Question about Kenwood KDC-135 CD Player
That is a DC error.
What happened and why?
amp IC is fried, probably from overheating playing at very loud level. Maybe from a speaker going bad, maybe just random part failure
Is this fixable?
How do i fix it?
You must get the replacement part, take the radio apart, remove the solder from the amp ic, put new IC in and resolder connections. Put radio back together without forgetting anything you took apart. Also need to make sure the soldering is good, no solder bridges or anything like that (you wouldn't want to blow it up again right after replacing it)
How do i prevent this from happening again?
If it was caused by playing too loud for too long, don't turn volume up to point of hearning any distortion, that is clipping in the amp you hear and is very ******* amplifier ic.
If it happened from a speaker going bad you must replace the bad speaker.
If it was a random part failure there is not much you can do, you had some bad luck, thats all.
If you do not know how to remove solder and to solder very good, it is reccomended that you take it in for service, but it may not be worth it since this unit is not very exspensive. A shop may charge as much as $100 for this repair. part alone is about $30 or $40.
If you want to know the part number please reply and I will look it up for you, or you can get the generic number off the ic itself.
