If it plays cd's then put a laser cleaning disk in so it can clean the laser eye lens , its probably just dirty , if real dirty then it may need to be cleaned manually

    if you can play cd's and listen to the radio then its working , it just can't read the dvd's(maybe the format) but there should be no reason for it to be hooked to the parking brake!

    also if the cd lens cleaner don't work then it needs to be cleaned by hand , i have had to do this many of times for people who thought something else was wrong

    get a long q-tip to reach inside the player to get to the laser lens , otherwise it will have to be opened up to be cleaned

    and if that don't work then it may not be able to play them anymore , but i know its dirty because it can play cd's , when it gets more dirty it will not play the cd's for you either

You need to earth the wire thats supposed to connect to the handbrake (a green one i think ) then it should play all the time.

Clarion vrx815 monitor stuck

it seems that there might be something wrong with the carriage(track), eighter its damaged by bending or a notch breaking. I'd suggest you take it out an look at the track and see if its something that can be fixed.. its there ia a protrusion or obstruction it can be grounded off with a nail file, if the motor gear is off a bit you can try re-adjusting it.. other than that you will need to replace it.

I need to know what kind of movie format i have to transfer to ipod to see in the clarion vrx 785bt i mean i bought the cable cca 723 and I put in my ipod one clip movie but I cant see in my dvd...

MP4, MOV, H.264 are suitable formats for iPod. And u also need a video tool named Pavtube Video Converter to help u convert other movie files to a compatible format with iPod with good quality.
It works for me greatly.

Clarion vrx485vd wont play videos from iphone when connected

You need a composite video cable to the Clarion Video input. The usual ipod adapter is for audio only. If you have an AV ipod adapter and you still don't have video, the signal is not strong enough for the clarion to see it and you need a 12volt pre amp. you can find them online starting around 25. Hope this helps
