When the unit is working it is great. however, intermittently the display goes completely blank. the audio still plays but the display is dead. the only way to fix it is to detach/reattach the faceplate. only problem is that all memory functions are now reset (ie station presets, eq presets etc). total pain in the ass.

If you have a blank screen while listening to an audio source (Radio, CD, USB, etc.) the interconnecting ribbon cable that goes from the system board to the display module could be damaged/cracked and needs to be replaced.
Sounds like the ribbon cable inside the unit to the screen has become detached or loosened. May have to pull unit apart carefully to re-attach it. If you go down this path be very gentle as they have a habit of ripping...
grounding the brake wire will allow you to view video while driving but may require an sequence (on off on or whatever it calls for) to turn on video playback so i suggest grounding the wire and putting a small toggle switch on the wire. i have done this in many cars during my strent as a professional car audio installer
Hi. Sound like you have a loose 30 pins connector either at your monitor or hide away unit. Only the best service technician can handle that issue. Try to do it yourself or have some self taught tech to do it and I would bet you 10 to 1 that you will fry it. As a matter of fact the only one whose offer that service is Rick on Ebay. His store name is Same Day Audio Services. He is very reliable and all of his work is guaranteed. It will cost you about $100. If he can't fix it, he won't charge you anything. Good luck.
Mention Hogan from Utah and he might give you a discount.
