    yesterday evening i decided to take apart the dash to see if there are any loose wires or anything, thinking maybe this is being caused by my compustar. i took it apart n looked at everything minus taking out the deck itself. i found no issues but then it started working once again and was working all night and this morning until about an hour ago, it starts flickering again and turns off and on. now it wont turn on again. the thing is it doesnt matter if the car is moving or not it still happens. you think it could still be the wire, or maybe its just my battery that is weak?

Sound lke a bad connection on the yellow pwer wire. That's the one that holds memory. Also, I have put many of those in and mn! Mega wies back there!! Also could be that the fuse holder on that wire has broken. I've seen that a million (well not that many) times. Botton lne, take out stereo, with vehicles power on, jiggle the main power harness and see if the problem is duplicated.Let me know.

    Doubtful. It could be a weak ground. What kind of vehicle is it? I still think you need to losen the deck to look behind it. I know, pain in the....It's strange that it worked longer this time. Did the presets reset again? Do you know if the video was bypassed on the unit to watch while driving? I wish I could "see" you when you open up the dash! Let me know.

    Man, I'm really trying. Have you checked for power at the units plug? Does it have 12 volts on both the yellow and red wires when key is on? Check for power by usng the units chasis for ground and probe the wires.

Dvd player

Sorry to let you know, but the AVIC D1 does not play movie DVDs. It only has a DVD ROM drive that reads Data DVDs, in other words the navigation DVDs. You will have to add your own DVD Player or a Pioneer DVD Changer to be able to watch movies with the AVIC D1.
