    Hi All,

    Anyone who owns or used to own a Kenwood Mask had this happen??

    Basically drove my car to work with the Stereo on no problems, popped out at lunch in the car no problems on the way home the display did not come on. So i took the face plate off put it back on and still nothing. The unit still plays fine but i cant see anything on the display.

    I did hear that the ribbon cable in these do go, so i reckon thats what happend to mine.

    Any ideas in cost if i send to back to kenwood??

    Thanks

    Dal

    Yes m8, same thing happened to me as well about a month ago. I made enquiries and it could just be that the display has failed. Local company wanted £20 just to look at it and up to £50 to fix it. If it's just the display it is possible to replace the front panel for about £40.

    The annoying thing was, up 'til Christmas we had two of these (one in wifes car as well). Wife swapped her car and I swapped the cd player as hers was the newer model AAAAAAARGH!

    Me.........I'm just using it as it is, I know what all the pre sets are, unless you are someone that alters the equalizer settings or messes with the menu functions you'll soon get used to the blank screen.

    Thanks

    Hi Mate,

    Just put my Headunit back in after repair and all works perfectly. Would recomend this guy and for £25.00 might be worth getting yours done when your a bit flush.

    Let me know if you want anymore info on this guy

    Thanks

    Dal,

    What is this company and where are they?

    My 2 year old mask MP3 player has bitten the dust in the last week. :suicide:

    Worked on a off last week, sometimes sound but no display, but no just no anything.

    £25 sounds like a bargain compared to £150+ for a new one.

    Cheers

    Mick

    Can highly recommend this guy. :smashin:

    £25 including return postage.

    My mp3 mask was screwed. (no display, no sound)
    Came back with a new black back faceplate and the unit repaired.

    Saved me a packet :clap: :clap: :clap:

    Fantastic!

    I had the same problem as outlined by previous people. I emailed this guy and he responded really quickly. It cost £35.99 to fix my head unit, that included the recoded postage back to me (about £10). It cost me another £10 to send it recorded post, but for under £50 I was happy to get it fixed.

    Turn around was really quick, I sent the unit on Thursday, and got it back on Tuesday.

    I would highly recommend this guy if you have this problem.

    Just to keep this thread upto date, I've just mailed Mark and he's still doing the repairs, despite the website saying they don't..

    I'll be sending my dead headunit off to him tomorrow.. fingers crossed for an equally good result!
