Valor IDA 700w won't play movies

I have purchased a Valor IDA 700w in dash dvd player from a friend and works great, but everytime I try to watch a movie, you can hear the sound but the screen displays you can not watch movie while the car is in drive. My friend I purchased it from says you can view it while in drive but there is a code that you input for it to play. Even when the car is off and I try to watch a dvd it displays the same thing. I'm just trying to find someone out there who may have the code to watch movies while car is in drive, park, or whatever.

Wont play dvd

When you say, "won't play DVD", do you mean you cant see the movie or, the DVD is playing at all. If you can't see the movie, more than likely your parking brake wire needs to be grounded.

I have a valor ida700w dvd cd car stereo in my truck and the radio works but the dvd cd player will not play. can you troubleshoot my problem please

FYI..... for any one with a Valor IDA-700w.
The dvd/cd drive assembly was poorly designed.
the clamp that secures disc as it rotates mounts
on one side with a plastic pivot,fine,but the other side
uses a longer metal arm that also has the clamp spring.
The spring exerts too much pressure on the arm and cracks
its plastic anchor.
I repaired mine with JB weld and it plays cds but will not
play dvds,just hunts and hunts or skips.
Oh well,radio plays great-by the way, an undocumented feature
of the unit is that it has a Zoran decoder chip for Dolby Digital
and DTS-too bad drive is inferior.
DTS cd discs play great when it works!
