Question about Pioneer Audio Players & Recorders
SOURCE: Pioneer PD-206 wont power up
Try disconnecting from the power and powering it up again to reset the unit.
If it still wont cooperate, the unit will have popped a IC protector in the power supply. Not an uncommon fault. The burnt disc you used may have pushed the tracking servos a little hard and a circuit protector has kicked it. Pop the lid off and look for a black 2 wire device about 4mm across that viewed from above has a D shape. Measure it with an ohm meter....It should read low ohms, if it does not... it has failed. It may be marked as ICPxx(from memory)
A fast fix we used for this is to grab the device and give it a 200 deg twist to short the legs together. Soemtimes(often) the body of the device will break off, just solder the legs left behind.
They have a habit of failingl with no reason, and shorting across them will not affect the operation of the unit, nor put it anything in jeopardy.
OR pull the board out... and replace the device, although I can tell you through experience, they may fail again.
Good luck, if you have any questions, just get back to

If you have a Windows-based computer,
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
If that fails,
Check the battery polarity. (+ and - must be in correct psoition)
Set the hold button to the unlock position.
Check if the file system is NTFS. If yes ,format it to FAT or FAT32. - Connect player to computer, click my computer, right click on icon of mp3 player and select format
If that fails,
go to www.mymusix.com to see if the latest software update will correct the problem
