This kinda sounds like a hdd issue....which is weird because I've now heard of two factory hdd's going bad...and both of them were from units bought from unauthorized dealers. It has me wondering where they got their units from.

I had the same issue. I think I finally found the root cause. The hot weather. Someone else posted on here with the same problem and it clearly states in the owners manual the operating temps of the unit. Sure enough, a hot summer day in Kansas, with a black interior, the temps rose above the max temp allowed, and the Z1 got stuck on the Pioneer splash screen. Sometimes a reset worked after the car cooled down a little. Don't worry about the warranty, just give Pioneer the name of the local authorized Pioneer dealership (they won't know the difference if you tell them you got the Z1 as a gift there and you don't have the receipt). Worked for me when I called them on an unrelated issue.
so how the heck do i get it to go away?!

At least this way on cooler days you could put a switch in line with the fan and only power it when you need it.

I have only had the system installed for a few months.
Actually, come to think of it, I can use the "SOURCE" button on the remote to access the music on the HDD... so it CAN'T be a HDD issue, right? Any other thoughts?

I thought it was related to the bypass and just sent them a tech support email, but I guess maybe it wasn't related to that at all
I would think that pioneer would have some way to work on this as I have never heard of this being a problem with any other head unit until the z1
