Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
In my experience, some devices (of the audio or stereo type) that are in the Japanese language as far as the interface is concerned, cannot be changed to English, because the device was made only for the Japanese market... and often, devices made only for the Japanese market only have Japanese language capability.
Of course, we cannot assume that in advance. Please let me know what the maker, and model name or model #, of the device in your Mazda2 automobile is, if possible.
And I will research the language options for that specific device.
Pioneer c9p4 .... I do not find a reference to that readily. What type of device is it?
Is it perhaps an AVIC ? navigation device, with screen?
OK. I will research it (busy with other cases too), and get back to you. Feel free to post me a reminder if I seem late.
If your model works as others do, then it should work like this:
Basically you will press SRC until the unit is OFF, then press and hold the multi-control until the initial setting screen appears.
The language selection should be the first item in the list of initial settings. And though unreadable... well, there's no way to do this unless it *is* readable.
(You don't read Japanese do you? the 'English' selection *might* be in English characters. But I greatly doubt it... I'm sorry...)
Well... try what I described. Then at the initial screen of initial settings, see if (by scrolling through them) any of the settings choices say, 'English'.
(If you could read kanji characters, I could tell you what to look for. But that would be quite difficult, though not impossible at all.)
Then I'm sorry - this stereo may not be able to be changed to any other language.
I have Opted Out, in case there is a solution that I just don't know about - Opting Out invites other Experts to look at this case. Thanks for following the process thus far.
