    Theory: OEL HU Faceplates not relocatable?

    I tried to use CAT 5 to relocate the faceplate on my Sony HU. The buttons all work but I get no LCD display. Others have posted similar problems with different brand HU's.

    Has anyone ever succesfully relocated a faceplate that is an OEL display faceplate? I am wondering if there is a pattern here that would tell us that the OEL displays can't be relocated/extended?

    maybe a certain pin needs to be pushed in as if the face is in. when your face flips down to reveal the cd player behind it does your music still play? is the display on when the face is down? if its not on than it turns on when it pops back into place it means something needs to be pushed in so the HU thinks the faceplate is in.

    Thanks, EsKALad.

    There is a button which operates a switch inside of the unit. Been there, done that -- its not the problem.

    I soldered it under a magnifying glass. I know everything is right.

    I'd like to get some discussion going on my theory because I think it may tell us what HU's can be extended and which can't.

    I tried with the Alpine CDA-9855 (not sure if it's OEL or not) and failed. Soldered it 20 times, even let a pro audio shop try, no luck.
