3 screw. unscrew the screws & lift the face plate of the despenser & it will come off. Be careful though. There is a ribbon wire connected to the back of the face plate. make sure to dissconect the ribbon wire from the control board not the back of the face plate (its alot harder to reconnect to the face plate & pretty simle to reconnect to the control board).

Face Plate


If this is a "flip face" type of display then you may have a broken lead in the ribbon cable that connects to the main board from the flip face. This is a very common problem. You'll need to replace that ribbon cable.
