I had the same problem with my Pioneer AVH-P4050DVD

Radio and CD worked fine

DVD would play and I could hear the audio but no video

USB and iPod. It would connect and I could brouse, select and play songs but I would not get any audio even though I could see the track playing, finnishing and moving on to the next one (very frustrating).

Front Aux (Aux 1). I could turn this port on to audio, select it and plus an audio sorce in but no audio would come out.

The solution..
The Pioneer AVH-P4050DVD is odd and different from most other pioneeres in that it has two earth leads that both need to be grounded (2 in addition to the handbreak wire). I had insalled my unit using a toyota - pioneer wireing adaptor I bought from Repco. This adaptor only grounded the wire coming from the corner of the plug (opposite the battery wire). The second earth is located becide the first earth, opposite the ignition wire. If you google pioneer 16 pin wiring diagram it might call this pin BGSENS (pin 13 in the attached photo). With the wireing harness I had this pin was not connected to anything. Once I grounded the second earth (soldered directly to the first earth) everything worked.

Good luck. Hope that helps.

SOURCE: Using Aux Input in a Pioneer AVH-5700DVD

I'm not sure what aux input you're using - but be advised that if you've plugged your mp4 player directly into the RCAs in the back that won't work - those are outputs, not inputs.

You need to use a Pioneer CD-RB10 (or CD-RB20 if you're running a cd changer, XM tuner, or any other IP-bus component) in order to get an auxiliary input.

If you've done that - you need to go to the initial settings menu and set aux input to 'on'. Instructions are in this link, page 89.

I have a pioneer AVH-P4100DVD receiver and I have an i-pod touch. I connected it to the head unit w/ the CD-IU200V cord and I can here music but I can't watch my movies off of it.


Shut the radio off. Touch top right of screen. Once done, hit AV Menue. Initial Setup. AUX1. Switch to Ipod. Once done should work. If not make sure the 3mm jack is plugged into the aux input into the back.

Background pics


On the AVH-P4000DVD you can NOT set your own jpgs as a background image. You are allowed to do this on the P4100.
I have read that you can view images if you are using an IPOD with the IPOD connection in the rear of the 4000, but you have to leave the thing connected at all times to see the pics.

How do i play video from usb on a Pioneer AVH-P4000DVD?


You can NOT view video using USB on this unit. Video has to come from the AV inputs (RCA connections) or from an IPOD connection. Sorry.

Video ipod


you have to get an iPod cable that gives you RCA outputs. Just connect the RCA outputs from the iPod to the AUX inputs on the unit. I believe that should do it. Ebay sells the iPod cables, and most electronics stores should as well
