Re: my kenwood kdc-mp235

I assume the amp is turning on (lighting up) No audio may be due to Burnt rca ground trace in your kenwood radio. If you have a ohm meter measure continuity from rca's ground terminal to radio chassis. Should be close to zero resistance. If there is no no continuity there are fusible traces on radios main board that burn open at times when to much current is flowing thru rca ground
Just a good possibility , haver seen this happedmany times.
If you need service manual let me know

Selling Receiver

Hello alleycat121,

The KDC-MP235 was replaced with the KDC-MP238 which was replaced with the KDC-MP242, the current model. It's an entry-level receiver that retails new for around $120 with online prices around $75-100.

If the receiver is in good working condition, and you have all of the paperwork and installation accessories, it should be worth about 50% of new cost.

Hope this helps.

Ok I had the kenwood KDC-MP235 installed and...

The front aux input is only capable of accepting audio signals and definitely won't display any track tags.

If you have an iPod, I think with the KCA-iP500 adapter it will display song info on the front as well as allow control from the Kenwood's controls.

As far as the song info on a CD - it should display if you've got a CD with CDTEXT info on it, or if you're playing an MP3/WMA CD. Most regular audio CDs won't be able to display song info.
