Bought a Kenwood car radio last year and it died a month after the warranty expired... well, not dead, but the iPad/USB connector is dead. I'm of a mind to repair it, and from my limited troubleshoot, have determined there is no +5 volts coming from the USB connector on the faceplate. That would be a show stopper. Ideally, I'd know if there were a transistor switch that controlled that, or perhaps a fuse or fold back circuit for current limiting. Paper would be awfully handy, but my attempts to locate schematics lead me to believe I'll have to make my own, dang it. If I can't fix this in an hour or two of piddling, I'll replace it, but damned if I'll replace it with a Kenwood. (Not impressed with the radio, generally.)
Anyone have better sources than me for locating a service document for the faceplate on this mediocre klunker?
