SRC button on faceplate doesn't work

The SRC button on the face plate (KDC 225MR) doesn't do anything. But, I can work all functions from the remote pad on the transome of the boat. Is the faceplate bad?

Dear sir/madam,

This is the dust problem for not working the face plate button. so you must clean the face plate.If the terminals on the unit or faceplate get dirty, wipe them with a dry, soft cloth.
If the faceplate of this unit is stained, wipe it
with a dry soft cloth such as a silicon cloth.
If the faceplate is stained badly, wipe the stain
off with a cloth moistened with neutral
cleaner, then wipe neutral detergent off.
Note:
Applying spray cleaner directly to the unit may
affect its mechanical parts. Wiping the
faceplate with a hard cloth or using a volatile
liquid such as thinner or alcohol may scratch
the surface or erases characters.


thanks
Good luck

To test it you need to take apart the device and test for continuity (using a multimeter) the back of the switch.
If you can remove the button it is probably easier to spray some circuit cleaning solution on the switch circuit behind the button, often dirt and oxide cause this kind of problem.

    Go to a local electronics retailer and buy a product similar to this.
    Often you get this kind of problem because of oxide, particularly on marine equipment.

    If you cleaned the switch contact surface, behind the bottom (you need to remove either single button or plate) and the button does not work then it is probably faulty.
    To do a definitive test you should take apart the stereo, acess the back of the circuit board with buttons and check switch contact with a Multimeter, verifying if there is contiunuity when you press the switch.
    In this case I suggest contacting a repairman, it is not a difficult job but involves some risk of damaging the stereo.

Faceplate is not displaying anything.Knobs are ligthing up but no display.What could be wrong?


You have not mentioned how old it is. Some older models of Pioneer and Kenwood use a flat ribbon cable between the face plate and the head unit. Due to the constant opening and closing of the faceplate the ribbon develops a crack and you loose display or some times some functions.Will need professional help to replace the above.

There is no display on the faceplate. The faceplate is stuck in the CD eject position. If I remove the faceplate the mechanism rotates to the position where the controls would be visible but when I attach...


I would try cleaning the connectors on the face plate with an pencil eraser and on the unit itself with a very fine sand paper. And make sure you get rid of any dust after cleaning before putting the face plate back on.
Please leave me a good feedback.
Thanks

What is the security code for kdc-891


You will need a Kenwood RC-410 remote control.
To reset the code do the following:

1) Turn on the car.
2) The faceplate rotates out and the CODE - - - - prompt appears.
3) Press >>| and Auto keys simultaneously on the faceplate and hold for 4 seconds. (If the faceplate rotates back into the console push on the upper left top edge of the faceplate and it will flip back around. Press the Eject button and then try it again.)
4) The screen will still say CODE, but the - - - - will disappear! When this happens press the 5 key on the remote twice and it enters a K on the display on the faceplate. Hit the >>| key on the faceplate.
5) Press the 2 key on the remote three times and it enters a C on the display on the faceplate. Hit the >>| key on the faceplate.
6) Press the 2 key on the remote once and it enters an A on the display on the faceplate. Hit the >>| key on the faceplate.
7) Press the 7 key on the remote twice and it enters an R on the display on the faceplate. Hit the >>| key on the faceplate.
8) The radio goes into All Off mode and you are set! Hit the SRC button on the faceplate to select CD, Radio, etc.

You have to reset your system... Use a pen to push a small button that's located in the front of the face plate. That will reset the system...If it gets stuck on standby, just push the SRC button on the face plate or on the remote..
