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

1 Answer

Screen will not open

My unit just started this today, when you push the open button, it will not open. If I push the angle button it will not move either. It does make a sound that the button is working but it does not do anything, you know like it will not let you do this function.

It seems the problem is the ribbon cable,the one that connects the screen to the main board.
There is a RECALL for this model from Pioneer.
my suggestion is to contact Pioneer and send it to them for repair at no charge.

My Power Acoustik PTID-7350NRBT angle feature isn't working

If you're still looking for help I have the same one and had the same issue. You have to push the eject button once and right after push and hold it and it will let you change the angle. You have to be really quick between the push and push and hold. If it opens, just close and try again.

One of the pistons that move the screen in place must be stuck. The unit must be taken apart to fix this.

Kenwood DDX7017 Screen has no color and it won't eject

Had the same thing happen to me. All you have to do is use a pen or a paper clip and push the reset button located on the front of the unit. It cleared right up.

Movie starts over

We recently purchased a pair of these from eBay and started having the reset on bump issue almost immediately. I guessed that the pads on the door had become permanently compressed over time and that was allowing the door to move too much during a bump.
As the door moves, the switch moves resets the unit. I bought some 1/8 foam weather strip with adhesive backing from ACE and put one 2” strip on either side of the disc opening just below the latches. This helped quite a bit but we still experienced resetting on big road bumps. I put a small piece of the weather strip on the end of the little plastic boss on the door that pushes the door switch in. We just got home from a 1.5 hour trip and the DVD player did not reset. I am not ready to claim success yet, but I think I am close to solving this problem.

Good Luck to all who are experiencing this issue.

DUAL XDVD8181 car unit - motorized TFT screen won't come out!

Open it again and check the ribbon cable for cracks, the one that get drag in and out every time it open and close. Because it is a defect for Pioneer too, and Pioneer would replace it free. Goodluck.

Screen Tilt

Mine did the same thing. If it is not aligned properly this will happen. Take the kit off from around the unit. Then tell it to go to what ever screen setting you want. If it works with the kit removed this is your problem.
