Re: avh p5700dvd ..Noisy distorted sound from RCA output
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.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

well here we go how do you have your pioneer radio connected . did you run the radio speaker wire out to the factory speaker or did you have an amp connected to the rca output jacks.
1 well if the radio connect by the speaker wire out the output chip in the radio is fried and needs repair ....
2. if u have a amp connected to power your speakers for sound check the amp to make sure you have power and no lose connection or speaker wires disconnected. 3. it also possible that the rca jacks are fried too
I no by experience that pioneer loses ground on the audio output jack (rca) well what we did to fix it is.. take and 18 gauge wire stripe back about 1/2" to 1" of the insulation to expose the copper wire and wrap this around the metal casing of the rca jacks and then ground the wire to a ground point do this for both left and right rca jacks...
i have a pioneer AVH-P6300BT but im not sure if i have i connected correctly with my amp. my speakers just dont seem to be pushing the power i know they can. so for starters which wire is the remote wire? i have the RCA's connected to the one that is labeled"Subwoofer output" is this correct? The wiring diagram also talks about connecting to the violet and violet/black wires for the subwoofers whats this for?
If you are talking about the cable I think you are, all you do is plug the red and white rca into the input of your choice on the back of your radio and the other end into your choice of audio output (anything with that size headphone port).
there is diodes that you can change to stop the noice or even a capisitor but not fuses. if you look at the capsitors see if the tops of them are buldging or leaking. that is a sign of them being bad and will need to be replaced. the ones you want to look for will be right were the rca's come into the radio from the back.
The hard way, if you have the skill, is to replace the speakers. The bad news is that this probable won't fix it as it is likely that it is internal noise causing the distortion.
there is an easy solution that will probable work. Using the audio output connection you could hook it up to a stereo system or boom box and use those for sound. the only thing technical is making sute your cord has the right connectors/adapters on each end. take a picutre or a good look at both devices audio connectors (output on the TV, input on the Stereo/boombox) and the salesman at your local electronics store should be able to help you find just what you need. at a guess you will likely need an RCA female to RCA female cord or an RCA to stereo mini male.
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
