First symptom: unit would turn off when channel "0" button pushed; then unit began not staying powered up when power button was pushed.
checked cig. lighter - all ok.
put unit into a home unit (ac to dc power transformer) - powered up a couple of times, then turned itself off; now won't power up at all.
unit is approx. 2+ years old.
You have a bad power plug on the unit. The solder connection are loose. The one have is doing the same thing. The power plug pins have came lose and need to be resolder. Working on how to take the unit apart to solder the connection.

For clock turn key on and stereo off. Press and hold the function button for 3-5 seconds. the clock should appear with the hours flashing. Use the up-down buttons to set hours. Push the right button to set the minutes. Now turn on the stereo with the source (or power) button and your done!
Remember key on stereo off. hold function, the rest will become second nature once you've done it a few times.
Tuner pre-sets are super easy. Tune to the station you want and then just hold the # button (1-6) that you want that station on for about 3 seconds. The channel your on, (e.i 104.9) will flash a couple of times and then stop flashing. When it stops flashing it's in the memory. Tune your next channel and hold # 2,3,4,5,6, If 6 isn't enough push BAND and your on FM-2 with 6 more pre-sets, Push it again for FM-3 with 6 more presets. Push it a 3rd time for the AM band with 6 pre-sets and one more time to get back to FM-1.
I have the same radio, the Pioneer DEH-10MP, bought at BestBuy. Anyway, the instruction manual is completely wrong, as you already know. The solution that worked for me is:
1) turn off the radio. 2) Push and hold the power button down (the dial). DON'T release the button. 3) The unit will display the time on the lcd screen with the numbers flashing, (only hr or min). 4) use the up/dwn, right/left buttons to set the clock. 5) turn off the unit by pushing the power button (again, the dial).
Sounds like you have intermittent contact between the constant 12v and the ACC 12v power inputs. Remove the head unit, and make sure that the connections are properly insulated. (using inline **** connectors preferably)
Turn the ignition key to on or accessory position, turn the stereo off, then hold the function key for a couple seconds, the stereo will turn on and you scroll through the menu with the left and right arrow buttons and change settings with the up and down buttons
