sounds like you may have blown a ground trace to the rcas. it's a fairly common problem with pioneer decks, as the ground trace is usually fairly thin. try running a wire from ground to the rca shield, if the sound goes away that is the problem. a quick and dirty fix is to run a wire from ground to the rca shield and solder it in place. otherwise you can repair the ground trace inside the head unit.

the rca shield is the outside metal part of the rca cable. if you think of it as two circles, the inner (the part that plugs into the small part of the rca jack) and the outer circle, the ground is the outer circle.
