Pioneer AC Error Codes and Troubleshooting



Because there are capacitors on the PCBs and relative circuitry in outdoor units, even after shutting down the power supply, electrical power remain charged in those capacitors. Do not forget to discharge the electrical power remaining in the capacitors before servicing.

Diagnosis and Solution

Pioneer AC Diagnosis and Solution

EEPROM parameter error diagnosis and solution(E0/F4)

Error Code: E0/F4

Malfunction decision conditions: Indoor or outdoor PCB main chip does not receive feedback from EEPROM chip.

Supposed causes:

  • Installation mistake
  • PCB faulty

Trouble shooting: Shut off the power supply and turn it on 5 seconds later. Is it still displaying the error code ?

If the EEPROM chip is welded on main PCB, replace the main PCB directly. Otherwise, check whether the EEPROM chip plugged in main PCB well?

Yes: Replace the main PCB

No: Correct the connection

Zero crossing detection error diagnosis and solution (E2)

Error Code: E2

Malfunction decision conditions: When PCB does not receive zero crossing signal feedback for 4 minutes or the zero crossing signal time interval is abnormal.




Supposed causes:

  • Connection mistake
  • PCB faulty

Trouble shooting: Check if the connections and power supply is normal?

Yes: Indoor main PCB is defective. Replace indoor main PCB.

No: Correct the connections. Trun on the unit when the power supply is good.

Over voltage or too low voltage protection diagnosis and solution (P1)

Error Code: P1

Malfunction decision conditions: An abnormal voltage rise or drop is detected by checking the specified voltage detection circuit.

Supposed causes:

  • Power supply problems.
  • System leakage or block
  • PCB faulty

High temperature protection of compressor top diagnosis and solution(P2)

Error Code: P2

Malfunction decision conditions: If the sampling voltage is not 5V, the LED will display the failure.

Supposed causes:

  • Power supply problems.
  • System leakage or block
  • PCB faulty
