Question about Dual XDVD8181 Car Video Player
I have not actually hooked the whole head unit up to my vehicle's factory radio wires inside the dash. like i stated in my question i was just trying to see if the thing would power on by touching the power wires from the head unit as well as the ground wire to the positive and negative side of my car bettery. i have heard by doing that the player should power on or light up or give me some notification of the unit actually receiving power, but when i did that nothing happened!
When you disconnect your battery and then reconnect it again, it disables the radio. This is an anti-theft protection for your car radio.
The enable your radio the activation code is in your vehicle owner's manual. If you do not have this code you need to go to your vehicle manufacturer's service centre and get them to enter this code for you.

These methods have worked on a variety of Dual DVD systems (mainly XDVD8181, also XDVD710), unsuprisingly, since Dual stated to me that most installations have the same codes.
WARNING! It is usually ILLEGAL and most of all UNSAFE to drive while watching video. I only watch video while parked, and I suggest you do the same. This is for demonstration purposes only, if you use these codes, you do so at your own risk.
STEP ONE. Ground the E-Brake wire.
No matter which method you use, you must ground the brake detection wire. I suggest you tap it into the ground wire on your wiring harness (ensures a good ground).
1. FACTORY RESET METHOD (Temporary)
(This isn't the most effective, but it is the easiest to try, so it's worth a shot since it apparently works on some units.)

your dual xdvd710 is having a power problem. The power board is defective that's why the dual xdvd710 is not powering on. One way or the other, the power board has been affected.
A component on the power board like capacitor may have been defective.
Detach the dual xdvd710 from the truck, get a screw driver, disassemble the dual xdvd710. Use a meter to read the power board of the dual xdvd710, in other to detect the bad component. Make necessary replacement and the dual xdvd710 should power on again.
Purchase the replacement online or at any electronics accessories store within your vicinity.
