Question about Pioneer DV-F07 DVD Player
I own two of these dvd players. Both of the IR receivers have failed. The remotes work fine as I tested them with an IR card and they are both emitting an IR signal. It appears that the IR receivers have failed.
Is this an easy fix? Has anyone else had a similar problem? Could it be something else?
Since this posting is a year old, its probably no longer an issue.
Other than a fluorescent light shining directly on the IR sensor there are two possibilities. There should be nothing plugged into the rear "control jacks". If these have been used in the past, there is the possibility that the bypass contacts in the connector are either bent or dirty. Inserting a miniplug several times may clear the problem. These bypass contacts break the connection of the signals from the IR sensor to allow control from another unit's remote. If you at one time controlled this unit from an amplifier then disconnected the cable when upgrading the amp, your remote will not work until the cable is also removed from the control jack.
The other common problem is the RAM being corrupt. The only solution would be to reset the player to factory default. Unfortunately this will clear everything in RAM including setup information and all the disc information that you may have entered. If you have this serviced, the first thing they will do is a reset and your info will be gone anyway. To reset, turn power off, press and hold the stop button and press standby/on. That should do it. If not and you're sure the remotes are good then its time to have it professionally serviced.
