Sounds like a jammed micro-switch, open it up and check for dirt in the loading mech.

Look for a ribbon cable that connects the flip down face back to the main circuit board. It may have a lead that has broken. This is a common problem.

You are correct, the unit powers entirely from the red and yellow leads. Your symptoms sound like a unit that isn't getting power on the red (switched) lead. The most likely cause is a blown fuse in your vehicle's fuse box.

Sony CDX-MP40 won't power up the amp.

Most in-dash stereos have a blue wire in the harness which is used as a "wake up" signal for external amps. Did you connect this? Does it have any voltage on it when the stereo is on?
