Question about Pioneer DEH-P2500 CD Player

2 Answers

The unit will not play radio or cd.

The Pioneer DEH-P2500 CD worked fine until my teenager used the vehicle one day. Strangely, since then the sound of silence has been with us. The stereo powers on & off like normal, face plate lights come on, all function buttons work also. Checked all speakers and wire connections; all o.k. Absolutely no sound coming out at all. Did the kid hit a mute button? I don't have a manual for the stereo. Any help would be appreciated.

    The time is displayed, all the function adjustments are visible and able to be altered, but no sound at all. The CD can be heard spinning, and is ejected upon pressing the button.

    It was done and still no luck, fuse out, disconnected power source-nada.

Hi there dboy,

As a rule, Pioneer stereos are aftermarket installs. Any other equipment installed with it?

For example, do you have amplifiers in the trunk powering your system? If so, a malfunction there would explain things.

If not, we start with the easiest first.

  • Press the A button (Audio Adjust). This cycles through the various adjustments you can perform.
  • Make sure Balance and Fader are centered.
  • Volume is up above 10 or so.
  • And of course, Mute is off.
  • Press the F button to cycle through functions again. Any difference?
If there is an ATT (Attenuator) on your model press it. This is another form of mute (why don't they just call it Mute?).

If there is no change, make note of any digits, characters or symbols appearing on the face. I don't need the obvious items like station or CD Track. It's the non intuitive items. (what's that squiggle there mean?)

I know you've done this already, but ask the prime suspect again if he did anything, however innocent, just prior to the meltdown.

I'm pretty sure this is an Auto Equalize option on your model, I just can't swear to it though.

Ask if the term 'Auto Equalize' rings any bells. If he shows any recognition, come right back with, 'Did you do it without the microphone'? If he cracks under the pressure, let me know. The EQ settings may be way high (off the wall high) and the system is protecting itself by not making any noise.

Comment me back with your findings and a bit more about the configuration. We may need to go a few rounds before we end the sounds of silence

Mike.

I Know You Probably Don't Want To But Have You Tried Disconnecting The Battery Or Removing The Radio Fuse For A Minute? This Will Reset The Radio To Its Factory Presets.

Pioneer DEH-2100, no power after alternator change.


Take the unit out of the dash. In the back of the unit, disconnect/remove the wiring connector. Underneath a little "flap" on the bottom of this connector there is a small red 10V fuse. That fuse had blown, and when I replaced it the CD?radio worked just fine.
