View Full Version : can you give a H/U a Tune up?

My Pioneer DEH-P9400MP is probably at my door step as I speak...I got it for a steal!!!but it is probably quite used..the seller claims it works AMAZING..has a pixel out in the display but no biggie and I can get a new faceplate if this bothers me too much.

BUT...I am worried this H/U might be on it's last leg...That the CD carriage is all dirty from years of use...that some knobs and components might be worn..
Can I take my H/U somewhere to get a "Tune Up?"..replacing some of the parts for new ones..clean it out etc...?? I have never heard of this before but I wonder if I can essentially refurbish this Head unit.

NO..I do not want to get a "new one" for $300 (in my case the 9400 is $500 new)

Any authorized Pioneer dealer should be able to do that for you. The parts like the CD transports and such are available from Pioneer. But I don't know if it would be worth the money. You could always just pop 'er open yourself and give 'er a shot of that duster stuff.

that seems like a good idea to me. make sure its not clogged full of dirt. maybe that new faceplate will do the trick.

prolly get one off ebay for super cheap form somone who got ripped off.
