Question about Pioneer DEH-P2500 CD Player
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.
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.
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

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.
