Question about Kenwood eXcelon KDC-X879 CD Player
My Kenwood unit about six months ago started having a problem. When the ignition is turned on, the unit will open halfway (flip to a 90 degree angle straight out), then turn off. I can push the power again, it will flip open about 10 more degrees then turn off again. It will keep doing this until I am able to turn it on and keep it at about a 100 degree angle (slightly lower than halfway flipped down). Only then will it stay on. I do this every time the vehicle is used.
Is this a problem with the ribbon? or possibly a short in the connections? I've repaired computers and cars, but never stereo units so its a bit foreign to me.
Thanks for any help.
I have worked on many of these radios and there is a lever that contacts switch to determine position of face this lever wears out and switch does not operate properly causing radio to lose its mind. This is usually the cause of this failure unless flip gears have been damged somehow. contact email@example.com for additional info
