Question about Kenwood Car Audio & Video
My Kenwood car stereo CD player will not flip back into place. Everytime I put the face plate back on it will not flip back into place. The stereo also flips all the way around when the car shuts off for anti-theft, however this does not occur either. What should I do? It seems that the flipping mechanism is doing the opposite it should be doing. Thanks Its a Kenwood Excelon KDC-X715

Alot, of the radios have a common problem with the connection from the radio's detachable face. What happens is corrosion builds up on the connectors between the pin and the connector itself. Sometimes you can clean it off with a small file. Also, some KENWOODS with the motorized face are known to have a problem with the ribbon cable connecting the face plate to the main board. The last time I repaired one I called KENWOOD and aquired the cable for about 65 dollars, what the problem is, is the cable is wrapped around a plastic white spindel with a high tension spring and places alot of pressure on the cable from the wear and tear of the face opening and it will cause strange problems such as: turning on and off, some buttons working while others don't, and the display partially turning on and off.

I have worked on many of these radios and there is a lever that contacts switch to determine position of face this lever wears out and switch does not operate properly causing radio to lose its mind. This is usually the cause of this failure unless flip gears have been damged somehow. contact firstname.lastname@example.org for additional info
