Question about Panasonic CQ-VX100U Car DVD Player
Hello, sometimes when I get into the car and try to open my screen it won't extend all the way out and goes back in the radio. Could this possibly be because of the weather in Detroit, Mi or a malfunctioning unit. Just bought the unit in November 2008. Please help... Also, where can I get a remote control for this unit?
Definitly can be due to extreme cold weather. That's why I leave mine open! Try this, when the heat in the car gets warm inside, does it perform better?
Checked Panasonic's website for a remote, but part was not listed. You can call them at National Parts Center at 800-833-9626
Hope that helped you.

Hi chevymetal. I would agree with LVT and say check to see if the unit preforms better with heat. Regardless, if you bought it in Nov 2008, take it back to get looked at while it is still under warrenty (1 Year)
Also, i am having a HELL of a time finding a remote for the unit. Just spoke with Panasonic Canada and they took a day to investigate with their answer being the manual was a mis print (as it talks about a remote control) and there is none avaliable for the unit.
I have tried a few panasonic remotes on it with no luck... I dont understand fully, because on the front of the unit you can see the IR housing. Id be curious to remove it and see if there is actually a sensor behind it, or if it is blank and they just used the same design from another model, but didnt add the IR option.
I am waiting for a call back from the US customer service regarding the remote, I will write back if I find anything...
