Electronics are especially vulnerable to any kind of water damage or liquid spills. It seems your hideaway unit has suffered water damage and this has caused the internal circuits to short. You may have blown resistors or capacitors or other damage and the unit will need to be checked with proper electronic testing equipment to diagnose the exact fault.

Unfortunatey even a small amount of liquid is sufficient to cause this type of damage as the circuitry in these units is extremely complex and vulnerable to damage in this situation.

You might try drying the unit under light heat e.g sit the unit on a shelf above a radiator for a day or two and this may help - there is no guarantee with this as the damage to the circuits may already be done. It is not adviseable to dry circuits under direct heat like a hairdryer as direct heat usually ends up causing more damage.

If this fails to have any effect I would suggest that first you get an estimate for repair - depending on the component effected it may still be repairable at a reasonable cost. If the cost for repair is high it is best to replace the unit.

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate my answer. Many Thanks.

What equals 48 ounces??

Hi Yesenia

There are a couple of possible answers, depending on whether you're talking about liquid ounces, or weight ounces.

For liquids, there are 8 fluid ounces in a kitchen '1 Cup' measuring cup. That means 48 fluid ounces are the same as 6 cups, 3 pints (2 cups per pint) , or 1-1/2 quarts (two pints per quart).

For weight, there are 16 ounces in a pound. (One fluid ounce of water also weighs one weight ounce, which is the basis of the adage 'A pint's a pound, the world around', since a pint is 16 fluid ounces, and 16 fluid ounces of water, or near-water like some beer, will then weigh a pound' ).. Anyhow, in this case, 16 goes 3 times into 48 ounces, so it will weigh 3 pounds.

For metric, 2.2 pounds per kilogram, or 29.5735 milliliters per fluid ounce.

Conversion ounces grams

That depends on what you mean by "ounce."

One troy ounce is about 31.1 grams, so one gram is about 0.032 troy ounces.

One English ounce is about 28.3 grams, so one gram is about 0.035 English ounces.

Hideaway brain unit on my kenwood KVT-617 doesn't work

My KVT-617 display unit was stolen out of my dash, but they neglected to snag the items under the rear seat: the "brain" hideaway unit, the HD radio receiver, the 10 disc CD changer, the navigation unit, and the powered subwoofer.
Everything was replaced via the insurance except the sub because the new system was not compatible with the old components. Make me an offer on the items you want!
