Anyone having an issue with static while playing iPod or iPhone via USB? Big issues reported a few years ago in the Apple Forums. Had a JVC Deck and one of the few things it did well is play my iPod static free. My NEX 4000 from day one has had intermittent static issues. Rewired the deck, tried a lot of combinations of different iPods, cables and using USB 1 & 2. Nothing works long term. After a rewire I went months with no issues, then poof! It's back. Happens usually within a couple minutes of startup, and thankfully i can eliminate it by switching inputs, then back to iPod. Still annoying and maybe an Apple issue, but again, worked great on my JVC video deck for years. On a semi related note, since the carplay update the iPod will not resume play - it's on pause. Further to that, sometimes just says "ready" and there are no control buttons. Again I switch inputs and it loads up fine. Clearly the software is buggy. Again, I've used a variety of cables (including apple), different iPhones & iPods...problem is consistent. Any help or tips are greatly appreciated.
Something random happened yesterday to my Pioneer AVIC-Z150BH, and I'm stumped... I stopped at a gas station to fill up, and upon turning my car back on I received static for the FM channel I was listening to. I checked my other FM presets and they were all static as well. I checked AM and got all of them clear as day (it was even able to get HD signals), as well as Sirius/XM. Ran out and bought another Antenna adapter, but still had the same problem. Check the GMOS-LAN-03 adapter, and the wiring harnesses to make sure no wires came loose (which would be hard to do since I soldered everything from the GMOS to the aftermarket HU harness). I'm not sure if anyone else experienced this, or if anyone would have any tips. Contacted Pioneer and they said "Reset to factory defaults, and if that doesn't work the radio may need to be serviced". Although that's great, I'd hate to take everything out of my HHR (if anyone has one, you know space is very limited behind the stereo and you have to be creative with putting everything back there). Only good thing about installing this HU is that I can take apart the waterfall/center of my HHR real quick since I've done it so much.
hey guys, i just installed my f700bt today and im experiencing two problems. 1. when i am playing songs on my ipod, as soon as it changes to another song, you hear a static-like noise. but it is fine for the rest of the song. I think my ipod cable is a oem pioneer cable. 2. I have my rear view hooked up and my reverse gear wire spliced to my reverse lights. but it does not automatically change to the rear view when i put the car in reverse. the camera works great when i manually chose to show the rear view camera. anyone have any solutions to these two problems? thanks!
I got my x940bt installed in my Mercedes C230 at the local Best Buy - I know, not the best place but I figured it was a straight forward install. I had them install an inexpensive rearview camera, the Metra Axxess steering wheel controls, and Scosche VW03B wire harness. Of course it's still not wired up completely as there are several functions that are not accessable (greyed out) and the steering wheel controls don't work. I believe at least part of the problem is with the green ground wire. When that was firmly attached, all the functions looked available. However, what is concerning me right now is that I get static when listening to FM (that's all I've listened to so far). It isn't constant, it's more like snaps and pops that occur at random intervals. It also seems to happen mostly when I'm driving. Sometimes it will go for several minutes without any static and sometimes, it is more frequent. Going under overpasses SEEMS to make it worse, but I'm not sure. Does anybody out there have any ideas about what could cause this? Thanks!
