No sound coming from dvd player in xc90

Hi, just bought a pre-owned xc90 and really like it, but one of the big selling features for us was the dvd player and head rest monitors. when trying it the first time we are able to see the picture fine but are unable to hear any sound. looked throught the stereo settings but wasn't able to figure it out. no head phones came with it. there is also no usuer manual. anyone know how to get sound to come through the regular stereo system?

Do you have a remote? There is a setting to put the audio on , for the rear speakers, but only works if you have a remote, you cannot access through the stereo. Wireless headphones can be brought anywhere, I have purchased several from best buy, they don't have to be Volvo ones. If you have the remote, it has to be pointed at the head units in the seats!

Why the inspection is needed for purchasing a certified pre-owned car?

It is not a compelsion that a buyer should do the inspection for a certified pre-owned car as the dealer has already processed all the certification prior selling it. If any buyer wants to do the inspection then he/she can do it fir their own satisfaction. If anything serious happens with the car then its the responsibiity of the dealer to check it and reolve it quickly.

Just purchased a 2006 Volvo XC90 /w/ DVD system in headrest and it did not come /w/ a manual or remote. When I press the power button it does not come on. Could someone tell me how to use this feature?

You can only operate the DVD player with the remote. We discovered this on a long car ride, when the remote was left in the garage.............................

Headset for 2006 Volvo XC90 DVD player

If the car is certified and the dvd player is factory the system is required to work to pass certification.

First, Look in the owners manual to make sure your doing it right.

Second, go back to the dealership and see your salesman, they should be happy to get it fixed for you.

Third, take it to the service department. The car is certified, so when the policy takes effect the service department will fix it for whatever the deductible is.

Fourth, Call Volvo customer relations and tell them about your issue.

Hope this helps.

CD player in a 2005 XC90 volvo

Sorry, It's not reparable. You have to change it the new one. This price is very high. If your car hasn't warranty, I suggest you, use a portable DVD-USB player with an FM trasmitter in your car. I know it isn't sounds good, but I had the same problem and I have changed the CD player to a new one (it was terrible prize, of course) and I never use CD and DVD since that time. I use mp3 -usb combo only and i haven't any problem. I hope this help.

Where can I get the remote control for Suzuki XL-7 DVD player

Had the same problem. My wife went to a car audio place and bought the wireless headphones, I think they were cheaper. And I just bought a universal remote from Radio Shack, its a Radio Shack brand little gray remote. It was 9.99. You have to use the "search for codes" option in the instructions. I can turn the tv on, off, stop, play, skip, all that stuff.
