The display on my old Pioneer stereo multi CD receiver fades
Pioneer XC-P410M - works well in all respects except the display fades on and off. First power on it is usually on, then after a few moments fades out. A small tap on the display screen brings it back, sometimes. Sometimes stays on for several minutes. Sometimes just pops on and then off. Can I easily remove the front face of the device t see if there is a loose wire or connection.

Re: the display on my old Pioneer stereo multi CD...
The problem is a bad solder connection probably on the display itself. These are not the easiest to open up. I would not suggest you attempt this if you haven't done these before. This is a simple fix for any shop that handles audio repair. Call around for a shop that works on Pioneer gear and request an estimate over the phone. Indicate that the dispaly has bad connections that need to be resoldered. You may find a shop that will repair this for short money. Where are you located? Perhaps I can suggest a shop.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

On the first board (where the power enters) there is a tall 3 pronged switch, if you turn the board over and solder a piece of wire to the 2 outside prongs, you will find that the Amp works normally apart from that the display reads Cd closed when in Cd mode.
