KW-AVX710 Screen stays black (off) untill I hit the open button

So I decided to verify all the connections after I got frustrated with it. Everything was correct except one wire that was on the new harness I got that for my car that was labeled "12V fused" (supposedly the key on power source). I tested it with my volt meter and it did not have power at any time, even with the key on. The constant power source wire was hooked up so that's why I was able to open the face and eject CD's and DVD's but not do anything else (like when your ignition is off). So I ran a new wire from my fuse panel and everything works now. Just like my Thermodynamcis professor says "nullius in verba" (take no one's word for it), just because the wire was labeled doesn't mean it's right! Hope this helps.....

i have the same problem with my unit. there is a way to reset the screen so it starts to come out again as i have done it 3 times before. i forgot the exact method but it involves the "rear" "band" and "reset" buttons. i found this out through calling pioneer canada tech support and i will call them again on monday when they open.

AVIC-N1 opens to blanks screen and none of buttons work

It is probably the ribbon cable that you can see when the screen closes. This is a known problem and the part is sometimes hard to find. But is available.

Touch screen not responding correctly

have the avh 5700 should be close to the same unit. try holding the two center buttons on deck [boost and arrow button] i think then without releasing them push the reset button with a pen ,the screen will close then reopen now let go of buttons should be in the right menu on the first item dont trace the extreme edge come in a little then the second item on the menu screen is the touch section just touch the little plus button on screen if still off try tracing first screen little further from edge. this should fix problem

DUAL XDVD8181 car unit - motorized TFT screen won't come out!

Open it again and check the ribbon cable for cracks, the one that get drag in and out every time it open and close. Because it is a defect for Pioneer too, and Pioneer would replace it free. Goodluck.

I changed my car battery and since then the DVD screen won't open ...

You may have blown a fuse when you changed to battery. You might want to check the back of the player for a blow fuse, you may also want to check your cars fuse panel.

It won't open or close

There is a plasic cover that goes over the gear behind the screen on the left side. Take a look at that, it might be jammed in the gear prventing it from open or close.
