Question about Pioneer AVIC-Z2 Car DVD Player

Avic Z3 open monitor will not close

When trying to insert a disc and I push the monitor open button it cycles open then closes half way back.  It will not respond to further button pushes and will not allow a disc to be inserted.  Only turning off the ignition switch will make it close again.  I have reset the unit and that does not help.

The problem of your player is the mechanism,theres a parts overlap thats why the roller cannot run smootly,most common causes is that the roller had accumulated dirt that why the grease thier is hardened you better clean that roller with a lighter fluid and changed the old grease ,a type -A grease,the roller is the part that moving back and port bringing the lense set.If this roller clean the operation is back to normal again.

There is most likely a sensor that tells the motor to stop at the open position. If that sensor is failing then the motor will keep turning. When the unit trips another sensor out of sequence it stops. Turning of the power and turning it back on resets the unit to the home position.

I would try to blow any dust and debris out of the machine with some compressed air. If that doesn't work and if your are within warranty then call Pioneer for support and service. If you don't have warranty, you could always try to open the unit and check the movement and sensors for anything that may be broken or out of place.

You may be able to find a broken Z3 on eBay that you may be able to salvage parts from.

There are a series of microswitches and sensors to determine the location of the tray as well as the loading condition. Any of these switches or sensors could be bad or the loading mechanism could be out of alignment. Either condition will not allow the DVD to complete the loading cycle. Turning of fhte ignition switch will cause the unit to shutdown which will retract the tray. I would first suspect that the loading mechanism is out of alignment. The unit will need to be removed from the vehicle and the loading mechanism rebuilt to realign the gearing and cams for proper function. This should not require any parts other than perhaps a belt. Figure on $2-$5 for the belt and the local labor rate for the total repair cost.

    Thank you for the update. Since this is a new unit, you are correct in assuming that a rebuild should not be necesary. Please return this unit for a replacement under warranty. There is a problem with it that should be covered.

Unplug pc, open cabinet and look for dust and debris , clean with compressed air.
If it's still dirty use 50/50 distilled water and alcohol with a swab. Allow 30 minutes before plugging back in.

Hi, I wonder if anybody can help me with a problem with my DV-717 DVD Player?


Hard question: Have you considered opening it to see what mechanism is doing and also to make sure something that does not belong inside got there in the mechanism?

I have seen where somehow a second disc got inserted and if the mechanism jams for any reason odd issues and or shutdown may happen.

It will not let me insert a disc and when I press the eject button, it sounds like it is going to eject a disc and then it makes a weird noise for 5 seconds. Then, it will say CLOSE for a bit. I got one...


It sounds like you have 2 disks stuck in there. TV repair shop, or try shaking the dvd player lightly while dvd is trying to open. You may need to help open the door, but too much effort could cause harm.

MY id58 GATEWAY DVD PLAYER, i cant insert a disc because blocked by the mechanism eventhough there is no disc inside.


There is a small hole on the front of the drive. Use a paperclip or a safety pin in the hole to push open the disc try enough to pull it open the rest of the way with your hand. Insert the disc, press the button on the drive to close the bay. If the tray doesn't close gently push the tray back in. If no lights blink on the front of the drive, the drive may be unplugged or has gone bad.

Does not play when disc entered nor when play is selected. (XD-E500KB)


Hello

Push in the plug connected to the "Video Out" jack on the rear of the Dvd to ensure it is connected firmly. Check the connection at the back of the TV as well.

Press the "Source" or "Input" button on the TV remote to verify the television's input is set to the DVD connection.

Press the "open/close" button on the front of the DVD to open the disc tray. Insert and test different DVDs to determine if the problem is with a specific disc, or if the player will not operate.

Eject the DVD tray and insert the DVD laser lens cleaner. Close the tray and wait a few seconds for the cleaning disc to load. Press "Play" on the front control panel to spin the disc through the cleaning cycle.

Remove the cleaning disc, insert a DVD and test playback operation. If the machine still will not play discs, the main receiver unit may require internal repairs best left to an experienced technician.

CD/DVD drive stuck CLOSED and NO pin hole


Use my computer and select the drive (eg drive E:). From pull down menu "File" select "eject". While the disk door attempts to open (hear slight movement of tray) massage the door with your fingers. This is done by smoothing out the across front door panel with your finger tips and pushing in and releasing pressure from door. Door should slide open partially and close again. Repeat. The eject button nearside the disc tray doesn't seem to work as well as selecting "File" and "Eject" from the menu. Something to do with the door cycle is less with the direct eject button.

First, make sure the DVD Recorder is completely disconnected from the Main Supply.

Then, if you look on the base of the unit, (just underneath the front of the Disc Insert/Eject Tray), there is a small slot, (approx 25 x 8mm), in which you can see a small, white, plastic lever probably situated near the right-hand side of the slot.

Then move this lever gently to the left, and then turn it on and the tray opens by pushing the button.
