In Car DVD Player 7

Comment by n300zx, posted on Nov 05, 2008Unithas been removed from the car for several days, checked for visual signs of damaged components, and replaced in vehicle. No sign of screen coming to life when plugged into wiring and switched on, however Automatic Radio Antenna extends when Power button is activated.
Any more ideas?

    Further trial and error testing reveals that the Radio,DVD,CD,and possibly GPS touch screen buttons and sound are all functioning, but not visible on black screen. This would seem to indicate that there is some malfunction of the video output.
    Ideas please.

Well the radio is really functioning based on what you are saying. there was a comment post by world vet in the premiums that you opened up. i saw and he has a point. the display could have been damaged by voltage surge. but you did not jumped start it right?.. it could happen during jump starting or starting with a big electric charger. if there would, be non sense response from some of the experts here, might as well have it repair or if the repair is so much as to buy a new one, then i suggest this is a lesson learned to turne off all electronics before jumps starting or pushing the car to start.

tnx 4 using fixya,

    that could be true. but the video cables are not external right? is internal with the radio. so it seems. either that connection had the problem (the internal connection of video) or the display itself was fried due to the voltage fluctuation that happen when it was started by pushing it. could have been rev too high once it started. that would be our instinct.

    tnx again,

    hi n300,

    i know i was not able to fix your problem but ratings are much important to us as answering your questions, now a TFT would give me a minus 0.4 and a Helpful would just be a minus 0.1.

    can i ask for a favor and the rating would just be a Helpful rather than a TFT, just for ratings sake.

    tnx in advance,


  • francis rivero Nov 06, 2008

    tnx n300 for a helpful rating.

Eurovox car stereo sudden power out

If it asked for the pin code, it had spent a while without any power feed to it. Slide it out to get to the wires behind it. Check the power wires and any fuse connections to it (usually red wires) by wiggling them and see if it comes on briefly, (it will ask for code again). Wires may be damaged, pinched or corroded. To see if its wires in car or the stereo, take the stereo out of car and connect to a car battery on a table to see if its fine (it will ask for code).

Will not play dvd's. just says disc loading. is it bad and needs to be replaced or can it be fixed easily?

First of all, you have to make sure that the DVD disc you are trying to play is not bad scratched or damaged.
In most cases, the disc could have some internal damage and this could hinder the player from loading it.
Also, if you can try different discs on the player to see if it does the same thing to all of them, if it does, then you can confirm that the player is having issues.
It is not advisable for an inexperienced person to open and tamper a Class C laser device.
This is a device of such caliber.
It is best advised you send it to an expert for repairs and it should not cost much as it may just require a change of lens.
Hope this was helpful? Please comment for more information and thank you for using fixya.

Mobile 7-inch tv monitor with dvd player has no

couple different scenarios here...first, the previous owner may have had the dpeakers amplified and removed the amplifier before selling the car, or he may have even removed the speakers themselves. ive seen this done alot with aftermarket equipment. check behind the stereo to be sure that the speaker wires are connected to the cars wiring. also peek in the door panels to make sure the previous owner left you with some speakers. after your sure theyre all connected properly check for sound. if nothing, then you have a problem with the unit.

HEADREST dvd player honda odyssey 04 exl

Do the headrests detach?? If they do, you can buy the pair of 7" headrest DVD/Monitors all-in-one from Farenheight (made by Jensen). I have used these several times. Not only do the headrests match,but the product lasts too! The best part is that they are about 1/2 the price of many others.

How do i bypass the emergency brake wire on a dual xdvd700

Its illegal to do but i have done it! You have to connect the brake wire to either the pos or neg wire! You need to find out which one it is thou, so attatch it to the negative first so you dont cause any damage if it doesnt work then connect it to the pos wire and it should work a treat for ya! I stress connect to neg first!!!!!!!!!!
