You might have a break in the flat ribbon cable that connects the faceplate to the mother board. Those types of cables often get a break in one or more to the traces (wires) that they are made of.

I have a pioneer super tuner III D 50 w x 4 and i cant get the AUX input to work please help

turn the unit off by pressing and holding the off button. The only thing that should be showing then is the time. Then, press and hold the function buttion. This should display the setup menu. Scroll through the menu by pressing the function button (I think). "Aux" should show up and then press up/down or left/right (not sure again). When it says Aux on or yes, turn the unit back on. Press the "source" button until you get to AUX.

Wont stay open

I had load of these units and the cure is simple. You need to replace the ribbon to the faceplate as these get damaged due to wear and tear. Every unit i had with this fault, i fixed by replacing this ribbon. Buy the ribbon and surround as the new surround is a modified one to give extra life to the ribbon. Hope this helps, good luck!

Pioneer deh - p9600mp

An install gone bad. Something is hindering free movement of the face plate open mechanism. Closely inspect the top edge of the bezel, is the face plate trim ( thin plastic ornamental frame covering the ugly aluminium mounting sleeve) snapped securely back in place? has it been fitted upside down?, is it deformed?.

Bad face plate!

It may be the flexible connector link connecting to the drop down faceplate.

Illumination not working when faceplate is open.

Wire braid out to the faceplate has got a parcially broken wire on it. Sony referes to it as a flexible circuit board. Part can be purchased from sony directly, an on a one to 10 scale to replace about a five.But it does involve taking your radio apart. So if you are handy at electronics. you can look it over. If you have doubts let a professional do it.
