Question about Pioneer DEH-P7800MP
I found the solution to the problem for my unit. There is a ribbon cable that connects to the front plate where you snap on/slide off the faceplate. This cable actually wears out from opening and closing the CD drive. I had to take the unit in for repairs and it cost about $150 to replace the cable. Once my radio was re-installed, I promptly turned off the function that opens the unit every time I turned my car off. I figure the thing opening and closing the CD drive every time I went in and out of the car was wearing the ribbon cable out. So it was NOT the faceplate like I thought. It was the ribbon cable that attaches to it from behind the faceplate connecting harness.
Now the only other quirky thing this radio does is some of the channels go out. Then I just move the volume control and the speaker comes back on.
I tell you, this radio was NOT worth the $300+ I paid for it. Plus the Pioneer people on the phone were not very helpful.
I would avoid this unit if you see an old one for sale.

Try wiping the metal contact plate on the unit.
