Lots of static when playing over the stereo speakers, and the screen seems loose
When we play a DVD and the sound is coming through the car stereo it sounds terrible. There is tons of static and interference with the sound. The audio through the wireless headphones is just fine. The tuner is set to play over the 87.7 fm frequency. Is there an antenna anywhere that I can adjust? How do I get it to sound better?
Also the screen seems loose, kind of wobbly. When you push it back up into the closed position it looks like the screen is starting to come off of the hinge system. Is this normal flex? or is it really loose and if so, how do I tighten it up?

87.7 is the standard Fm frequency these car dvd players comes with. Press the menu buttom and find the fm frequency, you can change it from 87.7 to 91.1 ( anywhere between those ) My case it works best on 89.1 frequency.

Sorry but what u have is called a fm modulator some are adjustable some not go to your local car audio shop to find out or take your headunit out and look behind it if so tune the fm mod to a different station one thats not being used there are three preset station on the fm mod but remember just because theres no station on that radio channel were u live dont mean there wont be one when u go into town thats the bad thing about fm mods best thing to do is get a indash cd dvd radio and as far as the lose screen just hand tighten the screws flip down the screen look up there should be 4 or 6 screws there just tighten them up a little this is normal

are the cds you are using copys or originals as sometimes the copy wont give you the stereo sound that you want but if you are getting stereo sound through the radio and all speakers are working there should be no reason why you dont get sound through all 4 speaker through the cd as they all go through the same channels and produce sound the same way as the radio the only problem i ever had with sound was that the copys wouldnt give me stereo sound but the only other problem could be is that the cd player in the unit is damaged or something come loose on the actuall cd unit in the player itself have you tried ajusting the loudness of each speaker and see if their is any sound at all if not and you are using originall cds then their should be no problem with the sound you could try turning the stereo sound off and have it on mono then see if you get any sound in the other speakers if not then it is fault with the unit itself this can be difficult to repair and expensive to get parts for how old is unit try playing round with the speaker volumes if this dont change anything and the mono and stereo sound dont change anything then it will need to be repaired so i would sugest to take this to repair shop as this would be difficult to repair hope this is some help to you ........................................
1. Usually the DVD player can play for years then you will get one that will play 6 months. 2. some times this is due to dust or dirt in the mechanism. 3. A can of compressed air sprayed through the DVD drive will sometime clear this issue. 4. the static sounds also can come from a dirty DVD disk. 5.Wash the DVD disk with a mild hand soap with warm water not hot then dry with a cotton cloth or bath towel. 6. check the sound cable to the mother board it may be loose also , this can cause static sound. 7. This may take a long time but if you have done a "de-fragmentation" of the hard drive this could be an issue also.
If it's a Rosen dvd player the dvd will need to be put in the unit itself & not the unit in the dashboard! The dvd player mounted in the head ligning is a seperate unit from the stereo system fitted in your dashboard!
Sounds to me like you are putting a dvd into the dashboard stereo system which will play any audio through the car speakers...
Put a dvd into the Rosen unit itself & i am sure you will get a picture on the drop down screen! Remember that as far as i know all Rosen dvd players transmit the sound from the dvd to infra red headphones that should be included! Remember to check the batteries if you still can't hear any sound as they run down quick if the headphones are left on!
turn off the dual audio..by pushing the 3 and 5 button on the radio unitwhere the small headphone light on the radio is off and you should get dvd sound on the radio....that puts it in single mode not dual mode..also play with the mode button on the back of the center console ...
first check the settings on the audio menu of the dvd player. make sur it is set to 5.1 (if available) otherwise set it to stereo and your system should decode it.
assuming the second step is okay : as other dvd you play seem to work) it still may be that your unit is decoding stereo inputs just fine and 5.1 is not working properly....
so if adjusting audio settings in dvd play back menu dont work,
check that the cables to the satellite speakers are connected correctly and all plugged in soundly ( voice is high frequency,- coming from satellites - the garbled noises you hear are the base ( low freq) elements of voice which are coming from the bass box ( that the X.1 part of 5.1) and so that is obviously working. ,
are you sure you have plugged in the speakers properly? maybe u inserted the cable in the wrong port or u just didnt insert the cable property. A loose connection can cause static and obviously it wont play anything. Please check.
