PIONEER PREMIER DEH-P850MP

CANNOT ACCESS REAR FACE PLATE WHEN I PUSH THE OPEN BUTTON FRT FACE PLATE OPENS AND CLOSES OVER AND OVER UNTIL I PRESS RESET. IT OPENS TO THE POSITION THAT IT OPENS TO WHEN LOADING OR EJECTING A CD BUT CLOSES RIGHT BACK. MY MAIN ISSUE IS NOT BEING ABLE TO FINE TUNE AUDIO OR CLOCK. ALL AUDIO CONTROLS ARE ON REAR FACE PLATE.

    when i press the open button it folds half way down then turns off and goes back up and it just keeps doing it over and over till i reset it.

    When it opens, does it turn off, and then close, then turns on and opens, and then repeats?

    If that that is the case, then the same as: http://www.fixya.com/support/t1759729-no...
    "Its the ribbon cable which connects the faceplate to the main unit.
    Thebad thing about these types of receivers, is after a lot of flip downsand flip up, the wires in the ribbon cable get weak and break.

    If you want to fix it yourself:

    I had this same problem, and was able to fix it myself.

    Best of luck!!"

SOURCE: Pioneer DEH-P4000 DFS Alarm driving me crazy

How to disarm DFS alarm How to disarm DFS alarm Disarming alarm Upon entering your vehicle and within the ENTRY DELAY TIME set within the DFS alarm Menu, attach your Pioneer Detachable face. If you have forgotten the Detachable Face Panel: If the STARTER DISABLE is ON, insert the ignition key in the ignition within the ENTRY DELAY TIME, then turn the key from OFF to ON 5 times within 1 minute. If the starter disable is OFF, insert the ignition key in the ignition and turn the key from OFF to ON within the ENTRY DELAY TIME. CAUTION: If the starter motor will not run, the cause may be the DFS alarm. To check whether the DFS alarm is cause, try switching the position of the switch installed according to the AVOIDING TROUBLE section of the installation manual. If the DFS alarm is the cause of the trouble, then the starter motor will run. In case, confirm DFS alarm operation in safe place. If there is no problem, switch back to its original position. If left at the newly switched position, some functions of the DFS alarm will not operate. If the starter motor will not run after switching the switch, something other than the DFS alarm may be causing the problem. Have the vehicle checked at a nearby dealer. ----------------------------------------------- Select the DFS alarm feature ON/OFF mode (alarm ) in the initial setting menu. Press the arrow (up) button to switch the DFS alarm feature ON. Press the arrow (down) button to deactivate the DFS alarm feature. Press FUNCTION button for 2 seconds to enter the DFS alarm setting menu These are a couple of things I found to fix this problem. Here is the link that I got them from: http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/pna/v3/pg/support/knowledgebase/0,,2076_310069579,00.html Hope this helps:) Jason

Check the ribbon cable on the inside that connects the two parts.

You will need to remove the faceplate and open up the Rear of the unit.
If you bought it used, theres a good chance that the ribbon is in fact broken. If its new, check the connections on the ribbon cable.

It is a chronic problem with most all PIONEER units that fold down / out.



Best of Luck.

Faceplate won't open all the way


Sometimes the mechanism is misplaced, just disassemble that mechanism and turn on radio without the secondary plate and wait until the motor to get to the final position when it turns off again, reassemble.

Pioneer premier deh-p880 prs faceplate opens when you turn car off


The face folds down to give you the option to remove the face if you want. It will return to the upright position a few seconds later whether you remove the face or not. There should be a tab on the underside of the face you can push should you decide to detach the face from the chassis.

Wont stay open


I had load of these units and the cure is simple. You need to replace the ribbon to the faceplate as these get damaged due to wear and tear. Every unit i had with this fault, i fixed by replacing this ribbon. Buy the ribbon and surround as the new surround is a modified one to give extra life to the ribbon. Hope this helps, good luck!

Pioneer deh - p9600mp


An install gone bad. Something is hindering free movement of the face plate open mechanism. Closely inspect the top edge of the bezel, is the face plate trim ( thin plastic ornamental frame covering the ugly aluminium mounting sleeve) snapped securely back in place? has it been fitted upside down?, is it deformed?.

Nothing works


try taken face plate off if detachable then put back on sounds like the face plate clip might be weak and or missing spring inside
but if face plate stays attached just need to clean and put back on right to deck no easy way to say that

Unit opens and closes on its own


I think I got the second half of the solution for this problem. Please look at post "Unit powers down when motorized face opens" for a solution. Seems like we need to buy the ribbon that connects to the face plate to fix this problem.
