Question about Jensen Vm9224 Car Video Player

Open Question

How do i access the hidden menu on the Jensen VM9224 model that comes WITHOUT a remote?

I am aware that i can just ground the parking brake wire but the harness for that is currently damaged and not connected so all i can do now is just listen to music.

SOURCE: JENSEN VM9311TS DO I HAVE TO HOOK THE BRAKE WIRE UP AT ALL?

There isn't any code that I know of. Most DVD head units have one extra wire in their wiring harnesses, compared to a standard CD head unit. On mine, it's a peach-colored wire, and is the activation wire for the DVD feature. During the installation, the instructions call for this wire to be tapped into the emergency brake indicator light wire. The reason is this:

The e-brake indicator light is what is called a "ground complete" circuit. That means that the bulb always has power applied, but when you pull the brake, that puts a ground to the wire and completes the circuit, allowing it to illuminate. The head unit sees this ground, and activates the DVD player.

In my Jensen unit, I simply ran this wire to a ground (I used a screw near the fuse box), and I put a switch on the wire, so I could break the ground contact at will. Jensen calls for a procedure to activate DVD playback. In their instructions, they tell you to select DVD from the option menu, and when the "lawyer screen" comes up (the one warning you to park before you watch a movie), you release the e-brake for 3-5 seconds, and then reapply it. To simulate that with the switch I used, I leave the switch closed (activated), and select DVD. Then I flip the switch "off" for 3-5 seconds, and flip it back "on". This tricks the head unit into thinking I put the e-brake off for a few seconds and then put it back on, and the movie will start. Then I can drive away.

Basically, ground the wire that is used for DVD activation, and put a switch inline on it. Then you can break and reapply the ground in whatever manner is required by the manufacturer of your head unit. If there is no off/on sequence with yours, as there is with mine, simply ground the wire to a screw inside the dashboard and you're done.

This question is still unanswered to this day, Does anyone know for POSITIVE how to cure the parking brake issue on the Jensen VM9224BT?


The Pink wire is negatively switched wire in the green plug, this should be cut and it should function all the time it's on.
So when you put the brake on it grounds that wire and shuts the screen off (safety)
If that doesn't work it will be switched by applied 12v.

I haven't looked at what other solutions say, that's just what I see from the diagram

http://audiovox2.info/docs/common/VM9224BT/VM9224BT_IM.pdf

any problems get back to me and i'll try to help out.

My jensen vm9324 plays dvds but the monitor does not come on, it has the warning screen


Your "Emergency Parking" wire is disconnected. You need to connect it to your parking brake, or you can also connect it to Parking switch if you have automatic transmission. You can play video only when parked

There is a workaround though...

Warning: In most states in US law bill bans drivers from operating televisions and video screens in their line of vision while the vehicle is moving.

Due to the law you can use this workaround at your own risk:

1. You can just ground the parking brake wire to your radio, and you are done.

OR

2. You can adjust factory settings
  • Go to""Setup", and then to "Screen" menu
  • with your remote press 543210, this will show a hidden menu
  • now set the parking brake menu from "off" to "on".and exit the menu
  • NOTE: disconnecting the car battery will reset the code to default "off" state.

2. while in the setup menu, use the remote and press 5-4-3-2-1-0, this should access another service menu.

3. from there, you will see a brake override option.

Parking brake disable model jensen 9511ts


on the jensens, there is a way to disable the parking brake without having to put a switch on the parking brake wire. the catch is that you will need the remote control to get into the service menu. follow these steps


1.turn the radio on and select the setup menu.

2. while in the setup menu, use the remote and press 5-4-3-2-1-0, this should access another service menu.

3. from there, you will see a brake override option.

4. and your done.. hope this helps

if for any reason yours doesnt offer this option. you can always put a switch on the ebrake wire of the screen.

1. use a 2 wire toggle and wire one side the ground and the other to the parking brake wire on the jensen. then do the pattern on the switch instead of using your ebrake.
