Deck won't power up, but still lowers & raises faceplate.. what's wrong?
Deck was working fine until last monday, now it wont power up. But power is still runnin to the deck because the faceplate lowers and raises with the Open button.. but clock doesnt come on, deck doesnt light up.. none of the buttons do anything other than the eject button that lowers and raises the faceplate.

Sounds like you have jammed linkages which raise and lower deck, you can try this which usually works best with assistant.
With engine off, shake the deck vigorously (up,down, back and forth) while try to raise deck with lever.
Check for worn or damaged arms, springs, deck mounting points, etc and repair or replace.
Its either the switch or the window regulator. They all 'live' on the passenger side by the way. I have had both replaced on passenger side over the years on my '88 convertible and guess what? Passenger side window decided not to go up today..down yes..up no so I hope its just a switch. She goes into the hospital Monday. Good luck with yours.
It would help immensely if you would tell us what make and model radio you are talking about. Judging by your problem though, I would say it is probably a bad flexible cable that goes from the face to the main motherboard.
To adjust a Craftsman deck, raise the deck to the normal cutting height.
Measure to the flange on the deck on the right & left sides. It is easier to lower the deck than to raise it, so, on the high side, find the threaded rod that supports the deck. Using a wrench, back off of the nut (counterclockwise as viewed from the end of the rod) until both the left & right sides of the deck are the same height.
Be sure your tires are properly inflated before measuring.
the new face plate needs to be coded to the deck. with the face on you need to press and hold presets #1 and #3 at the same time. keep on holding and press reset continue to hold #1 and #3 until the unit is in all lighting mode. press AM button one time. p-rom ok will display. press and hold #6 and reset at the same time. continue to hold until display comes on.
There should be two threaded rods with a nut on them that goes from the frame to the deck. Check the height of each blade and which ever side is out of balance you can disconnect that sides rod (usually held onto the mount with a clip or cotter pin) and turn the rod to either raise or lower your deck until it is level.
The above was for leveling your deck.
If you just need to raise or lower the deck depends on if you have a lever on the right side with a push button on top just depress the push button and push forward to lower or pull back to raise.
It might have a round knob that you turn to raise or lower.
