Question about Pioneer AVH-P6500DVD Car DVD Player

1 Answer

Camry shudders and quivers when idle, sometimes dies.

Only after driving fast (65-70 mph) for an extended period of time (20+ minutes), my 1996 Camry will have issues while slowing down/stopping. The engine dies and I have to choke the engine for several seconds, praying that my car starts again so the line of cars behind me doesn't run me over.

When I'm idle, the car shudders and quivers as if it's about to stall (it's an automatic), then usually eventually does. However, if I tap the gas or start moving, the problem is solved. Sometimes I smell the scent of something, but I'm not very familiar with cars so I can't determine what the smell is. It smells similar to gasoline, maybe.

Have you had your fuel filter changed? If it is clogged it will take more pressure to operate properly so when you give it gas and it runs better might be an indication it needs to be changed. If you are getting too much gas might be flooding and the computer needs to be checked. But when you said it runs better when you give it gas I would think fuel filter.

I have a clarion double din max675vdii and it is locked but i have the right code now but i cant get the incorrect code reading to go away so i can type it in...any help??

You may need to drive around for about 20 minutes. Mine is locked out since my battery had died on my car, and the people I bought the car from don't know the password. So about every 20 minutes or so of driving it lets me give one try. Clarion says the only way I can reset it without the password is to get it uninstalled and pay for shipping all the way across the country to their office where they will reset it, and pay for shipping all they way back here again, and then pay for the uninstall and reinstall fees at the audio shops here. Thats way too much money and effort for this stereo.

JVC avx33 bluetooth greyed out

The bluetooth problem has resolved itself after I was away for a week and my car battery died. After I boosted my car and drove around to charge the battery the bluetooth icon works again without a reset message coming up. Because the unit was without power for an extended period it must have reset the memory although it did keep my original bluetooth device that was paired before the problem.

Someone on here also mentioned pressing the reset button for 10 secs which might perform the same thing.

Hope this helps anyone else having the same problem I've been having for months now.

DVD stop playing after 20 minutes

Hi Liorpe,

It is possible the Laser is not sliding all the way up and down its rails. Lint , dust, screws sometimes get in the way of the lasers travel to completely read a disc. They do start at the center of the disc and read outward. Sounds like if it will do 20 minutes or so and then quit, its not a heat problem so much as your laser has only 20 minutes of dvd play travel on it rails before it gets stuck. Seen it bunch.
