No don't throw it away! What happens if it is like mine. The unit sets in the dash, with the windows up, It gets very hot and melts the grease that runs thru the gears. Take the top plate off and get you some grease "I use crisco". Smear a little amount onto the gears and work the small gear right next to the gear that runs verticle. Do that 2 or 3 cycles and put the top back on and its good as new

My pioneer deh-p960mp the screen behind the faceplate went out, what do i need to fix it ??


You need a ribbon cable replacement to the faceplate at the very least.

It's my understanding that there is an ribbon cable that needs to be replaced - it's Pioneer CNP6498 flex cable (CN871 to CN1801) at pacparts.com. Price is less than $9.00, but shipping there is crippling to say the least ($11.50 - WTF??!?!?!)

IF you find that the detachable faceplate also does not work, there is an additional ribbon cable that needs to be replaced. Try "DEH-P960MP" on ebay and you can find a replacement for less than $30 shipped. I received mine in 2 days and had it up and running within 20 minutes. It solved the problem.

due to having a ribbon cable inside the faceplate behind the screen the solders always break in them. it is fixable. but you need to unscrew it open and resolder it.

Not working at all


Its the ribbon cable which connects the faceplate to the main unit.
The bad thing about these types of receivers, is after a lot of flip downs and flip up, the wires in the ribbon cable get weak and break.

If you want to fix it yourself:

I had this same problem, and was able to fix it myself.

Best of luck!!

Pioneer deh-p840mp weird concern


this is a problem that is caused by the ribbon cable that connects the two faces going bad - you can find repair kits for this unit on ebay.. just search DEH-P840MP and you will find "ribbon kits" or repair kits. They are usually about 15 dollars.

Unit powers down when faceplate attempts to go to open position


Same thing happened to me twice.

Its the crappy ribbon cable that connects the faceplate to the head unit.

Its only about $12 (USD) from Pioneer directly.

http://parts.pioneerelectronics.com/part.asp?productNum=GXY1005

It comes with instructions, its not that difficult.




Best of Luck.
