Thanks for the responce, but check this out.... I went to have someone do the bypass for me, and about 15 minutes after taking my truck to the back, he comes out and tells me that 1 of the 2 pins are missing, and b/c of this, he wont be able to do it. He said he wasnt sure if someone else tried to do it and messed up or what, but simply-he couldnt do it. I DID in fact buy this unit off of another person, refurbished. Have you ever heard of this, if so, would you happen to know of a solution. THanks
Thats wierd that one of the pins are missing. Did you actually look yourself? I know there are also some halfazz ways to rewire the harness to get the dvd to work. Something about grounding the brake wire then rewiring the dvd output wire to the rear cam wire or something like that. I dont know. If the unit was refurbished by pioneer, they may have took out one of the jumpers. I believe those were originally available for foreign units so they could be easily converted. Good luck.

The original Avic N1 only needed to have the parking brake wire grounded for video in motion. Then, the latter series came out and on the underside of the in-dash unit, they have a foil sticker that needed to be removed and a jumper carefully soldered on the circuit board. Avic N2's had a switch installed under this sticker to avoid people from making soldering mistakes. I think the N2 brain may be looking for an N2 unit and giving you trouble. more info on this subject is available @ www.avic411.com.
You can still perform the bypass internally. The N2 is done by connect the two points under the VOID sticker and the N1 will have to be taken apart completely. Unless you are a pro, I would recommend that you have it done professionally. Sound like someone tried and put too much solder and then cleaned up but also took out the pin. If you need I can perfome the bypass or if you have enough guts I can walk you through it. The instruction is sellling on Ebay for about $10. Unless you are really technically incline it very easy to fry your unit beyond repairable. Goodluck.
It is a common issue for the Avic N series. If it is out of warranty then the guy on Ebay will fix it for you for around $100. Try SAME DAY AUDIO SERVICE, his name is Rick and he is very reliable. Goodluck.
underneath the mounting bracket of the radio not the brain theres a silver sticker like mentioned above there are two silver solder points right beneath the sticker it must be jumped with a wire or you can use the solder to connect the two contact points after this you must still ground the green parking brake wire to the car.
2nd-(also my favorite choice and the one I'm using on my N5 & on my 7800dvd those who know pioneer know what i'm talking about)
buy a ptr7 pheriphial device and wire as follows (they come factory ready to bypass alpine and pioneer units)
wire as follows-white wire to green parking break of the deck your bypassing
red wire to vehicles 12v source
green wire from device to remote
black wire to vehicle ground wire
final important step I know because this happended to me
make sure you take a little screwdriver agfter wiring or something and switch the
PTR 7 to the off position-or else this will make the PTR7 not function correctly
