I have a kdc-mp538u and the screen just stop working any help


It could be dirty contacts on the back of the faceplate. Have you tried to clean the metal contacts? Use a pencil eraser on the contacts and try to get them nice and shiny. If the contacts are hard to clean with an eraser, remove the faceplate and replace it on the deck several times and see if that helps. If the deck still doesn't work properly, try a reset by hitting the reset button with a pen tip. It is located below the volume control.

DISPLAY ON MY KENWOOD STEREO STOPPED WIORKING


Hi there,

I also created a tutorial on fixing faceplates with 2R7 resistors (refer to my tip).

But, your unit will have a different chassis, as the faceplate is also a video display.

First you need to determine if the buttons on the faceplate are operating the various functions. If the buttons are NOT operating, then the faceplate itself (or connection to the main unit) can be considered faulty.

It's highly probable that the RIBBON cable (which connects faceplate to the inside of the unit) may be defective - this is common in some Kenwood units.

Try searching Google or youtube for ribbon cable repairs etc.


Hope this leads you in the right direction.


Cheers,

Scott

My desk works great, expect the screen blink when the units button are pressed. This happens on probably every other button use or so. I think the faceplate is slight loose. While the screen flickers, it...


It sounds like the contacts are getting weak or the contacts are dirty... Take off the face and clean the contacts with alcohol. If that dosen't help then take a paper clip and gently bend the pins up. Be careful not to break the pins.

Nokia 2100 keypad suddenly stopped working


Please try to open the pad and clean its contacts. below is the proceedure to open the phone (if it is not under warranty). you two credit cards and a screw driver.
  • Take front faceplate off by inserting card 1 between housing and silver key. As you pull up, take card 2 and slide it on the side of the phone prying the clips off.
  • Unscrew these 6 screws at the edges with the T6 screwdriver and release the 4 clips surrounding the LCD screen.
  • Slip the little black frame off of the LCD screen, and lift the screen. You should now see a screw. Removing this screw removes the back cover.
  • That’s it! Put your new faceplate or housing in and figure out how to put things back by following the directions here in reverse order.

Buttons stopped working


The contacts on the faceplate or radio are dirty. Remove the faceplate and thoroughly clean the copper contacts with wet Q-tips in alcohol. Also clean the ones on the radio.

Buttons on face plate dont work


May not be a solution to this problem in particular but get on ebay and find a new flex cable for like 6 dollars. The flex cables in slider phones break down or come loose easily. Usually this causes your screen to turn white. In your case the buttons have stopped working. It may be another problem altogether. So try replacing it, its cheaper than buying a new phone or taking it to a shop. Hope it helps!

Faceplate not responding / acting very weirdly


Sounds like a bad connection with the faceplate and the multi connector that the faceplate mates with when closed. check for dirt and bent pins on both connectors. Luck
