Question about Pioneer DEH-P690UB CD Player
Hi there, i have the above stereo and am having problem tuning to certain stations. i can tune odd frequency stations such as 98.1 or 102.7 but can seem to tune to a even number station such as 104.2 or 102.2. it seems to only scan odd numbers. jumps from 98.1 to 98.3 and doesnt pick up 98.2. i have set it to LOC off and tested with all 4 levels available and still no joy!!!! coul dyou please HELP as i cant listne to my favourite stations and cant get traffic reports every morning ;(
Pioneer have factory set your DEH-P690UB to 0.2Mhz steps to match the American FM frequency allocations. The fix is not casual as it requires complete disassembly of the head unit and repositioning of two surface mount resistors. This will void any warrantee and unless you're good at microscopic soldering could also ruin the set. I did however void my 2 year warrantee yesterday partly out of frustration and because I have the right SMT tools at work. Now my tuner CPU thinks it's in the Austrailian/Asian model DEH-P7950UB and is also compatible with UK stations. A previously hidden menu is also available where I can set either 0.1 or 0.05Mhz stepping for FM and 9 or 10KHz for AM BSM scanning. The rotary control now steps in 0.05's instead of odd 0.2's on FM Hope this helps.

Pioneer DEH-7950UB can only support hard drives which draws current of 500mA Maximum. If your hard drive consumes more than that, it will not read the HD. However, external HDs have power adapters to compensate the power needed.

Look for a small switch on the side or top or bottom or back of the unit that will switch the frequency "jumps". You will have to pull the radio out of the dash in order to see the switch and they are usually behind a small rectangular hole and do not protrude outside the case of the unit. If you have an owners manual it will tell you exactly where this switch is. Good luck.
