Can someone please help me out as my Kenny headunit decided to start smoking last week and I don't mean the Malboro kind!!!
Basically I have a Kenwood KMD-PS971 minidisc HU (with the dolphin graphic display), and while stationary with engine off, a burning smell developed which was kind of like when your tv or other electronic hifi unit is running very hot! Then smoke started emerging from withing the HU, from the gaps in the front. The HU remained working but I switched off straight away as a precaution! (no Sh#t you're thinking!)

Anyway, a day later the stereo returns back to normal operation with other 2 RCA's and amps working fine........BUT on re-connecting my bass box (needed the luggage space), I find that even with the stereo on zero volume the sub is thumping away at a constant rate!! As soon as you turn the stereo on the sub is just thumping loudly!
I fear something has burnt out and causing the sub to act in this way - possibly the sub RCA from the HU?? Or maybe something inside it has burnt out??
