SOURCE: power problems

Try brushing off the contact where the face plate goes on, may have something stopping it from working right

SOURCE: face plate is black

The 12 volts lights that illuminate the face plate are burnt inside and should be replace. It's a common failure on any face plate.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: my dual xdm6820 doesnt turn on and theres a red binking light

Probably you are mising 1 voltage,check this you need to have 2 voltages ok,1 voltage has to be present on the yellow wire(constant voltage,means all the time,ok) and the second voltage on the red wire (this voltage has to be switched wiht the ignition key)check this and try to fix the problem,probably there is a fuse blown,you can use a tester light to check the 2 voltages.or if you dont want to do this just conect the yellow and red wires together and the unit has to turn on.

SOURCE: I have one red light

Often this is not a sign of the red ring of death, so I believe you are in luck. Try to make suree all of your power cords are connected, also unplug them and plug them back in. Also try to remove your hard drive and put it back in. Hope this helps.

is this a headunit you have just installed? if not then I am not sure, but if it is, try swapping the red and yellow wires over. One should have permanent live, the other should be switchable. (unless you want the headunit to stay on when the ignition is off, in which case put them both to a permenant live feed.)
Hope this helps.

Absolutly "could" be the problem. Try using a q-tip with rubbing alcohol on it and GENTLY clean all contacts. Replace the face and see if tere is an improvement.

maybe the flexible ribbon cable between the face plate and the unit itself is broken and needs to be replaced. check partstore.com for part if you can do the repair.

The car security is not connected to a head unit. It probably has a small blinking red light on it which blinks when you remove the faceplate and switch the ignition off. This is just an indicator which lets people see that the face plate is removed.

You can replace the headunit with any brand/model you want. It would be cheaper than buying a replacement faceplate.

Faceplate will not open


Perhaps something is not installed correctly physically. Sometimes if something is a little twisted the way the unit is installed it will keep it from opening properly. Try moving the unit slightly and see if that helps.
