SOURCE: Kenwood KVT-817DVD screen goes black, have to reset constantly

Hello johnnychi925,

The unit appears to have been installed on the 12vdc connection that is on the same circuit as the the vehicle's ignition switch. This means that when the ignition is turned there is a rapid drop in voltage which cause the problem with your device. You need to connect the device to a 12vdc circuit that comes straight from the battery and does not connect to the ignition circuit. Now for another possible cause if the 12vdc you are connected to is from the battery and not the ignition connection. The battery could be dropping below 12vdc during the starting of your vehicle. This could be the sign of a malfunctioning battery, or a problem with the car's electrical system.

To test out if the battery ids dropping below 12vdc I would suggest connecting a voltmeter to the - and + of the battery and starting the car. The voltage should drop but not below 12vdc.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

SOURCE: helo how to bybass alpine ivaw505 car dvd

remember it is illegal and dangerous to drive with video on in front seat.
Not sure what model, but most likely this will work. Radio Shack2_bing.gif will have parts.

If its for an Alpine there are 2 switches needed.
1. A toggle to simulate e brake
2. A momentary (push button-PB)simulate the regular brake.

Both switches should go to ground, if I recall. If not put 12 volts on PB switch.
Procedure is as follow press regular brake(PB) and hold. Turn toggle on off and on again, release PB

Let me know if you have more questions.

My ripspeed incar dvd player has got no picture but has got the sound what can i do to make this work

First thing comes to mind is a possible update to the system. Have you had it for a while now? If so, you should go to the computer and go the maker of the unit. Check under software updates or downloads to see if there has been a remedy or fix that the maker has published, if so...then do as it says to do and see if this resolves the problem before you get into the actual technicals of the unit. It may need nothing more. I hope this helps.

DVD won't place discs

Did that just begin out of nowhere? IS the Dvd spinning, if you listen closely and the player is making noise as well? That would be the lens trying to get a read on it but if it's scratched (I'm sure you tried others) sometimes the lens just go bad out of nowhere...Mu original 500 Sony PS1 in 1998 lost its lens about 3 months in...I can't think of anything else right this moment....I hope you fix it...
