Question about Pioneer AVIC-N2 Car DVD Player

Pioneer AVIC-N2 Blank screen and noop faceplatge buttons...

Hey bud how are you??....I called Pioneer and indeed they still offer ribbon replacement if I send the unit in....I checked the silver sticker at the bottom of the unit and it's still intact....So I have no idea if the "bypass" was done previously or not since I bought this unit to fix (along with the hide-away brain)...Also none of the faceplate functions work (except the clock function button)...I have to disconnect the power to power the unit off...I have it connected at home to a battery for the testing - never installed it on a car yet...

So what do you suggest?? should I send the unit to Pioneer for the ribbon replacement?? I don't believe the "bypass" was ever done but I could be wrong....Ho can they charge $200 if I never authorize the work?? If that happens I will not pay them and take the loss...It's not really worth it to me...I paid $100 for BOTH units....What do you suggest?? Is it okay to call you directly if I have more questions and when it's a good time for you?? Thanks again for your help....Vasilis K.

Ribbon Problem


blueice-electronics.com.uk
parts are reasonable but shipping is high. Ribbon cables are about $25 US but you will pay that much to ship, and then wait forever for it to clear customs.

I was able to get 4 of them but it took a month to get them in. You can also get them on ebay.

The right side on my pioneer DJM 600 (effects do not work)


Hiya,

If you are confident with opening up the mixer, do so, and check the ribbon cable which goes from the effects switch board to the main PCB in the middle of the unit. Check it is secure and hasn't come loose with movement or vibration. If it is all secure, and still not working, you will need to send it for repair to your local service centre / tech friend :)

Cheers

AVIC N2 parking brake bypass


There are two ways to complete this project:

1st

underneath the mounting bracket of the radio not the brain theres a silver sticker like mentioned above there are two silver solder points right beneath the sticker it must be jumped with a wire or you can use the solder to connect the two contact points after this you must still ground the green parking brake wire to the car.


2nd-(also my favorite choice and the one I'm using on my N5 & on my 7800dvd those who know pioneer know what i'm talking about)

buy a ptr7 pheriphial device and wire as follows (they come factory ready to bypass alpine and pioneer units)

wire as follows-white wire to green parking break of the deck your bypassing
red wire to vehicles 12v source
green wire from device to remote
black wire to vehicle ground wire
final important step I know because this happended to me
make sure you take a little screwdriver agfter wiring or something and switch the
PTR 7 to the off position-or else this will make the PTR7 not function correctly

Does Pioneer still offer FREE replacement screen ribbon cables??


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.

Mi n2 does not work!!


Call Pioneer. This is a Ribbon cable issue that they are well aware of. It has happened to counless units and they offer a free one time fix for this issue. I dont know that they will honor it because you didnt buy it from a dealer but its worth a shot man. Good luck.

Yellow screen


I can only offer a guess as to what is causing this problem. The unit's LCD screen is powered by a flat ribbon cable, which can sometimes be seen from the top of the unit as the screen is sliding out. Try observing the cable as the screen is sliding out. If you can see any cracks in the cable, it needs to be replaced. Unfortunately, you will have to send it in to Pioneer to have that done. This issue is a known problem to Pioneer. If it is indeed the flex cable, they should replace it for free with a 5-7 day wait. The screen having a yellowish tint can be a sign that this cable is about to fail. I wouldnt worry about it now if you can still see your screen fine but if the screen goes out or gets worse, I would try to send it in to Pioneer to see if they will replace that cable for you. The URL of the page that explains this issue is http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/pna/v3/pg/top/cat/article/0,,2076_310069579_395713842,00.html Good luck with your unit.

Warranty or send replacement part


If the unit is under warranty call Pioneer Electronics customer service and get the info from them to send it back. If the unit is no longer under warranty Pioneer can tell you were the closest repair center is to you, but be willing to shell out big $$ to have it fixed. If you are technically inclined, buy a service manual and try and fix it yourself. Or there is a person on Ebay offering repair service for this kind of problem. I think it's about $ 120. I am in no way connected to this person and can NOT vouche for his work. - Nate
