Question about Kenwood DPX-4030 CD / Cassette Player
Very helpful post was able to fix my mates radio, this must be a common fault is that these resistors the board use a paste solder in the assemble process that’s why you get a dry joint, as suggested reflow the joints.

SOURCE: Display on Kenwood Out
I am not sure exactly what solution you are reffering to, but the KDC-MP532U has a problem with the display going out that is the result of heat stressed solder on the main board. The surface mount resistors that are located on the right side near the front of the unit, as you look into it with the display facing you, are the culprits. This is common in about 3 or 4 Kenwood models. These surface mount resistors are on the top of the board, so the board doesn't need to be taken out to fix it. Just the CD mech does. The surface mount resistors just need the solder reflowed, an easy enough job if you know how to solder. They are all lined up connected to each other, I don't remember the reference numbers, but if you can recognize what a surface mount resistor looks like, you should be able to find them very easy.
Thanks for the compliment on the other post, it is appreciated. A good rating would also be appreciated.
Thanks and good luck,
