Well, I would first try holding down the reset button for a solid 10 seconds, the manual stipulates a visit to your local authorized dealer, and of all things: I can't vouch for any of this professionally.

That's not much help. Can't get to the website it wants to send me. I will take it to a pioneer dealer. Thanks anyway.

My apologies, if they don't have the software from the manufacturer the only thing they could do is a factory reset, which is known as a hard reset, and that involves a certain process most people would be oblivious about from the install manual since the owners manual isn't always full coverage in those kind of situations. I can't quite say there is a magic sequence that would do anything for you, best of luck.
