Question about Pioneer Car Audio & Video

2 Answers

I purchase a used truck that has a Pioneer AVIC-Z1 system installed. I can not get the system to read any CD or DVD that I have inserted in the system. It appears that on the AV source menue paper both the CD and DVD touch screen buttons are gray.

    I purchase the optical cleaner and had to insert the disk 6 times before it would read the cleaning disk to start the cleaning process. That solved the problem. Thanks

Since the menu itself is grey i think this is a problem with your firmware

A cd is stuck in my Pioneer AVIC Z1 nav system. I


This is a tricky one you could try tyaking the top of the radio off and see if you can help slide it out. Another trick is to get a thin stiff piece of cardboard like the back of a writing tablet cut a strip apx. 2" wide and 6" long. Take a piece of ducktape and with the sticky side up insert under the disc hit eject and see if that will coax it out.

One of the pistons that move the screen in place must be stuck. The unit must be taken apart to fix this.
You need to take the tablet at a replair shop

Can I install a Pioneer Avic Z1 into a 2002 gmc jimmy?if so is there a dash kit and wiring harness available?


Yes, that is the best way to go. Most local automotive stereo stores sell an installation kit that has a surround that the new stereo mounts in to and fits the space of the stock stereo, and also comes with a wiring harness that wires the new stereo to a plug that fits tthe car's stock radio connector.

You have problem with the reading head of the cd. if it has warranty send it back or else you have to try to clean the head with a cotton stick and it will work fine if the head is not broken.

AVIC z1 issues


First of all you should have know better than to force it. If you can't get your money back from the seller, and I don't think he will if you mention this, I'm interested if the price is right to buy it from you as is. Email me at: joe_texan_1951@yahoo.com
