Won't play with lights on

Everything works except when we turn on the lights at night. The blue power light is on but not enough power to run the player I guess. I've seen a yellow wire needs to be hooked directly to battery. If that's what is needed, how do I do that?

Simply run a wire from the battery to the Yellow wire; that is what i did as i needed my own designated wire. On the oter hand the should already be a wire in the dashboard that is connected to the battery directly. All you need to do is find it and connect it (tip is my SUV it is the Black and Red wire that is conected directly to the battery, if it is the same for yours, just connect it) (tip 2 - you can use a one of those voltage testers to find the right wire; I forgot the name of it but that is what I used.

You probably have the ground wire hooked to the illumination wire for the car. it will act as a ground when the lights are turned off

Ouku single din no sound from rca cables


Sorry I did not use the video out RCA cables. My audio RCA cables worked fine... I ran them to my JBL amplifier through a conversion adapter. I did not run it direct to the amp.. I used Metra TYTO-01 03-08 Toyota Vehicles Harness for JBL SYS (Ebay item 160560648718) and it worked great.

Here is the wiring color coding that I found online:

The radio works and plays fine but if i put a dvd or cd in no volume the dvd does play though just no volume


Are you running the audio through an amplifier? If so, it sounds like you are using the blue wire (power antenna remote turn on) instead of the blue/white wire (amplifier remote turn on). The power antenna remote turn on turns off when leaving tuner mode, turning the amp off.

We have an adventadv35 dvd player. The screen turnes blue and doesn't play. What might be the problem and how do we fix it?


Most of auto dvd players are self contained much like your home dvd player with the exceptions that they run on 12volts and can transmit sound via a fm modulator , if your screen will not load or loads then turns blue try a different disc if it still occurs then there is a internal fault in the pods circuitry !

Everything works except the radio. It appears


If have factory amp you have to find the turn ou wre for the amp and hook it up to the amp turn on wire from the radio(bootleg way sound might cut in & out) or go to local sound shop and get a bypass for the amp

this happened to us also. If it's happening with the lights on, unhook the orange dimmer wire. our would workonly when the lights were off. the second we turned the light on the system would shut off. once we unhooked the orange wire it stopped doing it. we installed it in a 2003 mercury mountaineer.

Jensen head unit VM9311TS no sound from CD


Should wire HU's Power Const to Amp's Remote On. Instead you wired HU's Power Antenna to Amp's Remote On. So the stock amp got triggered only in radio mode.
