Question about Kenwood KAC-9152D Car Audio Amplifier

I was installing my amp on my other car and it was working fine, but when i was tightening the power cable screw, my screw driver touched the amp itself and it sparked and powered off.. i have done this in the past by accident but nothing ever went wrong.. i checked the main power fuse and it was fine.. i checked the fuses on the amp and they where fine.. is there any internal fuses or transistors that would of shorted out? how can i fix this problem? thanks...

How to Replace screen and digitizer for iPod touch 4th gen.

iPod Touch 4th Generation:
iPod Touch 4th Generation: Heat the surrounding edges of the iPod for 30 seconds
Begin at the bottom corner...used a straight blade to pry the glass up slowly; the LCD will come with it since they are fused together.
When you get closer to the top be very careful since the wifi cable is normally sticking to the glass. If it is use a small screw driver to detach it from the glass. The wifi cable is on the opposite side of the power button.
There is one flex cable (LCD) that can be removed; just a slight twist and it should pop off easily.
The other flex cable (Digitizer) is under the logic board and since you'd be replacing it you can cut this flex cable to work with more ease.
Remove the eight screws on the metal plate.
Remove the metal cover over the camera...screw driver on the very edge and pop not use much force or dig at it since it would be very easy to destroy the camera.
To remove the metal plate that covers the batter: bottom left corner... dig your screw driver in (shallow) then push through horizontally until you reach the edge and lift the end of the screw driver upwards...using this method will allow the speaker to stay in place and the metal plate to separate.
Remove the top three screws
Put a screw driver between the logic board and the power flex cable as you gently lift the logic board up on that side...this method will ensure you don't rip the POWER flex cable
Do not lift aggressively...both cameras must be lifted gently, the adhesive is not that strong but there are some there.
The power and volume flex cable connection to the logic board is near the volume buttons, be extremely careful not to damage the connection when lifting the logic board.
Remove the copper tape surrounding the connection for the digitizer and install new digitizer.
Follow steps in reverse.
Good Luck

Disassemble rear panel, check all ground wires and connectors.

UNPLUG TELEVISION. While off, reseat every connector you can find on the back of the unit (unplug and plug in one at a time every single jack/cable connector you can see).

PLUG IN TELEVISION. With power on, carefully loosen (one quarter to 3/4 turn should do it) and then tighten every screw which has a cable attached to it (ground screws) and see if that fixes the picture as you are tightening the screws.


I had a similar issue as well as blotchy screen and this appeared to have resolved the issues.

Have a delcotron alternator ,what to know where no.1 terminal and no.2terminal wire goes it is on my 1946 cj2a jeep my amp hand does not show a charge had alternator checked out and is ok

  • Use a wrench to remove the negative and positive battery cables: They are clearly labeled "+" and "-." Always remove the negative cable first, as this isolates the power to the metal parts of your car. Tuck the cables away from the battery as you don't want them to accidentally touch a battery terminal when you're wiring your alternator.

  • 3

    Locate the alternator terminals. There are two: one marked "live," "pos" or "+" and the other marked "neg," "field" or "-."

  • 4

    Locate the two cables. The positive (red) cable goes to your battery via a wire loom or harness. The negative (black) cable attaches to a metal part of your car.

  • 5

    Check how the cables attach to the alternator terminals. Some connect using eyelets that hook over the terminal and tighten with a bolt; others connect by inserting the wire under the terminal and tightening a bolt.

  • 6

    Loosen the two bolts using a suitable-sized wrench or, if the cables connect using eyelets, remove the bolts.

  • 7

    Insert the exposed end of the negative (black) cable under the loosened bolt on the negative terminal of the alternator, then tighten the bolt. If the cable has an eyelet, hook it over the terminal and screw the bolt back in place and tighten using a wrench.

  • 8

    Insert the exposed end of the positive (red) cable under the loosened bolt on the positive terminal of the alternator, then tighten the bolt. If the cable has an eyelet, hook it over the terminal and screw the bolt back in place and tighten using a wrench.

  • 9

    Replace the positive battery cable on the positive battery terminal using a wrench. Replace the negative battery cable on the negative battery terminal.

    Whow to replace lamp on tv sony kdf-e60a20

    Follow this procedure to replace the lamp:

    1. Turn off the power on the main unit. Wait several minutes, then unplug
    the power cord.
    (The cooling fan will continue to operate for about two minutes after
    turning the power off.)

    2. Wait at least 30 minutes after unplugging the power cord to allow the
    lamp to cool down before replacing it. To avoid being burned, do not
    touch the lamp receptacle once the lamp has been removed.

    3. Take the new lamp out of the box.
    Do not touch the glass portion of the new lamp.

    ✍ Do not shake the lamp. Vibration can damage the lamp or shorten
    its life.
    ✍ Avoid touching the front glass of a new lamp or the glass of the
    lamp receptacle. This may reduce picture quality or lamp life.

    4. Loosen the screws on the rear side panel.

    5. Remove the front panel.

    6. Pull out the lamp.
    Loosen the right screw on the cover with a coin or similar object.

    Remove the screw from the lamp cover. Pull down the cover toward you.


    Unscrew the lamp and pull out the lamp horizontally.


    ✍ The lamp is very hot immediately after use. Never touch the glass
    portion of the lamp or the surrounding parts.
    ✍ After it has cooled, place the used lamp into the empty box of the
    replacement lamp. Never put the used lamp into a plastic bag.

    7. Place the new lamp into its place, then tighten the screw.
    Mount the new lamp securely. Failure to mount correctly may cause a
    fire or the screen to go dark.


    Push the cover back on. Make sure that the hole on the cover aligns with
    the hole on the unit. Reattach the lamp cover by tightening the screw.


    ✍ If the lamp cover screw is inserted incorrectly, the lamp may not
    operate properly. In such a case, remove the screw, insert it
    correctly and then tighten the screw completely
    ✍ If the lamp cover is not reattached securely, the self-diagnostic
    function may be triggered and the POWER indicator flashes three

    8. Reattach the front panel securely.


    9. Tightly screw the side panel in its place.

    That is it. Thank you.

    How do you adjust the clutch. Mine doesn't completely disengage when I shift gears. Too much play in the clutch handle.

    You need to adjust the clutch cable adjustment for the clutch handle, THEN adjust the clutch itself.

    1.First go to the clutch cable. Halfway down the cable is a rubber boot. Pull the rubber boot up the cable, (Or down. Pull it. Do NOT push), until it clears the adjustment. (The adjustment is a hex shaped piece, that is made of two parts. It's called a Barrel)
    Use a 9/16 inch open end wrench, and a 1/2 inch open end wrench. Loosen the lock nut until you have around 1/16th to 1/8th of an inch clearance, of slack in the handle.
    (Where the clutch lever, touches the clutch lever mount on the handlebars)

    2.Now open the derby cover.
    (The round cover on the back of your primary cover. Not to insult your intelligence. This ->
    <-shows a custom primary inner, and outer cover. The derby cover is the round cover all the way to the right, on this custom primary cover. You can click on the photo to enlarge)

    You will then see a single threaded stud, (Adjuster screw), in the middle of the clutch pressure plate.
    This adjuster screw has a nut on it, to lock the screw from turning. (Jam nut)
    Hold the stud end,(adjuster screw). from turning with a large flat tip screwdriver,
    (May have changed to a small square end, that you use an open end wrench on), loosen the jam nut with an open end wrench.

    Turn the adjuster screw in, until there is 1/8th inch slack of the clutch lever, to the clutch lever mount.
    (The clutch lever mount is the part that attaches to the handlebars. The clutch lever is the part you squeeze in with your hand. The slack is the small space in-between the clutch lever, where it touches the clutch lever mount)

    Now turn the adjuster screw out 1/2 turn. Tighten the jam nut. (Make sure you hold the adjuster screw in that place you set, as you tighten the jam nut. DON'T let the adjuster screw turn as you tighten the jam nut!)

    3.Now tighten the lock nut, (Jam nut), on the adjustment barrel for the clutch cable. You should grease the threads of this adjustment barrel to prevent corrosion in the future. Pull the rubber boot back into place.

    4.Replace the derby cover gasket as these will leak like a sieve. Replacing this gasket is cheap insurance. Install the derby cover, tighten the derby cover screws evenly. (Go to one screw, tighten until it touches. Then go to another screw, and do the same. After all three are touching, snug them down one turn at a time, going from screw to screw)

    This is a thin cover. If you don't tighten the screws evenly, you can cause this thin cover to warp, and be the cause of a constant annoying oil drip.

    There is no happened when i was tightening the power wire

    Hello warpartybmt,

    Sounds like you shorted power to ground. Such a short most likely blew the power fuse.

    You do not say whether you did the original install or if it was performed by an aftermarket audio shop. A normal amp installation usually includes a "primary" fuse located within a few inches of the battery positive (+) terminal. Look for a fuseholder close to the battery and check the fuse. Below is an image of one such fuseholder. Yours may look similar or it may be a "tube" with a glass fuse.

    Hope this helps.
