Is the car in park? There is a manual override that must be done, as it is against the law to have video playing in the driver's view.
Put car in park and apply parking brake. Retry.

Just curious if the speed wire and reverse wire need to be hooked up before the dvd player will work. it is avn2454 for model or do you have any tricks that i can do if i cant find these wires in vehicle

Not 100% sure what you're asking. If you're talking about the wire that doesn't let you watch videos unless you're parked, just snip the end off, connect a ring terminal to it, and screw it down to some metal, just like with the ground cable.

Ddx512 Kenwood Parking off problem

Indash DVD units are programmed not to allow DVD's to play while the car is in motion. The unit only allows DVD viewing when the car is parked and the parking brake activated.

To get around this, you simply splice the parking break wire from the radio to the -NEG wire of the radio.

If this doesnt help let me know.

To change the region code on the UV8 you must have a dvd playing and 1. with the remote press setup 2. then enter 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. This gives you access to firmware menu. 3. arrow down to tools "system settings" (you should be able to use the touchscreen) enter on region a menu opens and select "0" to make it region free. You can also go down to the brake bypass menu here to to put in "off" mode so you can see movies while driving.

Region free code for power acoustik ptid-5300

Try the following which i managed to get from POWER ACOUSTIK technical support:

Multi-region for PTID4006T, 406T, 4005, 405, 8006T, 8004, 4003, 5000, 5800, 5300, 530.

1. Turn the unit on and insert a DVD disc. The unit will display LOADING.

2. While the DVD player is LOADING press the following keys:
SET-UP, then press 0, 0, 0, 0 key (0 four times), then ARROW DOWN key (to change the zone to region all 0), then BAND/ENTER key and SET-UP

3. To finish the procedure, push the EJECT key. The disc will eject... Wait and the DVD disc will re-load and play.

pull the e-brake handle up 1 notch - not enough to engage the brake but enough to engage the switch to allow the video to play...

Cd dvd wont play

Many of the older DVD and CD players will not play disks recorded on a computer. This has to do mainly with the laser optical response.

There were several manufactures that manufactured their laser unit with a built in filter that would not allow their player to read non pressed CD disks (disks burned with a home computer).

When buring DVD's or CD's, use the slowest possible speed for the burn to have the highest readablity and least data errors possible for the medium.
