Re: Kenwood VR-605 display fading out
There is a cold solder connection on the display device, on the display driver board, or on or in the power supply that supplys the display voltage to the driver board. The only way you can repair it is if you have some soldering experience and or some electronic troubleshooting skills. If you go in and start poking around, and you poke at the wrong thing, It will smoke on you, as solid state electronics are very unforgiving when it comes to shorting out something, even if its for a blink of an eye!!! If you really like the unit, take it into a repair shop, as it should'nt cost to much to repair. If the units 3 to 6 years old, Maybe its time to think about upgrading to a newer unit??. Good Luck

Its becuase it is dirty inside, Unplug it. Take the case off of it. Get sum compressed air from a computer store or Walmart. Like 10 dollars. And just blow the whole thing out with that canned air. do it ever 3 months.. It should fix the problem for life!(:
The problem is a bad solder connection probably on the display itself. These are not the easiest to open up. I would not suggest you attempt this if you haven't done these before. This is a simple fix for any shop that handles audio repair. Call around for a shop that works on Pioneer gear and request an estimate over the phone. Indicate that the dispaly has bad connections that need to be resoldered. You may find a shop that will repair this for short money. Where are you located? Perhaps I can suggest a shop.
I had this problem! It was the Cars Battery. Kenwoods unit's fade or go completely blank when there is little power to power the stereo. Try charging your battery or grabing a new one from a scrappy! I was all over the net looking for help but finally sorted it!
P.S. My younger brother had to do the exact thing and it worked for him as well!!!
