Question about Kenwood KDC-MP535U CD Player

Common blank screen.. but no ribbon cable

Stereo works fine, all buttons work fine, and buttons light up. However, the LCD screen is now blank.. which would lead me to believe it would be the ribbon cable.. but there isn't one. Detachable faceplate.. tried cleaning contacts, no luck. Please help.

    Doesn't appear to be an exact same model in england, but it's almost dead on with the KDC-W6537U on the kenwood electronics UK page. Just a standard LCD screen, no crazy graphics or anything. Receiver is less than a year old.

    My Kenwood is doing the same exact thing. My fluroscent, if it is fluroscent, is not cracked. The display comes on and works fine every so often. If it were cracked, it would not do that. It came on the other day and worked fine for a couple of days.

I don't recognise the radio model number because we use different model numbers in england but if this unit has a fluroscent display that would be my first suspect

    Hi, I had a look at the service manual for the kdc-w6537u and it's got a fluroscent display, if you open up the front panel and have a look at the display you may even find a hairline crack in it as they are quite delicate and prone to failure.

The touch screen display does not work. It turns on but you cannot give the unit a command through the input panel.


Is the lcd screen completely blank? Or does is it just the touch functionality that is not working?

If the screen is blank, though the copier still turns on and appears to function (test it by printing to it,) then you most likely have a failed power inverter board. This board provides the current needed to operate the lcd screen and is a rather common failure. However, if it is just the touch feature that is not working though the screen lights up, then you most likely have a ripped ribbon cable that connects the lcd touch function to the main board on the lcd screen.

Keep my updated.

Toshiba M300 screen turns white blank.


White screen means that your lamp (back light) is working absolutely fine, but you could have a loose connection for the data ribbon cable, which sends the images to the monitor.
Carefully open laptop to reach its lcd, there must be ribbon cable which looks like this: mrc-0069.gif
It is very sensitive so be very careful with that, very gently remove this from the chip and reconnect it.
Hope this helps, Please feel free to ask me any further.

I have a Sony DCR-HC17E. Suddenly LCD screen went blank... What can it be?? can isolve the problem without going to sony?


Most likely, you can not, ribbon cable connecting LCD assembly to main board is broken and it comes as hinge assembly. So, you will have to buy at list the part from sony.

Blank Blue Screen, but buttons still work


I had the same problem and when I took the remote apart the ribbon connecting the lcd screen to the remote controller board was sheared. The remote was dropped and the impact caused two of the traces on the ribbon to tear.

Tohiba l300 completely blank screen


If the screen is always blank, even on startup , before loading Windows, than this is probably an hardware fault.

Try unplugging the laptop and removing the battery at the same time, wait 5 minutes, then put the laptop together. This will drain power and reset the laptop.

If that does not work, and you get no pictuer under any circumstance , then there is a fault.

If the screen is black with no light , then it is either a faulty inverter or a problem on mainboard.

If the screen is all lit, but is blank with no signal, then it is often because of a bad LCD ribbon cable , but can be again the video chipset on the motherboard.

Try connecting to an external monitor, if it works then problem is restricted to LCD/inverter and ribbon cable, if it does not work on external monitor is usually a bad video chipset on motherboard.

Blank screen


You can open the camera and check to see if the LCD ribbon cable is still connected to the main board. If it was dropped they can become dislodged. There are two cables the smaller one is the most sensitive to coming loose. When disconnecting and reconnecting the ribbon cables, make sure you are careful while lifting the tabs that hold the ribbon cables in place they are hinged and will lift up and the ribbon cable will slide out. Note the large ribbon cable feeds through the camera to the front main board. Hope this helps

Dark screen- No images- some shadows horizontally


If you get a blank LCD, dimly lightened by a whitish back light, then the LCD display eis either faulty, badly connected, or the ribbon connector to LCD is defective.
The camera must be taken apart, ribbon cable tested, and eventually replaced and adjusted.
If all contacts on ribbon cable return continuity (cable is fine), then LCD is faulty, and must be replaced.
Althought the job is not too difficult, an user without experience may damage the camera in attempting this repair.
My first suggestion is always taking the unit to a camera shop.
