Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

If the DNX series Kenwood device only has a power problem, then it might be easily solved, compared to some sorts of repairs.

In that region, there are these:

Kenwood Hybrid Repair Service

Newport, NJ

Phone(###) ###-####/p>

(this might be a repairer of Hybrid vehicles not Kenwood devices.)

This is likeliest to be able to help you:

Kenwood Service Center New Jersey  


Denville, NJ 07834

Phone: (###) ###-####/p>

Ask for an estimate on the repair cost, once you have gotten in touch with the service center by phone. That will allow you to estimate whether it is really worth it, compared to buying another.

If this answers your question, please rate my answer. A five-star rating would be appreciated!

That's bad news!

I'm sorry to hear that. I am immediately looking up further listings. Thanks for your patience meanwhile...

I hope that one of these can help, and can give you a good reliable estimate on repair costs (which estimates can vary among various repairers, and depending upon the problem... there is no 'exact standard price', otherwise I would quote it to you myself.)

Let me know if there's any problem or if, somehow, none of these can help. There are others, farther away, that are listed.

Im not happy with this service. At some point while waiting I received a message saying a remaing 11 dollars will be paid. I thought this was 5 dollars. I received half ass answers from jump. I am requesting a refund.
Expert:  Russell H. replied 9 months ago.

I have passed your refund request on to Customer Service.

I have no idea why additional charges were mentioned... perhaps it was accompanying an offer of additional services? at a guess.

I have no power myself, over charges, billing, no access to your credit information.
