Question about Pioneer SE-DIR2000C Headphones
I recently purchased a pair of your superb SE-DIR2000C surround sound headphones but experienced the following problem with the 12V DC 1000 mA transformer. When plugged in and in ‘Stand-By’ mode, there were no problems but when the unit was switched on from the ‘Stand-By’ mode and after about 10 mins, the transformer would start to get very warm – I might add that the headphones were not even on the charging unit at this time. After (2) weeks of use, the transformer finally died/failed and I have been unable to use it again. Fortunately, my friend owns the same headphones and after borrowing his transformer, I was able to power my charging unit on but only to prove that it fortunately still worked. I am now sure that the problem lies with the transformer itself and specifically, with the 1000 mA rating of the transformer unit. Could you possibly help me at all and will I be able to solve this problem by say, obtaining a new 12V DC transformer but with say, a 1500mA or 2000mA rating.
I don’t know whether or not I missed anything from the instruction manual but unfortunately, it is in Japanese text but I don’t think there is any other way to operate this headphone system other than to leave it permanently in charging mode when the headphones are returned to the charger in ‘Stand-By’ mode. I have experienced this symptom once before when a transformer was rated at a lower wattage than the equipment it was powering.
The spec of the (2) rechargeable AA batteries is as follows:
1.2v Typ.2100mAh Min.2000 mAh WEX1019-A
The (2) rechargeable batteries are: Nickel Metal Hydride AA batteries.
….. What would happen if I obtained (2) more Nickel Metal Hydride AA batteries but with a rating of say: 2500mAh?
my best suggestion for you would be to look up the user manual on pioneer's website, look for the model number on the front of the deck its usually deh-p4900ib or something like that, hopefully thats written in english for you or if its not so to pioneers website and look up the single din dvd/gps sytems and go through the pages till you find one that looks like yours, good luck.
