Hello, I have a Kenwood KDC-X791 My deck lights up on the sides... (the two selecting wheels)... but the display in the center does not.. I can still play music thanks to memorizing the order of buttons i must push in order to play the tracks i want.. but I would really like to fix this issue Where do you think the problem lies?? in the face plate or the deck? i double checked the contacts on the faceplace to make sure they were clean and secure .. and thers seems to be no issue

It probably has bad solder connections on a series of surface mount resistors on the right side of deck inside of the deck.

Kenwood KDC-319 CD Player Logo Problem with KDC-319 CD Player installed a kenwood kdc 319 in a 04 chevy malibu when i have car off i turn deck on an my cars dash board lights turn on Posted by A

I would start by disconnecting the radio and hooking it up right,the power should go through the ignition switch.So that when you turn the car off the radio will go off and to hear it on again you have to turn the key to accessory or start it.That might take care of a few of your problems.

Display screen not working

Sounds like you might have a bad connection where the faceplate connects to the unit, or the faceplate is bad.

Kenwood KDC-MP428 - the display is out but works otherwise

there are several surface mount resistors on the right side inside of the deck that need to be resoldered.
