Question about Kenwood DPX-501 CD Player
Did you ever get a chance to repair your DPX-501? If so, how did it go? Was it easy? Did it solve the problem?
I got the new display part from the Kenwood supplier on LI, NY but there are dozens of pins on lining both sides of the display, each 1/16" from the other. I don't have confidence in my ability to detach the old and solder the new to the main board without further disaster.
Choices for me now are:
- continue "flying blind" - most likely solution for the moment.
- pay someone to do it - includes removal and being without a head unit for an unspecified time, plus cost.
- replace - I'd like to change brands although it means replacing the Kenwood satellite unit too, so more cost.
This hasn't been a good advertisement for Kenwood. People are impressed by the sound in my car, but not so much by the blank screen, guesswork changing stations etc.
I really like the unit, and the display was great while it worked: exactly as long as the warranty. I can't recommend Kenwood.
