Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

The radio in our 2001 Pontiac Montana has a broken display. It is not a problem with the backlights. The little screen is cracked. I am wondering if this led screen is available anywhere. I have a lot of electronic experience and could easily install it. Or do I have to go the route of a new radio? Thanks Stan Grimm

Personally, I would go with a new radio...i'm not that familiar with this particular radio but unless it is something really special I wouldn't bother, in my opinion it wouldn't be worth the money and time of tearing it apart to change the screen. Another route you could go is checking ebay, or a local scrap yard for another factory one or ultimatly changing to an aftermarket. It is up to you. Good luck.

Digital display on onkyo tx-sv70pro not working radio plays ok.

Yes...the sun would have harm this but it would take a lot of sun. I am betting your display is just burned out. If you look hard enough you can find a replacement for the display. It is a plug and play board.

Display has gone blank so cannot tune. can this be solved without going to a repair shop? technila dab 206 digital radio

You are experiencing a backlight failure. A repair shop can repair the item (grain of wheat lamp).

Once the backlight is repaired, you will see the characters on your screen.

Radio doesn't work

Hi ver4

Just a quick question, have all the antenna connections for the tuner been re-established? If the aerials are connected, the tuner module may have broken away from the printed circuit board or a crack has occurred to same. I expect that if it is a cracked PCB, then repairs should not cost more that $80-100.
Good Luck

Hi again,

For some reason, I could no longer post a response back at the Live Session/Chat. Our apologies for any inconvenience.

Nonetheless, with your indulgence I will continue posting here.

There would be two possible reasons why there would be no video on a Clarion VRX775VD.

the first would be the video interface which simply is like the video card of your computer. This rarely go bad but if suspected would require that the unit be removed from the vehicle's dash and repair works carried out on a workbench.

The second would be the backlight. You can actually verify this by playing a video DVD/VCD preferably at night and with a flashlight, shine a light on the screen. If you see semblance of the movie, then you have just confirmed it to be a bachlight issue.

Backlight could then further be wither the CCF lamps (cold cathode florescent) or the inverter. The CCF lamps are similar to the long thin lamps used in laptop displays. The inverter on the other hand is a PCB that houses the component that converts your car's 12VDC into a high voltage high frequency power that supplies the CCF.

All of course require the services of a qualified professional. If you are considering a DIY (do-it-yourself), pls post back.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back as requested, how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Kenwood KDC-MP832U display not working

I had this problem! It was the Cars Battery. Kenwoods unit's fade or go completely blank when there is little power to power the stereo. Try charging your battery or grabing a new one from a scrappy! I was all over the net looking for help but finally sorted it!

P.S. My younger brother had to do the exact thing and it worked for him as well!!!

I have a Kenwood KDC-MP438U and I need the serial number. Is there a way to have this displayed on the stereo screen so I do not have to remove the stereo?

Sorry, there is nothing like that available on any car stereos I have ever repaired. I have been repairing many different aftermarket brands for over 17 years.

The Kenwood serial number is on the bottom of the stereo on a sticker along with the model number.

You can pull the radio very easy, take the face and the trim ring off. Then use something very slim and stiff that will fit between the radio and the cage that holds the radio, your radio should have come with 2 metal strips about 6 inches long that are used for pulling the radio. Push those metal strips in along the sides of the radio but inside the cage, and when they are in far enough you can pull the radio out of the cage that holds it. You can pull it out about a little over half way and see the serial number on the bottom.

I hope this helps you pull the radio a little easier, since there is no way to get the radio to display the serial number on the face.
