Question about Car Audio Receivers

Tuning steps/increments Hi Paul, You may want to have a second look at this re Pioneer DEH-P7900 of fisherman117. I would be sending you details of mods but the user must agree to the arrangements with you since it has to be on-site so that you can get your hands on the unit.

Hi Benimur thanks,

What kind of mod would you be talking about and also the problem would be what part of uk hes going to that is if it is the uk hes planing on going.

Adjusting the firmware would change the frequency but is their that firmware out their for his make/model

Also what ive tried on my own stereos car and house is that fishermans frequence is like you say its 95.1 and 95.3 so its going up in .2 in odd incremants so what i tried on my stereos is the nearest frequency possible for uk stations ok.
So in uk one of our main stations is
radio 1 at 97.9 this station would be spot on
and brmb at 96.4
so if its going up in .2 incremants then 96.4 closest one on his would be 96.3 or 96.5 witch i tried and you can get this station and wont notice any bad signal even at high volume.
So for the range to be out by only .1 then i cant see their being a problem.

Even on DAB radios using manual tune instead of auto still picks up the stations with no problems.

So if your sure his stereo goes up in 95.1 and 95.3 then he should have no problems as the output from the stations is high.

Also radio 1 our main station in uk is 97.9 so his should pick up this station with no problems at all.
But please tell me if im wrong about his frequency as ive only worked with uk based systems witch are the same as europe .
Do you understand what im trying to get across.
If you think its going to cause loads of problems by being out by .1 then let me know.
If you think it wouldnt be a major problem then also let me know.

Ill wait till i here from you before i get back to fisherman as i dont want to give him information that would be no use to him ok.

Please let me know either way ok thanks and speak soon

On most of the Pioneers you can program the channels by tuning to the station you want, then pressing and holding the number key you want it stored to.

Hope this helps

Pioneer Super Tuner III DEH-45DH

I just bought a Ranger with the same problem... been surfing the internet and these are some of the answers.. I haven't tried any of them but I hope this helps:

Try pressing and holding the CLOCK button
while pressing the first
FM Preset button to change the hours
and the second FM Preset for the minutes!

We hope this helps!

turn the system off. Now hold down the function or audio button. It should light up the display with the time blinking. use the tuning and/or volume button to adjust hr/min, The rest is straightforward....

I just had to set mine and yes you turn the power off. Then you hold in the "F" button (just below "eject")" for 2-3 seconds. The time will display and the hour will blink. Use the up down arrows to change the hour then use the right arrow to switch to the minutes and again use the up or down arrows to change the minutes

Turn system on with only clock showing Press and hold "A" audio button till hour starts blinking the rest is easy too work out

Pioneer DEH-P690UB FM tuning problem

Pioneer have factory set your DEH-P690UB to 0.2Mhz steps to match the American FM frequency allocations. The fix is not casual as it requires complete disassembly of the head unit and repositioning of two surface mount resistors. This will void any warrantee and unless you're good at microscopic soldering could also ruin the set. I did however void my 2 year warrantee yesterday partly out of frustration and because I have the right SMT tools at work. Now my tuner CPU thinks it's in the Austrailian/Asian model DEH-P7950UB and is also compatible with UK stations. A previously hidden menu is also available where I can set either 0.1 or 0.05Mhz stepping for FM and 9 or 10KHz for AM BSM scanning. The rotary control now steps in 0.05's instead of odd 0.2's on FM Hope this helps.
