Help me blow my pioneer radio for the service plan !

Yo v6p

I have bought a pioneer avic-d1 in 2007 at best buy and took the service plan. The radio is acting funky, like the screen is décalibrated, sometimes the front planel doens't open so I can't change my cds, radio make a funny noise when cold, etc..

Problem is each time I send that POS radio for repair, it come back as fuxxed as b4. Best buy says that after 4 MAJOR repair or if the radio is unreparable, they'll give me another one... Last time I sent it for repair, they didn't count it as a major repair since the guy only lubed the gears (my ass) and recalibrated the screen...(whitch came exactly the same as b4 2 days after the radio came back) I don't want to have that POS radio in my dash this summer so i'm looking for a way to blow the amp inside so they wont be able to fix it since it's discontinued since 2005.

I was thinking replacing the 10A fuse by a 15A fuse and connect the speakers wires together and playing a big ass loud song on it... It's ether that or I put the radio in the microwave for 5 sec...

You guys have any other idea I could use ? Is some of you work at best buy that could give me a confirmation that If the amp blow inside, they will most likely give me another one ?




Thanks for the input guys

Either of those things would probably do it. As long as it doesn't look obvious that you did in on purpose.

^^ no cuz each time I send it in, the prob is back after 2 weeks... and It take 2 month each time... one time they even brought it back saying they didn't have found the problem... we hooked the radio on the test bench in the install bay and the install guy noticed the problem... so they didn't even plugged the radio at the shop...

Best buy have that 60 days policies so if it's not fixed after 45 days, they send it back to the customer so when he send it back again, the timer is resetted...
