Question about Pioneer AVH-P5700DVD Car DVD Player
When i connect my rca to my amp it makes distorted sound..
This model of Pioneer has a common problem with a couple of fuses that are inside the unit mounted on the main circuit board that will blow. These are surface mounted fuses, and must be replaced with the same type of fuse. They are very small and white colored and require some good soldering skills and the proper soldering equipment do this job properly.
I work at an authorized Pioneer service center and have seen this problem many times. These units are very difficult to open up and work on. It is very easy to damage the ribbon cable that connects the flip out monitor to the main circuit board if not done perfectly.
What you can do as a work around for a short time, until you can get it in for repair, is this shortcut. It will restore your audio, but should not be considered a permanent fix.
At the amplifier (since it is easier to get at than the RCA cords coming out of the back of the Pioneer) you need to connect a jumper wire from the RCA ground on the jack to the power ground on the amplifier. The outer metal part of the RCA jack is the ground, the metal pin in the middle is the positive.
Remember, this is only a short term temporary work around and is not a permanent repair. You just need to supply the RCA output ground with a good ground.
The repair of replacing the surface mounted fuses can cost anywhere from $100 to $160, depending on the service center rates. Just don't wait too long, or play the amplifier too loud in the meantime.
