Question about Pioneer AVIC-D1 In-Dash Mobile Navigation CD Car Video Player

3 Answers

Thanks but I still need help!

Hey Early1,

I tried cleaning it and I checked the disk and there's no visible scratches. I called Pioneer and it seems like I need to send it in and pay the $200 flat fee to fix it. I tried resetting the AVIC D1 system too but I still get "Insert Appropriate Disk" error message.. in fact, it doesn't even say "Reading Disk" anymore... do you think Pioneer is my only resort?

I have the same problem.  I sent mine back to Pioneer to get fixed and paid $200.  Came back and still had the same problem!  All they did was replace the laser reader for the disk, but that is not the solution.  The techs at Pioneer are really lame.

My son has a psp. He plays the game Ben10 Alien Force which is not working now... His other umds are working but this umd has stopped working all of sudden. Can u help to solve the problem.. Thanks

Try cleaning the umd.

Breathe lightly on your disk, take a non-abrasive wiping cloth, clean the UMD disk just like cleaning a DVD/CD. You may also try the compressed air cans, which is available in computer/electronic store. If there are any particles or dust on the disk, try blowing these particles off. Consider using a compressed air can to blow particles from the inside of the disk; you can find these cans in any computer or electronics store. There is also UMD disk-cleaning solution available, which would clean your disk as clean as it can be.

Check also for scratches, if it has deep scratches, then that might be the cause.

The system says it is unable to read the disk

Hey there, welcome to

My name is Aaron, I'm here to assist you with the technical problem you are experiencing. Remember to take a couple of seconds to rate this response if you find it informative and helpful. If this response doesn't help you, just hit that reply button and I'll see what more information I can provide.
This problem is likely caused by one of two things. First, check the back of the disk and make sure there are no visible surface scratches. If there is dirt stuck on the back of the disk, then it needs to be cleaned. If it's cracked, then throw it away. Second, something on your Wii might be corrupt. Check the saved states in your Wii Settings. There could be some state of Just Dance 2 that isn't letting your game load.
If that doesn't work, then you can always try a Factory Reset. This will erase all saved profiles and data on your Wii, so only do it as a last resort. There should be a link in the Wii Settings for Reformatting your Wii System.

I am trying to load into a game on call of duty: modern warfare 2 and it looks like it starts to load for a second and then in stops and sits there... i have tried many different ways to make the internet...

This might help and it might not. try cleaning the disk really good, assuming of course you need the ps3 disk in to play the game. Once you have done that check the disk by holding it up to a light and see if there are any scratches in the disk. One tiny scratch is all it takes to kill a disk. If there are no scratches in thew disk then check to make sure that the disk is actually clear on the plastic, no smudges any place. If all of this is OK, then sorry I'm out of ideas since generally a load problem happens long before the game or a network connection shows up.

My PS3 will start to load Call Of Duty 5 then just goes blank..But will play other discs.Any Ideas?

When I had a similar issue with my PS2 (GT4 would not load) it was because the disk-reading laser was misaligned. That happened after using the system for many years, so if your system is new, maybe you can skip to the 2nd part of my answer. A slight misalignment could mean that the disk is still read, but the process takes longer. If COD5 requires frequent access to the disk when booting up - as GT4-, that might explain why other games load properly and COD5 doesn't.

Other potential problems: scratched disk (visible scratches), dirty disk (you can clean with a cloth, sweeping radially from the center to the border of the disk), problem with the COD5 data installed in your PS3 hard disk (try reinstalling the game).

My pioneer car audio player supports mp3, wav, but recently started showing error 11

would need the model number of pioneer. But generally this error on most pioneer refers to a dirty disk, scratched disk or dirt on the lens inside the player. try using lens cleaner and clean all your disks. Car scratch remover such as t-cut is good for removing scratches off disks.

Turns off disk

First of all, get some toothpaste and a soft rag, try cleaning the disk thouroughly, sometimes the scratches on the disk can be so small that they aren't too visible, with this cleaning, you can fill these tiny scratches and allow the disk to work perfectly. If this does not fix your problem, take a Q-tip and run it along the inside of the disk tray while open, if you brush the bottom very gently you can successfully clean the eye that reads your disks of any dust and or obstructions.

Hope this helps :)
