What does the green/white wire connect to on my jensen vm9312hd? Says it is reverse +

Rear View Camera Input: The VM9313 features a composite video input and a green/white wire lead attached to the harness for connection of a rear view camera. If a rear-view video camera is connected, the unit is on, and the TFT monitor is retracted inside the unit, the TFT monitor automatically moves into the viewing position and Camera modes is selected upon shifting into Reverse gear. When shifting into Drive gear, the TFT monitor is retracted back inside the unit. If the monitor is already in a viewing position and in display mode, the monitor automatically switches to Camera mode upon shifting into Reverse. When the reverse driving stops, the monitor returns to its original input display mode. You can choose for the monitor to display a Mirror mode image or a Normal mode image from the rear-view camera.

DP Video car system to play video

look at the install diagram(wiring codes) that came with the unit. if it has a wire that's designated for the parking brake (allowing you to only watch dvds while brake is engage) take that wire and instead of hooking it up to the parking brake, ground it or put an in-line switch between wire and ground so you can turn that function on and off. warning!!! watching while driving is illegal in most states

Help with install on clarion vrx935vd


The green would have to be connected to the handbrake indicator switch. Additionally, Clarion uses the industry standard wiring colors. Not every unit will have all of the listed wires

White = Left Front +
White/Black = Left Front –

Gray = Right Front +
Gray/Black = Right Front –

Green = Left Rear +
Green/Black = Left Rear-

Violet = Right Rear +
Violet/Black = Right Rear –

Yellow 14ga = Battery Main/Memory
Yellow 18ga = Battery CeNET Power/Memory
Red = Accessory (ignition on)
Black = Ground
Blue = Antenna Turn On +
Blue/White = Remote Turn On (amps) +
Orange/White = Dimmer
Brown = Phone Mute
Orange or Mint Green= Parking Brake Video Lockout
White/Red = CCD (camera) input instant on +

RCA Cables:
Gray = Front Output
Black = Rear Output
Purple = Non-Fade or Subwoofer Output

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Depending on the vehicles wiring itself, Alpine uses the below color coding for its wiring:
yellow – constant +12v such as the positive battery terminal
red – switched 12v such as the accessory terminal of the IGN switch
black – ground which could be the chassis/body ground of the vehicle or the negative terminal of the battery
blue/white - remote trigger for add-ons such as a power amplifier
blue – will activate a power antenna (if present)
white and white/black - front left speaker + & -
grey and grey/black - front right speaker + & -
green and green/black - rear left speaker + & -
purple and purple/black - rear right speaker + & -
orange/white - reverse wire
white/pink - monitor control lead
pink/black - audio interrupt from mobile/cell phones
yellow/blue - parking brake
yellow/black - foot brake

To bypass, the yellow/blue must be triggered negative/grounded. Alternately, it may be easier to use an adapter such as a Peripheral PTR7 ( In some regions, it is not allowed to operate this unit while vehicle is in motion.

Hope this be of help. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck, kind regards and drive safe.

Alpine cva 1005 picutre problems?

Make sure the VGA cable that goes to the brain is fully seated at both the display and the brain box. It's what controls the video signals.

Audio, but no video when dvd played

you must connect the handbrake lead to a negative supply, it's a safety feature to stop you watching it while the vehicle is moving

You have to bypass the Parking Safety feature. Here is the info I have found. I have not verified it myself for accuracy, so use at your own risk. AVIC-N2 lockout bypass: Underneath the MAIN unit (not the hideaway) is a small silver sticker, peel this back. There are two contacts with the label "R197". Drop a bit of solder between these to connect them. Also, you must ground the Parking Brake wire.

DNX7100 - new unit, screen won't power up

It only goes down half way. You have to gently push it down the rest of the way to expose the SD card slot.
