    I have a friends car stereo here (Kenwood KVT-729DVD). He somehow managed to damage the connector, I can easily solder a new one on but i cant seem to locate one, if anyone could give me a name for the connector i would be grateful. :)

    i doubt they will! and if anything, it will be cheaper from them as they buy in bulk..
    they will warn you about voiding warrantys etc though i bet.. but such is life :)

    OOO question: have you got the mating connector?
    if you post a picture of that ill see if it jogs some memories.. some of the connectors used are noticable by style or even minute lettering (e.g.: hirose connectors on the ipod touch screens.. noticed them as soon as i opened up.. but thats not the point)

    While I do not agree with chrisw, I have no idea what that connector is called.
    I just wanted to cast my vote for "OEM prices are outrageous!"

    Maybe not... The OEM will charge you a crazy price if they even sell it to you at all. I'd suspect that might even be a custom connector..
    I'd start by looking at TE.com There its a good chance its one of their connectors.. If you can open up the radio you might be able to at least find a company name on it.

    itll be quite difficult to remove in any case.. 25 pins, through hole.. id be nervous :p still think the mating half would be helpful :)
    and yeh ok, maybe they might charge through the nose.. but we dont know if they dont get contacted:D

    Back when I did some car stereo stuff I found Crutchfield to be an excellent source of connectors, both for the stereo end and the car end.

    I think I see 26 pins, but chris is going to think I'm just disagreeable if I post it here. Can somebody else tell him for me and pretend you figured it out? Either that or count the pins and tell me I'm wrong.
