I have had this deck since December 06 when it first came out. Retail was around a grand but with an employee discount price was only three hundred. For whatever reason the motorized face does not work well when the interior gets hot. I do believe it is a defect in the deck. If your deck can be returnded get rid of it. I originally thought the problem was due to low voltage going through the deck, but it has nothing to do with that. People will inform you to replace a ribbon on the unit, but really why bother, more than likely it will fail again.
P.S. if the unit does partially open you can still force it the rest of the way. I did this by pushing the face up while it was trying to rotate. Mind you I only resorted to this due to bring sick of the current cd, and I was on the way to installing another deck. If the deck will continue to work after forcing it open numerous times, i do not know.

Faceplate


That open button should take the whole faceplate off too. Try pulling it from the bottom. hope this is of help. What model of pioneer is it? Mosfet is just the kind of internal amp it uses.
hope it helps!

Unit opens and closes on its own


I think I got the second half of the solution for this problem. Please look at post "Unit powers down when motorized face opens" for a solution. Seems like we need to buy the ribbon that connects to the face plate to fix this problem.

Alot, of the radios have a common problem with the connection from the radio's detachable face. What happens is corrosion builds up on the connectors between the pin and the connector itself. Sometimes you can clean it off with a small file. Also, some KENWOODS with the motorized face are known to have a problem with the ribbon cable connecting the face plate to the main board. The last time I repaired one I called KENWOOD and aquired the cable for about 65 dollars, what the problem is, is the cable is wrapped around a plastic white spindel with a high tension spring and places alot of pressure on the cable from the wear and tear of the face opening and it will cause strange problems such as: turning on and off, some buttons working while others don't, and the display partially turning on and off.

The face won't open


Can you pull the face out? If there is no sound at all coming from the head unit (besides the beep) there's a good chance the gear motor that controls the movement of the face is stuck or burnt. Now if there's a clicking sound, the gears may skipping which can be wear'n tear or misaligned gears. I wouldn't call you player done for though. I would take it out, inspect the motorized face machanism and post what you see.
