Kenwood KDC-MP825 car stereo problem

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!

    I've got the same problem after about 3.5 years. Its start time coincided with the beginning of the cold winter weather toward the end of 2007 and seems to **** out in the morning more frequently after a cold night. Mine starts with the ignition and opens the faceplate like it should but then powers off and just sits there, open. It will eventually respond to multiple pressings (long and short) of the standby button but the length of time to get it working is hit or miss and very annoying.
    I haven't had the opportunity to take it out, check the connections and put it back in but I'm hoping this is fixable because like everyone else says, it has been a very nice head unit.

    same problem here...I think it has something to do with a sensor and the opening motor as mine started doing this after someone accidently knocked the flip-out panel pretty hard.

    my kenwood has done the same thing at around the same time (3.5 year mark). Does anyone have the answer to how to fix it?

    Looks like I will have to join this same reason why everyone's here.
    I've had the unit installed and working in 3 different cars. Now the deck acts up as the description above. This took place in my gf's car. I have taken out the cd player and inspected all connections without any problem. So my wild guess was probably the face plate was moved out of it's ribbon sensor's limitation. It would be nice to be able to reset the ribbon back to the correct place, which will most likely fix the shutoff of the unit when it senses the faceplate is being stopped from opening.

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 [5], 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?

When i power it on it shuts off i got a kenwood kdc-mp825


Disconnect all of your speaker leads at the head unit, make sure none are touching, then power it back on. If it still cuts out, check your ground, if it doesn't, re-connect speakers one by one and test power again. It will either cut out when you get to a speaker or wire that's shorted, or work just fine. it's protecting itself from damage by cutting off when speakers are either bad or have shorted wiring. Most common shorted wiring happens on door speakers at the hinge. If it continues to cut off without speakers connected and you have a good ground, the unit needs service. If it still plays and you find the speaker or wire that's causing the problem, disconnect the wire at the speaker and test again, if it works, replace the speaker, if it doesn't, replace the wire. Hope this helps

Unlock code


This is the only way to clear the code. You must have the remote to do this, it will not work without the remote. I work at an authorized Kenwood service center and tell you for certain that this is the only way it can be done. If you do not have a remote, you will either need to buy one or borrow one from somebody else who has a Kenwood radio. Most all Kenwood car stereo remotes will work, it does not need to be from the same model number but it must be a Kenwood car stereo remote. If you can not find a remote for this then you will need to take the radio to an authorized Kenwood service center and they will usually do it for a small fee.

The first step is the only part of this procedure that you do not use the remote.

1. During code request mode, press the Track UP key for at
least 3 seconds while holding down the AUTO key. (– – – –
will disappear)
2. Enter, “KCAR” with the remote controller as described below.
• Press the remote controller 5 key twice, and press the Track
Up key. (Enters a “K” )
• Press the remote controller 2 key three times, and press
the Track Up key. (Enters a “C” )
• Press the remote controller 2 key once, and press the Track
Up key. (Enters an “A” )
• Press the remote controller 7 key twice, and press the Track
Up key. (Enters an “R” )
3. Security function is canceled and unit sets to All-Off mode.
4. Code request mode appears if a mistake was made in entering
the numbers.

Kenwood kdc-mp 825


it's a Canadian Kenwood.
http://inform3.kenwoodusa.com/manuals/KDC-MPV8025.pdf
I had the 925 purchased from Ebay, but I sold the car with it.
it's probably the ribbon wire broken between the face and the unit. I know that on Ebay some they use to offer a repair for these type of units.
