View Full Version : Testing to see if faceplate works?
10-08-2004, 04:53 PM
Ok...to make a long story short, I bought a refurbished pioneer deh-p750mp off ebay and it doesnt work (doesnt power on). I tried to return it but the seller has a fake address or something and it isnt under warranty because I bought it from ebay.
So, how can I test the faceplate to see if it works? Because if it does I could sell it. If not i'll have to sell it as totally not working.
Thanks guys (and gals),

Just sell it on ebay as working, get your money back and screw someone over just like you got screwed over. That's what ebay is for :)
Seriously though, have you looked into why it doesn't work?? A shop would only charge $25 to look at the whole unit for you and tell you what it would take to fix it. You never know, it could be as easy as a loose connection.

Well I called the local authorized pioneer repair center before I made this post and they told me $100 minimum....I guess I'll try some other places and have them look at it. Thanks though.

First thing you should do is to file a Paypal, and/or Ebay fraud claim. This way you'll at least get your money back. As for testing it, find another Pioneer deck with a connector similar to the one of your deck, and pop on the face. It won't be the same model, I know, but It will probably work. I did this a while ago testing decks, and a P5200 face fit on an 8200R body, and a cassete deck face fit on the P5200 body. Try your local radio shop.
