    Clarion DXZ945MP - Screen won't turn on - HELP!

    Just installed it, acquired it in a trade. Hooked up everything right, except for the power antenna wire and the cell phone mute wire, which don't apply to my truck.

    Unit powers up, there are lights around the buttons and I can eject cd's, the face plat flips out like normal. However, the screen won't turn on. I've tried resetting the unit, pushing all sorts of combinations of buttons, everything.

    I just can't get the screen to come on. No sound output, either.

    Help :-/

    It sounds like the backlight is dead. Turn it on and shine a light on it and see if you see anything. If you do and it is just dark then the backlight is bad. Not a hard repair really. Just make sure you can do some decent soldering. Otherwise it isnt gonna be cheap to fix. Did it work fine when you got it?. If not then trade back as it was in a way DOA.

    Ok, so the TFT screen is dead. Good luck. Those faceplates arent cheap and neither are the costs of repair. You arent the original purchaser so warranteeing it isnt an option. Apparently the guy would send something to you DOA as it was partially DOA.

    Nope, it worked when it came out of my truck on the 25th. Maldecido and I are attempting to get the problem isolated.
    If it was the screen, that wouldnt explain the lack of sound output.....We figure its something simple that is being overlooked. Unless the deck just died in shipping, even though there's no visible damage to the deck, nor to the shipping box.

    Didnt notice the no sound output statement. Sounds like it is gonna be a pain. Hope it was insured.

    Yep, it was insured. Thing is, there was no visible damage to the deck itself or the shipping box, and it was well packed, etc.

    Possibly something caused by shock from being bounced around. Other than that, check the wires like Jay stated.

    Maldecido got it fixed- unhooked everything, and just reconnected it all, and it worked.
    Thanks for all the suggestions, guys.
