Disc Type Not Recognized
Always make sure to check the bottom of the disc before inserting it. Look for scratches, dents, or any other issues. Never insert any broken, scratched, or dirty disc. Use microfiber towels or clean tissue papers to clean the bottom of the disc before playing it.
While driving if your car encounter any sudden brake, bumps or vibrations can affect the disc. If your car got a bad suspension or the road is bumpy, your DVD player might not be able to run smoothly.

How Do You Bypass the Parking Brake on a Pioneer Radio?
Now that Pioneer is well informed about the old trick of grounding the parking brake wire, you’ll have to use other methods such as installing a switch that allows you to flip it on and then off for your movies to play. Using switches mounted behind your new radio works perfectly, and it’s really easy to install as well.
Here’s how to install MicroBypass on your car system.
- First, locate the Blue wire from MicroBypass and connect it to the Pioneers Blue w/White wire. Make sure not to connect the solid blue wire.
- Take the black wire and connect it to either the factory ground wire/the pioneers’ black ground wire or its chassis ground. You can also share a connection with your new radio.
- Finally, connect the green wire from your MicroBypass and Pioneers green parking brake wire, which is usually a 4 ft light green wire.
You should be aware that it is against the law to have a movie playing while driving. Watching something on a long trip while sitting in the passenger seat may not be harmful but you should seriously concentrate if you’re driving the vehicle. Consider the safety measures before installing a bypass to play DVD on Pioneer radio.
