No Display When Face Is Put On Unit

At night i take the face off the unit and leave the face inside all night. My truck stays outside in the cold overnight and in the morning when i get in and put the face on the unit, the unit turns on and works but there is no display on the screen. It seems like there is a cold connect with the prongs because about 5-10 mintues later when the truck warms up it seems to work fine with no problems..... Just wondering if this is a common issue or if you have heard of this situation with anybody else... If you know of a way to fix it, let me know i would appreciate it alot.... Thanks, Jordan

Re: No Display When Face Is Put On Unit

The same sort of thing happens to my unit.. try cleaning the electrical contacts on the back of the face-plate and the front of the "bare" head unit. Be careful not to bend any of the pins. a pencil eraser works well to get light oxidation up.. you can go over the contacts with a q-tip and some alcohol to do a final cleaning also.. make sure the car is off while you do this. Also, with my face plate, if the display is off after attaching it, pushing on the right side of it (gently but firmly) will get the lights and display to come on.. it seems to stay lit after I do that. hope it helps.

Unit face will not stay closed

Legacy does NOT sell any sort of repair parts and, therefore, there is no way to repair any problem with that unit. Sorry.

JVC KD-AVX1. The head unit will not "turn on" when the power button is pushed. The display just stays off. The face lights up when you press the eject button and opens up and you are able to feed...

is this a headunit you have just installed? if not then I am not sure, but if it is, try swapping the red and yellow wires over. One should have permanent live, the other should be switchable. (unless you want the headunit to stay on when the ignition is off, in which case put them both to a permenant live feed.)
Hope this helps.

I have a dual CD770 and every time i push the button to open the face plate,it wil start to open then immediatley close. how do i fix that? I own a 1997 Ford F150 Lariot EXT.CAB

You need to replace the ribbon cable that goes from location CN501 on the main board inside the unit to the face plate docking station. I have the had the same problem with mine for the last year and it finally broke. I just sent a quote request for the cable to dual.

Make sure the face of the radio is completely unobstructed. If anything blocks it, the disc will not eject. Another tip is to take a CD while the door is oped and insert it into the unit part way to "trick" the unit into thinking a disc is being loaded. Then unit may be confused and thinks that no disc is inside the radio. Also, disconnecting constant power for at least 15 seconds will often reset the unit.

No display on faceplate unless I push on it

Three possible faults. Irst choice would be connector on radio you see when faceplate is removed may have some oxidation on pins. Sometimes with a small fine point file or dental pick you can try to scrape off any visible oxidation use caution not to bend any pins and be sure radio has no power . 2nd choice could be worn flex cable that connects to main p.c.b. and Third is chassis that keyboard connects to may be slightly bent causing a bad connection. I have a PDF service manual if you need it

You do have both parts of this unit? The Display unit and the (brain) Hide away unit. If so try resetting the unit. it is located behind a tiny hole on the face plate. Just above the right knob.
