I pulled it completely out and checked all the wires, which I soldered and shrink wrapped myself. Checked the fuses as well but no dice- it won't do anything other than light up and beep at me. I am completely at a loss?

I can't find a reference for these units 'beeping' anywhere, not even in the manual. Unit has been flawless until today...Anyone have any ideas on what else it might be?

I just had to replace our main TV in the house for a couple thousand bucks so this is not good timing at all!

TIA!
Just an update to this- It's officially dead. I had it bench tested at CarToys...So I popped the stocker back in for now. Man it sounds like hell. I tweaked the factory underseat sub's gain UP a bit which helped somewhat...

I'm going to submit a warranty claim and then sell it cheap so keep an eye out if your interested - haha.

I'm going to wait for the AVIC-x950bt to be available and pop that in. To be honest I missed the Navi I had in my AVIC-x930 and the screen res on the 4400 was lacking.

Finally the iOS6 functionality issues with the 4400 were killing me.

Hopefully SVXDC will have a harness for me when I get it (I am guessing the 4400 harness he sent me won't work on the 950)
