    Re: pico fuse problem

    the pic above will fix the problem perfect and is 100% safe.

    If you send it out and have it fixed, you can and will most likely blow the new pico at some point.

    Re: pico fuse problem

    you only damage the HU output by messing with RCA's when the HU is on. don't do that and you're fine.

    as a general rule, never mess with audio cables while equipment is energized.

    i've talked to Pioneer engineers about this, they don't have/won't disclose a "work around" for this.



    have you been helped by me? i'd love to know. shoot me a PM.

    No unfortunately I don't. All that was there was the ground pins for the RCA pig tail, soldered a wire across the pins and then another one to a chassis tab.

    This is for the PRS880 others may/will be different.

    I have one of the top side though. The little chip below the exclamation point with the d on it is the fuse.

    Re: pico fuse problem

    ^ There used to be a picture on here of how to do it with external RCA wiring, but its just as simple. Make the ground wires longer and just tape/zip tie them to the RCA cables.

    Pioneer headunit pico fuse fix *56k* - HondaCivicForum.com

    That one looks terribly ghetto, but I'm sure you can make it look nicer.

    Re: pico fuse problem

    i've replaced my pico fuse twice, the second time with a 1A rated fuse. It still blew when I looked at the HU wrong one day. And no, I won't do yours. I don't like to solder stuff that small lol. What I ended up doing was bypassing it. Sick of ripping the dash apart.

    That has the plug in harness, the white connector is where the harness plugs in.
