Question about Pioneer Car Audio & Video
It is not showing the screen, it will play music but will not power up fully. I do not have a charger, for it is always connected in the vehicle and to the radio. Am I missing something, we purchased the vehicle with it already installed.

Certainly, the output IC might need to be replaced, also check to see if there is a factory amp somewhere in the car. Additionally, double-checking the wiring is a must. How long does it take for the unit to heat up?

SOURCE: Pioneer PD-206 wont power up
Try disconnecting from the power and powering it up again to reset the unit.
If it still wont cooperate, the unit will have popped a IC protector in the power supply. Not an uncommon fault. The burnt disc you used may have pushed the tracking servos a little hard and a circuit protector has kicked it. Pop the lid off and look for a black 2 wire device about 4mm across that viewed from above has a D shape. Measure it with an ohm meter....It should read low ohms, if it does not... it has failed. It may be marked as ICPxx(from memory)
A fast fix we used for this is to grab the device and give it a 200 deg twist to short the legs together. Soemtimes(often) the body of the device will break off, just solder the legs left behind.
They have a habit of failingl with no reason, and shorting across them will not affect the operation of the unit, nor put it anything in jeopardy.
OR pull the board out... and replace the device, although I can tell you through experience, they may fail again.
Good luck, if you have any questions, just get back to

SOURCE: phone does not charge
When my phone is connected to the charger, it says fully charged. But as soon as I disconnect the charger, the battery shows empty. When I connect the phone to the charger, it starts charging but after 10 seconds it says fully charged.

SOURCE: no sound from speakers
did you check to make sure your vehicle didnt come with a factory amp, if it has one is it turning on? or did you remember to disconnect the negative battery cable while installing your radio, i know thats a dumb question, once i was installing a pioneer a barely crossed a couple wires and fried the radio, the radio itself worked fine and all the features etc, but it never did play sound again. i always disconnect the power now!!
