    Yes all are in the same area. You don't think that this problem is related to the Upgraded Flex-Cable for Flip Screen in Navigation Models AVIC-N1 and AVIC-N2 witch is replaced by Pioneer for free ?? Thanks for your help.

    Will replaceing the detachable faceplate fix the problem since the buttons that are not working are in that area? Thanks for all your help.

You may have the circuit board broken that holds those buttons. If I remember correctly those are all in the same area. If so, you have some kind of a problem with the board. Nothing you can do to fix it except to take it to a service center and see if they can repair the board or replace it.

    No, I don't think that is it. The cable you refer to is the one that is inside the main unit and goes from the LCD to the main board. It would not have the symptoms you have, it would make the unit dead.

    That is a very good possibilty, I can not guarentee it without checking it myself, but if I were a betting man I would not bet against it.



    Since Pioeer does the free upgrade of the ribbon cable inside the unit, you really should get that done. It will fail on you at some point because of that cable, and that is why they are offering free repairs for it. The new cable they put in is an upgraded version that will last longer.

Notice: Upgraded Flex-Cable for Flip Screen in Navigation Models AVIC-N1 and AVIC-N2 To: January 3, 2007 Dear Valued Customer: Re: Upgraded Flex-Cable for Flip Screen in Navigation Models AVIC-N1 and AVIC-N2 We would like to inform you of a potential service issue with Pioneer's AVIC-N1 and AVIC-N2, inform you of our plans to resolve this service issue, and ask for your help in notifying consumers. If a consumer is not experiencing any issues currently, there is no need for the consumer to take immediate action because the one-time fix to resolve the service issue will be available if an AVIC-N1 and AVIC-N2 later experiences the service issue. _Importantly, the service issue does not pose any health or safety risk._ Pioneer is aware of a potential issue with the flex-cable powering the flip screen to the AVIC-N1 and the AVIC-N2. After a number of power cycles, the cable has been observed to fail and cause the unit to malfunction (symptoms may include, but are not limited to, the flip-screen becoming blank) -- flex-cable failure can only be confirmed by Pioneer; standard service charges may apply for service issues not related to the flex-cable upgrade. This issue may affect almost all AVIC-N1 units and AVIC-N2 units. Please contact Pioneer at the number listed below if you have a question about whether your AVIC-N1 or AVIC-N2 unit is affected by this issue, or if a specific malfunction affecting your AVCI-N1 or AVIC-N2 is related to this issue. To address this issue, Pioneer is providing a one-time cable upgrade to consumers for their AVIC-N1 and AVIC-N2 at no charge to consumers for parts and labor. Pioneer will offer the free upgrade either upon request or automatically if an affected unit is serviced for another reason. Pioneer will exclusively perform the free cable upgrade for all units (i.e., no other service facility should perform the cable upgrade). If you own an AVIC-N1 or AVIC-N2 and you are experiencing the service issue, please contact Pioneer Customer Service toll free at 800-421-1603 to arrange for the cable upgrade. Pioneer service representatives are available Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. (Eastern Time). Customers who have paid for the cable upgrade are eligible for reimbursement of certain service costs if sufficient proof of service can be provided -- please contact Pioneer at the above-listed phone number for more information regarding reimbursement rules. Customers can also review FAQs regarding this service issue. Click here to view the FAQs. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this service issue may cause you, and we thank you for your cooperation and continued support of Pioneer. Sincerely, Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. *Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc., 2265 East 220th Street, Long Beach, CA 90810* ------------------------------------------------------------------------

Some buttons don't work


Pioneer AVIC-D1 Touch Screen Recalibration

If your pioneer AVIC car navigation unit does not register your touches or the wrong button is “pressed”, you need to re-calibrate your screen’s digitizer.

1-Hold the Eject button down until the face of the unit drops all the way
2-Using a pen hold down the reset button (just above the joystick) and the navigation disc eject simultaneously.
3-Release the reset button.
4-Release the dvd eject button next. The display will read “press reset”
5-Push the joystick up two times.
6-Push the joystick down twice.
7-Press the joystick in.
8-The service menu will appear after a short pause. You can navigate the service menu using the joystick.
9-Chose the first menu option and press in on the joystick.
10-Trace the screen with a stylus.
11-"P.ADJ" is the back button
12-Chose the second menu item in order to calibrate the touch screen. Use a stylus again and tap the "+" sign on the screen. (You may have to touch slightly off center if the digitizer is damaged. In which case things will still be off but it will be much better.)

AVIC-N1 opens to blanks screen and none of buttons work


It is probably the ribbon cable that you can see when the screen closes. This is a known problem and the part is sometimes hard to find. But is available.

Pioneer avic n1 video by pass but now doesnt work when i upgraded w n3 disc


I am pretty sure that pioneer does this so you cant bypass it. The n1, you just have to ground the parking brake wire,the n2 you have to solder the 2 points together under the piece of tape, the n3 you have to move over the switch on the side of the unit. Which all of these void your warranty anyway but I think that is why people eventually downgrade the the old dvds.
