The Face cover is snapped in, so you need to use a small flat tipped screwdriver  and run it around the black and silver plastic cover, and it should snap off. Take Your Time!

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.

Ribbon cable broken and now cannot open the face plate


You need to take the unit apart to fix the cable since the other end of it plugs into the board inside, it's pretty easy to take apart though. Good luck!

Cannot eject or turn off power on my pioneer deh-p8600mp


when you take the unit out of your car and looking at the top of the unit there are two black screws. Remove those then remove the entire cd player cage by the 4 CHROME screws on the four corners of the cage the two in the front are in the two holes in the ver front (**use magnetic screw driver for this**) then disconect the two wire plug and the ribbon cable from the bottom of the cd player cage **BE GENTLE** there are two black tabs on either side of the ribbon cable. THEY ONLY MOVE ABOUT 1/8TH ON AN INCH using a jewler flat blade screw driver gently slide the clip out to un crimp the ribbon cable then once the cage is removed you can open the face. To open the face there is a white gear wheel on the rightn hand side of the unit you can rotate it with your thumb with a little effort. Rotate accordingly..... at that point you shouldnt have any problem but let my know if you do..

I have a CDX-M8815X unit only works with remote commander


The problem is the ribbon cable,the one connects the face to the main board,if you live in USA you can order it from pacparts.com or sony.com.
For replace it you will need to open the unit and open the face by moving manually the gears,then remove the side screws of the face and remove face,then remove the cd mech. you will see the ribbon connector.Just replaced and put everthing back togheter.
Good luck

Replacing the facepale


that hole on that model is for a locking screw, the locking screw is installed to minimize theft and for other precautions. If the face plate is having any odd reactions its normally do to the flex cable. The best sign for a dying or dead flex cable is at the joint. The joint can be viewed at the point when you remove the face plate. Immediately after pulling the face plate off look behind the pivoting frame at the orange colored ribbon, you should only be able to see a small portion of it. If there is any sign of a yellowy residue its a sign that the protective covering of the ribbon is deteriorating. A bad flex cable is everything on the moving face plates.

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.

The ribbon cable is a VERY common problem on these units. Mine went out and I picked up a replacement cable on ebay for under $20. If you are at all mechanically inclined, you can replace it yourself fairly easily. It is a little scary to look at your stereo in a bunch of pieces on the table, but is really an easy fix. Take the flip-face off of the main unit and you will see the ribbon that connects it to the main box. You will need to take the face place apart (it comes into 3 pieces, the front back and middle). When you see where the ribbon connects inside the face, pull back the little clips on the side and slide that end of the cable out. Mine did not look broken, but replacing it fixed the problem. Take the top off of the main unit, and unscrew the disk drive. Once unscrewed it will lift right out (it is plugged in on the bottom so just pull straight up until it comes free). Once you have that out of the way you will see the ribbon. This end is a little trickier. It is wound around a little spring that lets it in and out as the face moves. Look carefully at how it winds through the spring - you will need to put the new one in the same way. (it may help to take a pic of it to reference when you put the new one in) Unclip this end of the ribbon like you did the first. The new one needs to go into the main unit first. Install this the same way you removed the old one, around the spring, and through the slot that will connect it to the faceplate. Connect the other end to the face, then put the face back together and reconnect it to the unit. Replace the disk drive and the top of the unit, and you are done. Its pretty self explanitory when you are doing it, just take it apart till you see the ribbon, then put it back together the way it came apart. It's fairly easy, but be honest with yourself. If you are not good at mechanical issues, have someone help you. Good luck!

Flip Down faceplate is stuck.


I have the same problem, and all my problem was is that one of the wheels were out of place. You can see these white gears at the bottom left and right. Just stick something in there and push it back in place. It should just snap back in.

Face Plate


If this is a "flip face" type of display then you may have a broken lead in the ribbon cable that connects to the main board from the flip face. This is a very common problem. You'll need to replace that ribbon cable.
