Kenwood KRC-x858 stuck halfway between closed and open

I have a KRC-X858 in my car, and at the moment its stuck between the closed and open positions. the only thing that ive found is that when i remove the display/faceplate that it closes back up only to return to the half-open/half-closed position when i reinsert it.

Have the exact same problem. I called the Kenwood tech line and the tech reported that the ribbon cableKenwood KRC-x858 stuck halfway between closed and  - 2_bing.gif is probably broke. It is the flex cable between the head unit and the rotating face plate. He said it's not an expensive fix but we would need to mail it to a service center if you're like me and not near one. I just replaced mine with a new unit. It was about time anyways.

Kenwood KRC 535 - Faceplate stops halfway when turning off unit. When unit on it will play music, but nothing lights up so you don't know what you're listening to. Also cannot change station. ...


There is a fine ribbon cable that links both the main unit and the face plate. Due to the constant movement of opening and closing some of the conductive tracks develop cracks. That is the reason why when it closes half way it looses contact and the motor stops turning. The display illumination track must have completely broken.
You will need professional help to replace it because its a little complicated to access this ribbon cable.Will cost you about 15$ plus labor.
