Question about Car Audio & Video
Most probably it sounds like that the LCD on the 501dpx was burnt out. I also found out all we have to do is replace the whole faceplate instead of the system.
The part number for the replacement front panel (not the cd unit) A64-3814-02. Cost will be around $50 on Kenwood's part distributor websites.
All you have to do is unscrew top metal panel off and unscrew one of the bottom screw on the left side to pop off the panel display.
I found the faceplate at Kenwood parts distributor http://www.eastcoasttransistor.com, however their online catalog gave the following product description:
"PLASTIC FRONT PANEL DPX501 (DOES NOT INCLUDE LCD DISPLAY ,IF YOU NEED THE DISPLAY THE PART # IS 3-BT-235INK) "
The display part costs $31 plus shipping vs. $50 for the faceplate.
resolder dry joints on R43,44,46,47,48,49,50,51,55,57 right hand side of main pcb
display will not be faulty

everyone who has this problem needs to voice it to Kenwood USA. Icalled them at their toll-free number and they said they never heard ofthis problem on the DPX501
