A fatal error in e-mail is not so fatal, it means that your message can't be sent to the right address. In your Pioneer it probably also means you have to reprogram something. I own 2 F1007 300 CD Jukes that are Pioneer it's a good company that make good products. Look in your manual for such a item, or if it states you call the company they usually have a toll free number for help, they unlike companies like PFE(The Final Countdown disc) want to please and help their customers.
When ever I see a error code I look it up in my manual, if I can't find it I do as above. I just answered another simular type of question, by saying unplug the unit for a minimum of 48 hours. In that length of time all memory that isn't ROM (Remeber Only Memory), will be lost or cleared IMHO. I hope this helps you
30 seconds should be enough to clear volatile memory and Kevinw is already doing that. It's like a computer. Fatal error means the box can't continue without a reboot. Having it happen often in a box where the software isn't reachable would make me think it's:
1. A software problem (which other people would also be having) and would need to be corrected by the manufacturer.
2. A hardware problem which would require calling the manufacturer.
Therefore, contacting the manufacturer as Hob suggests would also be my recommendation. That ROM thing was a joke wasn't it?
I called the manufacturer and they said it was more than likely one of 2 things...a chip needing replacement or the box overheating.
The box was stacked on top of my audio receiver. I moved it last night to see if heat was a factor. When I turned on the box everything was fine including 2 additional stations that had come on line in the Atlanta area.
I am hoping the error was a combination of the heat and the new stations sending a weak signal untill they were ready to deliver programming.
