Hi guys, it is my first post in here. 


I am an electronics engineer, working in field for about 25 years now.



I recently obtained a AVIC F960DAB with problem, but i don't know it's history.

Unit once powered displays the following screen:



What I tried to fix it:
  1. Download latest firmware from Pioneer website, extract to SD card - no change.
  2. Go to the test mode mode using testmode_a.key (with content from https://github.com/b...ster/README.md)
  • only one key worked for me - 007PRODUCT003ALL00833333333007PRODUCT0082013010100820201230000, allowed me to start the unit and go to the FW information screen (see below) and update screen, but it was unable to finish update procedure.
  • other keys did not work (I just simply copied content from website to the testmode_a.key file
  • I also tried to go to the debug screen (as the home screen was available with above key), but it did not accept password (DEVELOPDBG ON).





What else I can do to make it work ?

(I am able to use console)


Best Regards

  1. I am able to enter Test Mode Menu. 
  2. Is there any place I can download factory SD image ?
