Just had a flip down tv installed in my van. The guy who installed it said I need to use headphones to hear it.. I see speakers on the tv why would I need headphones?? Does this guy know what he is talking about??

Yup. If the headphones are driven by the TV, then turning down the TV turns down the headphones. Check to see if the TV has an audio output setting where you can select either the TV speakers or the headphone jack. What brand and model TV is it?
Some dealers installed a modulator for the radio; look under your driver's side dash to see if there is a small on/off toggle switch. If there is, flip it 'on', tune the radio to 89.1 and you should get audio.
If they haven't installed this, no problem. You can buy a modulator from most electronic stores that is used to play MP3 players through the car stereo; instead of an MP3 player, simply plug the cable into the headphone jack of your DVD player.
The most probable cause it broken solder connections on the headphone/ext speaker jacks. If you know someone who can solder fine detail parts...have them try. I dont know what a TV shop would charge but it DOES need fixing
Did you ever get this issue resolved??? Sorry - I don't have a solution, however I own the same player & van - and even the install guy I brought it to is having a heck of a time figuring it out with this van!
