    Sorry this doesnot slove my problem. They do not carry anything like that at the Radio shack(The Source)In Canada. Neither does the Web site does not specify any solution for my requirments. The cable I'm looking for has to conect from the Deck to the Face plate at an other location.(or say at the back of my Passenger seat. That way I as a driver do not have to do any thing at all with the deck). Hope you understand what I mean.

Hi,

For this particular model I doubt. To my thinking, your best bet would be to shop at eBay or car audio repair shops and purchase a defective unit, not necessarily the same model but has to be an Alpine and whose faceplates share identical physical dimensions and locking system. You would need the housing of the faceplate and the enclosure of the unit but not the electronics inside. Thereafter, it would be a matter of wiring the pins to an flat cable, something similar to this. The arrangement would be, the working unit, the dummy faceplate with extension wire to the dummy unit (perhaps even just the front receptacle) to the actual faceplate.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Buttons don't work for except the volume. CD will play, but can't turn deck off and it's stuck in demo mode.


The problem is most likely in the detachable face. You could purchase a new one but it would cost about $135. Might be better just to buy a new radio. You can check for the part at http://www.pacparts.com/ .

Display on kdc-mp638u not working


These units are pretty cut, and dry.. Basicly the only thing you can check for yourself is connection. If the connection between the face plate, and the deck is good, and tight then you have one of 2 problems.
1) Bad face plate. Fix= $90-$130

2) Bad connection to the board on the radio Fix $60-$120

There is however a VERY off chance the processor is jumbled up, and wont cost you a dime to do a cold reset, so give it a shot.

To reset this unit simply remove the face plate, and locate the rest button. It is very small, but easy to find. Just use an ink pen or something of similar size to push the button.

Ribbon cable broken and now cannot open the face plate


You need to take the unit apart to fix the cable since the other end of it plugs into the board inside, it's pretty easy to take apart though. Good luck!

I have a dual xdmr7700 stereo and lost the manual need to get the face plate off


Same problem as yours with my deck. Bought the deck a month ago, turned car on in the morning face plate does not move down, music plays everything ok but can not access the cd or move the plate regadless button pushing.
Have you tried the reset button? Hold it for 3 seconds ( ball point pen to press the button above power button) U will lose the presets but Oh weel.
I am going to remove power completey from the unit later on today, and if it still has issues I am returning it for a replacement ( Bought it form Best Buy)

Power to stereo none to unit


There is a ribbon cable that goes from the display to the main board of the radio that may be bad, if you have everything connected properly and all you get is the red led, this is a possibility. No way for anybody to know if you have it wired wrong if they can not look at it themself.

The red wire is for power when the key is on, the yellow wire should get power all the time, the black wire is ground.

If you have those correct, the radio should at least turn on. If you have these right, you may need a new ribbon cable. The connector that interfaces with the detachable face must also be taken off the old ribbon cable and put on the new one, or get a new connector and just replace it. The ribbon cable does not come with that connector. It is soldered on the ribbon cable, so if you are not very good with a soldering iron, you should have a service center do it for you.

Let me know if you want the part number for the ribbon cable and/or connector, I can get those for you.

I can not guarantee that the ribbon cable is the problem, or that it is the only problem, but it is the most likely problem with that model number of Kenwood. I have repaired many of them, so I have a good idea what causes most of the problems, but I have seen times when the usual suspect is not the problem and something else like the LCD in the face is bad, or the IC that controls the display is bad. Even a voltage regulator on the main board of the radio can be at fault as well. There are probably about 10 different things that can cause that one problem, having an experienced technician is always the best way to determan the problem with certainty.

Let me know if I can be any more help for you.

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.
