Faceplate won't open all the way


Sometimes the mechanism is misplaced, just disassemble that mechanism and turn on radio without the secondary plate and wait until the motor to get to the final position when it turns off again, reassemble.

I have a sony mp3 xplod car radio, buttons wont work on it to operate probaly, any suggentions as to what is wrong?


I had the same problem with my sony CDX-GT540UI and solved it! I just kept clicking the "source/off" button when the display was showing the demo and suddenly it started switching to USB/CD/AUX etc. This means that the contacts inside the micro-switch were stuck in the down position, continuously making contact, and blocking the signals from the other buttons. Have to replace the micro-switch now.

Kenwood KRC-x858 stuck halfway between closed and open


have the exact same problem. I called the Kenwood tech line and the tech reported that the ribbon cable2_bing.gif is probably broke. It is the flex cable between the head unit and the rotating face plate. He said it's not an expensive fix but we would need to mail it to a service center if you're like me and not near one. I just replaced mine with a new unit. It was about time anyways.

CD RESET


to fix this problem you have to take the face plate off. There should be a small button on the middle-left side that sais "reset" on it. Get a ballpoint pen and press this button. Pop the face plate back on and play your CD and it should work no problem.

Pioneer powers off when face plate opens.


My first guess would be that the ribbon cable between the flip face and the mother board has gone bad. This is a very, very common problem. I'd suspect that above everything else at this point.

Head Unit problem


Go to Sony.com and search out the user manual. Most of these units have a reset button for just these types of issues. The reset button is usually behind a tiny hole that you need to insert a paper clip into. You can also try disconnecting tthe ground from the car battery and reconnecting it. That could cause the radio to reset.

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.

Illumination not working when faceplate is open.


Wire braid out to the faceplate has got a parcially broken wire on it. Sony referes to it as a flexible circuit board. Part can be purchased from sony directly, an on a one to 10 scale to replace about a five.But it does involve taking your radio apart. So if you are handy at electronics. you can look it over. If you have doubts let a professional do it.
