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.

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

Bad face plate!

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

Faceplate not responding / acting very weirdly

Sounds like a bad connection with the faceplate and the multi connector that the faceplate mates with when closed. check for dirt and bent pins on both connectors. Luck
