Unit doesn't turn on properly

When I turn on the AVIC-F500BT the system goes into "System Startup in Progress" then the screen goes blank. I tried to reset the unit but it keeps doing the same thing. Battery has been fully charged and is connected to the AC adaptor.

My AVIC navigation screen does not turn on


Hi,

if it does not power up, then it means its having a power problem. it might have worked fine in the past, but that's electronics for you. Power surge, irregular power supply, excess power supply, etc can affect the unit thereby not making it to power on.

This unit must have a power supply board in it where power enters from the mains. A capacitor, fuse, diode, etc may have been defective on the power board and maybe that's why its not making the unit turn on. There might also be some disconnection or something, inside the unit which is not making it to power on.

To actually find out what's wrong, you need to disassemble the unit with a screw driver and check what's wrong. You will be needing a meter in order to test the components on the power board, once you detect any bad component, you can make necessary replacement at any electronics accessories store withing our vicinity. This is the only way by which you can detect the problem.

Of course, testing the power board with a meter will require someone that has the ability. So it you can't, then you might be needing the help of a repairman or you can call a friend that has the ability to help you out.

I wish you the best of luck.

AVIC-F700BT won't work after dealer did some work on it


Have you tried updating the firmware? A new version is available from the Pioneer website. You will need a blank, formatted SD card. Unzip the files from the Pioneer download and copy to the SD card. With the key out of the ignition put the SD card into the unit. Put the key in the ignition and turn to position I to turn on the F700BT. The update takes around 10-15 minutes. Ensure that no unnecessary electrical accessories are on in order to save battery life.

If that fails you may wish to check out www.avic411.com.

My gps system does not charge when install dash board mount


does it charge via an AC charger? As most GPS units do better on an initial AC charge prior to being hooked up to DC.
Your charge circuit is possibly faulty, or the internal battery has collapsed and needs changing

try getting the new 2.0 firmware on and put it on a SD card, install the new firmware and then install AVIC feeder on ur computer and change the settings to your likeness and save it on ur SD card. your AVIC will ask you to update aka yes or no and click yes, after the first time it will restart and load again with the same ?, click no and go to MSN direct status. keep in mind that the upgrade must take place in the cradle in a msn direct zone.

Iniitial charge time for a lithium battery


I'd reccommend leaving it on charge overnight, that way it'll give the battery a chance to get a full charge.

Dear Sir I installed a pioneer avic-f900bt as instructed in the manuals.When I m parked the unit works ok but as soon as i drive it starts switching off and on again.I did install the handbrake wire too.


I believe this is a safety problem to prevent distractions to the driver since this unit is installed in eye sight of the driver. Parked position is fine because the parking brake is on signifying you are stopped. Once moving it should turn off multimedia functionality. Try grounding your parking brake cable to think it is always on :)
