DVD runs when car off

My dvd seems to be searching even when the car is off. Why would it do this? Is it normal? Will it burn itself out?

    The DVD is built into the navigation system. I can hear it searching when the car is off, like when you put a new disc in and it is starting to read it.

Then car is off the DVD operates from car battery. It is normal.
But not good for car battery, so best way is to unplug it
from car outlet after car is off and plug it only
after car is on.
It is the best way to protect car battery from draining out.
Good Luck

2006 trailblazer factory installed DVD has sound but no screen. The screen intermittently comes on, it stays on once it works but if we turn the vehicle off, we get the intermittent behavior. Has an


the factory dvd decks are designed to disable the dash display when the car is running, to negate distracted driving. the factory wires the rear seat dvd displays only to work when car is running, and the dash to work only when the car is either acc, or, possibly, in park.

if the dash is intermittent, and, especially, if the dash display has some dvd video while running(or, more dangerously, when in drive) then a previous owner likely tried to bypass this safety feature by crossing wires under the dash, and did a poor job.



otherwise, lcd screens can become intermittent, in regards to powering on or off, if the backlighting regulating circuits start to fail. this would be an issue with the deck itself, and is merely due to old age (nearly 8 years)

. the hallmark of this problem would be if you were to hold a flashlight to the screen, and see a faint display,- simply lacking the florescent back-lighting.

My cd player taked forever to start playing my burned cd


2001, jeep, "new technology on old IRON?"
burned, burned what? did you RIP a CDDA disc to CDR
or burn a bunch of MP3? , my guess you RIPPED it.?

you expect burned CD to work? CDR or CDRW?
if you read the product datasheet for the actual player it will
list all formats that work (few) back then. RBB was zero.
its not weird, it's history,
there are many formats, for CD.
car CD began with CDDA, discs (like sold on the shelf in a store)
those are not file formatted, its track formatted like an an old LP album. (wiki CDDA)
then came file formats. (vast types. MP3 tops.)
there are 3 levels here.
CDR format.
then file types
last music encoding formats(complex)_ask
i can tell you that not all formats are supported on old cars. few to none.
some do SEEM? to work, but are flaky
and after 13years, not at all or more falky, (weak laser, optics dirty)

why not up grade and use USB sticks. ?????
CDs are pretty dead now.

which player, there are many? in dash.?
http://www.wjjeeps.com/radios.htm#AMFMCD

note the lack of CDR play back ( and all others) until 2002.
and even the 2002 is limited.
all car head ends are limited.
for max files.
max folder.s
max files in folder.

just because a CDR pays in a head end that does not support it
means ZERO, as some heads can see some data and attempt to play it blindly, it's just a very dumb headend. (dumb to a fault)

there are endless posts of users trying 100s of ways to fool it
some can,/ most can't (but is not supported so......)


if really curious. post head end ID , like RBB?
we can get the full spec. on that head.

and this,?

my new jeep supports all these , yours dont
Supported formats are: CDDA, CD-R, CD-RW, MP3,WMA, DVD Video, DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R, DVD+RW, and CDDA+MP3
(this support is progressive from 2002 to present day)

does that help>/?
if not post head end pn. or series class.

Car DVD player won't turn off


You will need to remove the player and send it out for repair, the solid state circuit that turns on the player has a defective diaode most likely in one orf the chips.

Dvd player DVP534k play region 2


If you are speaking about a DVD that's bent Burned or stamped that's for a different format other than NTSC 'American broadcast standard'then I'm sorry to inform you it won't work in this player. There are Multi-standard DVD players out there. Not cheep but are available. Try typeing in DVD multistandard in your favorite search engine on your PC and see what pops up.
