Question about Clarion VMA5894 5.8 in. Car Monitor

1 Answer

I need to find out what power sources I can use for my monitor

The manual for my clarion vma5894 is not very helpful.
It tells me how the wires are supposed to connect, but not where I'm supposed to find a power source.
I am trying to use this monitor to monitor what I am recording with my Canon XH A1 video camera.
Please help. I've searched the world for an answer.
Thanks!

    car or home? Neither...I need a power supply for the monitor to use with my video camera.

  • rwhalliday Dec 27, 2008

    how do I find it? Where can I buy it? What cables do I need to connect it? Isn't that as big as a car battery? Is this thing going to be portable? Car batteries are heavy.

    The power source MUST be portable and lightweight.
    I have to be able to carry it along side of my video camera while I record videos.
    Does this product exist that is less than a pound and smaller than 4inchx4inchx4inch ?

You need a 10-14VDC power supply. Is this in a car or home?

Antenna Power supply


First order of business is to check and see if the antenna is operating properly. If the wire in your harness is intended to power the antenna, connect 12 volts to this lead, and the antenna should go up (this needs to be done with the key in the ON or ACCY position). If the antenna does not go up, check the fusebox for a blown fuse. If the antenna does indeed go up, then you can scratch that off the list of possible problems and move on to the next step.

The Clarion should have a power input wire to keep the clock alive, and a power wire (normally of heavier guage) to actually power the radio. Make sure the radio operates when the key is in the ON or ACCY position. If the radio is operating, so far so good.

I'm kind of confused when you say there are two wires on the clarion... "power antenna turn-on" and "auto antenna". Are these both on the clarion? There should be a wire that constantly feeds the antenna with power (I would cal this one auto antenna). It should always be powered to 12 volts. The antenna should operate when the "antenna turn on" lead becomes 12 volts. Normally this ONLY happens when the clarion RADIO is on (ie: if you're listening to a CD, the antenna probably won't get activated).

After checking all this, if you're still having problems and if you haven't already done so, grab a DC volt meter and verify that the clarion power antenna turn on lead goes to 12 volts when you turn on the radio. If it does not, then there is an internal problem within the radio. If this lead IS going to 12 volts when it is supposed to and the antenna still isn't working, then my guess is that the antenna is malfunctioning.

Let me know what you find out... I'll keep looking at stuff from this end. Good luck.
