Question about Car Audio & Video

1 Answer

I have a Pioneer AVH-4100DVD in my '07 Camry and the radio has a really bad signal. Every station is pretty much all static. I brought it in to the store and they didn't know what was wrong. Any thoughts?

If all other in dash receivers you have had in that car have worked well, it is likely that they did not hook up the antenna lead when it was installed. I suspect they do not want to waste the time checking on it. The antenna lead looks similar to a coaxial cable on your TV so check the back of the radio to make sure it is plugged in or even better make the installer do it. :).

ON A PIONEER CAR UNIT MODEL AVHP49000DVD , I BOUGHT IT USED , THEN HAD TO BUY A POWER PLUG FROM PIONEER WITH A WIRING DIAGRAM , PUT IT IN MY 2006 GMC TRUCK WITH A FACTORY WIRING ADAPTER IT WILL NOT COME...


You will need to connect the pioneer unit to a switched ignition wire from the ignition switch. The 2006 GM factory radio only has a constant B+ (orange wire) and ground (black wire). The factory radio turns on when the Body Control Module (BCM) sends the radio a turn-on signal (on a data communication line) when the key is turned on. Your pioneer unit won't talk to the truck's BCM, and will need you to wire a switched B+ feed to it that turns on in the ignition accessory and run positions.

I can receive FM stations properly. I cannot receive AM stations at all. Only a static sound. I disconnected the AM antenna leads and used an Ohm Meter. The meter read full continuity when I touched...


you may be in an area where am stations don't come in,, am uses straight lines of frequency where FM uses a modulated signal, which travels much farther, I bought a antenna signal booster from radio shack for a few dollars , and was able to get the stations, some pretty static filled though, but the more local ones came in ok, another thing to check is that the unit is plugged into a grounded receptacle ,

I just bought a car with a Pioneer avh-p4000dvd. If I choose an AM station they are all static. It's kind of like there's no AM antenna. Any ideas?


The first things to check are th antenna connection at the radio and the cable at the antenna. If you have a poor connection, you may still get adequate FM through capacitive coupling, but the lower frequency AM signal would be severely degraded. If the connectors are heavily tarnished, polish them. If you have a telescoping antenna, make sure the sections fit snugly, but are not stuck due to dirt or corrosion (bad connection between sections).

If the antenna is good but you still have poor signal, the AM tuner is probably out of alignment. The alignment procedure is simple enough that it is a lab exercise for second-year electronics students, but it requires an oscilloscope and reference signal generator to get it right.

ERROR CODE 02-60 WHEN TRYING TO PLAY IPOD.


I had the same exact problem with the 4100DVD I got on 5/01/09. I reset my Ipod via the Itunes software. This will wipe your Ipod clean and reinstall everything. I was a bit leary about this but gave it a shot and viola! It is working just as it was when I first purchased 5 days ago.

Make sure you back up your Ipod first. After the reset, it will ask if this is a new install or restore. Select restore and everything is back again, including downloaded games and app. (I have an Ipod Touch)

How to hookup an IPOD to a pioneer avh-p6500 car stereo


If your car stero has a stereo audio input connector then you can plug a cable in the headphone on the IPod and the other end of the cable into the stereo audio input on the car stereo.
If you don't have an stereo input on the car stereo then you can buy a FM transmitter that is powered by the car's cigarette socket, connect the IPod to the transmitter, switch on the car radio and tune it to the FM station that matches the FM transmitter.
You can now listen to your IPod from the car radio.

You have it wired wrong. The red wire goes to the key switch and the yellow wire goes to the battery or a constant hot wire.

Good Luck and please rate
