Question about Pyle PLDINTV7 Car DVD Player

1 Answer

NO VIDEO Everything works with this system except when I insert a DVD you can hear the sound but no picture. You can see setup on the screen (brightness, etc.) but no video. You can hook up an external dvd player and it works as well as the built in tv tuner. But when using the dvd player it plays sound but no picture. Also, am I supposed to see a picture or background when not playing a movie or just accessing the setup on the system? Because I don't see that either. I hope anyone here can help me. Thanks.

It sounds like the video signal is being routed to a different out put. Search the menu for "Source" kinds of settings. Often you will have Vid 1 and 2 and maybe HDMI 1 &2 etc. Try what looks right and keep trying all combinations (usually less than 6). Take your time, it often takes them numerous seconds to recognize the signal. The fact you see the settings means the Video is working if it just had the signal. Also, if there is any wiring involved, check the cables and maybe swap them for known good ones if possible.

DVD head units have one extra wire in their wiring harnesses, compared to a standard CD head unit. On mine, it's a peach-colored wire, and is the activation wire for the DVD feature. During the installation, the instructions call for this wire to be tapped into the emergency brake indicator light wire. The reason is this:

The e-brake indicator light is what is called a "ground complete" circuit. That means that the bulb always has power applied, but when you pull the brake, that puts a ground to the wire and completes the circuit, allowing it to illuminate. The head unit sees this ground, and activates the DVD player.

In my Jensen unit, I simply ran this wire to a ground (I used a screw near the fuse box), and I put a switch on the wire, so I could break the ground contact at will. Jensen calls for a procedure to activate DVD playback. In their instructions, they tell you to select DVD from the option menu, and when the "lawyer screen" comes up (the one warning you to park before you watch a movie), you release the e-brake for 3-5 seconds, and then reapply it. To simulate that with the switch I used, I leave the switch closed (activated), and select DVD. Then I flip the switch "off" for 3-5 seconds, and flip it back "on". This tricks the head unit into thinking I put the e-brake off for a few seconds and then put it back on, and the movie will start. Then I can drive away.

Basically, ground the wire that is used for DVD activation, and put a switch inline on it. Then you can break and reapply the ground in whatever manner is required by the manufacturer of your head unit. If there is no off/on sequence with yours, as there is with mine, simply ground the wire to a screw inside the dashboard and you're done.

If everything is hooked up correctly, you may need to wire harness. It could be a bad capacitor in the audio outputs. Easy to try wire harness first. Sometimes turning off and back on again works.

I have a cable controller connected to a Bose sound system and a Haier 32 " flat screen TV. Everything works great until I want to view a DVD, then all I can hear is cable audio with the DVD video. How do...


That sounds like a miss-wired setup. I would unplug the wires and re-wire it making sure the right wires are in the right holes. Sounds to me that the DVD audio is not going to the bose and only the TV audio is.

Hello
You haven't given the exact model number ot your LG DVD, so I can only give you a general solution to this problem.
Get into its meny, surf through, come to SYSTEM adjust window, change the system. If a NTSC system recorded disc played with PAL system adjustment with DVD, there will be only black/white pciture, and vice versa.
Adjust it to the color system thathave been adopted your country. this must solve the problem. OK.

DVD picture is black and white


Sounds like you are either trying to play an NTSC (US or Asian) DVD on a PAL (European) TV.

Go into the DVD settings and look for picture, video or display options.

If the DVD is set to NTSC, then set to PAL.

No picture from dvd, but sound


What type of output are you using? Try using the component video output on the DVD player. (that's the one with three colors) This worked for me when the composit and s-video outputs stoped working.
