It sorta looks like one of the units with the split face I think the model number was a DEH7700 if its that deck there were lots of problems with the ribbon cable being worn by the tim ring ...that when you buy a new ribbon from Pioneer they will send a custom notched faceplate trim ring with the replacement cable

I don't think it's a marine unit... It almost looks like one of the old double faced units... gahh I loved the one I had :crap: got it in a trade to put in a radio in a girl's car... too bad the screen died on me... loved that thing

For it's age it was a great unit (imo)

Makes sense mine had a screen go out... oh well. Guess I will just leave that one be then.

If you can get it cheap it would be worth it

Maybe... Gonna try to get a model # off the guy then go from there. Thanks for the words and links of wisdom though.

That is a Pioneer DEH-P8400MP. It has two moving faceplates. The outer one motors down to uncover the inner one. The inner one drops down and angles out slightly. The ribbon cables that attach to the faceplates are junk, especially the outer one. I have to replace mine about every 18 months, at a cost of about $48 for both. Other than that huge problem, this is a great unit.
