Question about Pioneer DEH-1900MP CD Player

2 Answers

Tuner increments hi all, the tuner on my unit can't seem to pick up 'even' numbers. I know this osunds silly, but it only goes, for example, 95.1, 95.3 etc etc, even when automatically seeking. It can't pick up even numbers at all. Hope I've made sense regards Simon

Same problem. Battery went dead and I received the error AO message when I tried to play a CD. The radio & keypad weren't right either. A Circuit City installer pulled my deck with the extraction keys and grounded out the deck by applying one of the wires to the small indentation on top of the deck. That reset the theft prevention on the CD player and I was happy until my battery went dead again. :(

Those are odd numbers you decribed there
i understand what your saying to get the even numbers you have to use the remote and single click to what you want and if you want to stop a seek for frequencie hit the button back
you know foward select for scan and then back button for stop and then single press in what you need it takes a little fenness to control for even even numbers you just have to stop scan and seek single taps at a time

Car radio not picking up stations


Check the radio earth, the aerial cable and the point at which the cable reaches the aerial.

If there is no fault, take the radio back to where you bought it.

How to change tuner to pick up all frequence's eg: goes from 95.5 to 95.7 how do i get it to change to 95.6 thanks jason


It will only tune into odd numbered stations because US radio station only broadcast in odd number stations (ex 95.5,95.7,96.3). You can change the area. Area 1 is North America, Area 2 is other areas. Press "Menu"->"Setup"->"Tuner"->"Tuner Area", then select 1 or 2. After setting, press and hold "Menu" for at least 2 seconds. This may give you the frequency you are looking for.

RAdio skips two numbers when tuning


You have a US tuner not a European one. Only European tuners can change the even numbers. USA uses the odds. As far as I know, the US models aren't capable of tuning to the evens.

Tuning steps/increments


Hi Benimur thanks,

What kind of mod would you be talking about and also the problem would be what part of uk hes going to that is if it is the uk hes planing on going.

Adjusting the firmware would change the frequency but is their that firmware out their for his make/model

Also what ive tried on my own stereos car and house is that fishermans frequence is like you say its 95.1 and 95.3 so its going up in .2 in odd incremants so what i tried on my stereos is the nearest frequency possible for uk stations ok.
So in uk one of our main stations is
radio 1 at 97.9 this station would be spot on
and brmb at 96.4
so if its going up in .2 incremants then 96.4 closest one on his would be 96.3 or 96.5 witch i tried and you can get this station and wont notice any bad signal even at high volume.
So for the range to be out by only .1 then i cant see their being a problem.

Even on DAB radios using manual tune instead of auto still picks up the stations with no problems.

So if your sure his stereo goes up in 95.1 and 95.3 then he should have no problems as the output from the stations is high.

Also radio 1 our main station in uk is 97.9 so his should pick up this station with no problems at all.
But please tell me if im wrong about his frequency as ive only worked with uk based systems witch are the same as europe .
Do you understand what im trying to get across.
If you think its going to cause loads of problems by being out by .1 then let me know.
If you think it wouldnt be a major problem then also let me know.

Ill wait till i here from you before i get back to fisherman as i dont want to give him information that would be no use to him ok.

Please let me know either way ok thanks and speak soon

Very weird Radio Tuning Problem


This is a USA model and by default in the USA all FM stations end in an Odd number. This is completely normal. you can try holding preset 1 and 5 down while pressing the reset button on the unit and it may allow you to switch to a Europe style of tuning.

It only seems to tune in odd radio stations


Unless you're in Europe, it's not supposed to. No stations (in America) exist on even numbers.

Pioneer DEH-P690UB FM tuning problem


Pioneer have factory set your DEH-P690UB to 0.2Mhz steps to match the American FM frequency allocations. The fix is not casual as it requires complete disassembly of the head unit and repositioning of two surface mount resistors. This will void any warrantee and unless you're good at microscopic soldering could also ruin the set. I did however void my 2 year warrantee yesterday partly out of frustration and because I have the right SMT tools at work. Now my tuner CPU thinks it's in the Austrailian/Asian model DEH-P7950UB and is also compatible with UK stations. A previously hidden menu is also available where I can set either 0.1 or 0.05Mhz stepping for FM and 9 or 10KHz for AM BSM scanning. The rotary control now steps in 0.05's instead of odd 0.2's on FM Hope this helps.
