Question about Kenwood KDC-X590 CD Player

Re: Repair response

Hey there. Thanks for taking the time to post your knowledge...very cool to have people that care!

I do have a little experience soldering but how delicate is this procedure? Also, I'm not sure what you mean by the main board but I'm assuming you're talking aobut opening up the unit (as opposed to the face plate) & pulling the board out of that?

Do you have any kind of reference like a picture or diagram of what I should be looking at? If so, please feel free to email me at

Thanks again!

If you are talking about the problem with the display out, yes the main board is right under the cd mech. All you need to take out is the cd mech, not the board if you are wanting the reflow the solder on the surface mount resistors in the front right side (with the radio facing you).

If you are talking about something else, just let me know. This question was not addressed to anybody specifically. But this is a comon problem with this model. I just came across this question today.

To ask a specific person a question you need to click the "Ask me" link right below that experts name.

If this was not eant for me, I am sorry, but I thought maybe it was.

Our GE Profile frig won't go into auto defrost mode

It is normal to build up frost at the Evaporator.
The Automatic-defrost-System removes the Ice 3 or 4 times, every 24 hours.(de-frosting).

1 The Fan MUST rotate , inside.
Is the Fan blowing Air inside,??
sometimes The door must be shut, then the fan-motor starts (,put your ear against the door when you close it and listen for the fan- noise,)

There may be an Automatic-Defrost fault:
Faulty :
Defrost-Timer, (electro-mecanical) ( DT ) c. fault.
Defrost-Heater,. ( DH ) common fault.
Defrost-Termination-Timer,. ( DTT)
(Over) Temperature-Fuse. ( TF )

If the Refrigerator has 'Electronic' controls,
a Computer controls the Automatic Defrosting.
A Temperature-Sensor replaces the DDT.
A Computer-controlled timer replaces the DT
----- A Sensor faulty?
-----Control Board (Computer) faulty. Common fault.

I found,-
To read and remember is easy.
To 'understand' takes a little more time .
To practice, improves my skill,

With skills, it is easy to perform the task.
Experience has build up my skill & confidence.
Wisdom is, when I admit that I require additional knowledge.

That's why I am happy.)

The watch has stopped working,

If you are mildly particular... you can check out your nearby and local watch repair on internet sites... I have trusted YELP for a long time... simply because they TOOK OUT the skillfully-challenged twerp who scratched up the wife's antique 18k gold Omega case with a BOX-KNIFE.

Additionally there are great watch repair shops for your (Breitling) high end chronometers/chronographs on Post Street in San Francisco... JD Watchworks, (210 Post St, Ste 506, San Francisco, CA · (415) 397-0310... without a moments hesitation...
My favorite place outside of New York, New York (Concord Impresario)... unless of course you are looking for a Suisse vacation... Heuer and Rado need to go home for proper respect!

Good luck with that...
Very expensive and time consuming (but a serene experience... if you take yourself along (but you will be forever... very particular)).

Lucerne, Suisserland... Oh my... yes!

but hey... what do I know?

I like Columbus, Ohio... Hershey Pennsylvania, San Diego, Plano...Seattle... Boston

Not that critical. If it broke, I'm betting it was the insulator, (the white porcelin part), if I am correct, continue removing the plug, and take to a parts store...NAPA, Auto Zone, Advance, etc, the critical part is not the part that broke, but rather the length and diameter of the threads.

If u battery meter shows full then ur lucky coz it aint u battery!
Secondly if u have some basic electronic knowledge and experience, my suggestion would be to open the handset carefully and tune the Variable inductor(it looks like a small silverish device with a black knob) very small. Call on ur loopback number and as soon as the phone rings carefully tilt the variable inductor to resonate to the frequency of the base and when u successfully accomplish this you will hear a ring on ur phone and if not then keep trying the same!

I warn u do it only if u have good experience and im not responsible for the damage of ur phone!!!

Hey there Tom! Sorry for the slow response, but have had too many irons in the fire at the same time, as of late.
Sounds like you may have a case of , what I call "RIC" (Repair Induced Confusion).
Nothing to be ashamed of. We all experience it from time to time, whether novice or professional. I don't know if it is a fungus or bacteria, but I think that the manufactures' pour a little of it in many electronic devices. As soon as you open the cover to attempt a simple repair, you get the disease. Once you contract the disease, anything and everything you touch seems to turn to ****. From personal experience, I can say that it is reoccurring and once you get it, it will usually last the rest of the day, or until you get that item finally repaired ; which ever is longer.
It causes a person to not get things reseated correctly; or to plug things into the wrong place; or to unintentionally loosen a different connector; or to do things that make perfect sense at the time (but someone else would look at it and say "Boy,was that a dumb thing to do!")
Usually, the fix for this is to very slowly, methodically and carefully go through the entire device and reseat anything that is reseatable. Cables, connectors, hard drives, CD drives, memory, modules, batteries (excepting maybe, the CMOS battery) and so forth. While doing this, keep your eyes open and check for anything that shouldn't be there. I have had small pieces of wire, solder balls, used staples, extra screws and such creep from my work area into whatever I have been working on.
If this doesn't work the first time, take a break and try it again. Go get a cup of coffee, take a walk around the block, go out and mow the lawn. Then set down and try it again.
Hope this helps and best of luck!

Hey Mike

Go back and check the fine cabling that connects LED indicaters to motherborad. There's got to be a small cable you forgot to plug into the board to feed back poer state. Take your time and check everything twice.
