For some reason, my 880 won't turn on. It was working fine this morning and once I got out of class I put the faceplate in but it won't turn on. This happen to me twice so far, but couple of times in the past with the 8600 and 80. Anyone else having issues with motorized faceplate from pioneer?

Check fuses ??

is the fuse inside the HU? I've checked everything and power is fine on the wires.

the fuse is on the harness. if i vaguely recall, it is on the yellow batt wire.

looks fine to me.

gah...i hate it when pioneer decks fail on me. We checked for power on all the wires and there's power on all of them. for the ACC there's power on one end and no power on the other end.

not sure the problem but my 880 has been problem free. it's my second pioneer. so far they have treated me well.

did you buy it authorized? can you use the warranty?

Umm when you said there was power on one end and no power on the other on the acc wire , are there any inline fuses on this wire ?

bought it used.

I checked all the fuses except the one inside the deck because we opened it and it's so hard to get to the inside. There's power on one side of the ACC and there's none on the other, not sure if it's suppose to be like that.

02-20-2008, 09:51 PM
There was power from the part where it's before the resistor thing. We opened that part and everything seemed fine, and after the resistor to the pioneer harness and HU no power.

.. Did you test while the car was off ?

actually it's extremely easy to get inside of it. but there is no fuse inside other than the pico fuse for the rca ground.

which wire are you talking about? sounds like the yellow power wire.

red ACC one

I dunno man...makes no sense that it failed on me out of nowhere. Working one second...doesn't work 2 hours later? It's been like 7 hour since it hasn't been on. I just got my new subs too. =( maybe i just have to ebay this "nonfunctional deck" and maybe get a new one.

red ACC one

there is a resistor or something on the red wire? i know there is that big block on the yellow power wire but don't remember seeing anything on the red wire. it has been almost a year since i wired that harness up though so maybe i just don't remember it. it's gotta be something with that wring though. loose connection or something.

XxSuperAdamxX
02-20-2008, 10:06 PM
I thought it was a wire problem too but, out of nowhere? My car was parked, don't think any Earthquake happen and my car didn't get hit super hard, so I don't think my car could of shaken while I was gone to cause a krazy wire to get loose. Hmmm.....never had much problems with harness wire before. I just gotta pray everytime i start my car that that HU will turn on. That's what I did in the past with my old pioneer decks sometimes.

Yea its a small cylinder plastic piece which has a resistor of some sort inside. Has 2 little clips on it if I recall ?

Id say maybe try hooking it up in another car and see what happens ..

Yeah, but I don't know anyone who else the same deck or harness as me.

02-20-2008, 10:40 PM
you could always just test to see it it comes on just using a 12v battery. wire the + to + - to - and acc wire to +. see if it comes on.

yup, why not. :D i am running a 300 watt mono RF amp in my room for HT with a car battery wired up just like that. i just have to remember to disconnect a wire when i turn the stereo off. kinda ghetto but it works for the time being. but same concept.

if it comes on then it's not the HU's fault, but the cars or wiring somewhere else.

you have done what? it's pretty simple. the positive needs to go to positive, the negative needs to go to negative, and the acc wire needs to see power for the unit to turn on. it's as simple as that.

XxSuperAdamxX
02-20-2008, 11:40 PM
Just to make sure...the ACC and the yellow (positve+) touches the positve battery and the black wire on the deck touches the negative of battery right?

yessir! you got it. hook it up like that and push the volume knob. if it doesn't come on then you have a faulty HU. if it comes on it's the car/wiring somewhere else.

orrrr take it into a place that has a pioneer (premier) demo board and ask them to try it for you. it does sound like a faulty unit but

XxSuperAdamxX
02-21-2008, 12:27 AM
well...i tested my friends HU on my harness. His works fine. It's the HU =(. Anyone know where i can get it repaired? I'd assume it's gonna cost how much HU cost just to repair it.

you plugged his pioneer into your pioneer harness?

call pioneer for a service center near you.

Sure it's dead? or taking a nap? Sometimes my deck takes a nap on me and turns on out of nowhere. Oh well...i'ma work my @$$ off and use all my tip money for that deck...or should i get the new one!? What is the new version of this deck called and coming out next month?

Anyone ever heard about the ribbon inside the HU? I"m hearing that maybe if I replace the ribbon, the hu will power back on.

Millertime1028
02-21-2008, 03:12 AM
^Yea , A good friend of mine has a 9 series Pioneer H/U and he had this issue . His deck stopped working just like yours actually and he bought the ribbon and repaired it himself . Not really sure if its the same with the 880 ..

Strange............I know when I take my face plate off and then put it back on sometimes it don't work. I have to shift it a little, which I don't know if that is normal or not, lol! Then if that don't work, I have to shut off car and then turn it back on. Then it works perfect. I tend not to take it out too much.

Hope you get it figured out.

02-24-2008, 06:03 PM
Ya I would try takin the faceplate of the HU off and puttin it back on.

Doubtful that its the ribbon.

If you want I can try to replace the ribbon for ya if you get the parts..


Also someone correct me if I'm wrong, but the pioneer HU's require the connection of the antenna adapter to turn on, or is that a nissan thing?

Sold the deck for 82 on ebay. Bought a 7800 for replacement for now, Just spent 275 with 1 year warranty on ebay. So i'm going back to the 880. I relaly loved that deck.

Wow .. didnt expect you too sell .. lol . The 7800 is a good deck though . Own one myself . Get to put w/e images you want on there and what not . Pretty decent equalization with the deck also . Just missing the active capabilities

yes, the 7800 is pretty **** good. i went from the 7800 to the 880.

XxSuperAdamxX
03-04-2008, 01:45 AM
Yeah...I like the 7800 but it has a nasty ground loop and alt whine which can be fixed easily but I don't feel like fixing it haha. The 880 had ZERO ground loop or alt whine whatsoever and I dunno maybe all the talk about the 880 made me wanna get it again.

is the 880 an upgrade version of the 8600?

Thanks nismo but I just bought a new one. I don't think i needed an antenna on for the HU to power on.

Maybe I will do that in the future but i'm scared of theft!!! Maybe I'll just leave it on when i'm at a close friends house where the neighborhood is very safe. I do have a 3.5 clifford matrix which will notify me if someone trying to jack into my car.
