I have a kdc-mp538u and the screen just stop working any help


It could be dirty contacts on the back of the faceplate. Have you tried to clean the metal contacts? Use a pencil eraser on the contacts and try to get them nice and shiny. If the contacts are hard to clean with an eraser, remove the faceplate and replace it on the deck several times and see if that helps. If the deck still doesn't work properly, try a reset by hitting the reset button with a pen tip. It is located below the volume control.

I have a kenwood excelon kdc-x869.the gears striped on the faceplate when my knee hit the faceplate.installed new gears but cant get switch in right position to operate right.


The gear which moves the lever that opens and closes the face position sensor switch needs to be installed correctly. The best way is to have face horizontal and try to position the gear so the lever closes the switch.

I can't get the CD to eject.... in fact, I can't get the unit to acknowledge there is even a CD/mp3 option... IT just flips back and forth between tuner and aux. It was cold last night when I put a Cd in...


When you remove the faceplate you will find a small little black hole in the deck.Insert an opened paperclip to over ride the eject and make it come out.Please let me know if this helps

Unlock security Code Kenwood KDC-MP3035


To reset the code do the following:

1) Turn on the car.
2) The faceplate rotates out and the CODE - - - - prompt appears.
3) Press >>' and Auto keys simultaneously on the faceplate and hold for 4 seconds. (If the faceplate rotates back into the console push on the upper left top edge of the faceplate and it will flip back around. Press the Eject button and then try it again.)
4) The screen will still say CODE, but the - - - - will disappear! When this happens press the 5 key on the remote twice and it enters a K on the display on the faceplate. Hit the >>' key on the faceplate.
5) Press the 2 key on the remote three times and it enters a C on the display on the faceplate. Hit the >>' key on the faceplate.
6) Press the 2 key on the remote once and it enters an A on the display on the faceplate. Hit the >>' key on the faceplate.
7) Press the 7 key on the remote twice and it enters an R on the display on the faceplate. Hit the >>' key on the faceplate.
8) The radio goes into All Off mode and you are set! Hit the SRC button on the faceplate to select CD, Radio, etc.

Face plate on KDC-MP528 kenwood deck wont open


if you have checked all of your wiring and fuses and already tried hitting the reset button you should first remove the faceplate and check the contacts on the main unit and the back of the faceplate. if they are dirty clean them (with power off) with contact cleaner or a small eraser. if your lucky that will fix the problem but most likely you have a bad ribbon cable. this cable attaches the faceplate contacts to the main unit and flexes as the face tilts. after time these cables get small cracks that may not be visible. you can usualy buy the part from a place like pacparts.com and replace it to solve your problem.

Wont stay open


I had load of these units and the cure is simple. You need to replace the ribbon to the faceplate as these get damaged due to wear and tear. Every unit i had with this fault, i fixed by replacing this ribbon. Buy the ribbon and surround as the new surround is a modified one to give extra life to the ribbon. Hope this helps, good luck!

Won't turn on


My only other hypothesis is that, similar to my wife's Kenwood deck that has the MASK motorized faceplate, the flex cable that connects the moving faceplate portion to the main unit has started to crack and lose connection. After a few years of moving back and forth, folding and unfolding, this seems to be a pretty common thing. I was able to replace the flex cable on my wife's deck, but only because I stumbled across detailed instructions (with pictures!) and I got lucky with the replacement cable being in stock at a local repair shop. Your mileage may vary :)
