PIONEER ERROR CODES

This information is from a CLD-D925 player but is relevant to many others, and refers to the codes displayed on the TV screen when an error occurs with a Pioneer LaserDisc player, this may also be displayed on the player display on some models. If this code has disappeared but the fault remains the code can be re-displayed by holding down the <CLEAR> button for approximately 5 seconds.

The code is displayed in the top L/H corner of the screen and is in the form:

<letter> <number>  (two digit hex number)

eg. A1 (FF)

The Hex code is only of relevance to those with specialist diagnostic equipment, and the important part of the code is the letter+number part which is briefly as below.
