Display on a Kenwood KDC-MP532U radio

The display on our car radio one day didn't show up. We thought the display was dead, but sometimes when you get in to drive it lights up just fine. It just seems to depend on the day. Nothing else seems to be effected, just the display. Is this a common problem? Any thoughts?

you could have blow a fuse on radio or in fuse panel. check fuse panel in your car or truck for a radio fuse to see if it is blown .

this is what it sounds like to me you blew the factory fuse use a digital volt meter to see by chance to see if you get 12 volts on both side of radio fuse when ignition is on ....

I have a Kenwood KDC MP532U. The face plate will not display.


it more than likely has bad solder connections inside the radio on some surface mount resistors usually located on the right front of the radio as it faces you.

Display on Kenwood Out


I am not sure exactly what solution you are reffering to, but the KDC-MP532U has a problem with the display going out that is the result of heat stressed solder on the main board. The surface mount resistors that are located on the right side near the front of the unit, as you look into it with the display facing you, are the culprits. This is common in about 3 or 4 Kenwood models. These surface mount resistors are on the top of the board, so the board doesn't need to be taken out to fix it. Just the CD mech does. The surface mount resistors just need the solder reflowed, an easy enough job if you know how to solder. They are all lined up connected to each other, I don't remember the reference numbers, but if you can recognize what a surface mount resistor looks like, you should be able to find them very easy.

Thanks for the compliment on the other post, it is appreciated. A good rating would also be appreciated.

Thanks and good luck,

Dave

No display on my kenwood kdc-mp532u


I read up on this and saw Tech48's post related to a different model. He's the one who deserves the credit. I'm just the rookie who has the soldering iron. However, here's a picture of the 5 resistors that you need to reflow and "top up"

My model is the KDC-MP532U (same as the 532, but with the USB option).

Here's the overall view. The CD-Player is standing on its edge at the bottom. The resistors are on the bottom right by the brass screw post.

...and here's a close up of the board and the resistors....

Hope it helps. Thanks Tech48!!!! It's like I've got a new stereo!!
