Pioneer DEH-P6900UB iPod Control

I have a DEH-P6900UB which I'm using to control a 5G ipod video. After around one month of working perfectly, the pioneer unit does not recognise the ipod. Whilst music can play, the ipod must be controlled manually, and the pioneer display reads "Error -11". I looked this error up in the documentation, and it supposedly corresponds to a communication error. Any thoughts on why this would suddenly start happening or how to fix it?

Re: Pioneer DEH-P6900UB iPod Control

My suggestion is that the ipod-connector is bad. Try changing the ipod connector. If that doesn't work, unplug your Pioneer device for 24 hours, and then plug it back in. This will reset all the configuration options and should reset the devices that it recognizes. If that doesn't work, try calling Pioneer's support.

Good luck!

Where do i find the port to plug in my usb for my ipod?

behind the unit where the connection wires are, is a black cable that has a usb plug in the end of it. although to play ipods in the unit, pioneer recommend using the CD-iU50 adapter cable. a normal ipod cable may work with certain ipods so i would try that first. I am pretty certain that it just wont charge certain ones. if you bought the unit new it should have had a usb extender cable included in the box.
to access the cable you will need to remove the source unit to plug in your ipod cable.
i hope i have helped you and please dont forget to rate.

Pioneer DEH-P9300 and Ipod Adapter Problem

The correct iPod adapter for this is the CD-IB100ii, not the PAC piece you bought. With the correct adapter you will be able to charge your iPod, get text and control from the head unit, and of course audio playback through your system.

AUX input on Pioneer DEH P31000

There is a plug on the back called an IP-BUS. You should be able to hook the ipod directly up to that with a simple homemade adapter. I built one for mine and it works fine.

Did you format it while connected to a PC? If so check that you didn't format as NTFS, the Pioneer HU can only read FAT32 I think.
