Question about Pioneer AVIC-D3 Car DVD Player

1 Answer

Speakers & Ipod

I've had my D3 for around 3 months. About 1 out of every 10 times I start my car the speakers will not turn on, only the sub will initialize. Any solutions for this?

Another problem I have is that my Ipod connection if very low quality. It seems to be very crackly like an fm connection even though it's connected via pioneer's ipod cord for the D3. Help?

Not sure which ipod you are using but be sure to use the backlight on the ipod (always on) when you have it connected. It eliminates certain noise heard in the background. Also be sure the level is calibrated how you need it, turn up or down the input level using the SLA adjustment from the sound menu item. It allows you do adjust from as much as +4 louder or decrease it as low as -4. You might either have the signal being too low or too loud causing clipping. Also be sure your ipod has updated firmware, there are certain fixes that address battery, hard drive noise, etc on the units. It may also be your ipod has issue, try using it in someone else's vehicle or try it on another dock connector to test the levels there.

The speakers work fine apart from the sub component has lost all volume u can hear it very faintly if u turn the volume to full and the bass control to max. I've taken the sub apart to some extent...


Appears that the map powering the sub woofer is fubar. Those amps take a beating usually from being over driven. Transistors are not like tubes that will just reach a limit, distort, and stay there. You push a transistor and it will self destruct since it knows no limits ala evel knevil.

Subwoofer clicks and quits


The power amp that drives the subwoofer has quit. This will require repair. It is likely that the replacement you got from Ebay was defective as well. Not un-expected as I get stuff to repair from there all the time.

Your original unit failed in a manner to shut down the power supply. The replacement has a good power supply but a only fried sub amp.

No pic when ipod plugged in


Have you gone through the settings on the d3? Most pioneers have a setting in the setup menu to turn on ipod video.

Pioneer AVIC-D3 Audio Problems


Sounds like a problem with the sound chip in the stereo. Disconnect the rca cables from the subs and check to see if the audio returns. If so. try using a different rca connection in the back. Also i think on them radio's if there is a built in sub drive you need to turn that off if you are using a amp to run the subs.

No sound from subs and rear speakers...


Make sure the Ipod is plugged into the AV input source. Then you may have to go through the menu to select AV1 or AV2 input. This should take care of the problem. Good luck

Ipod problems with Pioneer AVIC-D3


Do you have an ipod module or are you using ibus-to-rca cable to connect your ipod to the D3? In order to control full ipod functions by touch screen you need the ipod module, hence the D3 says ipod control ready not ipod control built in. Let me know so I can pin point the problem.

Check your EQ setting for each source, sometime on certain unit each source can have it own setting. May be try to reset it by disconnect the battery and reconnect. If you still have a remained warranty, contact Pioneer and send it in for service. Hope that would help.

No sound no nothing !


make sure :
1- the the speakers are connected to the sub woofer correctly
2- the sound driver is installed on your computer ( you can check that from Device Manager )
3- that you connected the sub woofer jack to the correct jack of your computer
4- the volume parameter is set to highest in your computer

if nothing works out then i suggest connecting the speakers to another device ( like ipod or mp3 player )

if either this won't work then the speakers are obviously corrupted :)

Cerwin Vega ve-28s subwoofer and new Cervin Vega 2-way satellites


I bought my VE-28s and it did exactly that crackled, cerwin replaced part in amp but few months later problem persisted. they then replaced entire amp assembly and its been fine. i really push it to and its been fine. to test it, unplug the connection from amp/ reciever and see if it persists. if so its the sub, if not its the amp/ reciever. dont dump it, these subs really crank and can put out some deep loud bass.
