Question about Phase Linear UMP8015 CD Player/Receiver With Detachable Face

1 Answer

Faceplate had this installed and i've got a bad skip in the cd, contacted seller and was told to send back headunit.  I assume the headunit is the same thing as the faceplate, which is supposed to be detachable, but I see no release buttons or anyway to get it off.   Help!!

My faceplate does not show display on my Kenwood kdc-mp632u. The lights work and the head unit in general plays the radio and cd's ect. now I have read somewhere that there are resistors inside so that...

I had the same problem and I resoldered the resistors on the board inside the stereo and it worked. Unscrew and remove the top cover and the CD slot. There are 10 of them located on the lower right side of the board. Good luck.

Faceplate Broken, would like to get a different type

I have a faceplate for this model that I'm trying to sell.  As we speak, I'm putting it on craigslist and ebay.
I don't have the actual CD player, all I have is the faceplate.  Email me if you want to buy it.

Faceplate will not open

Perhaps something is not installed correctly physically. Sometimes if something is a little twisted the way the unit is installed it will keep it from opening properly. Try moving the unit slightly and see if that helps.

RE:Sony CDX-F5510X

The easiest thing to try is to clean all of the electrical contacts between the faceplate and the HU with rubbing alcohol. Also, play around with pressing on different points on the faceplate while pushing buttons. See if any point that you press causes the issue to happen more/less often. It may be as simple as a contact that is barely touching its mate.

Beyond that, it's possible the faceplate is starting to go south, in which case a new faceplate may be in order. Unfortunately, I didn't see any for sale on eBay, but you might look around.

It sounds like a bad connection between the faceplate and the unit. Have look at the way the faceplate connector makes contact with the connector. You may be able to bend something to make it make a stronger connection. Also check that the contacts are not dull or dirty.

Stolen faceplate

mine was stolen too. I thin you need to contact the seller or manufacturer to find out. If it is the same model number as it is on the main cd player part then I think it can work. But suggest you to contact the manufacturer.

Faceplate won't connect


There are possibly three (3) ways of making sure that there is contact between the faceplate and the unit's frontend:
1. normally, what it would take would be cleaning thoroughly and a light application of WD40 to the mating contacts;
2. slightly bend out the elbow type pins. This should be done carefully so as not to overdo and bend it out of place; or
3. solder a thin layer of soldering lead on top of the flat contact points to increase the contact height. Light/Low heat soldering iron must be use to prevent burning the plastic surroundings.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FIXYA.

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
