Press the RESET button with a pen tip or paper clip and hold for 20 seconds

The device should factory reset now without any password.

I spoke with an agent and it said it must be sent to Pioneer to be unlocked
Car Electronics Technician: Josh, Technician replied 10 months ago

I am glad to hear that you have a solution but I apologize that you have to send it into Pioneer to unlock it.

Sad ...
Car Electronics Technician: Josh, Technician replied 10 months ago

I understand -- Unfortunately, I am only the messenger in the situation but hopefully you received a good discount on the device so that it makes the waiting time worth it.

It appears you asked for another Expert...??
Your first expert was correct in giving you the Phone Number of "Pioneer", as Avic-5200NEX is NOT a "Panasonic"

<Please call 1-***-***-**** to speak with Panasonic to see if they have a master reset code>

.

You will have to ship the Avic-5200NEX to Pioneer, as there is no way to RESET the Unit, without Pioneer help.

Sorry I could not provide further
