Question about Pioneer DEH-1700 CD Player
I got a Pioneer DEH 1700 at a garage sale. Made in 2005.
I got it working after finding a wiring description on the web.
It was working fine..disc playing, clock working, radio working, all buttons doing their respective tasks.
I have some special cassette tapes that I need a tape player to hear so I wanted to install both a cd player and a tape player in the same vehicle.
I got a am,fm casette from a ford winstar. I had it working in a ford pickup.
Everything on it worked fine.
I unplugged the cd player and tape deck and moved on to figuring out how to cut out the removable plastic dash plate that I wanted to mount the 2 units in, one above the other. This meant I was picking up and putting down the cd unit many times, using it as a cutting pattern by tracing around it, test fitting it, standing it on it's side or end, removing and reinstalling the detachable faceplate, rubbing it against the tape player, test fitting it in the dash cavity, etc, I never dropped or banged it hard or exposed it to powered up wires.
Now all i get from it is a continuous clicking and the disk or radio won't play. No lights at all on the faceplate screen. I removed the top plate covering the cd player, undid the 4 screws holding the cd player into the whole unit and pulled it up and flipped it over being carefull not to break the wiring harness to the cd mechanizm.
Powered up, what is hapening is the small silver motor, via gears, is turning a 3" or so rod with a helical groove along it, kind of like a screw. It keeps going and won't stop. the grooved rod advances the reader head across the disk to, I guess, move the reader to the next track, (I don't know much about the internals of cd's)
anyway it has reached the end of its movement and the continuous clicking is produced by the spring loaded "nut" being pushed out of , then falling into, the helical groove/screw only to repeat this cycle endlessly.
Can anyone help me get this up and running again? or is it toast?
the red fuse in the back of the unit just above the wiring receptacle is ok.
with power to the unit, if I press the faceplate detach button and the right side of the faceplate pops out the motor/clicking stops.
I opened up the faceplate but everything inside looks ok to me.
to add insult I can't get the tape deck to work either....completely dead???
I'm guessing that you wired the 2 units together including the speakers? the 2 units may be of different potentials and can't be wired together like that...they would need diodes or a relay to isolate one from another.. first you need to see if you toasted each of these by separating the wiring and trying them separately...just a thought
