Head unit drops connection

I bought a WD external 250 GB USB hard drive for my Pioneer DEH-P6000UB. It connects fine and will play fine - initially. But, after a period of time, sometimes just several minutes, sometimes 15-20 minutes, it stops playing. It's as though the head unit is no longer able to read the drive and it keeps trying and trying until I finally reach over and disconnect it. If I use a flash drive, I have no issues like this at all. This almost makes me think that my 250 GB hard drive is skipping. What are your thoughts on this issue? Thanks so much!

    I've tried both these solutions already. I have the same results whether I have 5 songs or 50 folders loaded with songs. I found some forums on the net and other users have had similar issues as well. I think I'm going to give Pioneer a call. I don't think they should be selling a head unit advertised to support a 250 GB external hard drive that doesn't, ya know? Thanks for the feedback yo.

IT DOESNT SEEM LIKE A HARDWARE ISSUE BUT A SOFTWARE ONE .
TRY RELOADING THE "DRIVER" TO YOUR HARD DRIVE (AFTER CONNECTING IT TO YOUR COMPUTER OF COURSE)AND SEE THE DIFFERENCE.
DOES IT HAVE TOO MUCH OF DATA LOADED?GET SOME LOADED OFF.

try checking your connections on the back of your head unit. your audio cables might have come unplugged which could be causing your amp not to receive any sound

To choose AUX "ON" or USB "ON" put the power OFF from the SRC SWITCH,PRESS THE MULTICONTROL ROTARY KNOB for 1-2 seconds .the display will show AUX OFF or USB OFF.Select "ON"on pressing the multicontrol knob again.
Now connect your device via the AUX or USB jack and see

Pioneer deh-p850mp problem


Check the ribbon cable on the inside that connects the two parts.

You will need to remove the faceplate and open up the Rear of the unit.
If you bought it used, theres a good chance that the ribbon is in fact broken. If its new, check the connections on the ribbon cable.

It is a chronic problem with most all PIONEER units that fold down / out.



Best of Luck.

Pioneer DEH-P690UB FM tuning problem


Pioneer have factory set your DEH-P690UB to 0.2Mhz steps to match the American FM frequency allocations. The fix is not casual as it requires complete disassembly of the head unit and repositioning of two surface mount resistors. This will void any warrantee and unless you're good at microscopic soldering could also ruin the set. I did however void my 2 year warrantee yesterday partly out of frustration and because I have the right SMT tools at work. Now my tuner CPU thinks it's in the Austrailian/Asian model DEH-P7950UB and is also compatible with UK stations. A previously hidden menu is also available where I can set either 0.1 or 0.05Mhz stepping for FM and 9 or 10KHz for AM BSM scanning. The rotary control now steps in 0.05's instead of odd 0.2's on FM Hope this helps.
