My Video does not work on my Unit

Well heres my Problem.. I returned my older model Jensen DVD player because the volume knob was all messed up. Well I got this new unit to my house.. And I had to rewire the entire thing, because the plugs where different on the back of each unit. Well My old unit had the pink wire coming off the back that suppose to hook up to the ebrake cable, well I just grounded it out instead so my friends could watch a movie while driving. Well I get this unit and i do the same thing,, dont work.. I then hook it up to a toggle switch and flick it back and forth,,It worked a couple times after messing with it for 20min... but overall still nothing. Then I hook it up to my Ebrake wire, which theres only 1 on my 1998 ford Ranger. Still nothing.. Is there a way to do this???? I really dont wanna have to rip it all out of the truck AGAIN.. And circuit city will cost me a armand a leg to fix it.. Is that wires suppose to be connected to a power or a ground??

Re: My Video does not work on my Unit

Actually you don't need to do all those stuff.... there's a softcode hack for this one. it would enable you to even play pirated DVDs as well.... ATTENTION TO ANYONE WITH A JENSEN VM9311,VM9411, VM9511TS and/or 9021TS YOU CAN BYPASS THE PARKING BRAKE SECURITY FEATURE FOR FREE!!!! WITHOUT PAYING FOR THOSE PULSE BOXES OR ANY ADDITIONAL HARDWARE!!!!! YES THE LITTLE BLACK BOXES WORK....BUT THEY'RE A SCAM CAUSE YOU CAN DO THIS FREE USING THE JENSEN FACTORY OVERRIDE CODE So if that isn't clear enough, let me further explain. The code is a permanent way of disabling the brake override on the jensen vm series multimedia head- units. There are two ways of doing this: Insert the DVD After the disc loads and plays you will see a blue screen telling you "it is unlawful to drive with a movie blah blah blah" 1)Activate the brake sequence and disable the blue screen using the hand brake, the switch method or anything else to give the unit its three pulses to disable that freakin blue screen. (What I did was I installed my radio entirely, then took the pink wire and touched for two seconds, removed for two seconds and then touched and held the negative pole of a mower battery laying on my passenger seat until the screen was no longer blue.) 2) Next, on the main remote press stop twice, then 1, 2, 6, 4. You will now see a hidden menu that says: Region Code Brake Override (I know you're drooling by now) Macrovision (Watch all the burned and pirated movies you want if this option is off) Loader Version Model Version 3) Using the right joystick on the unit, navigate to the options of your choice, click on them to toggle on, off or which region code you want. This is what you want: Region Code: 1 Brake Override ON Macrovision: OFF When your done, click SYS SETUP on the main remote TWICE to save the settings and bingo, your done!!! Hooray!!! You can now kill your whole family in the car while watching that adult movie while your driving..... The other way of doing this is by not engaging the parking brake sequence, thus you're inputting the code blindly. 1) Insert the DVD and you'll get the blue screen. (If you have more than one tv, the unit itself will have the blue screen but the additional tv's you have plugged in will NOT, they will show the dvd menu. Thus you will be able to see the hidden menu on the additional screens after inputting the code, but not on the main unit because of its blue screen.) 2) On the main remote, push stop twice and then 1, 2, 6, 4 3) Push the joystick on the unit SOUTH twice and then click it once. 4) Press SYS SETUP on the main remote twice to save your settings. It may take a few tries but you'll get it. This method can be done if you don't want to bother temporarily activating the brake sequence, but if you only have the unit and no additional tv's, its #$%^&* damn hardbecause you can't see the settings your changing. I tried to make this as clear as possible. If you have questions, private message me or post here. Best of Luck! By the way, this is for informational purposes only and I will not be responsible for anything bad/stupid/ignorant you do with your Jensen unit.

Jensen flip out head unit volume knob doesn't work . the remote works fine but just that one problem.. and i cant seem to get the DVD to play.! ( bought it used..)

it needs to be serviced by jensen or some other repair facility. there is nothing you will be able to do to get the knob to work. if it plays cd's and not dvd's thats also an issue that you can't fix by yourself. if it doesn't play cd's or dvd's then you can TRY to run an optical cleaner through it. its a cd player cleaner kit you can get at most electronics stores.

My car sterio comes on verry loud

i really hate that feature of that radio.. there is a volume set feature that allows you to set the volume to come at a certain level. you set it by
1. turning on the radio
2. adjusting the volume to the level you want
3. then pushing and holding the volume knob in until it beeps or for a few seconds.

then test it.. turn the volume up. then turn the until off, then back on and see if it went to where you set it.

hope this helps

How to set start up volume control

I read another post that says that if turn on the unit and set the volume where you want it at startup, and then press in the volume knob until you hear it beep, that locks in the current volume as the startup volume. I just read this, so I haven't tried it myself yet. Good luck!

you have to get a splitter so you can plug both RCA jacks into the sub output. Yes you can controll the sub volume from the unit. The center jack is another output for a center speaker.

try each of the four speakers independently. It's likely that ONE is blown (or has a wire shorted to ground) and is causing the unit to shut down.

Jensen vm9311 dvd indash volume is loud when i turn on car

Heres the best way to fix; Quote from manual "Programmable Turn-On Volume (Pg.12) This feature allows the user to select a turn-on colume setting regardless of the colume setting prior to turning the unit off. To program a specific volume level, push and hold the VOL/LOC/DV know (6) while the yellow volume bar is displayed on the screen. The unit will beep two times to confirm your turn-on volume setting." Ah i had the same problem. I turned to the manual and it worked for me :) Good Luck, Ern
