They said to ship it to them to repair it but you need to ship the head unit and the brain to determine if there is anything else wrong with it.

This was on another site.. I'm on hold with them right now.. January 3, 2007 Dear Valued Customer: Re: Upgraded Flex-Cable for Flip Screen in Navigation Models AVIC-N1 and AVIC-N2 We would like to inform you of a potential service issue with Pioneer's AVIC-N1 and AVIC-N2. If you are not experiencing any issues currently, there is no need to take immediate action because the one-time fix to resolve the issue will be available if an AVIC-N1 or AVIC-N2 later experiences the service issue. Importantly, the service issue does not pose any health or safety risk. Pioneer is aware of a potential issue with the flex-cable powering the flip screen to the AVIC-N1 and the AVIC-N2. After a number of power cycles, the cable has been observed to fail and cause the unit to malfunction (symptoms may include, but are not limited to, the flip-screen becoming blank) -- flex-cable failure can only be confirmed by Pioneer; standard service charges may apply for service issues not related to the flex-cable upgrade. This issue may affect almost all AVIC-N1 units and AVIC-N2 units.

I have had this happen also. Some of my buttons will work but just a couple. My problem started with the buttons going out. Then the screen went dim for about a week, week and a half. Then it just went out. I read that there is a bulb in the screen that can go out but I dont know what it is called or what it looks like. I called pioneer about this. And all they told me was to send it in for them to look at it and POSSIBLY fix it. ONLY for 200.00. Yeah right. I haven't even had this thing but a month or two over a year. Really i have bearly used it's not a daily driver car.

Screen went blank


more than likely, the flexible cable from the monitor to the main pc board is bad, it needs to go back to pioneer to be repaired.

Power comes on but nothing works even monitor


It's probably your ribbon cable is broken. Pioneer replace it for free the 1st time. Contact them to send it in for service. It is a common issue for the Avic N series. If it is out of warranty then the guy on Ebay will fix it for you for around $100. Try SAME DAY AUDIO SERVICE, his name is Rick and he is very reliable. Goodluck.

AVIC-N1 opens to blanks screen and none of buttons work


It is probably the ribbon cable that you can see when the screen closes. This is a known problem and the part is sometimes hard to find. But is available.
