Question about Pioneer AVIC-N2 Car DVD Player

1 Answer

My AVIC-N2 will not stay on! I have to hold down the source butto

I can't get my avic-n2 to stay runnin. It was working fine but for about the last year, the source button just keeps flashing. If you hold it down for long enough at night it will work on its own, but during the day forget about it lol. I'm assuming its overheating or something???? Is anyone else having this problem or know how to solve it?

    I Have kinda the same problem. Everything will work just fine at first, but then after a little while after driving it will just cut off, and start flashing like its coming on and shutting off. Now if I turn the air conditioning on for a while it will come on, or I can push on the faceplate, and it will come on. I feel like Im the only one that has this problem, so Im sure there is no way to fix it, but please someone give me some advice, I really dont wan to throw it away.

    Exact same problem on our Avic-N2; the faceplate would just flash on and off but if you cooled the unit down with AC blowing directly onto it, it would eventually work. For some odd reason, pushing the eject button was the best way to bring it back to life once the faceplate began flashing. Finally we just got sick of it and replaced the stereo. After I had removed the unit I saw that there are two cooling fans that are integrated into the back of the unit, and I suspect that one or both of these has failed causing the unit to malfuntion. My advice to anyone else that has this problem would be to see if you can verify if your fans are functioning properly while the unit is still connected to the power supply of your vehicle.

Notice: Upgraded Flex-Cable for Flip Screen in Navigation Models AVIC-N1 and AVIC-N2 To: 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, inform you of our plans to resolve this service issue, and ask for your help in notifying consumers. If a consumer is not experiencing any issues currently, there is no need for the consumer to take immediate action because the one-time fix to resolve the service issue will be available if an AVIC-N1 and 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. Please contact Pioneer at the number listed below if you have a question about whether your AVIC-N1 or AVIC-N2 unit is affected by this issue, or if a specific malfunction affecting your AVCI-N1 or AVIC-N2 is related to this issue. To address this issue, Pioneer is providing a one-time cable upgrade to consumers for their AVIC-N1 and AVIC-N2 at no charge to consumers for parts and labor. Pioneer will offer the free upgrade either upon request or automatically if an affected unit is serviced for another reason. Pioneer will exclusively perform the free cable upgrade for all units (i.e., no other service facility should perform the cable upgrade). If you own an AVIC-N1 or AVIC-N2 and you are experiencing the service issue, please contact Pioneer Customer Service toll free at 800-421-1603 to arrange for the cable upgrade. Pioneer service representatives are available Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. (Eastern Time). Customers who have paid for the cable upgrade are eligible for reimbursement of certain service costs if sufficient proof of service can be provided -- please contact Pioneer at the above-listed phone number for more information regarding reimbursement rules. Customers can also review FAQs regarding this service issue. Click here to view the FAQs. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this service issue may cause you, and we thank you for your cooperation and continued support of Pioneer. Sincerely, Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. *Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc., 2265 East 220th Street, Long Beach, CA 90810* ------------------------------------------------------------------------
