Question about Pioneer AVIC-N2 Car DVD Player
My AVIC-N2 powers on okay and the motorized screen comes out fine but the screen is BLANK (what a surprise?)
Pioneer knows about the screen ribbon problem and they used to offer free replacements...Do they still offer this service??
Yes they will replace the ribbon cable for free for only one time. but if you did the bypass mod they will unmod it and charge you $200 for doing it. In that case you better of send it to that guy Rich with Same Day Audio Service on Ebay, he will fix it with his company manufactured milspec ribbon cable for I think $85. His cables are much higher quality than Pioneer's and come with a free lifetime warrantee if you have it perform by him or you can purchase the cable from him and put it in by yourself but he won't guarantee it if you do. It not very hard to do if you are a little bit technical incline. I bought a few cables and replaced them myself with the Ribbon Cable Exhausted Tutor Guide on AVIC411.com, but I have figured out a much easier way to do it. Let me know if you need help. Goodluck to you.

If anyone is out of their Pioneer warranty, we can fix your avic and bring it back to new! Included with the repair, we will upgrade you to the latest software, and your N2 will perform like a N3 with N5 maps!

Copy and paste this.
It is information for replacement of the flexcable and appears to be an upgrade.

Hi. I just re-installed a replacement ribbon cable for this same Pioneer unit. I tell you that without the exploded diagram from Pioneer I'd be lost. Anyway, you have to remove the assembly in order to get the cable out and replace it. Get with me and I'll show you how to disassemble your unit.

Hi! i have read and searched everywhere. not much info on my unit itself but , i am about to do a ribbon replacement for this unit. just ordered it for $15plus 10 ship. what id like to do is get some info on removal. have any helpful advice? and also important is do u possibly know if i will need to solder? i have read/been told both yes and no. so far i have removed one side of ribbon cable(side that connects to flipdown face). looks to have an IDC socket connector which is held onto flipdown with 2 metal/bend clips. looks like the ribbon cable just sticks on(or with adhesive?) to IDC socket connector? as for the other side that goes into the unit i am not sure. from what i have read it should just slip in there somewhere, or do i have to disassemble parts of the front of main unit? well thanx in advance hope u can help!
