This implies the laser in the dvd can't read your disk, and says "No disk". Try cleaning the laser first, it'll look like an led. Unplug and disassemble then use a cotton bud with isopropol alcohol, or metho. If this doesn't work, the laser may be dead and it'll just be a surround sound unit then!
this pioneer unit is just a CD player with a TV screen/monitor there is no DVD player in it. in order to watch a DVD you need to get the DVD player (sold separately) also its 6yrs old...it was really good in 2003 but since then there have been units that have a DVD,CD,navigation slot built in (this unit has a CD player built in only this means you cant put a DVD in the slot) if its selling for under $150 buy it if there asking over this i would wait and buy a newer system with everything just remember the DVD player for this unit is another cost so you may be paying just as much for this as you would for a newer unit........ so for me to answer your question its an OK unit and there haven't been to many problems with it except the complaints to pioneer about having to buy the DVD player separately........info for you in 2003 this avh-p6400cd sold for $499 but not to many people knew that they had to buy the units DVD player which was sold separately for $359
hope this has helped your deside
No ....go to a hardware store buy a toggle switch than get a single speaker wire (small wire) attach it to the red wire on the back of your pioneer deck (make sure to leave the red wire in back of deck as well) and attach it to the power on the toggle switch do the same with the black wire (ground wire) the black wire will go into the toggle switch under the power wire. finally install the parking break wire from the pioneer unit to the last slot on toggle switch and this should do the trick if not swap the ground spot for the brake spot on toggle switch >>>> MAKE SURE THE TOGGEL SWITCH HAS 3 HOOK UPS to do this correctly (your system will provide sound with the toggle switch off (Blue Screen) but when toggle switch is on you get video while driving) good luck
Hi There, I've got the same problems with my DV 285. My power started going off approximately 5 to 10 minutes into the DVD. The only button that seems to work is the OPEN/CLOSE button. Once the tray closes, the unit shuts off. I can't even use the on/standby button to turn it on.
I could not record DVD-R's on my 633H.
Calling Pioneer I was told that I had to use DVD-R's rated no more than 4X.
I ordered 4X DVD blanks and have not had a problem since.
However, when I told the service man at the hi-end store where I bought the unit what Pioneer had said and that it fixed my problem, he said it was baloney and to bring it in and he'd have them fix it - that it should handle DVD's supporting higher write speeds.
I didn't take it in as the 4X blanks are cheaper and I don't want anyone mucking around in my machine when it is working OK..
You need to identify the four wires that carry the DVD audio in the factory plug, and re-wire them to RCA plugs that can be used with the Auxiliary input RCA jacks on your Pioneer unit.
The four wires should be:
Left (+) light green
Left (-) white
Right (+) red
Right (-) black
The easiest way is to purchase some inexpensive RCA cables (or better yet, speaker wire with RCA ends). Cut the cables and wire the center pin conductor wires to the (+) audio wires in the stock plugs, and connect the outer shield conductors to the (-) wires. Then connect the RCA plugs to your head unit's auxiliary input jacks.
