    Same as above - unit just says "Please Wait"

    Myapearl, I had the same problem with my first unit, right out of the box. Called Pioneer techs and they instructed me to return. Took seven weeks to get the replacement.

    The second unit I have had for about four months. Just as of today, it will not shut off and it says on the screeen "Powering Up...". I am beginning to question the integrity of this device.

    Bought mine tonight at Best Buy. Had it on, charging, activated my new XM account and after about an hour it shut off. It's still charging the battery and the unit gets hot but still doesnt come on. Guess I'll be taking it back to BB tomorrow.

Just off the phone with Pioneer customer service. Apparently a "software glitch" common enough that an internal memo has gone out to replace units under warranty without further trouble shooting. The last step in the process was to remove the battery, place in the original charging cradle without the battery, and hold the power switch down for 10-15 seconds; if the "Please Wait" message continues, the unit is defective.

BS. A time stamp scam in the OS by XM and Pioneer to get you to renew your subscription to services. How many others after three or more months have experienced this anomalie?

When i turn it on it displays "please wait" but nothing else happens. I have had the GEX-XMP3 player for about a year and half. Is it toast? I've switched out different craddles, but I...


Try pulling the battery for 15 minutes, this should give you a "soft reset". Then try to use the XMP3 in portable mode, so you take the dock out of the station. See if this helps you to boot up, then see if you can go through options/settings and run a factory reset.

Remove the back battery cover only. Turn unit on. Insert a tiny paperclip thru the tiny 'reset' hole on the back of the unit inside the battery compartment. OK?

I connected my Pioneer GEX-XMP3 player through the auxillary terminals on my Bose Wave radio and the sound is very low. I connected it as stated in the satelite radio book. Help!!


Hi have you set the vlume of the MP3 player to its maximum? You need to do so since the AUX input behind the unit does accept fix line input as standard.

Glad to be of service...

Cant control bass or treble


when you bought this did you just get the in-dash unit or did it come with a brain unit as well .........if it was just the in-dash player you need to buy a brain unit to control bass & treble and other features for this unit when pioneer sold this the dash unit sold for$495.00 but the brain unit cost $599.00 it was a price grabber cause they wouldn't tell you it needs a brain unit (the actual full unit sold for $1200.00 brain/dash) yet it works with other pioneer in-dash units the person you bought from probably upgraded to the avhp-7500DVD and kept the brain unit from the one he sold you but good news its a few years old so i would checkout eBay for the brain unit
hope this answered your problem good luck

Pioneer system Query


usually red, black, yellow for the power.. the rest are for the accessories.. ie. speaker, optional amplifier power on trigger.

black goes to the ground or chassis.
red goes to ignition (so the head unit willl only power on when the ignition is in ACC or accessory)
yellow goes directly to the battery but fused.
