Has it always been like this? I know that the display inverts automatically to save the life of the OEL...otherwise the brightness of the same pixels being on all the time will cause the OEL to 'burn-in' If that isn't the problem, the OEL is going bad. They can run about $100 and usually aren't worth repairing.

    I need to follow up on this.

    No, it is not a problem. With the unit turned off but still receving power through the ignition and battery constant power wires, press the #5 button key and it will disable the screensaver from inverting. I believe it is done to preserve the life of the OEL.

For most older Pioneer single CD players, you can set the clock using the following steps:
  1. Press and hold the SOURCE button until the unit shuts off.
  2. Press and hold SOURCE again until the clock appears.

  3. Press the left or right arrow to select the segment of time you wish to adjust.
  4. Press the up or down arrows to increase or decrease the numbers in the blinking segment.

Pioneer Premier DEH-P730


Pioneer follows standard color coding for stereo/headunit wiring. Pioneer car stereos needs two wires plus the ground wire to be activated. The yellow is connected to the always on B+12 such as the positive terminal of the battery, the red goes to a switched B+12 such as the ACC of the IGN switch while the black of course goes to the chassis/body ground.

Should the above been done correctly and problem persist, then perhaps the fuse may have blown, there is a loose connector at the rear of the head unit or a probable internal electronic defect has developed.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
