Yeah, I found out a couple years ago that Pioneer does make stereos, and I'f I'm not mistaken, mostly for Ford. Maybe that is why when the radio display went on the wife's 07' Edge, Ford wanted $600 for a new radio. No thank you.

I don't know about her stereo, but in a general sense plenty of stereo/EATC/climate control displays and many other modules (RKE for example) are easily fixed by floating out some solder joints. The trick is to know which ones, but thanks to the interwebz, a lot of those "secrets" aren't a secret anymore. BTW, flatscreens are fair game for this too, between marginally sized components (fuses and capacitors) along with a solder process known as the "wave process" and then RoHS, meaning lead free solder that doesn't float, they are vulnerable to early deaths but with easy fixes. Like the plasma I have located in my living room, or the LCD in my rec room, those were easy fixes. I'm in that 42" LG LCD TV for a grand total of $7.69; it works just great.

Yeah, the Pioneer stereos are prone to soldering issues, and I didn't feel like messing with it. I found a guy in North Carolina on www.explorerforums.com who claimed to have fixed hundreds of stereos, so I sent him hers and he fixed it for under $100. Knock-on-wood, and that was two years ago, I believe. Surprising that the stereo didn't last 5 years, but far cheaper than replacing it with another OEM.

Kohls started a sale for it today.... I have to work at Best Buy on behalf my company Friday so I'm not looking forward to that. The sales we're running are either repeats of previous sales or promos that will go all weekend long.

That's a good deal, too bad you didn't know the "secret" but in the universe of repair costs that's still a great price for fixing a problem. +10!

I like going out about 2 or 3pm on black friday just to see what kind of mess the stores are left in from the tornado of people that morning.

I made the mistake of going out at 5am one time to get a hdtv... almost had to punch an old lady in the mouth to get her to stop scratching my arms... didn't get a tv & I won't be doing that again... unless I bring a baseball bat with me.
Cyber Monday FTW

What you are actually doing is flowing the the solder, not floating. If that fixes the issue what you had was a cold solder joint. The 'wave process' you refer to is how the solder is originally flowed. It is put down as a paste, then the components and placed on it, then it is passed through an infra red oven to flow the paste. Excess is washed off, then it should be inspected. If their process is in control, they will inspect a portion of them. All of them are not looked at. So defects can slip through.

Never gone out shopping on black friday and never will. To many kooks who will cut you for a flat screen.

I went out. Got ammo and a gun case. Wasn't too bad.
