Question about Pioneer AVIC-N2 Car DVD Player

1 Answer

Avic n2 I have had an AVIC N2 for a year now. The screen stopped working so I sent it in, paid 200 bucks. Got it back and now when I connect it back up, the screen lights upfor about 5 seconds and the screen slides out, but then nothing comes on the screen and none of the lights are on. It appears to be dead until you turn off the key to the car. Then it lights up again, and the screen slides back in..... Before I sent it in at least all of the hard buttons and sources worked. Now I get nothing. What could it be?

Re: avic n2

Ok are you sure you connected it up exactly as B4? Check it, any Fuses, Connections etc. If ya have,& it's OK, then I would be very cross at the Shop that charged ya $200.00 and it's still faulty... Don't muck around send it, or if possible take it, back and complain long and loud... this is really unacceptable. If you were my customer I would be bending over backwards to help.

Notice: Upgraded Flex-Cable for Flip Screen in Navigation Models AVIC-N1 and AVIC-N2 To: January 3, 2007 Dear Valued Customer: Re: Upgraded Flex-Cable for Flip Screen in Navigation Models AVIC-N1 and AVIC-N2 We would like to inform you of a potential service issue with Pioneer's AVIC-N1 and AVIC-N2, inform you of our plans to resolve this service issue, and ask for your help in notifying consumers. If a consumer is not experiencing any issues currently, there is no need for the consumer to take immediate action because the one-time fix to resolve the service issue will be available if an AVIC-N1 and AVIC-N2 later experiences the service issue. _Importantly, the service issue does not pose any health or safety risk._ Pioneer is aware of a potential issue with the flex-cable powering the flip screen to the AVIC-N1 and the AVIC-N2. After a number of power cycles, the cable has been observed to fail and cause the unit to malfunction (symptoms may include, but are not limited to, the flip-screen becoming blank) -- flex-cable failure can only be confirmed by Pioneer; standard service charges may apply for service issues not related to the flex-cable upgrade. This issue may affect almost all AVIC-N1 units and AVIC-N2 units. Please contact Pioneer at the number listed below if you have a question about whether your AVIC-N1 or AVIC-N2 unit is affected by this issue, or if a specific malfunction affecting your AVCI-N1 or AVIC-N2 is related to this issue. To address this issue, Pioneer is providing a one-time cable upgrade to consumers for their AVIC-N1 and AVIC-N2 at no charge to consumers for parts and labor. Pioneer will offer the free upgrade either upon request or automatically if an affected unit is serviced for another reason. Pioneer will exclusively perform the free cable upgrade for all units (i.e., no other service facility should perform the cable upgrade). If you own an AVIC-N1 or AVIC-N2 and you are experiencing the service issue, please contact Pioneer Customer Service toll free at 800-421-1603 to arrange for the cable upgrade. Pioneer service representatives are available Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. (Eastern Time). Customers who have paid for the cable upgrade are eligible for reimbursement of certain service costs if sufficient proof of service can be provided -- please contact Pioneer at the above-listed phone number for more information regarding reimbursement rules. Customers can also review FAQs regarding this service issue. Click here to view the FAQs. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this service issue may cause you, and we thank you for your cooperation and continued support of Pioneer.

Call Pioneer. This is a Ribbon cable issue that they are well aware of. It has happened to counless units and they offer a free one time fix for this issue. I dont know that they will honor it because you didnt buy it from a dealer but its worth a shot man. Good luck.

You have to bypass the Parking Safety feature. Here is the info I have found. I have not verified it myself for accuracy, so use at your own risk. AVIC-N2 lockout bypass: Underneath the MAIN unit (not the hideaway) is a small silver sticker, peel this back. There are two contacts with the label "R197". Drop a bit of solder between these to connect them. Also, you must ground the Parking Brake wire.

AVIC-N2 dies after year and a half

Contact Tech Support for Pioneer. They have a call back on the Flex Cable which is the source of all your problems. It took 2-3 weeks for the repairs. Although, now I have a problem with the screen rolling out.

Pb with my pioneer avic N2

Definitly the ribbon cable. Pioneer will replace it one time for free but if you perfomed the by pass solder they will replace the board and charge you $200. The guy on Ebay will do it for $69 plus shipping.
