Question about Kenwood KDC-X717 CD Player
I have the Kenwood KDC-X717, and when the vehicle is powered on, the faceplate opens and stays there. There is no display at all. When I pull off the faceplate, the unit closes back up, until I put the faceplate back in, and then it opens up again and stays there. I have verified that all voltages are getting to the unit itself (12v constant, and 12v keyed). I am at a loss for what is going on. What is most likely; Bad ribbon cable, bad faceplate, or is the whole unit just shot?
This unit appears to have been opened - the "do not remove this sticker" has been peeled off. Could have been scraped I guess. Would an authorized repair center fix it even though it's out of warranty?
I've had this problem before. The ribbon cable needs to be replaced. They wear out every few years. Take it in for service. Or do you want to sell it? I need the face plate for mine.
