Was putting my sub and amp in and had the neg batt disconnected. got everything in and hooked batt up. Started truck my flipout cq-vd7001u came on and said input code. Well my ******* turned it off then on and the screen went black nothing on it and it wont come back so i can put in the right code.

tried searching google this is all i could find. ****** thing is i got it from ebay with no remote.


ANyone know if this is the only way to do it?

Someone has had to use one of these here. I need to know asap beacause now im riding around with no audio at all

interesting. i have never had this issue. my deck is a little older though

You ever had the code screen come up? It came up for like a minute and i didnt know what to do not having the remote so i tried to cycle it on and off and now im stuck with this.

try all zero's or 123 etc...

I have the code. But the screen will not come up for me to input it. I just get a blank screen no matter what i try.

how long did you let it sit disconnected? maybe try longer? not sure. never had this issue with mine.

It was disconnected for a good while. Time enough to wire up an amp and sub get it all mounted and truck back together.

Wonder if i should leave the battery connected or disconnected tonight to see if it makes any difference in the morning.

06-10-2009, 01:43 AM

Agreed. Disconnect it from battery power again.

06-10-2009, 01:47 AM
Hmm i tried disconnecting it for 15 mins. Should i try longer? the link i posted was saying i need to hit the power button on the remote to get the picture back but until i can find one im looking for other options all i need is the id screen to come back up then i can bypass it.

Ok i got the negative cable off for overnight. Do i need the positive off also?

I even tried unhooking the harness from the unit and trying the reset button and it turns on and off but still no picture yet. Im sure the unit is fine and its just a security feature because like i said the id screen popped up i turned the key off then on and then here i am.

With the negative disconnected the positive is dead. Let us know how this turns out.

thanks post back in the am

i dont think its going to work no matter how lng you keep it off. It says try holding the joystick over to the right for about 10 seconds but you need the remote to power it on. You may be stuck until you can get the remote. Thats what i am going to try once i get the wiring harness for mine.

Well that didnt work. And panasonic said i had to fax my receipt before they can tell me the over ride feature. And since i dont have a regular receipt since it was bought from ebay i guess im screwed.

06-10-2009, 02:39 PM
after browsing fixya all morning seems like its just a simple security feature and all i need is the remote to turn the screen back on and enter the code.

06-10-2009, 06:31 PM
Well i borrowed a remote and hit the power button on it and the id code screen popped right up. Put my code in and the unit started functioning like normal! crazy how that works

06-10-2009, 08:07 PM
Good work.

06-10-2009, 08:37 PM
yea now i need to find out what i can clean the fingerprints on the screen with.
