Question about Pioneer DEH-P44 CD Player

How do I get the face plate off the Dual XD7500 CD Player after being installed? I was told to take out the 2 tiny screws in bottom middle of face plate, but my CD Player just has 1 tiny screw and then another bigger screw above this one. Shannon

This is what the manual says:
With the unit off, press OPEN to allow the front panel to slide
down. Gently squeeze the release tab located on the bottom
center underside and pull faceplate down and away from unit
to remove. To install, insert left side faceplate first, then push
right side to secure.

Tried it and couldn't get it out.

Dual CD770 (Same as XDMR7700) face stuck open (down)

Change the Flex cable that connects from main chassis to the front face plate. This is a common problem with Dual drop down face plates, since the flexible wires break and lose connection.

Stereo issues

I'm assuming that you installed the head-unit new and that the faceplate did (at one time) previously slide down the way it was intended to work - is this assumption correct?

Is the molding around the head faceplate (mounting ring) damaged?

Are you sure you're not using the semi-permanent mounting configuration??
(see page 6 of the manual)

This particular unit has the option for a semi-permanent mounting of the face plate. If the two screws are inserted into the sides, it will lock the face plate in to the head unit (have you done that?) - if so, removing the screws will allow the face plate to be removed.

Dual XD7500

there is a corkscrew that opens and closes the face plate, it will get worn down since it made out of plastic, when it wheres down, only have of the screw will have threads, the have of the screw that has threads will let you take the cd in and out, but in order to get the whole face down it needs to use the whold corkscrew, the corkscrew is located on top of the unit, only visible after the top cover is taking off, you'll see it on the right side of the unit, you can try to order one from, its such an easy fix
