Question about Boss DVD9800B Car DVD Player

Boss DVD9800B no sound from speaker wires

I have a Boss DVD-9800B and I have no sound coming from the speaker wires. I can hook up an amp to the RCA's and have sound coming from them. Boss said it would be $640 to send it in and have it repaired, which is out of the question. I'm an electronic tech and could easily do any necessary repairs myself. Is there a detailed manual that it could just be a setting causing this, or any tips what to check internally? Thanks in advance for any help.

Have lenoxx ht 500 surround sound speakers & dvd but dvd is broken, need to purchase another dvd player but can't source lenoxx model, what other models can i connect surround sound to? or whe

If your surround sound receiver unit has rca audio inputs(red/white), you can hook up any brand of DVD player that has rca outputs. You would hook the yellow output from DVD player to yellow input on TV. Hook red/white output from DVD player to red/white input on surround receiver. Hope this helps.

How to connect an boss amplifier

Assuming you have an aftermarket radio. You must remove the radio so you can attache your RCA cables and the remote turn on. Run these down one side of the vehicle back to the amplifier. Run the power wire from the battery back down the other side of the vehicle to the amplifer (remember to place your fuse within 12 inches from the battery connection. You will need to find a grounding point. I recommend removing one of the side carpeted panels to do this. You will be able to find the frame. Make sure to sand around where you will be connecting the ground. Hook wires to the amp (RCA to correct color RCA wire inputs, Ground wire to (-), power wire to (+), and remote wire to it's screw terminal. The other end of the amplifier should have the speaker outputs for your subwoofer(s). Hope this helps. If you need more information visit
