Question about Pioneer DEH-P3000 CD Player
Hi. Someone (I think it was nhmteam) posted a problem with this unit and an ipod cable he had. It would seem that he had the cable and his ipod worked fine with the stereo unit until one day his car battery died and his ipod no longer worked. His DEH-P3000 used to display "AUX" for source, but after the dead battery "AUX" was replaced with "M-CD". someone suggested he disconnect the battery for an hour or so and that should fix it, but if it did not he was probably having trouble with the microprocessor. I have the same unit. It has been sitting in a box for years and I decided to hook it up to use as a radio for my pool area. It works fine in that capacity. I decided to get the ipod cable that pluggs into the IP-Bus port in the back so the kids could use their ipods for pool music. The cable pluggs in fine but does not work. As with the original posting, I do not have "AUX" as a source/input option either, only "CD", "FM/AM", or "M-CD". Since the unit only has power to it when the power converter is switched on, I feel the problem is something else, like the microprocessor suggested in the first post, but I do not know how to go about fixing it. My manual does not make mention of "AUX" as an option, and I cannot rule out the possibility that the cable itself is defective. Any help you can give is appreciated.
Hi, On a slightly different model and only if you would venture to try: with the iPod via cable plugged to the iP-Bus port and the unit powered off but the powersupply on - 1. press and hold for a couple of seconds the Function button (FUNC) or till the clock starts to flash; 2. the arrow keys (left/right) will move you through the different menu settings; 3. the arrow keys (up/down) will move you through the different selection for each setting; 4. look for source, external, AUX, iPod or whatever will be displayed which may refer to an external input; 5. soon as you have enabled/set the AUX, press and hold the FUNC button while turning the unit on. This will save the current setup. Hope this also work for your DEH-P3000. Good luck and kind regards.
