Pioneer XR-P2500C Display Does Not Light

I got my mini component stereo back from my brother in law and after some time in his garage the digital displays no longer light up. The leds on the board do but not the LCDs. The unit functions ok but you just can't tell what track is playing on the CD or what radio station it is tuned to. I figure it must be something simple but I do not see any blown fuses or unplugged harnesses. It is pretty dusty inside. I will try to clean it and see if that helps. Any ideas other than that? Thanks!

If the discs PHYSICALLY get stuck, then the mech is damaged. A local shop MAY be able to fix it, but it might be a better investment to just replace the radio.

I don't own a pioneer cd unit, but you can go to pioneerelectronics.com and download one for your particular model. Hope this helps...

SOURCE: alpine cda7969r display problem

Hi trinder,
I fixed my Alpine TDA-7563 with the same problem. My display was completely blank everything else worked. After checking that the LCD display is getting power and everything else in the face that I can think of, I thought maybe the rubber LCD contacts were squeezed down or something and not making proper contact, so I just pushed it back onto the board and pressed.
This was at night, so I had an external lamp and noticed to my delight that the display was in fact working, nothing is wrong with it.
I am embarrased to say that as a technician I forgot that an LCD display needs a backlight, duh.
So a simple connectivity test on the 2 lamps shows that they are both blown.
I have to source them at my local electronics store, I measured the power supply to them as 12Volts, so it is just a matter of getting ones with the right dimensions and bright enough.
Hope you have the same problem, then it will be an easy fix for you.
Good luck,
Ramesh

SOURCE: Error Codes

I've had a friend to stay who had this problem. I downloaded the user manual from the internet and the error code is not mentioned. I followed the procedure to reset the radio and this solved the problem.

Take the cover off the stereo and locate the small hole (towards the centre) which houses the reset switch. Insert something like a paper clip into the hole and hold for a few seconds. Then replace the cover and all should work. You'll loose all the radio presets.

How do i connect my iPod to a Pioneer Car Stereo


<p>It is advisable to listen to your iPod through headphones while driving in the car. Not only is it dangerous to completely cancel the sounds of the road as it is often illegal in many cities across the country. There is an alternative, however. In just a few steps you can use your iPod to your car stereo speakers and use the car to listen to your music, podcasts and audiobooks. No brand car stereo makes it easier to connect these beautiful than Pioneer. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Connect one end of the mini-jack on your iPod headphone jack. Once done, set your iPod or on your dashboard or your car seat so that it will not tip over while driving. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Find your sound system's auxiliary input Pioneer. It is often located in front of the front panel stereo, but can also open the front or back of the unit completely. If the extra connector on the back of the stereo itself, then you remove the panel. When it comes to this, see the instructions that came with your sound system is provided for further guidance. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Connect the other end of the cable mini-jack for stereo aux port. This will allow your iPod to the audio signal through the cable to the stereo and the stereo signal will pass to the car speakers. Most often, when something is plugged into the stereo aux jack will work in stereo. In some models a setting to select the additional connection. Whatever the case, now you can sit and enjoy your iPod for that long car ride. <br />

Unit is always shutting down / turning off


Try first unplugging power cable for five minutes and using a different power outlet, if you still get the problem, the unit has a faulty power supply on the board inside.

I have a AIWA XR-MDS7 EZ sup mini stero unit, the lcd display is dead although the unit works I cannot tell what disc is playing or track number. Also I cant tell what radio station is playing. Everything...


The first thing to check is the solder connections on the display itself. Look specifically at the connections on either end of the display. These are the supply pins. Also, I don't know if this model has an LCD display or LED. If LCD, then make sure that the back light is funtioning.
Keep us posted on what you find.

Digital Audio moved from TV/SAT to DVD/LD


Using the remote control, push the left arrow until display shows Coax1 (or 2, depending on your setup), then push the up arrow to set it to TV/SAT.
Conversely, depending on your setup, you can push the left arrow to display Comp1 (or2) then push the up arrow to set the correct video setting-- DVD/LD I assume.
