The lower panel where all the buttons are does not light up while the unit is closed (ex. a cd is playing.)

however, when I open it to eject a CD, the panel lights up just fine.

What could the problem be? Is the HU already beginning to die on me? I bought it just a little over a year ago... :-(

The cable is cheap. You or any electronics repair shop can replace it. If it is still under warranty, then contact kenwood.
