Fujitsu Ten Car Stereo Repair (Head Unit Toyota Vios)

With the final push of car restoration, I needed to replace my Toyota Vios' head unit (car stereo) for i wasn't able to repair it due to power problems so unlike the more expensive digital intrument panel.

I thought i found the problem with a continuity check but after soldering and testing with my AC power adapter, still no power. Note that car head units have two power supplies, one's the main power and the standby power supply voltage regulator connected to the ACC of the vehicle and responsible for the settings and CPU/computer of the car stereo (actually quad since it's four channel) and for powering up the digital LCD display.

If only I can find a fujitsu ten car stereo schematic diagram for download but all I can find online is the toyota vios witing diagram for the car stereo/head unit.

Perhaps I just stop attempting to repair it for wasted time and effort and just head to Banaue (bawawe), Quezon City, Cubao Autocentro, Raon, Quiapo, Manila or even Evagelista St. in Makati for surplus car stereo even brand new ones like Pioneer, JVC, Alpine, Sony head units with auxiliary input, USB and iPod Control preferable 2 DIN for 1 DIN HUs need spacers and additional installation hardware that can cost me around P500 more (even with free installation that comes with the brand new unit price).
