Re: display

Possibly a ribbon cable problem to the front display from the main circuit board.

Hi there,

I also created a tutorial on fixing faceplates with 2R7 resistors (refer to my tip).

But, your unit will have a different chassis, as the faceplate is also a video display.

First you need to determine if the buttons on the faceplate are operating the various functions. If the buttons are NOT operating, then the faceplate itself (or connection to the main unit) can be considered faulty.

It's highly probable that the RIBBON cable (which connects faceplate to the inside of the unit) may be defective - this is common in some Kenwood units.

Try searching Google or youtube for ribbon cable repairs etc.

Hope this leads you in the right direction.

Display comes on then cuts completely out

Hello. here is the solution...if you still need it..

Open up the face plate... by unscrewing the 4 screws at the back corner of the faceplate

Expose the PCB with the LCD display mounted on it...
towards the right is black tape... remove the tape.
this exposes 2 White LED ( 3 mm) tapering inside the cavity of the LCD display..

If the symptoms are what u say... then the LED's are dead...

Unsolder the bad LED's with new ones.... and then fix everything back

hopefully everything works.. Cheers.

Display stopped working

My Alpine CDA-7842 works fine from a functional point of view but the display (readout) had stopped working. All the lights on the display work but the actual readout is blank. At first the readout would intermittently work now it's completely dead. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
