Buy a ribbon power cord off ebay for your model. Approx 28.00 US and 45 min fix do it your self. Best part about this is it fixes your problem. Esrunyzarc

Re: screen will not open

I have the same problem and found it is the ribbon cable to the faceplate holder. As the plate folds down it breaks the connection in the bad part of the cable and the deck doent see the faceplate, thinks it's been removed and begins to close. As it is closing the ribbon cable straightens and makes connection again. Hope this helps. Kkarma

I own the the Pioneer DEH-P9800BT and my screen will not come on. if i press the eject button the screen will come on when its open, when i press it again to shut it the screen goes blank. I have no idea...

You will get this problem when the printed ribbon is slightly cut because of the repeated opening and folding of the screen. Eventually, the ribbon will be cut to the point that you won't get any sort of response when pushing any of the buttons on the faceplate. Order this part number and replace it. P/N:XNP7026. You can get one from Ebay that already has the connector plate soldered on, if you do not have any experience with soldering to printed circuits. Connecting it is fairly straight forward. Remove the top plate of the receiver, 4 screws securing the cd-unit, unlatch the ribbon (paying close attention to how the ribbon was routed). Reroute new printed ribbon and reassemble the unit in reverse order. Good luck, hope this helps because I was rather upset when mine failed.

I also had this problem and the solution was to change the data bus, or if you want, you can pull out a little the data bus.

Hi William,

The gear is proabaly slipping on the motors shaft. You will have to carefuly open up the head unit and get to the motor to see if it is a slipping gear or linkage broken. If it is the gear slipping on the motor shaft, then glue it back. Hopefully it is not damaged beyond repair.

Pioneer powers off when face plate opens.

My first guess would be that the ribbon cable between the flip face and the mother board has gone bad. This is a very, very common problem. I'd suspect that above everything else at this point.
