Question about Kenwood KDC-715S

Manually opening a Kenwood motorized face

Hi. I have a Kenwood KDV-V7017. I'm having a problem with the cable that runs from the head unit to the D-Mask. So i've ordered a new cable, but due to the faulty cable, the face does not rotate open when I run power. Is there a way to manually open the faceplate by hand? Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi if you pop off the top cover you should see a motor on the right hand side, with a flexi cable connected to it, if you unplug the Flrxi from the pcb, you can then use a pp3 (9v) type battery to power up the motor. this will be much esier than manually moving the gears.

be sure to remove the flexi first otherwise you WILL damage the motor driver.

Regards

Mark

My kenwood kdv 2339 faceplate stole last june. where can i find or buy same faceplate? thanks!


Unfortunately the same MODEL FACE PLATE is needed to work the set. So this can be sourced only from Kenwood as a spare as most of the dealers will not have a spare one. You can request to the service support of Kenwood near to your place for ordering the front panel.
The other option is to try for a second hand from a scrapped set most of which has a damaged main unit.

Faceplate opens to remove the faceplate but there is no display?


you probably have a bad flexible cable (goes from the face to the main motherboard). unless you are good at desoldering and soldering, you may want to have it done by a professional.

Replace Flex-PCB in a Kenwood KDC-ps909


Don't remember but I think you need "Keys" a couple of funny shaped forks to press in the sides of the head unit...Frankly, if the PCB cable is bad (and you have one). Why not contact a local car audio dealer that sells Kenwood?
Good Luck

Kenwood KDC-715s problem.


the kenwoods with the motorized face platesdevelop one problem with time. the flexable ribbon cable between the main unit & the face plate. as the face open & closes, over time wares out the cable. problem consists of face plate not opening/closing, display missing & and/or some or all buttons not working. note these can also be intermittent problems. typically the part number is located on the cable itself on the side where it pluggs into the main board. since you have a service manual, you should verify it in the manual. good luck.
