Question about Pioneer AVIC-N2 Car DVD Player

Problems with screen and head unit.

I first had problems with the head unit with most of the functions going bad. Then I read the manual and it said I could reset it by inserting a pen in a small hole on the right side of the head unit. Now the screen has gone blank. The manual says if the ligth goes out then my units may need a new light. Am I just better off getting a new unit or paying to get a new light and head unit replace? Help. Thanks.

It seem your unit has problem with the ribbon cable,the ones connects the screen to the main board.
Pioneer has a RECALL for this units,my suggestion is to contact pioneer and send it to them at no charge for the repair.

My w205 screen was cracked and there are no controlling options. is there a way to fix the screen? Is the screen the problem? And does it have a remote control?


The only way to fix both your problems is to mail it into Alpine, the screen is laced in with ribbins and soldered by twelve tips on the circuit board. If you have years of electronic back ground you maybe able to fix the screen, the IR controller the remote maybe bad or the IR sensor is back in the head unit is a 3 pin item that maybe needs to be resoldered or a new one soldered in place of the defective one. I have the same unit and I havent had any problems?? How did you break the screen?

Head unit not fully functional


well there may be a loose connection on the board or a short in the circuitry. The first thing to do is try to reset it by disconnecting it from all power sources which could mean disconnecting your battery if needed

Touchscreen won't respond when touched. All other functions of unit work. Do the screens just go bad and where/who repairs this?


you may need to reset the unit. after that do a screen recalibration. if that doesn't work the ribbon cable could be broke

Dvd player won't read disc


I believe Vizualogic has serious quality problems. I had RT20 installed and it was defective to start with. The headphones did not work on one unit and the other unit made a loud sound when it was turned on. I had the units replaced. The new units had a new problem - Disc Error. The players were not able to read the discs. The installer tried another unit and it also had the same disc error problem. Interestingly, the word disc was spelled as DSIC - can you believe the quality control on Vizualogic prodict?

The installer then found that a wire had come loose in one of the units. He applied some tape to hold the wire in place. The unit seemed to transmit sound again. Well, a broken connection, disc error in multiple units and incorrect spelling was enough to turn me off. I am now trying to get some other brand installed.

Video image wont show. safety warning.


grounding the brake wire will allow you to view video while driving but may require an sequence (on off on or whatever it calls for) to turn on video playback so i suggest grounding the wire and putting a small toggle switch on the wire. i have done this in many cars during my strent as a professional car audio installer

check to see if the brake wire on the head unit is pos or neg once you find that out go to auto zone and buy a toggle switch and run the pos or neg to one end and the brake wire from the head unit to the other and the sequence is 2 seconds on to off reffer to your manual to be for sure

Screen Not Working


I sent my head unit to pioneer and they fixed the problem for free. It is very easy to remove the head unit from your vehicle, you can leave all of the cabling and components in there. It just takes a week or so.
