Question about Car Audio & Video

My Kenwood DPX-501 has no display. Everything else works like a charm. I used it w/o display until I had to buy a new battery and now I need the display so that I can re-set the unit.

    I have read online that the display is not the problem. My display actually came on about a month ago for a couple of days and then went out again.

Hi,

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.

OR

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

Thank You

Thanks!

Kenwood DPX501 Display is off.


These units are all made in China and there really is no "fix"...they simply replace them under warranty or swap out for a refurb. Sorry, you're not alone.
Good Luck

DPX-501 LCD Repair


I got the new display part from the Kenwood supplier on LI, NY but there are dozens of pins on lining both sides of the display, each 1/16" from the other. I don't have confidence in my ability to detach the old and solder the new to the main board without further disaster.

Choices for me now are:

- continue "flying blind" - most likely solution for the moment.
- pay someone to do it - includes removal and being without a head unit for an unspecified time, plus cost.
- replace - I'd like to change brands although it means replacing the Kenwood satellite unit too, so more cost.

This hasn't been a good advertisement for Kenwood. People are impressed by the sound in my car, but not so much by the blank screen, guesswork changing stations etc.

I really like the unit, and the display was great while it worked: exactly as long as the warranty. I can't recommend Kenwood.

DPX-501 Root Menu Help


I emailed Kenwood USA and they gave me the number to an authorized Kenwood service center on the east coast( New Jersey). I sent them the receiver, and within 2 days they sent it back completely fixed. They even fixed an error code I didn't even know wasn't working. Price on the repair will vary depending on the problem. If it is fairly new and still under warranty then there should not be any cost to repair it.

Kenwood dpx-501


I just solved the problem with my kenwood dpx mp 2090U - (looks similar with 501). FL Display with single CD, USB, 2 Din.
I should share this......... as I received the clue from someone that share the same case to me . Thanks to Mr,Nasirbaek from Indonesia,
The problem is at the main board . Dry (bad) soldering occurred. There are more then 5 resistors in series configuration. The resistor is quiet big (1.5mm x 3.5 mm, surface mount type R) about 2,7Ohms.The position is start from near usb port cable and ended to near big transistor (1 x 1.5 cm power transistor). After resoldering check with multitester to make sure that all R are connected in series configuration.
Just open 3 screws to access the main board. 1 at the top case. 2 at cd assembly, then Carefully take out the CD and the CD ribbon cable.
good luck.
