It's interesting, I just drove it. It sucks a cassette tape in just fine, and something lit up in there, but there was no sound and it does not show anything on the view screen above.

pull the panel and disconnect it. then reconnect it. see if that helps. if not we will continue troubleshooting.

Customer: replied 10 days ago.
I'm away from the car for a while. I might disconnect the entire battery, wait a while, then reconnect it to the car; that's easier than pulling panels for me.
Expert:  david craig replied 10 days ago.

that is also a good idea. also pull the fuse and put it back in.
