Question about Pioneer DEH-P5500MP CD Player

1 Answer

Faceplate DEH-P5500MP My unit and faceplate works perfectly except for the LCD display lites. I can't read anything on the face plate. I had it in its protective case and dropped it. The lites stopped working. I took it apart, played around with it put it back together and it worked fine till I dropped it again. I tried to manipulate it again but no luck! Is there a way to repair this or do I need a new faceplate?

Basically I have the same problem that has been displayed a lot on this site. My pioneer DEH-P7800MP display won't show when the face closes. When the face opens up all the buttons and lights and display...

The faceplate and head unit is is attached via a flat ribbon cable. (Caution only continue if you have some courage). If you open the faceplate you will see that the ribbon cable is seated in too a flat connector on the PCB (Printed Circuit Board). This connector has a locking mechanism on it that when locked presses the contacts of the cable to the connector. Ensure that the cable is seated properly and that the latch or the lock is in the locked position. Assuming that the tension lessons when the unit is closed so it draws away from the connector and when the unit is open it pulls tension creating a contact. If you see no signs of mishap on this end of the connector try the other end.
Hope this helps.

How to reset my DEH-P5000UB, because my display turned off, weird

Re:"everyother light turns on the faceplate but the display is off"

That means that the unit is either faulty, or one of the two powered lines required had not been connected.

The unit is reset by simply disconnecting the connector at the back.

This will not help in fixing the problem.

Ensure that unit is wired properly. Use a voltmeter to test wiring.

Here installation manual with proper wiring.

Here also the owner manual.

None of the buttons on the faceplate seem to work except OFF. The remote works and still can control all functions on the radio. I have read the manual and don't see anything about the faceplate locking or...

Another one with Faceplate buttons not working?

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
