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.

that only means that you may have inserted a disk which your cdrom does not support. or you may have something wrong with your cdromn. try cleaning it. or try also using another disk. this usually remedies this.

Error message

hi here

you may have an unreadable disk or you just have to clean the lens of your player. always remember that the lens should always be clean to optimize its reading capablilities. just to be sure too, make sure that the disk you insert have no severe scratchings.

hope this helps.
