    Same thing here, it keeps rebooting, sometimes it starts up and freezes when done. Sometimes there is a weird tone and freezes aswell. and there is also the time that the device starts playing normal and then makes strange noises during play

    I have had my unit replaced more than 4 times now. I know it is happening with more than one unit because I always make sure the serial# is different. One of the units lasted me a good 5-6 months, but then out of no where, it started doing it again. The other units only last about a day or two. I have gotten to the point where I was blamming the store where I bought it and the installer they where using. Poor guys, they are just installers. What do they, know right!?

    Well, as you can imagine, I have decided to join in on the quest for solutions. YES, once again! My supposably "new unit" that the store manager aka Joe Smuck, said had been exchanged by Pioneer, has again failed. And yes it has only been a week. Correct me if I am wrong, but doesn't a new unit have the free MSN trial for you to register and use? The darn thing shows as "Expired" in the registration section. "New"? I dont think so! Refurbished? May be. "Used"? Definately! I do not even believe that the store actually shipped my last unit to Pioneer, yet made me wait more than two months with out a simple phone call to let me know the so called replacement was in. I had to call them.

    Well ladies and gents, wish me luck. It is time to begin a dispute with Pioneer. It's been a year almost and cant seem to enjoy the $1,100 I was charged for a piece of shoe model that had all great expectations. Regardless of who's fault it is, I am going to request my full refund. I am going to have to go through BAR, Consumer Affairs and possibly small claims court if I have to. Anyone, in?

I am on UNIT number 3. I have a car I only drive in summer. I have been driving my car on warm days since March 1st. I was literally on my way to shop for headunits when I notice a song played ALL the way thru. Now I can't get it to reboot :)
No, idea on the problem.

I have done a hard reseet on my acer f900 now it shows arabic language!! can u help me to change it into english

TAP start- settings- system- regional settings( icon is earth)- locate English(ur country) in the search box- tap ok.

Next, TAP MULTILINGUAL SUPPORT( located near the regional settings, before the battery icon. Still the icon is earth but it has a somewhat ring figure)- locate your country. Then go to CONTROL tab located below<3rd tab>, unmark the first box then just below it, choose English with Arabic Enabled- tap ok.

Make sure to restart your handset. Long press the power button until it displays an icon that means do not turn off handset by removing the battery then if it's already off. wait for a couple of seconds, like 10seconds maybe then turn it on again.

Try and use it in 'safe mode' by pressing F8 in advanced startup options.

Then do the system restore.

Sorry if it dosen't help but i can't really reply in fully on a forum.
