Question about Kenwood KDC-7024 CD Player

1 Answer

My Kenwood KDC-7024 has just started playing up - as soon as you turn on the ignition, the face panel comes down, flicks on for all of 2 - 3 seconds and then closes, it then keeps doing this repeatedly until you turn the ignition off - have disconnected the whole unit and reconnected but it still does the same thing, any ideas?

    Hi, I have exactly the same problem. It powers up, then powers off and continues doing this over and over. I saw the solution that was posted; how would you fix the cable?



    Thanks, Paul

It's possible the flexible PCB (more of a cable, really) that connects the faceplate to the main unit has cracks in the conductors. This has been an issue with some of the older Kenwood HUs that have the MASK motorized faceplate. The flex-cable gets bent and pinched enough over the years that it eventually cracks the copper.

Beginning on the bottom of page 34 in the KDC-7024 manual - you'll find the details concerning the security code. if you do not recall your security code, you will probably need to contact Kenwood Car Entertainment Support for additional help.

I hope this is the info you're looking for & good luck!

I had the 925 purchased from Ebay, but I sold the car with it.
it's probably the ribbon wire broken between the face and the unit. I know that on Ebay some they use to offer a repair for these type of units.

Kenwood KDC-MP825 car stereo problem


My wife experienced the same problem this month, December 2008, after owning the KDC-MP825 for 3.5 years (what's up with that?). It would power on briefly, the panel would move, then after 2 seconds it would shut down. After 15 seconds, it would power again, panel motors whir, then shut down. It would keep doing that while the key is in ignition.

This appeared to have solved the problem:
Hold down BUTTON [5], press the RESET button (you'll need a ballpen to press between the AUTO and SCRL button).

This was the procedure for getting the receiver out of demonstration mode. Maybe the cold weather here in New Jersey placed the unit into demo mode?

Some flip face stereos use a tiny micro switch to tell the onboard computer when the face is down or up and sometimes it uses the same switch for both positions sensing. It could be this switch is not working properly (dirty contacts, broken, bad wire, mis-aligned, etc.) and that is causing the problem. Good luck.
