Customer Question

I have a pioneer avic5100nex and without warning the screen went blank. Unable to use maps or play a cd. I was wondering if I blew a fuse and if so how do I change it.

Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question. A blank screen is not a good sign. It means the unit either lost power, or failed initialization.Check the power connection, and yes, the fuse (for the power, which should be in your auto's fuse block) ...might have blown. If worst comes to worst, it will have to be repaired or replaced. (How old is it? do any lights show up on it anywhere when it is turned On?)

Thanks for your response. Unfortunately due to a family emergency I have not been able to follow up on your advice. The car is garaged for the moment. I will follow up as soon as I can.
