Please do not insert CD brush type cleaners in your car cd player and changer. it is NOT recommended.

The reason is that your car cd player has a different mechanism from the "tray in tray out" mechanism of your CDROM/HOME cd PLayer.

If the brush gets stuck/bent/detached into the intricated "Slide in slide out" mechanism, you will have to spend even more repairing it.

For ERROR11 get the HU serviced at PIO authorised center or your local HU repair guy (if you trust him). I've had a problem with my P8650's Color display once and PIO authorized guy (lajpat nagar) said its a Tape wire problem. (the wire which comes from the motorised faceplate to the main body. They quoted me Rs 600 as Service charges and Rs 1500 for that tape wire. Plus i had to leave the HU with them for a week or so.

So after a a few days of hesitation i took my problem to the local repair guy who sits at the car accessories shop in noida. i was skeptical but atleast the HU was in front of me. He openned everything and pointed out that there was a small fuse off and he fixed it for Rs 400. Everything is fine since then. Lately i have started having problems with Rewritable CDs not working and also the OEL uploads not happening. The local guy says he can fix it by servicing the HU which includes lens cleaning. But after googling a bit i think there is a inherent problem with the PIO color display models. so well ... lets see wot happens.

I am afraid that you cannot do it yourself. ideally if it needs to be cleaned, it should be done at a service centre.

cleaning the HU lens cannot be done without removing the HU and it's top cover.

Dont try brush based cleaners. Please. I have 3 friends who tried with sorry results.

Actually, in a tray type cd player, when you remove the top cover, you get access to the optical assembly quite easily. However in a slide in-slide out, tray-free mechanism, there is a complicated metal mechanism that essentially drags the cd into place. It is because of this that one cannot clean the lens easily in a car cd player.

i believe error 11 is that your hu cannot read the disc.i faced a similar problem with my last pioneer mp3 player and had to get it changed because according to the technician,the lens had stopped working

can anyone help me with this thing. as i am planning for a bass-tube for this one. also please suggest me an appropriate bass-tube and a suitable amplifier.
i think you need to get your hu serviced...get the lens cleaned by the authorised service centre or a good repair guy which you trust if its not covered under warranty...if you havent had your lens cleaned before then i think it probably ok...lets hope for the best

Yes you are right, my HU is 4 years old and never done a servicing to it, so got serviced it from a local accessories shop. He charged 100/- for it.

You are right, its mechanical issue, three out of 4 loading springs are not working so replaced them costing 75/- each.

Atlast my HU is back in place, working as it was. Total costs of repair : 325/-.

By the way, i was talking to the repair guy, he says the JBL bass tube can be attached to the HU with out an amp !!!! because the guy claims this particular model(Pioneer DEH-P7450MP) has in-built amp. (but i some how feel doubtfull)
Guys need some information on this.
Is it possible???
