tap the front of the screen, i had the same problem, and went for the CAVEMAN approach, just tap the front of the screen(not too hard) and it should open right up. my friend had the same problem and he told me it worked, and it did.:-)

It is a cable inside the deck that connects the face controls to the deck controls. It's about $125 fix if it's not still under warranty. I've had 2 premier decks with that problem I won't ever buy any pioneer motorized face decks again. Their decks are awesome but they've had this problem for awhile and haven't made an attempt to fix it....

All decks with a motorized face are susceptible to that problem because the ribbon cable almost always rubs against some casing etc. and wears it down, eventually leading to failure...In my opinion, they could better protect the cable from wearing down by coating it in a thicker substance that surrounds the wiring...

there's something else that breaks in there too. The service shop replaced the cable and the first time I turned it on it did the same thing. Been in 3 times.....
