Replacing the facepale

How do I go about replacing the faceplate ?

I got the stereo used and it opens/shuts with some help and plays music so I figured I would replace the faceplate.
I can see that the top left pin to the FP has the tip broke off.

I dont have the manual to read so I dont know how to remove the faceplate.

TIA for any help.

    Guess I'll answer my own question in case someone else has the same problem.





    I located the manual at Kenwood USA (online).

    It was not correct it says Holding the center of the faceplate, pull it out during the period which you have set in the "Time setting for removing the faceplate" in the menu.

    When removing the faceplate, pull it out only when it is fully open.



    Well you can pull on it if you like but you wont get it off the head unit.

    When the faceplate is open during the time setting you need to use something like a paper clip and stick it in the hole on the bottom edge of the face plate and slide it to the side.

    The faceplate will now come right off, just as it should.

That hole on that model is for a locking screw, the locking screw is installed to minimize theft and for other precautions. If the face plate is having any odd reactions its normally do to the flex cable. The best sign for a dying or dead flex cable is at the joint. The joint can be viewed at the point when you remove the face plate. Immediately after pulling the face plate off look behind the pivoting frame at the orange colored ribbon, you should only be able to see a small portion of it. If there is any sign of a yellowy residue its a sign that the protective covering of the ribbon is deteriorating. A bad flex cable is everything on the moving face plates.

Music has become more mobile than ever before, as numerous devices can store and play music on-the-go. Companies have developed car audio decks that incorporate USB ports in the faceplate. This allows flash drives to be plugged into the deck, and music on the drive to be played. Flash drive format issues are minimal, considering nearly all flash drives are formatted in the FAT32 file system by default. FAT32 is readable by any operating system, or stereo deck with a USB por

Determine if the stereo deck in the vehicle is capable of playing music off a USB flash drive. Read the stereo deck user's manual, or inspect the deck faceplate for a USB port. Plug a USB flash drive into an available USB port on a computer. Check the drive to make sure there is enough available space for music files. Using Windows, double-click the desktop icon labeled "My Computer." Right-click the flash drive icon, and select "Properties." Capacity will be shown. Using Mac, click the flash drive icon once it appears on the desktop. Click "File" in the top menu bar, then click "Get Info." A dialog box appears, and capacity is listed. Drag and drop any desired music files onto the flash drive. Be sure the files are in .mp3 format. Although some stereo decks are capable of playing other music types, the .mp3 extension is universal and all decks will play it. Spend a short amount of time organizing the files into folders. Organize by genre, artist, or create mixed playlists. Selecting music while driving will become much less distracting. Close the drive window, and safely eject the flash drive from the computer. Plug the flash drive into the stereo deck of the vehicle. Select the USB port as the music source, via the stereo deck. Read the manufacturer's user manual if unsure of how to change the source. Adjust the volume, listen, and enjoy. Hope this helps.

My car stereo shuts off while driving and playing


if you have had the head unit for long, it might be over heating and going into safe mode so it doesn't get to hot. This happened to my amp and i never did anything until it stopped working all together. so my guess would be just to get another head unit or get some type of cooling system.

Accidently removed the tiny screws behind faceplate


It could just be a plastic clip that broke.Most of the car stereo's ive taken apart only have a thin ribbon of wires that run into the contacts that your face plate connects to.If you actually took screws out of the faceplate then id put them back in and put it back into your stereo and see if it illuminates properly,if it does not then id search on E-BAY or contact pioneer and buy a replacement but most the time it would be cheaper to just buy new stereo.You might want to be more specific with the area you took screws out of,the way im reading it sounds like you unscrewed the screws in the face dock, not the faceplate.Hope this helps.
