Faceplate not working

A few weeks ago I was changing the radio station on my faceplate and it began to freeze up. It would not let me switch between the stations. Then it would not let me adjust the volume. So I turned it off hoping it would just reset but it would not turn back on. I tried the reset button but that didn't do anything either. So right now I cannot turn the stereo on at all. The faceplate still has some scrolling text and the clock and displays Sony so it must have power. If you pop a CD in it will play but you cannot adjust the song, volume etc. anything with the faceplate. I'm not sure if I should try replacing the faceplate or if it something more than that.

    I am having the exact same problem. The writing is scrolloing on the display but none of the buttons are working. I am currently listening to CD's at the same volume and to eject I have to remove the face plate and press the re set button.

It sounds to me like you may have a bad volume control switch. Unless you are good at unsoldering and soldering, I would suggest you have it repaired by a professional. Either that or see if you can find a replacement face at a pawnshop or something like that.

Kdc-x993 - power to head, but no display when face is installed. the cd eject button is blinking but when i install the face, the display will not come up.


you dont have power to the ignition wire on the radio(red wire) the yellow wire should have constant power(12 volt) check your radio fuse in the fuse block on the car or on the red wire itself

Jensen MP5720 radio/faceplate connector is broken or missing spring


I was always afraid this might happen to me so I never removed the faceplate from the radio. This strategy worked fine for two years until two weeks ago. I didn't lock my car because of the freezing rain and somebody stole my faceplate and remote. Anyway I ordered a replacement radio from Amazon last week so I don't have rewire a new one. The replacement cost me $100. I don't really need the rest of the radio so make an offer, my email is cs1713@sbcglobal.net

Wont change channels


First, try resetting the faceplate CPU by shorting the proper pins on the faceplate to radio connector on the back of the faceplate with a piece of wire... They are marked on the connector, if this fixes it for you, enjoy!

If that doesn't work, then remove the back cover of the faceplate and check the faceplate connector itself for bad solder joints. As a matter of fact, check the entire radio for bad solder joints before looking any further.

I bought one of these radios a short time ago; Everything worked except for LSB.

I was told by the radio shop I bought it from that I'd have to wait until June to get it fixed, so I opened it up myself to see if it was something easy to find/fix, since I felt that if it was anything major it wouldn't be able to get AM or USB either.



In my case, I found bad solder joints on the faceplate connectors and a bad solder joint on one of transistors attached to the heatsink.

Once I fixed those two things, it's been a great little radio.

Be sure to reset the faeplate after resoldering and assembling, to clear any errors from the CPU.

Bad face plate!


It may be the flexible connector link connecting to the drop down faceplate.
