Question about Kenwood KDC-MPV8025 CD Player
I have a Kenwood KDC-MP825 car stereo. After 3 years of trouble free performance, it is now malfunctioning. When it powers on, the lower panel flips down as normal and begins to operate normally but after 2 seconds, it retracts to a 45 degree angle and the entire panel assembly starts to retract in power off mode then it stops halfway in, powers off and is completely non-responsive. It does respond to resets, but a few power ups after reset, the same problem occurs. I've read about faulty data ribbons and also dirty panel contacts - I hope this is fixable because I love this unit!
My wife experienced the same problem this month, December 2008, after owning the KDC-MP825 for 3.5 years (what's up with that?). It would power on briefly, the panel would move, then after 2 seconds it would shut down. After 15 seconds, it would power again, panel motors whir, then shut down. It would keep doing that while the key is in ignition.
This appeared to have solved the problem:
Hold down BUTTON , press the RESET button (you'll need a ballpen to press between the AUTO and SCRL button).
This was the procedure for getting the receiver out of demonstration mode. Maybe the cold weather here in New Jersey placed the unit into demo mode?
