Re: Display

From an Email from Pioneer:
This has to do with the Reverse Demo Feature:
If do not perform an operation within 30 seconds, screen indications
start to reverse, and then continue reversing every 10 seconds.
With the unit turned off, but vehicle running or on ACC, use Multi-Control and select Reverse Mode. Turn Reverse Mode 'off'.

It's worked for me so far.....

I have a problem with my display. For some reason the display contrast changes every 15-20 seconds and it's very annoying when driving at night. For example, most of the colours are usually black or...

It sounds like you have the Reverse mode on. You need to set your car's ignition to ACC and turn your radio Off. Then, press the "5" button once. You will hear a beep and the mode should be turned off. Hope this helps.

2nd display background changes from black to white at intervals


The change in the backgroung color of the OEL display is totally normal. This funtion lets the display works in two modes rather than only one to prevent OEL display damage, it is like a screen saver. I had the same model I bought

Could you tell me what is the colour of illumination

This unit has a multi- colored display that you can load your own custom backgrounds in the following formats:

jpl: for large size still images

jpm: for small size still images

jpa: for large size animations

jpb: for small size animations

jpw: for ImageLink

You can display two sizes of pictures and
animations .

– Large: <jpl> for the still pictures and <jpa>
for the animations;
The image can be shown as the display

– Small: <jpm> for the still pictures and
<jpb> for the animations;
The image is displayed like a CD jacket (in
the same proportion of CD jacket).

The buttons light up Blue and are not changeable.

Not sure what model you have, but there are several DISPLAY options that can be cycled thru using the DISP key on most models.

Best of Luck.

Display colour

Mine would do the same thing. What you need to do is turn the unit off and it should go into demo mode. There is an option for "reverse mode on or off" make sure it is turned off. I beleive you will have to hit the band button to change it.

Has it always been like this? I know that the display inverts automatically to save the life of the OEL...otherwise the brightness of the same pixels being on all the time will cause the OEL to 'burn-in' If that isn't the problem, the OEL is going bad. They can run about $100 and usually aren't worth repairing.
