Question about Pioneer DVH-P5000MP - Car Audio DVD/CD/MP3 Player / Dual Zone Capabilities

1 Answer

Where is the "amp" the blue/white wire runs to? I have a pioneer dvh-5000 dvd head unit. I also have a pioneer ipod bus and 2 pioneer rear monitors and one kenwood front monitor. All video components play normally. Today I tried to run my rear speaker off of one of two amps which I have in my car, but like a dummy, I think I pushe subwoofer sound through a rear speaker so I think I caused a feedback or something because none of my car speakers play any sound anymore. My subwoofer still works and my amps and capacitors still function normally from what I can see. The only issue is that speakers are not getting any sound. I have tried to disconnect the speaker I was trying to run off the amp but still nothing. I checked all the standard car fuses and none were blown. I checked as many wiring fuses as I could see, but I have so many wires from all the a/v equipment it's hart to tell. Is there a fuse I am missing or is my head unit sound output just fried?

    So it's possible that I blew up all of my speakers at the same time? Without any noise, distortion or popping sound occuring? Or is it mor likely I fried a speaker wire somewhere. My amp is still pushing my sub as normal. If everything is still wired as it was when it was working properly, where would you suggest the best place to start is? Speaker wiring near my head unit or closer to the speaker(s)? I have so much wiring behind my head unit now it is hard to tell what's going where....

Blue wire is normally REMOTE amp wire, Which goes to back of ur stereo to enable the amp to switch on when music is playing.
Check all speakers for blown/touching wires and make sure its correctly wired
Amp Wiring
RED = Battery Black = To body of car near to amp as possible so shorter distance BLUE = Remote amp wire to back of stereo Aux IN/OUT = To back of stereo.
Then speaker wires + and - to the bass boxes
DON'T Wire to your speakers + wire speakers to car stereo will make em blow up.

    Try use cable ties to clean up behind your unit to keep it clean as if all messy when moving it in and out dash wires just pull and make problems.

    Also you would need to check near speakers plus take them out and test on a hi-fi system in your house on low volume so you don't blow them and see if there working,
    If working then try wire em to unit without the speaker wiring built into car, If still working then its wiring has blown or touched somewhere if not working then could have blew your unit.

    If your sub is still working it could just be blown wire somewhere or blown speakers, Its easier and cheaper to check all speakers before determining that there blown.

    Thanks, will do... as a matter of fact I already tried the rear speakers in my home receiver and they worked so I'm thinking its the speaker wiring built into the car

HOW CAN I TURN ON THE AUX IMPUT OF A Pioneer DVH-P7000 Stereo Receiver & DVD Player In Dash

Look carefully in the front panel for the source button- input. after connecting the RCA jacks input at the rear with a source, select this , do not put in the cd when you are trying out as it might go to the default setting of detecting the cd.
Hope you get this right.Good day

Connection to IPOD

There are many ways to do so. Each of which is progressively more expensive.
All of these plug into the Ip bus plug in the rear of the unit.
Most of these can be found on Ebay or Amazon
1: An IP bus to RCA plug then you need a RCA to 3.5mm plug wire. (note this is a lower quality) $10-$30

2: An ip bus to Ipod connect plug. (Better sound quality, charges Ipod, does not allow Ipod control from the Head unit, only from the Ipod) around $15-$30

3: An ip bus to Ipod Connectivity unit (same quality as #2 but allows for Ipod control from Head unit)

Most of these can be found on Ebay or Amazon

Ipod will not play video to my head unit AVH P5900DVD

ok for the first post with the ipod not showing video .. make sure that you have the correct cable running from behind the deck to the ipod .. (iPod Direct Control (CD-I200 Required) once you have that connected you need to go to the video settings of your ipod and turn on the video out .. by default its offf... also remember with movies on your ipod .. that has to be manually selected from the ipod itself .. you cant control the videos from the pioneer unit.. only the audio/music on your ipod can be selected from the pioneer unit..
