Re: Kenwood DDX6019 no screen function

Grounding the wire out is probably not good enough unless this is an old model. The newer units require the parking brake lead from the head unit to be wired into a toggle switch. Take the lead wire it to one of the switch terminals, then wire the other terminal to the head unit ground wire. To make it work, simply toggle the switch twice-one up then down again. This imitates the parking brake being set. This is a dopey but effective illustration:
This should get your screen working without the parking brake on.

A- check your disk quality
b- check your radios dvd zone codes( yes there are more than one type of dvd) these will be listed in your manual as to the codes it accepts
c- if neither of these solutions work you have a broke unit

There is no video on my kenwood ddx8017, why? Do i have to bypass the parking break wire? which one is it, the solid green, or red with black, or pink?

If you want to watch videos on your unit it is necessary to bypass the parking brake wire from the Kenwood unit. The parking brake wire is light green and the best possible way to bypass the unit is by installing a toggle switch. The toggle switch should be a two wire device. Connect one wire to ground and the other wire to the parking brake wire from the unit. This will allow you to switch the supply on the wire to ground when needed.
Also, in some older Kenwood units you could just as easily connect the parking brake wire to ground and be done with it but, it does not always work.

How can I watch dvd on my kenwood radio while I drive

you have to bypass the parking brake safety switch. Basically, right now it is wired to the ground on your parking brake. Figure out where it is by following the wire from the head unit. Disconnect it, and connect the parking brake wire to the ground for the radio itself.

Putting kenwood kvt 617 dvd in rear of surburan how can i bypass parking brake so movies can play while driving

On bypasses you can either hook the parking brake wire straight to ground, if that does not work you can install a toggle switch between the parking brake wire and ground so you can mimic the parking brake on off.

You might have your brown (mute) wire shorting out (grounding itself) near your brake pedal. Locate the brown wire from the rear and make sure that it completely taped making sure that it does not touch anything metal.
