Pioneer DEH-P4700MP... Face Panel Blinks

The digital lcd panel (detachable) is most of the time ok... but with touch of finger on any of the buttons specially to the right side it turns the lcd screen completely off while CD/radio is still playin but there will be no remote access to the player... but with messin n playin around with it it comes back on quickly...why is this how can i fix it... they gave me an external case with the player... didnt look more than a cosmetic piece to me while installing the system (since i installed it myself) and also it would not fit my vehicles dash design... it may be cuz of that which led to the panel gettin a lil loose after 2 years of use! tho i still am confused what to do next to fix this problem!

Re: Pioneer DEH-P4700MP... Face Panel Blinks

Yeah, the faceplate isn't making good contact with the rectagular (rectangular metal connector the faceplate connects to electronically). My best suggestion is to try to remount the unit so the faceplate fits more precisely, or cleaning the metal contacts with a pink rubber eraser like that found on a regular #2 pencil. Rubbing alcohol might also be a viable agent for cleaning the contacts.

I have an pioneer deh p4700mp and when i try to change things on the face plate it wont let me the only thing i can change is the voulome the voulome knob is the only thing that works

Take the faceplate off and check the metal contacts on the deck and on the rear of the faceplate... Make sure they are clean and all intact..
You can use a soft pencil eraser to clean the metal contacts.. see if this improves things.

Replaced my battery noew my pioneer cd player won't work is there a reset button?

pull your face plate completely off, look for a small indented hole that you can fit the tip of a pen in. note(its not on the back of the face plate) on the actual head unit. make sure while doing this that your vehicle is started or at least in acc position

My Pioneer DEH-P4700MP keep resetting when car switched off

Did you use a harness to connect the wires?
Could be the power line (red) is connect to the ACC (Accessory) orange line, so every time you switch off the vehicle the power to the stereo is interrupted.

Set the clock

From what I can remember you need to shut off the stereo by holding down the source button and then hold down the function button until the settings come up. The keep hitting function until the time setting appears
