Question about Panasonic CQ-VX100U Car DVD Player

3 Answers

Problems opening my indash panasonic cqvx100u.

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...

Forgot my password cant get into screen. model xdvd8181

Look for the fuse box under your dash, (its some times installed under your steering wheel.) if its not there look under your hood inside your engine. somewhere there should be a fuse box. now... once you find it on the cap, lid, or door that covers the fuse box look for the fuse that says "stereo" or "radio" its usually a 15amp fuse. (most cars).... pull that fuse and turn the car ON and make sure that was the fuse for the stereo. (in this case the XDVD8181) it should not be ON... (the car should be ON and the indash should be OFF) leave the fuse OFF for 6 minutes that should be enough time for the indash to reset. once you have done that replace your fuse and turn your car back on, your indash should be back on and your screen, you should have the ENTER CODE screen up. Now the default code is 0000. if you for some reason forgot your code OR your code is not working, Call this number- 1-866-382-5476 they should help you from there.
your welcome... ALex UTa

Take a flashlight and hold it up to the screen..if you can see movement then it's a lamp problem, if not then your cable from the screen to the board could be loose or broken..

I dont know if there is a way to reset it... Look up the manual for the CQVX100U on the internet, and see if there is a procedure... If not, contact Panasonic customer service 1-800-211-7262

Panasonic dvd deck bypass
For the manual.
An authorized dealer is required by service agreement to install this wire to the parking brake which creates a ground when applied. The shadetree installer, however can hook to ground anywhere on the vehicle. I would recommend to put it on a hidden switch,as it is illegal to have a video in view of the driver.... and you can turn it off quickly if/when pulled over!
