My KVT-617 display unit was stolen out of my dash, but they neglected to snag the items under the rear seat: the "brain" hideaway unit, the HD radio receiver, the 10 disc CD changer, the navigation unit, and the powered subwoofer.
Everything was replaced via the insurance except the sub because the new system was not compatible with the old components. Make me an offer on the items you want!
It's probably your ribbon cable is broken. Pioneer replace it for free the 1st time. Contact them to send it in for service. It is a common issue for the Avic N series. If it is out of warranty then the guy on Ebay will fix it for you for around $100. Try SAME DAY AUDIO SERVICE, his name is Rick and he is very reliable. Goodluck.
I would be willing to bet you have a 8v regulator circuit failure in hideaway Box. I have seen many of these units where a resistor opens and causes 12v instead of 8v to appear at tuner and a few other IC's. Usually But not always destroys tuner. email@example.com if there are questions
To turn off the demo you need to press the src button to put it in standby mode. Then press the menu button as if to change the settings and use the joystick to scroll right until you see demo, then turn it to off....
Do as above to allow you to enter AUX mode this will let you plug in your MP3 player to the input on the face and hear music through it ;)
I have seen problems in the hideaway (brain) where 8v reg circuit fails causing higher voltage(12v to 14v) to be on that 8v line. First component to fail is the Tuner followed by electronic volume ic. I have probably seen 6-8 failures where tuner fails. Fix is to replace tuner and replace open chip resistor in Hideaway box to restore 8v regulator to proper voltage. firstname.lastname@example.org
The brown wire, according to the installation manual, is the "Mute Wire". Their instruction is: "Connect to the terminal that is grounded when either the telephone rings or during conversation."
So this appears to only be necessary if you are also using a mobile phone with your system.
The orange/white wire is the "dimmer control" lead, which should be wired into the switch that turns your car lights on and off. This will probably allow your head unit to dim when you turn the car lights on (night time).
