Re: why can't i watch movies on my pioneer avic-n3?
On the bottom side of the deck there is a small silver sticker. Remove the sticker and you would see a tiny switch. Just flip the switch to the other position and remember to ground the light green wire. Goodluck.

ready. ground the e brake. green wire. also because you have a pioneer(i do to) you will need to have a switch where the driver can reach cause every time you turn off your car (acc) then start again this switch needs to be ungrounded then re grounded let e know how it goes. Kieran
the pioneer avic n3 has a seperate brain system and there is a cable that hooks the two together its called like the 13 pin wire or something and once you hook the brain and the head unit together it will have the display and everything else
yellow wire on back of pioneer unit is probably on wrong wire try switching it with the red wire ........yellow is constant power (saves memory time and last part of song or movie so when you get in the car again it will start from where it left off) if this doesn't work ground it to the car itself (black wire to frame not wire in-dash) try the wire switch first ........hope i was able to help
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
I am pretty sure that pioneer does this so you cant bypass it. The n1, you just have to ground the parking brake wire,the n2 you have to solder the 2 points together under the piece of tape, the n3 you have to move over the switch on the side of the unit. Which all of these void your warranty anyway but I think that is why people eventually downgrade the the old dvds.
