Question about Kenwood DPX-501 CD Player
My DPX 501 Kenwood has stopped showing a display ... It still works great but the display shows nothing at all. I have done a reset and pulled the unit and still nothing .. ???? Any thoughts ????
Well, my display went out earlier this week. Took it apart and found out that the LCD on the 501dpx was burnt out. I also found out all we have to do is replace the whole faceplate instead of the system

So my display has been out for right around a year now...well today it came back on!
I have no idea why.
I started using the CD player recently...
I fiddled with the menu today ie. audio settings and walaa it came on.
I've used the menu before this so not sure what happened.
Hopefully it stays on.

My unit is just over two years old and started acting up this summer. Seemed to be temperature related, display would work when unit warmed up. This fall unit display was out for three straight weeks, even if warm. Fiddling with the dimmer switch for the instrument lights on a trip a couple weeks ago and the display resumed working. Reading the manual to ID the dimmer wire to maybe cut it I read that the dimmer function can be turned off using the menu which I did. Display has now worked for two weeks in warm and cool weather.

I also have this problem and I was excited to see a solution here. I found the faceplate at Kenwood parts distributor http://www.eastcoasttransistor.com, however their online catalog gave the following product description:
"PLASTIC FRONT PANEL DPX501 (DOES NOT INCLUDE LCD DISPLAY ,IF YOU NEED THE DISPLAY THE PART # IS 3-BT-235INK) "
The display part costs $31 plus shipping vs. $50 for the faceplate. I ordered the display and will attempt repair within two weeks. I'll try to remember to post my result here.

Maybe the ribbon needs replacing if it has one otherwise a fault with the fascia
