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

DEH-P7900 BT US model. Isthere any way I could change the tuner frequency to european one. Thanks.


The DEH-P7900BT is almost identical to the DEH-P85BT sold in Europe.

This is a US model and will tune most AM/FM stations in the UK/Europe. The FM broadcast band is 87.8 to 108.0 MHz. so it will not pick up any FM stations outside this range. Also, the tuning is in odd increments (such as 96.1, 96.3, 96.5, etc.) so some stations with even frequencies will be slightly distorted, depending on the power of the signal the station generates.


I found this bit of info for you but ill keep looking and let you know what i find out.
Also have you tried it in europe to see if it does work or not let me know ok

FM frequecy increases/decreases too mugh pr. step


Hi, Your post/description "the frequency increases in steps of .2 Mhz or 200Khz" refers to the increment of frequency spacing between tuning steps and is largely dependent on the radio standards of the country/region the radio is intended to be used. Assuming no hardware fault to the radio, tuning steps may be adjusted by: 1. With the radio switched off, press the Step/Band button for about 2 seconds. This will display the current FM tuning step (200Khz as in your case); 2. With the radio switched off, press the Step/Band button for about 10 seconds. This will display FM and a blinking 50Khz with a single beep sound. By rotating the Tuning Control you can increase or decrease this value. 3. pressing the Step/Band button again will move you to the tuning increments of the AM band again adjustable via the Tuning Control. 4. pressing the Step/Band button again will save the setting and complete the process. Hope this be of some help. Good luck and kind regards.

Magnum 257 6 digit display


To tune frequencies in either 10 kHz or 100 kHz increments,
press the STEP button until the desired digit is
flashing. Rotate the FREQUENCY control in either direction.
The entire frequency range of the Magnum 257
can be stepped through in 10 or 100 kHz increments.
To tune in 1 kHz increments, press the STEP button
until the 1 kHz digit flashes on and off. Rotate the FREQUENCY
control. NOTE: When stepping in 1 kHz increments,
you are limited to tuning within a 10 kHz
frequency range.

Frequency increases/decreases in steps of 0.2 kHz


Hi again, Seems you posted twice. A copy of my reply to your other post.... Assuming no hardware fault to the radio, tuning steps may be adjusted by: 1. With the radio switched off, press the Step/Band button for about 2 seconds. This will display the current FM tuning step (200Khz as in your case); 2. With the radio switched off, press the Step/Band button for about 10 seconds. This will display FM and a blinking 50Khz with a single beep sound. By rotating the Tuning Control you can increase or decrease this value. 3. pressing the Step/Band button again will move you to the tuning increments of the AM band again adjustable via the Tuning Control. 4. pressing the Step/Band button again will save the setting and complete the process.

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.
