Question about Pioneer Car Audio & Video
I have a USA version of the Pioneer DEH-P700BT and I cannot tune in to all the European channels. For example I can tune in to but not to 101.9 and 102.1 but I can not get 102.0, or 101.0
This effectively means I have lost half my channels.
Any tips would be more than welcome
This is a firmware restriction. US version would tune from 87.5 to 107.9MHz at 0.20MHz interval (steps) while European versions would tune from 87.5 to 108MHz at 0.05MHz interval (steps).
In some versions, there is a resistor/diode matrix on the logic circuitry that selects the region of usage. But of course this would require opening the unit up and somebody who is very very familiar with digital and analog circuitry and components as well as surface mounted component soldering.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.
