This is the part number for the only ribbon cable that has micro switches on it:


You can find it on ebay at this url:

Please give me a "fixya" if it helps you.
Those micro switches detect how far the display moves in and out.

All of those type of ribbon cables also have the part number on them. Look at the part of the cable that overlaps the connector that it plugs into. That way you can be sure this is the right cable.

I have fixed many of these type of radios and have not seen the micro switches brake on that cable. They have a very thin piece that gets pushed in, it could be mistaken for a broken switch.

The most common ribbon cable that goes bad on these radios are the one that connects the 2 displays together. It has a metal connector jack on it and the part number is J84-0154-05

Hope this helps

    Almost forgot, ther is also another common problem with this type of radio.

    The micro switch that is next to the gears that move the display in and out wil sometimes be out of postion or more accuratly, the lever that depresses the switch will get worn a little and not press the switch in completely. This can be fixed by carefully unsoldering the switch and moving it closer to the lever by about 1/16 of an inch and resoldering it into place. or you can order the lever and replace it, but you need to be able to re-align the gear that moves the lever properly or it will open too soon or too late.

    If this is the problem, it will turn on and open, then close back up and turn off very quickly.

    I can give you more information if you need it. Just coment on the post.

Disc tray cannot open on model RH1999H no disc inside

I would suggest firstly checking the drive belt on the mechanism.
Otherwise if not follow these instructions: When you remove the DVD mechanism open the metal case top and bottom. Underneath the mechanism with the bottom cover removed you see a small PCB soldered to the loading motor pins. Remove the small PCB turn the PCB around and you will see a micro-switch on the PCB. Replacing this will solve your problem.

A fall is always an accident which might brring about problems that are different to a natural failure . Hence it would be good if you can open the unit carefully and start a probe.
You must look out for:
1. Broken power board, main board or crack on the PCB.
2. Look for damage to the projection lamp, if any mounting pins are broken.
3. Look for safety switches that are micro limit switches that could have damaged or moved about which is necessary for triggering the power. These are found in the filter/lamp covers.
4.The worst issue can be CRACK in the PCB. You must use good powerrful table lamp overhead lamps to have a good glimpse of the board , use of a magnification glass is recommended.
I hope you make this first hand observation so that we have a lead to work on. So open up and probe. Hope this is helpful Good day

Mode Switch

Its the switch itself that's broken. I just replaced mine, a challenging task due to its small size. Seems to be a common fault. I have these switches in stock.

Power problem with my KDC-M7024

The part number for that cable is


This other cable going from the other display to the main board should also be replaced at the same time.


You can verify the part number by looking right on the cable, it is on the very end of the cable on the part that overlaps the connector the cable plugs into.

Only places i know that sell them are authorized kenwood servie centers. There should be one in your area.

please give me a "fixya" if this helps.

Control panel will not open when pressed in lower left corner

There are a few problems with these units including the flexible pcb's and also the detector micro switches and also the plastic gears getting sheared, I suggest you bring it back to where you had it repaired as it seems they haven't fixed it properly yet.
