Some people will tell you to reset the unit, you can try that but I don't think it will work.
it has a small little button inside of a very small hole in the display, you can press it with a pen tip or something small like that, but you will lose all things stored in memory. Preset stations, clock ect.

The problem you are having is an electrical one on the main board, or you have a broken connection somewhere on the main board.

The supply voltage for the dislau illumination comes from a transistor ref # Q41. If you have a multimeter and are very good at taking thing apart and putting them pack together perfectly you can try to figure it out yourself. But you also need a power supply and would need to take the wiring harness out of the car to power the radio on.

Your best bet is to take it in and have it looked at by a professional.

This is not a very old radio and may still be under warranty. It gets a 2 year warranty from Kenwood, and if you got the extended warranty, it will be longer.

I hope this helps you, but there is no easy fix for this problem that can be done without some serious electronic troubleshooting skills.

Let me know if you need any further help.

maybe short circuit or similiar problem inside since its geting hot, probably not a problem with the faceplate I would remove the cd player from your car and take it to a professional for a diagnosis / repair estimate. Can't solve this one with text only.

My friend pulled a KD-G729 from his mother's car, to install in his 2004 chevy colorado. The radio worked fine before he pulled it, and once installed in his truck, the only thing that seems to work is...


acc is missing. the truck requires a data module for the radio to work properly. I suggest you take to stereo install shop and have this added. it should then work great

I have a Kenwood KDC MP532U. The face plate will not display.


it more than likely has bad solder connections inside the radio on some surface mount resistors usually located on the right front of the radio as it faces you.

I have a CDX-M8815X unit only works with remote commander


The problem is the ribbon cable,the one connects the face to the main board,if you live in USA you can order it from pacparts.com or sony.com.
For replace it you will need to open the unit and open the face by moving manually the gears,then remove the side screws of the face and remove face,then remove the cd mech. you will see the ribbon connector.Just replaced and put everthing back togheter.
Good luck

KDC-MP919 No display


You probably have a break in the flexible ribbon cable that goes between the flip face and the mother board. Try partstore.com for a replacement cable.

Hello Gully, the flat cable between the front panel and the radio. If you want I can give you the part number but the replacement of this cable is not simple. Best regards, Arpi

Display stopped working


My Alpine CDA-7842 works fine from a functional point of view but the display (readout) had stopped working. All the lights on the display work but the actual readout is blank. At first the readout would intermittently work now it's completely dead. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

thanks
