Sorry I can't help more.

Also as I'm desperate for one...
Can either of you advise on:
Is the installation as simple as take the top unit and screen out?
How do you replace the CD unit for the DVD unit?
The main Ford cable does this plug straight into the unit i.e. Plug and Play.
There are different versions of this exact make. Cables/Cards go in the top or routed from the back of the unit?
Keeping a close eye on this topic

Jack of all trades, master of none. Just don't expect it to function like a factory fit unit.
The satnav took at least 10 mins to find the satelite and just wasn't reliable.
I had no confidence in the black plastic screen surround and on sunny days was constantly covering it with a towel when leaving the car incase it melted.
The bluetooth quality was terrible. I lost ford voice controls
This was early 2010 so might be improvements now. On my unit I couldn't use steering wheel controls.
The screen was too glaring at night and no dim just the option to turn it off altogether.
The supplied remote control didn't work.
Couldn't get any tv reception at all.
Good points: Sound quality not bad/ Dvd playback and music on SD card worked well.
Fairly easy to install. The amount of cables look daunting but it is just plug and play. I would advise buying some plastic trim removal tools to avoid damaging any trim and disconnect the negative from the battery before doing anything.
The dvd unit is pretty much identical to the ford cd unit so is just a swap. The original screen comes out and the cable connected to it just fixes to the new screen. I can remember the only trouble I had was the sheer amount of wiring and was a bit fiddly to tuck everything in.
I now have a ford mirrornavi fitted which does me fine.
I removed all my original photos on this subject as all my pics now appear on numerous websites of companies who sell the unit claiming the photos to be theirs. They even have the cheek to watermark them.
I will put some up again once I have watermarked them myself.

I would try for a refund.
Only thing to be careful about is that the supplier might advise professional installation only and require a certificate to say the unit is faulty.
Hope you get it sorted.

haigboardman, just a thought. Could it be just the screen not displaying. Do the stereo controls light up when you press the power button? Have you tried to load a cd?
