I was just wondering why my pioneer radio is actiing real funny lately? For instance I try to get my face plate to the closed position by pushing the open button but it tells me a display message of mic in. I also try to eject my cd and displays the same message mic in. If anyone can help that would be great, and yes I did push the reset button and nothing.

Sometimes the mechanism is misplaced, just disassemble that mechanism and turn on radio without the secondary plate and wait until the motor to get to the final position when it turns off again, reassemble.
First thing that I would try is to reset the radio. To do this, you would want to press the reset button (located behind the faceplate) using a bent paperclip or a ball-point pen. If this type of reset (soft reset) doesn't work, then you want to disconnect constant power from the radio (hard reset). This can be done by removing the power fuse for the radio or disconnecting the negative terminal of the car battery for about 15 seconds. Start with those two methods. Beyond that, you may have a bad faceplate and/or a bad unit and it would need to be sent to Pioneer Electronics or an electronics repair technician. For repair estimates, I recommend visiting an authorized Pioneer retailer in your area.
No with out the faceplate which has the main control module for the unit there is no way to run this unit. The face of the deck actually has some value. An you couldnt even find a face plate if you wanted to. If i were you just go online and buy a 40$ jvc or something there super cheap and have all the same features as that model an more like usb flash drive attachemen and audio inputs. An if it gets stolen it wont matter as much cause its only a 40$ deck.
The capacitors in these plates tend to burn out quickly for being so hot and lack of air cooling circulation. You can test all connection pins on the deck and faceplate with an ohmmeter in ohm setting to see which pins is not sending 25-30 ohms or 5 volts of power
I have the same problem. There's a little ribbon cable behind the contacts for the faceplate. It gets folded as the face plate motors in and out and eventually breaks like mine did. I'm fixing it tonight and then I will disable the motorization. Followed by NEVER BUYING A PIONEER AGAIN. I reccomend you do the same.
