Question about Pioneer AVIC-D2 DVD Nav/6.5" Screen/AM/FM/CD Player Car Video Player

2 Answers

Need to calibrate the screen.

For some reason, my deck is overheating up to the point where the buttons on the touch screen are shifted. I can't get to the buttons on the left. Whenever I try to push the buttons on the left, it ends up pushing the button that was next to it. I tried reseting to factory settings but that still didn't work. I was told that the deck was suppose to come with a palm pilot looking thing but I didn't get anything with mines and I bought it from a store. But it was over a year ago so whatever warranty i have on it is probably gone. What can I do to fix this?? How can I get another one of those "palm pilot" things?

    i was told to ship it into pioneer and they will calibrate it for 250. That's so much. so i end up leaving it the way it is.

    I have the same problem with the screen. Mine activate the button to the left of the one I touch. Also my buttons do not activate at all to the touch sometimes. I performed a reset and that just lost all my preprogramed stations. How can I calibrate the screen?

    I got this info from another forum. Try this

    It seems that my screen calibration changes with temperature and humidity. So naturally the screen gets out of wack in the summer.

    Anyhow, this is what you do.

    1. open the face of the D1 all the way, as if you were to eject the dvd nav disc (but don't do it).
    2. hold the reset button (just above the joystick, you need a pen to do it) and the nav disc eject at the same time.
    3. let go of the reset button
    4. let go of the dvd eject button. the screen will say "press reset"
    5. push the joystick up twice.
    6. push the joystick down twice.
    7. then press the joystick. wait a few seconds and you should be in the service menu. You should be able to navigate the service menu using the joystick.
    8. okay this is the tricky part. Go to the screen trace screen (I don't remember the exact name), it should be the first menu item. A screen will come up with the perimeter of the screen outlined. Trace the screen with a stylus. This somehow lets the D1 to know the available area that is "active"
    9. press back, which I think is the "P.ADJ" button on the lower right.
    10. go to the second menu item which is the touch screen calibration. Just use your stylus and touch the "+" sign on the screen. It's much like calibrating a windows mobile touchscreen. You will have about a dozen "+" to touch to get the screen calibrated.
    11. You can mess with the other menus to see if your screen is "really" calibrated.

    Okay that's it. I think the D1 resets itself so you will lose your radio stations, etc. And the nav will reset so Los Angeles will show up on the nav screen for the first minute or so. So don't get alarmed.

    Now here's the thing. After initially going through this thing, I could not get it to calibrate correctly in step 10. I kept pressing the "+" but could not get it to acknowledge that I've touch the screen. I suspect you have the same problem as I. So in step 8, this is what I did. When you trace the perimeter of the screen, do not go all the way to the right side perimeter. Lay off it by about 1/4". This tricks the unit in thinking that the usable screen is smaller. Then go through the rest of the steps as usual. In step 10 you may have to be off the "+" by about 1/8" of an inch to the right. You will know what I mean when you start doing it and messing with it.

    Believe me, I know that it is frustrating that the touch screen buttons are off about ~1/4" to 1/2". And half the time the on screen zoom buttons and audio adjustment buttons do not work. However, if you follow this procedure, I'm willing to bet that it will work. The screen may be off just a wee bit, but at least you can access all the touchscreen functions. Give it a try.

How can I fix a calibration problem when it won't let me select the 'settings' button?

If it is an android phone, there is usually a way to access the settings by pulling down the window shade from the top. If your click-point is moved up you might be able to get there. Also. Try a restart or reset of the phone.

Touch screen blocked

The touch screen could have lost its calibration, but there is a good chance that it is bad, and needs to be replaced. To calibrate it, push the yellow clear modes key, then the numbers 1, 9, 9, 3, then push the red "Clear / Stop" key 5 times, and choose number one. Follow the prompts. Use a stylus or other dull pointed item. If you don't get a response, you need a new touch screen.

My touchscreen doesnt work on my Ikasu 8gb media player for some reason anyone know how I can fix this?

If the touch screen does not work, it may be because it is out of calibration.
You can go into settings and navigate using the buttons to recalibrate the touchscreen.
Slide the on/off slider briefly. It should give you a menu.
Use the - button to scroll down to calibrate.
Push the M button
This gives the calibration screen.
Press the small square that appears in each corner, and finally in the center.
This should give you the touch screen, hopefully working.

There is a manual and other information here.

DCS T70 LCD does work properly .I mean to say if i try to use one function another function gets started instead of desired function


Based on the information you've provided, it seems that the touch screen panel is not aligned. You can try Calibrating the touch screen to resolve the issue.
Calibration option is in the Main Settings 1 Menu of the Camera. Calibration option enables you to perform calibration when the touch panel buttons do not react at the appropriate points where you touch. You can use the paint pen, touch the X mark displayed on the screen. The X mark moves on the screen. Once the calibration option is finished successfully, the touch screen should work.
The Calibration option can be done only if the Menu is accessible.
You can also perform a power reset before performing the Calibration.

Performing a manual power reset

Turn off the camera.

Remove the battery pack.

Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds.

Allow the camera to remain without power for 60 seconds.

Reinsert the battery pack.

Turn on the camera.
This should resolve the issue.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Touch pad works some of the time....When I get to the accept liability screen, I cannot accpt

Sounds like the touch screen may need calibration. Turn the unit off then turn it back on but hold the power button to the ON position for about a minute. The screen calibration should come up. If this does not work you may have another problem with the touch screen.

Touch screen

The touch screen wont register if the unit has been reset and sometimes when it updates. Use the side buttons to control the cursor. Click the menu button, and then use the down arrow key to slect settings with the ok button. use the down arrow button to scroll down to display. click ok. The display screen will come up. Use the down arrow key to go to touch screen calibration. Use the ok button to select this option and follow the instructions. You will have to use the stylus to tap three calibration points on the touch screen and it should work fine from there.
