Question about Eclipse AVN5500 Car DVD Player

1 Answer

AVN5500 - Display stuck at "Updating" when using Sirius.

When I play sirius radio, the display is stuck with the message "updating" in the center of the screen and I can't do anything with it. I can't change the channels using the touch screen (I'd have to use channel up and down), I can't show the title of the song being played, etc.

When I first start the car, there is no problem with the display, however, after I go into reverse, or if I were to show the title, then the "updating" message will show. Any idea what's going on here? This message has been there for the past week, so I don't think it's really updating anything from Sirius.

    hey just wondering if you ever figured out the problem , I'm having the same problem , very irritating!!!.

    This is the original poster.
    My display actually fixed itself, so now my display does not show the "updating" message anymore.
    What I think happened was when the sirius was doing its update, I might have cut it off (i.e, not letting it complete its update) and hence, the display kept showing the update message. But when I was driving from Houston to Dallas (roughly 3.5-hour drive), the display just went back to normal. So I guess there was another update from sirius and the system was able to complete the update process.

    I know it's not much help, but I originally thought that this was a permanent problem which turned out to be a temporary one.

    I have the same issue. For a number of weeks now the display has been stuck on "Updating". Dropped a battery charger on the truck and parked it outside in clear view of the sky for about 30 hours. Did not fix the issue. Pulled the power and let it set for about 45 min. Powered system back up. No change in the issue.

    Same issue. Checking now with Sirius to see if they can re-send the update.

Check fuse. Second if radio has any display and no functions are working it is likely a radio failure. To remove and replace this radio is very simple. The top of the dash around the radio will remove allowing for access to the screws retaining the unit.

Your best solution would be to look for a salvaged unit. If not than find a service center that provides an estimate on the repair cost.
The GPS Sirius radio with multi CD's is very expensive to buy new.

Question about sirius radio for kenwood cd player


You can try it, but I think you might need a media expander/controller. I see some going for around $100 on Ebay. It allows you to add and interface many component to your deck. But make sure the deck ready to control it. You can tell by the label on the deck(Ipod ready, XM ready, Sirius ready, Changer ready....ect). Goodluck.

Trying to add more audio equipment to my Pioneer Nav stereo


The Avic N2 is only XM ready not Sirius ready like the N3, which is SAT ready(both XM and Sirius). If you must have your Sirius the only option left for you is use the rear input on the hide away unit but you won't have it on the touchscreen. There is one more expensive option by have your N2 hardware upgrade to N3, some Ebayer have that service offer for about $275. It's done by replace a surface mounted chip with 70 plus leads. That would take some expert de-solder and solder skill with a solder torch or
a tech's heat gun. I can do it but I don't know which chip it is. I have an immaculate N3 for sale on Ebay. Maybe you could sell your N2 and buy an N3. I usually get about $550-$650 for an N2 depend on the condition. Hope that I did some help. You can call me at 801-414-4566, I would do anything I can. Goodluck.

Sirius radio


From my experience, you can not integrate the vehicle Satellite equipment into aftermarket audio pieces. You will have to buy a JVC specific Sirius tuner or use an Fm modulated unit.
