Honestly, I don't know of anything else you could do at this point - those would have been my suggestions as well. I would look up a car audio shop local to you, ask them if they deal in Pioneer units, and see if they've had success with anything else before you go to the trouble of sending it off (you may find that the shop is an authorized repair center, or they may be able to handle the ship-out and return of your head unit).

I'm sorry I don't have more to tell you on this, but you've covered pretty much all of the bases you can cover without factory intervention.

Only blue light with blank display on power on

Dear Joseph,

I had similar problem with my DGX620. In my case the display sometimes got blue and sometimes worked fine. The cause was a bad contact of the display flat cable.
I opened the DGX620 and then I cut a small piece of plastic film (35mm negative) with exactly the same width of the flat, disconnect the flat cable and then reconnected it using the film on the other side (non contact side) to increase the pressure and guarantee a good contact. No more problems from nov-2012 till now.

Good luck !

The disc spins and I can hear the audio but the screen remains blank. Also, the on screen controls (PLAT Fast Forward, etc) do not work either. This worked fine a week ago. Any suggestions?


There is a problem might be the screen cable which could be damaged or not seated correctly in its slot .need to be checked I recomend swapping of the cable to see its status .
If the cable is ok( mb contacts and screen) are good then swap screens your screen might be burnt or damaged .
and check the screen circutry for voltage regulator with a multimeter
it could be burnt .

Good luck

My monitor screen is ok for awhile but suddenly turns a dull yellow color. I just bought it a few months ago.

you must adjust the display settings in the software program that was being used to change the display setting.
  • If you have a flat panel LCD monitor, unplug the monitor power cable, wait about 30 seconds, reconnect the cable and then turn on the monitor. This resets the electronics on the monitor.
  • Make sure the monitor has power - the light on the monitor is on. If the light on the monitor is off, the monitor does not have power. Connect it to a different power outlet.
  • If the monitor has a detachable video cable, obtain a second monitor cable for testing purposes in case the cable is bad.
  • follw the another steps-
  • Replace the monitor power cable.
    1. Turn on the monitor. If the monitor displays an image, you are done. If the monitor remains blank, continue using these steps.
    2. Replace the video cable. Turn on the monitor. If the monitor displays an image, you are done. If the monitor remains blank, continue using these steps.
    3. If the monitor does not work after replacing the cables, replace or service the monitor

    Avic n-2 blank screen==cable upgrade done year ago

    I have seen Pioneer replaced ribbon cables fail in as little as 3 months. Rick on Ebay guarantee his cables for life or as long as you own it. His company name is Same Day Audio Services and he is very reliable. He will do it for around $100. Pioneer only replace it free for the first time, after that they might charge up to $220. Good luck.
    PS. I fix service and sell the Avic N series on Ebay.I get my part from Rick, mention Hogan from Utah and you might get a discount.

    Screen goes blank soon after switching on

    Try "Safe Mode" (holding F8 key on boot and selecting "Save Mode"), then run diagnostics and an up to date (virus definitions) Anti-Virus full scan.
    If Safe Mode is not accessible then you may want to consider a format and clean install by booting to your Windows (?) CD.

    Screen displays fine for a second, then goes blank

    Dor, BenQ has a 3yr warranty on their monitors. I would contact their tech support and receive an RMA to return it for repair. It will cost you shipping out there but they will ship it back. I has a BenQ FP731 myself and it blew a capacitor inside that allowed the screen to stay on. Fixed it and had it back in 5-7 days. Good luck.

    I have the same thing happening to me. Basically the screen sucks. I've had my phone just over a year so motorola no longer covers this phone under their warantee. What you can do is either contact your provider who may offer you an upgrade at a discounted cost or contact a local phone repair service. I got motorola's # from verizon at 1-800-331-6456 who does not have a repair service in my area. I could take 2 weeks and pay a $75 + dollar fee or just buy a new phone on ebay for less. Since it is only the screen the moto guy said you should be able to download the info to a computer and keep your contacts and photos, etc. Verizon might do this for you also.
