I am having problems with my HU frequently not connecting with a satellite. I therefore do not have navigation. This problem had been happening with more frequency lately. However, I have had this unit for a while and it never gave me problems before. Any ideas what the problem could be?
jcivic posted a topic in Problems/TroubleshootingHi, I have a Pioneer X930BT head unit and have the XM GEX-P920XM Satellite Digital Tuner installed. The XM unit was working fine after initial installation, but about 2 weeks after the install the XM Icon stopped showing up on the screen (not coming up on the left hand menu where ipod, fm, am, sd card, etc. are showing up). I've tried the all following to try and fix the problem: - Battery pull (pulled the battery for 1 hour) - Took out the deck and unplugged the XM plug - Unplugged the power to the XM Sat unit - Did a factory reset on the head unit - Resest my XM radio ID - Updated to the newest firmware So far none of this has worked and I'm wondering if anybody else has run into this problem? I have a one year subscription to XM so that is not the issue. I'm wondering if it is the head unit itself but given that it was working fine after the initial installation I have no idea what's going on. If anybody has any tips, help or a solution to this problem i would greatly appreciate it. Thanks for your time.
Hey everyone, first post here, wanted to let you guys know about a problem i'm having with the Pioneer AVH-X3500BHS i bought and installed in my girlfriends 2012 Subaru outback. I bought the unit at a local shop after doing lots of research, and when we got the car back from the shop with the unit installed, we were very happy with it. The menus were a little tricky at first but we got used to them quickly and are extremely happy with all features of the radio. Unfortunately we were having an issue with the satellite portion of the radio. I purchased and properly installed the recommended SiriusXM SXV200v1 satellite tuner, but the stereo would not grant me access to the satellite menu, almost like it wasn't detecting the tuner. So i figured the tuner was DOA and exchanged it for a new one at bestbuy, installed the new one still problems. So i called the shop that did the primary install for me, and they told me that this was the first 2013 model they had in the shop and they were not familiar with it and i should give pioneer a call and see what they say. So i finally got through to pioneer this morning and what they told me did not make me happy. As soon as i got a person on the phone i told them my model stereo and asked them if there was some special setting i couldn't find to unlock the satellite menu. He responded by asking me if I had steering wheel controls installed, i said yes. He told me that they are having an issue where people who had steering wheel controls installed were not able to use a satellite tuner, he said the only fix he had at the moment was to unplug the steering wheel controls, and call whoever built the steering wheel control adapter i was using. I just called the shop where i purchased the parts and had them installed, told them what's going on and they're going to call metra and see if they have a fix for me, hopefully i'll hear back from them in a few hours. Hopefully this is a minor issue that will be ironed out quickly with a firmware update or a new adapter from metra, I would hate to have to go to a different stereo from another manufacturer over such a stupid issue that should've been caught before the units rolled out for the new year. Has anyone else run into this issue with other models in the 2013 line up?
Mr. Underhill posted a topic in XM/Sirius/HD Radio and Traffic ReceiversI have an Avic F-700bt. I have a SCC1 connected to the CD-SB10 which then connects to the head unit (the Avic). This has been the set-up for quite sometime until just recently the Sirius stopped producing audio. All other sources (iPod, CD, etc) produce audio). Visually all the sirius information is displayed (as if the unit was playing satellite radio). I have contacted Sirius and I swapped out the SCC1 for a new one. I also swapped the cable that connects the SCC1 to the CD-SB10 Module. Still no audio. However, after I swapped the SCC1 for a new one I noticed the following things, in addition to no audio still: 1) I can no longer change the station. It is stuck on Station 100. Yes, Howard. 2) While the Sirius rep was on the phone activating the new SCC1 I heard all sorts of static and stuff. Noises that I was unable to turn down (or Up) using the volume control on the Avic. I could not tell what the audio was -- it was basically just crackling. So, in sum, still no audio and I now I can't change the station. Btw. I tried reseting the unit and that did not do anything either. How else can I trouble shoot this to isolate where the problem is?
