I replaced the spring switch the screen came out and on but didnt flip up what could i have done wrong
Did you make sure you soldered the contact points correctly to the PC board? you might want to double check that to make sure none of the soldering points came loose. That's all that i can think of.

I have a problem with a blank screen. The screen opens, and the touch keys seem to work (even when the screen is blank), but the screen does not light up as it should. I have read through some of the posts to look for a solution, and the flex cable may be the problem. Can you confirm this?
Sounds exactly like what happens when that flex cable gets damaged. Hurray pioneer and their crappy flex cables.

Couldn't say as far as difficulty goes. I have to ship them out, I'm not allowed to even attempt this repair at work. Which I find strange, they have no problems with me stripping the interior of a $100k bmw, but I can't take apart a $2k radio. Hmm?
Thanks.... I ordered the part from Pioneer, and should get it tomorrow. I opted for the 2nd shipping, since it is driving me nuts not to have my screen function. I will install and report on how it goes. I looked at the instructions, and it does not look too bad. Will update after the repair.

Here's my question.
If I open it up and solder the jumper, will Pioneer still honor the recall on the ribbon cable if that problem crops up later on?
I don't see any kind of "in warranty" qualifier on their web site. Since my N1 is way out of warranty the modification I want to do shouldn't have any effect on the ribbon cable, but I'm worried that if I do any kind of modification at all to the unit they may blame the failure of the cable (if it ever fails) on the fact that I've taken it apart myself and then refuse to replace the cable.

Then suddenly Friday, when I would start the car, the unit would show the blue power lights as it normally would, extend the screen, flip up and then shut down all lights off. The unit would respond by cylcing through a power shutdown, startup when I pressed the reset button.
Same if I removed and replaced the removable face plate.
Is this due to bad flex cable?
Will they fix free it since I bypassed it?
What are the chances of me fixing it myself? Where to get the part?

Not easy to take apart if you're not careful you can royally F it up. Flex cable is currently unavailible due to the warranty upgrade.

They want me to send it in, but also mention the $200 repair if needed.
Before I send in the head unit and the brain, what is the minimum I need to test on the bench?
12v power that's all right?
Will it power without speakers?

Anyway, I am going to call pioneer tomorrow to see if they will replace it, again. If not, I have instructions and part numbers. Thanks, guys. Now all I need is the updated disk and the XM Navtraffic reciever and I am ready to hit the road again.
