Question about Pioneer DEH-245 CD Changer

2 Answers

Odd frequency I own a DEH-345, I think its identical to the DEH-245 model(at least the picture seems to be the same). Had a problem since day 1 - the radio could only be tuned to odd frequencies (91.7, 91.9, 92.1 etc). After I took it with me to my home country i was told that fixing that would cost a great deal and forgot about it. Recently I heard that someone with the same problem found a fix to it, on a different model(i'm guessing since he described an "audio" button mine doesn't have). I tried but it didn't work with mine. something with changing it from FM 100 to FM 50. Is there anything I can do?

Re: odd frequency

Got this answer from pioneer - "This unit was designed only as a US model and the frequency will only stop on the odd numbers, ie. 91.1, 92.3, 100.3. To change this it would have to go to a service location and have the tuner changed. There is no switch to change the frequencies" If I ever had an "audio" button, the letters wore out. I dont have an audio button now. I guess thats the answer - don't buy american radios and take them back to europe. unless someone wants to post a solution that shows where is the audio button? madhat?

Re: odd frequency

Hey, all you have to do is to turn off your radio and press on the audio botton until you can adjust your clock, then press again until you see "FM 100" on the display, now push the ">" botton to change it to "FM 50" and finaly another long press on the audio to wrap up.. and it's done.

Pioneer 345 DEH

Intermittent faults especially one as intermittent as yours can be very difficul to trace but the first things to check are loose connections on the power supply leads at the back of the radio and if they are ok you will need to dismantle your radio and check for dry joints usually around the plug and if needed resolder these dry joints
