SOURCE: pioneer pdp 502mx goes to standby no picture after power on

Contact Pioneer at 1-800-421-1404 about getting an in-home power supply replacement. This is a known issue with some plasma displays. Some of you would experience a loud pop and then the power supply fails. You get a red light below the ON button, when you press on, the red light will turn green for a second and then back to red. The plasma display will not turn on after the power supply fails. Call Pioneer at 1-800-421-1404.

SOURCE: XMp3i is stuck on "powering

Bad TSOP flash chip. No way to fix without disassembling, removing the flash chip, and placing a new flash chip on it. Doing so requires a donor radio (with another issue), and will change your XM Radio ID. You'll also need to have a hot air (or IR) rework station for desoldering the old chip, and a soldering iron for placing the new chip on the radio.
I'd say give pioneer a call since it's a design flaw, and a VERY common issue. My best guess is that it's caused by excessive heat & defective chips.

On my pioneer p6500 it is stuck on demo mode how do I turn this off so my radio will work


You should still be able to turn the radio on even if it is in demo mode. If you can''t turn the radio on, you have other problems. Did you try pressing the source button? Most pioneer radios tell you how to turn demo mode off when you first put power to it.

They don't actually say it in so many words but the "two week" comment and the Demo Mode startup on even the briefest power loss implies there is a battery or a charged capacitor for memory keep-alive somewhere inside the unit and it is dead or malfunctioning.

Maybe someone can add something more specific to look for. Either way, a tech needs to check it out.

My 8-year old Pioneer loses settings on extended power losses, too. Oh well.

To get the STR-DE845 ( or STR-DE945 ) out of DEMO MODE - Turn unit on and HOLD POWER BUTTON FOR A FEW SECONDS ...Turn unit off and when you turn it on again it should be reset ...It worked for me.
( Note : You may need to do this procedure before it goes into its actual demonstration of features ... Press and hold the power button immediately when it initially starts scrolling it's DEMONSTRATION MODE message . )

How to set demo off in Pioneer AVH 4150 I Wanna conect the two wires ...red and yellow directly to 12 volts permanent but the demo still work and drawn my battery


im not sure what you mean by demo, but the yellow wire goes to the battery, the red one needs to goto a power source that only comes one when you turn on the key to start the car. with both yellow and red connected to the battery, the stereo stays powered up and will drain your battery. the yellow is only to keep your settings so it doent draw very much power from the battery, with the red connected to the battery also, its drawing a full 12 volts thus draining your battery,

Look for the function button. Once found (on unit or remote), turn off the power. press and hold the function button until the units sub menu pops up. use this screen to set time and other options. one of the options is to turn of demo mode. At least that used to be how pioneer did it.
