Had the same issue with the display. It was the connector, cleaned it with some ethanol and it worked awesome again!

Btw, found this thread on another forum. About some guy modding his P99, thought it belonged in this thread. Give it a read if you're interested

The BT module for it works better than almost every other one I've used.

The hard part is finding one.

Thanks Bud. This model is quite old. Though. I have tried to find a newer one for this deck but no cigar. I wish there was some portable one available.

About 1 year of daily usage. Hardly ever remove the front or play CDs so I was kinda surprised that the connector had issues.

Nearly every review I've read said the same. If it had reliable BT I would have chosen it over the 80PRS. Sound quality isn't as good but BT was necessary.

Issue became more frequent- alcohol on the connectors and now good as new, thanks again.
The connector pins seem small compared to previous head units.

Sorry but this is a thread for P99RS/DEH-P01 discussion. You question should be posted in the "System Design" section. You'll probably get more traffic and better help there. Most of the people that read this thread are folks that are interested in or own a P99RS.

Anyone come up with a way to get more grip on the P99's volume knob? Love the HU, HATE that control.

Maybe they'll update it at CES with all the bells, whistles, and a knob that doesn't suck.

I forget what the knob is like but is it a solid plastic peice or like a metal wheel with a rubber belt around the circumference?

It's smooth metal and wouldn't be so bad but the resistance to movement is pretty high so it's a bad combination. A rubber grip like Alpine units, while maybe not the most attractive method, is INFINITELY more user-friendly.

wow- completely used to the volume knob and not an issue whatsoever. i do like the one on my old alpine though- it was nice and large and (if I recall correctly) knurled.
