WTF is going on...

I have had no problems with this unit up until about 4 months ago. It all started when the unit lost almost all of the default wallpapers that come with the unit (the racecar, the pyramids, the surfer, etc.) I also could not get the two screensavers to play either. Then after this happened I would turn my truck on and the unit would sometimes turn on sometimes not, I thought at the time that it might have been the cold or something like that. Then I thought it had fixed itself minus the missing pics, but when I would go to open the face it would continuously shift up and down and never stop until I pressed the open button at the right time. I consulted the online manual and it said the if anything was going wrong basically, to press the reset button and everything will fix itself, wrong! By doing that my subs will not work, all of my settings have been erased (can't get to any of the menus because of the "open" button thing recycling itself) and I get to listen to my music with just the mids and highs!?! Then if all was not bad enough my unit started to eat my cd's in that it would not eject any of the cd's I put into it( the only way I got them out was with a needle nose plier!) Finally, in the end it would just turn off whenever it felt like it, sometimes for days, then it would turn back on. I took it out of the dash and called pioneer, conviently my 2yr warrenty was up by like 3 months and there are no repair shops over in europe(I'm stationed in Germany)that deal with this model. If there is anyone that knows what the hell is going on please let me know! Thanks.

The microprocessor has gone bad. Pioneer does not sell their micro's individually so it's basically unrepairable unless you can obtain a P960MP with a good main pcb and swap them. That might be the best, as they pop up all the time on ebay with faceplate problems for relatively good prices.

Laptop sometimes switches off when moved.

Sounds like a loose connection where the laptop opens and closes hinge there are wires that run from the main screen to the main board. If you know how to take the unit apart it maybe a cheap fix if not then a new laptop maybe the way to go the prices have really dropped from 4 years ago

Car started started loosing power and making funny noises 1 month ago, had someone check it out and it was three quarts low on oil! Had oil change done at time, now a month later same thing happened...

excess use of oil is caused by only one thing a badly worn engine or one thats been hammered by a previous owner like a rental car or sales rep ,worn rings and valve guides are the main reasons for oil use ,ps whats a quart ?? whats that in proper measurements like how many litres and do not forget the trunk is called a boot .

My Maytag legacy series dishwasher work one day and not the next

MAYTAG is AWFUL....READ REVIEWS before buying..If I only knew.Another thing Thanksgiving time,all the cooking,company & dishes,I have to hand wash after 3 says of prepeing food.WTF!!!
I am not soo happy at this time.It worked fine after a strugle to get it started & now the next load it's dead as ever.It has the lights lit dim but nothing else will go.I tried everything & cant even read the manuel on it since maytag charges for a viewing of there 5 month old product's manuel. I lost my manuel on mine & refuse to pay to read up to see if there is a reset button.I paid enough for this 5 months ago & it was only installed 4 months new! how's that for crappy appliance not to mention my lemon of a washer i got a few years ago.I see maytag has shittttttttyyyy appliances now when they use to be on top! I's ratehr buy a generic brand for less since it's got more of a warranty to offer.This here buy one or you lose as I & a millioon more..READ the REVIEWS Millioons of us been screwed & this economy who has it to cough up? NOT I !
Have a blessed Thanksgiving everyone ~~ Mine will only get better once I replace my appliances to a more trusting brand & with assurance of a better brand,I dont think I'll have this dealing in a short 4 to 5 month time frame & to mention again on a holiday tons of dishes.I want my money back in triple damages from all this stress
So posting my solution is DON'T BUY MAYTAG
