DPX-501 LCD Repair

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?

Thanks...

    Don't bother, the LCD is NOT the problem. I replaced mine with negative results. Was a lot of soldering looking through a magnifying glass for nothing.

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.

Same here. Replacing the LCD does not fix the problem. I wish someone could tell us what the real problem is.

DPX-501 Root Menu Help


I emailed Kenwood USA and they gave me the number to an authorized Kenwood service center on the east coast( New Jersey). I sent them the receiver, and within 2 days they sent it back completely fixed. They even fixed an error code I didn't even know wasn't working. Price on the repair will vary depending on the problem. If it is fairly new and still under warranty then there should not be any cost to repair it.

Kenwood dpx-501


I just solved the problem with my kenwood dpx mp 2090U - (looks similar with 501). FL Display with single CD, USB, 2 Din.
I should share this......... as I received the clue from someone that share the same case to me . Thanks to Mr,Nasirbaek from Indonesia,
The problem is at the main board . Dry (bad) soldering occurred. There are more then 5 resistors in series configuration. The resistor is quiet big (1.5mm x 3.5 mm, surface mount type R) about 2,7Ohms.The position is start from near usb port cable and ended to near big transistor (1 x 1.5 cm power transistor). After resoldering check with multitester to make sure that all R are connected in series configuration.
Just open 3 screws to access the main board. 1 at the top case. 2 at cd assembly, then Carefully take out the CD and the CD ribbon cable.
good luck.

CD player and everything works fine but there is no display .....


Well, my display went out earlier this week. Took it apart and found out that the LCD on the 501dpx was burnt out. I also found out all we have to do is replace the whole faceplate instead of the system

IPod Interface not working


That happened to me and the PFD Manual online said it means it's a communication error between the ipod adapter and the ipod. The ipod in my case was totally froze and I had to reset it using the hold on off then holding in menu and select for 10 seconds and it rebooted.
