    Welcome to Android Central! What brand and model is the head unit? Did this happen after some damage, or after doing some kind of repair?

    Thanks you for responding. I bought the car a year ago and the head unit was removed to complete some work. I recently installed it and the screen is inverted and backwards . If I touch the left the right is being touched. I’m not sure as to the brand. I’m looking and I’m not seeing . However I’ll provide a photo .

    My guess is something got damaged or disrupted when it was removed. No-name or off-brand Android head units tend to be low quality and get little-to-no support from the manufacturer, so there may not be much you can do about it. If you're good at tinkering, you could try taking it apart to check the screen connection.

    As if there's any other kind of Android head units?

    Something was definitely connected wrong inside the radio (this isn't something that would be the result of a bad install), but I'd rather go back to an OEM stock radio than try to figure that one out.

    LOL that's true. But didn't Kenwood make some Android head units (before they started making Android Auto head units)?

    Not that I'm aware of. I don't follow car audio as close as I used to, so maybe they did at some point? I window shop now and then, and I've not seen any of the major name brands selling Android OS based units. It's always the no name brands on Amazon, eBay, Wish, etc that run Android.

    It has a reset button. I tried doing that. All the wires are connected properly. It was working perfectly. I started the car after reinstall and that’s what happened. After reset it comes back to the same place

    So it did work correctly before?

    What sort of work was being done to the car that required removing and reinstalling it? It looks like someone partly disassembled the radio itself, then put it back together with the screen flipped top to bottom, but I don't know if that's even possible without other signs of improper assembly.

    If reset button didn't work then its a bad unit

    Quick question, the reset it below the gps switch? Did you use a pen to reset it ? If so did the unit reboot?

    Yes the unit worked correctly before. No issues touch was fine display was normal. I am the one who removed the unit and I was the one who reinstalled it. It wasn’t taken apart as it was stored in a very safe place as well. The card was being given cleaned and the got a paint job . I didn’t wanted to vapor from the paint job to blow onto the screen. The seats and all were removed. And re assembled

    No need to show a screenshot, do you have insurance on it? It sounds like it needs replacing.
