Question about Pioneer AVH-P7480DVD Car DVD Player

1 Answer

Wont power up!

I bought a used dvd player from a friend who claimed it worked prior. When I got it it was missing parts. I had to buy the 16-pin power/speaker harness for the brain unit and the antenna extension whire. I have everything wired propery (checked with test light). The in-dash unit has power to it (security light flashes) but the unit will not power up when ign is turned on. What cables are need to be connected to the units?? I have the power harness on the DVD player, and the power harness on the brain as well as the IP-BUS cable. is it possible I need another cable that is missing when I got the unit?? is an RGB cable needed or is that just for and add-on?? I have the manual but it doesn't list the "Parts Lists" Thanks!! Matt

The dvd player wont turn on, we just bought the car and theirs no manuals

Get a multimeter and test the white connector to the unit under your driver seat. The red wire is power and the black is ground. If you have power there then check the unit for power. Remove the DVD player and check the individual element pins for power. On my unit the second terminal from the right is power and should measure 0.4V. If you have power there too, then it is probably your ribbon cable broken in the hindge or the DVD player itself may be defective. You can plug in a 12V source and check the DVD player outside the car to see if your probably is there.

Wiring uv7i

you can use the deck without a remote, the only thing is you cant go into the system without the codes. there is a sequence code you must enter to disable it. there are a couple of videos on youtube but none for the uv7i. trust me, i 've been there on and off since the summertime. i am not sure if the sequence works due to me not hooking it up to external monitors but you can disable the blue screen with a on/off switch...only problem is, you'll have to do it everytime you turn your car on. here's what you do....
buy a on/off switch(radio shack $3)
hook the pink wire to one part of the switch-the other to the negative ground
put a dvd in(from what i hear, it must be store brought), wait unntil the blue screen comes up
turn the switch off...wait two seconds/turn on...wait two seconds/turn off...wait two seconds and turn back on. the blue screen is gone and video is on. ifyou still need the diagram, i'll scan mine for you.

I have found that copied dvd's don't always work properly and even the slightest blemish or scratch renders it inop also it is illegal to sell a copied disc as it infringes copyright, I understand that the genuine disc's are expensive but you get what you pay for.
