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.

Unable to type


Flip the unit on its back and remove the battery.
Next remove the memory and hard drive.
In the memory area, you will find a lit. battery with a white 2 wire plug. Disconnect this plug and flip unit over.
Open the cover and hold down the power button for 30 seconds.
This will clear the BIOS and CMOS settings on the Laptop.
Flip the unit over and install the Hard drive and memory.
Next, plugin the battery connection.
Close unit up and plugin power connection.

Power up the 9000 and see if the keyboard is seen.

Note. You may have a defective or dammaged keyboard and may need to be replaced.
You can use a USB keyboard temp. About $20.00 USD at any Walmart
Hope this works for you.

Pioneer powers off when face plate opens.


My first guess would be that the ribbon cable between the flip face and the mother board has gone bad. This is a very, very common problem. I'd suspect that above everything else at this point.

hi,this unit sounds like one with a motorised face. the problem could be with the flat ribbon cable connection between face and main pc board. chech for cracks alond the body of the ribbon especially where it bends alot. Also try resetting the unit if the unit has a reset switch or reset function.
