Question about Pioneer Premier DEH-P960MP CD Player

2 Answers

Premier deh-p960mp First off I bought this unit refurbished and it worked fine for about a year since then I have replaced the flex ribbon cable twice, and each time after about a month of working fine it will start acting up sometimes playing and not sometimes. After that goes on for a while the faceplate itself wont open or anything untill I replace the flex ribbon cable with a new one. Could there be something else that is wrong with the unit besides the flex ribbon cable that I am overlooking???

    Pioneer isn't selling the part with instructions for install. I was able to get the part but don't have the instructions to install.

I would suggest to double check all your wiring connections and the flex could part of the intermittent functionality as well but changing twice in a year already, I will say that there could be some loose wiring connections at the back of your device.
If you open the device and check for loose solder joints where the wires connect to the back of your stereo.

Probably needs a new ribbon cable in the lens. This flexible cable maintains the contact as the lens is zoomed in and out. If it is still under warranty take it back to B&H for a simple repair.

When I open my laptop the screen becomes green and fuzzy. This is until I move the screen slowly backwards and eventually I hit a spot where it comes back to normal but if I move the screen forward or...


The ribbon cable to the lcd layer (green pixel contact common) is going bad or the connection of the cable to the lcd unit is dirty. It is probably the connection, as the ribbon cable, if installed correctly, will flex many more times than the hinges would be able to (that is, the ribbon cable should outlast the laptop). Sometimes they might not be installed correctly in that there is a hangup or kink of some kind and the bending (each time the laptop is opened and closed) makes it bend beyond the elastic limit of the metal, and it eventually cracks. The problem you have may be cause by the cracked metal in the ribbon cable, and careful placement of the screen makes the cracked trace reconnect by flexing. It could be caused by a bad contact of the cable to the board or (most likely) the screen unit.
If you are inclined, take apart and carefully inspect the ribbon cable for any parts that have a kink in it or is otherwise flexed too much in one small little area. Flex the cable to see if it changes the display. Otherwise, wiggle the ends (careful) to see if it will try to work.
If you find a cracked cable, have it replaced. If the contacts prove to be dirty, unplug or otherwise remove cable end that is dirty and reseat cable after carefully burnishing contacts and using contact grease (smathering only).

The flex cable is the weak link in all Flip style phons, so yes replace the ribbon/flex cable and most likely it will cure the problem.

Does Pioneer still offer FREE replacement screen ribbon cables??


Yes they will replace the ribbon cable for free for only one time. but if you did the bypass mod they will unmod it and charge you $200 for doing it. In that case you better of send it to that guy Rich with Same Day Audio Service on Ebay, he will fix it with his company manufactured milspec ribbon cable for I think $85. His cables are much higher quality than Pioneer's and come with a free lifetime warrantee if you have it perform by him or you can purchase the cable from him and put it in by yourself but he won't guarantee it if you do. It not very hard to do if you are a little bit technical incline. I bought a few cables and replaced them myself with the Ribbon Cable Exhausted Tutor Guide on AVIC411.com, but I have figured out a much easier way to do it. Let me know if you need help. Goodluck to you.
