Kenwood KDC-MP832U display not working

Hi, I got the Kenwood KDC-MP832U CD player for christmas 2 years ago...a few days ago the dosplay started fading...then it became black, I removed the front panel and it came back, since yesterday it's constantly black. The unit is can listen to radio, CD or USB, but there is nothing on the display. Is something broken or there is a way toy fix this?

    I have a Kenwood KDC-MP632U and I have the same problem. The display is illuminated and I can use the dials and buttons to control like normal, but the display does not come on.

I had this problem! It was the Cars Battery. Kenwoods unit's fade or go completely blank when there is little power to power the stereo. Try charging your battery or grabing a new one from a scrappy! I was all over the net looking for help but finally sorted it!

P.S. My younger brother had to do the exact thing and it worked for him as well!!!

Hi Jeka65,

I think you need to have at least 11 volts or more on the yellow and the REd wires for it to turn on. Using a volt meter set on DC volts and at least a range of 20Volts, you can read the REd wire to the Black wire and see if you have at least 11 volts. Do the same for the yellow wire and reference to the black wire. you need at least 11 volts, Your car should be running about 13.6 volts across the battery.
