The unit started marking a clicking noise when turned on and later that day the navigation stopped working. The radio works and the rear camera works when I put the van in reverse, but otherwise the screen says to insert the appropriate disk. I will eject the navigation disk and reinsert and usually this is the message and when the disk runs it will say error 12. The clicking that I hear sounds like something spinning inside the unit that is rubbing. Pioneer Tech said it could be something that got stuck and maybe needed some lubrication. The only thing that I think could have caused it is that I hit a speed bump a little hard today in a parking lot. Any auggestions?

Right there with you, I have a avic d2 as well. my screen is not working at all. I work on stereos, and can not fix it myself, because Pioneer will not sell the ribbon cable needed to fix it. You must ship the unit to them, and pay $180 for a five minute repair. I used to buy only Pioneer, I have moved on to alpine. Pioneer has gone way, way down hill as soon as they stopped making there product in Japan.
what i did is, i went into the destination window and pressed the settings tab, then i pressed the hardware information after that i pressed the 3d calibration and then i cleared the section where it said hybrid 3d. after a while it worked fine.
If your pioneer AVIC car navigation unit does not register your touches or the wrong button is “pressed”, you need to re-calibrate your screen’s digitizer.
1-Hold the Eject button down until the face of the unit drops all the way 2-Using a pen hold down the reset button (just above the joystick) and the navigation disc eject simultaneously. 3-Release the reset button. 4-Release the dvd eject button next. The display will read “press reset” 5-Push the joystick up two times. 6-Push the joystick down twice. 7-Press the joystick in. 8-The service menu will appear after a short pause. You can navigate the service menu using the joystick. 9-Chose the first menu option and press in on the joystick. 10-Trace the screen with a stylus. 11-"P.ADJ" is the back button 12-Chose the second menu item in order to calibrate the touch screen. Use a stylus again and tap the "+" sign on the screen. (You may have to touch slightly off center if the digitizer is damaged. In which case things will still be off but it will be much better.)
Oh, I have the same problem. What the hell is that? I like all the futurs that Pioneer AVIC-D2 has and I get this problem after three years use of this unit. Please someone from Pioneer technical dep. could help us?
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.
