Re: secure mode

Secure mode is the anti theft function. Since you do not know what that is It suggests that you do not know the password. If that is the case then it seems like the unit is or has been stolen at one time. If you do not know the password then you have to bring the unit to a authorized Pioneer service center to have it reset. If the backup up sense wire is cut, or the system is disconnected from the vehicle, or if the reset button is pushed then the unit will ask for a password the next time it fires up.

Dual screen car dvd player screen problem

Hello badkitty13, I don't usually do this but I would suggest that if the unit is not worth repairing, you donate it to a local vocational school. The reason I say this is because the unit may have a loose solder connection, hence the wiggling of the cable cleared the problem. This would have been an easy issue to take care of. However, the 6 month storage period tells me the this unit is dated, and that means the chances of finding the proper documentation is slim to none. The unit may just need to have the connector resoldered, but is the cost worth it? Donating it will at least give the electronics repair persons of the future a chabce to practice working on such a unit. Thank you, Shuttle83
