Question about Pioneer DEH-P3500 CD Player

2 Answers

Buttons do not work on face plate but CD and volume dial do

All I can do is put in a CD and let it play through, I cannot switch tracks or switch to radio, all I can do is adjust the volume. If I take the CD out the head unit powers off, anyone had this problem?

    Yes, the same thing happened to me recently. How old is yours? I think I got mine in early 2005. It sounds like Pioneer rigs these things to break down after 3-4 years.

    No, this happened instantly. As if the power or a connection to all the buttons all at once was severed. the only thing that works is the volume but that is a rheostat and it must not be tied in with the rest of the controls.

    My unit is pretty new. Are you sure that's the only solution? I had heard there was a security code that needs to be put in in order to unlock the system, but I don't know what the code is.

    exactly the same issue. the only way to turn it on is to put a cd in and you can't even switch tracks. only the volume. i tried pulling the fuse, but nothing works. i want to hear more about this code thing though, sounds promising

I had the exact same problem and after searching and googling, I figured out that maybe the buttons were jammed in the the D pad part where you change the songs and stuff.. so I took it and fiddled with thebuttons and still no go, so then I pulled a Fonz and punched it because I was angry and it worked so it shook something loose,so I think it's locking up because somewhere in the cursor part is jammed and needs to be undone

The problem your having is from the buttons wearing out over time and the only way to fix the problem is to replace the face plate or the whole radio.

It sounds like the volume button may be jammed or the volume up switch may be bad. If the switch is open just enough to let some voltage through it locks up the microprocessor. Unless you have a multimeter and know how to check resistance on a switch you would be better having a professional repair person check it out.

It sounds to me like you may have a bad volume control switch. Unless you are good at unsoldering and soldering, I would suggest you have it repaired by a professional. Either that or see if you can find a replacement face at a pawnshop or something like that.

Help pioneer dehp6700mp front panel stopped working CD player plays if a disk is inserted. The tracks play sequentially, but only the volume on the front panel accepts input.


you can try cleaning the contacts of the face and subpanel with qtips and rubbing alcohol or a pencil eraser. if that doesn't work, you may have a bad switch.

Another one with Faceplate buttons not working?


The capacitors in these plates tend to burn out quickly for being so hot and lack of air cooling circulation. You can test all connection pins on the deck and faceplate with an ohmmeter in ohm setting to see which pins is not sending 25-30 ohms or 5 volts of power

Clock set


To set the time press and hold the select button in the centre of the volume dial until the word demo appears on the screen. From here you can change the time by pressing the next track >>I button to select clock h. Use the use the volume dial to select the hour. Use the next track button >>I to select clock m and use volume dial to set the minute. This same procedure can be used to change the dimmer on/off, demo on/off and the amp gain. Have a play around. Hope thjis helped.

Hey jshaff, try taking off the detachable front, and you will see a reset button, press and hold in for 10 secs, this should solve your problem. if it doesn't work first time keep trying. you must have power to the head unit for this to work. you will hear the cd make a noise and that should be that, try and let me know.

Yes, I'm sure Alpine will sell you another face but there is still the option of repairing the broken face at a good repair shop. Of course getting a new face is the easiest (read most expensive) way to get you going again.
