Question about Pioneer AVIC-Z1 Car DVD Player
I recently purchased a car with the AVIC already installed. Love the nav, radio works fine, plan to start using the Sirius that is already installed. HATE that I cannot play a single CD. The front panel open, the unit accepts the disc, does that lovely humming, then I get an 'unreadable disc' message. Same for DVDs, burned CDs, originals, etc. Yet when I look at the front screen, everything that is set up is highlighted, including the CD Library, but not the CD/DVD. I took the car to the local car electronics store who told me that the disc drive would need to be replaced/repaired, but nothing more (other than try to sell me a much more expensive replacement unit. I don't care if I can read/watch DVD's on this unit; the local radio stations stink and I'd like to download and listen to my own CDs. Can anyone help? From some people here and on other sites, getting help from Pioneer is either a waste of time or expensive, and I would rather not have to purchase an entire unit if I can hellp it. Are there any sites or companies that will repair the disc unit rather than mean that I would have to replace the entire unit? There are people on sites like EBay (see this link: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&item=120355121247) that advertise that they will repair the unit - has anyone tried them? They're feedback is pretty positive. the dvd does not work. It says unreadeable disk. have not been able to operate the dvd at all
