Question about Emerson MBOX700 Portable Headrest Monitor with DVD Player Car Video Player

Open Question

No wiring harness for my headrest monitors. Product not listed.

My wife and I recently purchased 2 Invision Revolution headrest monitors off of ebay. The units are supposed to work properly or so it was described as such. The monitors came without the wiring harness.Which I knew wasn't being sold with the monitors. I however did not know that these monitors have to use their own wiring harness in order to work. I would like to know if it is possible to make a simple wiring harness for these monitors with item that can be purchased at an electronics store. I spoke with the people at Invision and the man said that these wiring harnesses were made with a patented design so that not just anyone can install. Oh yeah the wiring harness was priced at $400.00-500.00 US. In my opinion thats alot of extra expense for monitors that I am not even for sure work properly. I guess that if there is a simple way to test these monitors for functionality I could more easily justify the expense. But if a cheaper way is out there I would love to know about it.These monitors came from a Hummer H3 2005 and if this problem is solved and everything works out they will be placed inside 2007 Hummer H3.

SOURCE: same problem as Johnston

What you may need to do is determine if the motor is even spinning the disk. If not check the motor circuitry. You will need a schematic and voltmeter. Onc you have these items get in contact with me and we can start working on thie issue.

SOURCE: NTSC to PAL - Possible to change on TV?

While NTSC PAL and SECAM have some commons they cannot be easily converted to a reasonable picture without commercially expensive electronics ( $45,000,00) anything less would be almost not effective to make any picture viewable. the lines on PAL are greater in number than those on NTSC there is no way to add these lines without very sophiosticated technology.

Cheaper and less hassles to buy a new unit.

SOURCE: InVision Revolution series car DVD need to unlock region codes

region codes are only available from the internet by bright people who have figured out how to "Hack" into the software of the device and they call this a "Region Hack", as of this date there are no unlock codes avail for this unit, most of the codes are for mainstream home units and not the car mounted DVD systems. The manufacturer will not provide software updates, the legal status of region hacking is under litigation to determine whether it is copywrite infringement, what this means that soon it will be illegal..

Invision headrest DVD player model SHMD-0701-BX had the power button pushed in by my 2 year old. Is there any way to remove the player to repair the button without replacing the DVD player. A new player...


Yep, its pretty easy, lower the screen down, your find 4 phillips screws, unscrew them, them the dvd will separate from the headrest. be careful not to tug on the wires too tight, push the button on the connectors to free them from the circuit board, label the white one goes on the left and red connector goes on the right. now you have the dvd free and can remove the screws on the back to free the cover on the front, the button should be stuck between there. have fun

I got dual (forj) headrests the sound works on the one that has the dvd in it but not the one that does not, the rca jacks are hooked up to it, it has speakers in it, does it even have sound?


The monitor only headrest does not have audio handling circuitry in it. the wire harness for that side is the one with the red and black wire, and the two video inputs, not the harness with the red and black wire and the three RCA jacks. It will function on the wrong harness, but it is not the correct one.

The DVD headrest has two harnesses. One of them is for power and output, the other is for input only from another source. The harness with the red and black wire has the three RCA outputs... the video lead goes to the other headrest, and the audio can be fed to an aux input on a stereo or amplifier. The input harness is designed to be Video 2 input from either a gaming system (a Game Cube is a nice option), or another DVD or video source (hand held video device such as iPod or Smart Phone like a HTC Touch Pro 2).

As for why you have NO sound, press the FMTX button repeatedly till the screen displays no FM transmitting frequency. Then you should be able to turn up the volume on the DVD player headrest only.

To get sound out of the stereo, either run the audio output from the headrest to the aux input on your stereo, or cycle the FM transmit options using the FMTX button on the DVD player unit to a station you can tune to on your car's FM radio.

Connecting headrest monitors to Kenwood DDX-6019


Youll have to run sets of cables from your head unit to the seats, youll prob only need video, power, and ground if the sound will come from your speakers. For the same display on either monitor run to first position then link the 2 monitors.

What is a good lock radio to get these days? I got this thing a couple of days ago to replace an older model with pretty much the same features auto set, dual alarms, that had started to randomly reset the time zones - not good for making it to work... I noticed that it had been updated and the control redesigned, so there were some more bells and whistles. Big mistake - HUGE! The instructions were too small to read, so found the manual on-line, enlarged it to 200%, which I could then see, but it wasn't written in any kind of logical order. Altogether completely and unnecessarily counter-intuitive and complicated. Took me HOURS to set up, and I'm no dummy. I have to go back to the instructions just to change the alarm or even change a radio station. Back it goes. So now I'm trying to find a suitable replacement - auto set and dual alarms are required, and it would be nice to have digital tuning instead of a dial. Don't want or need projection, a weather report, presets, a usb port, or an iPod charging station. There are some units out there that seemed ok, and were well-reviewed, but all the negative comments were about the directions, difficulty of set-up, multiple-function, unmarked buttons that needed to be pushed in particular combinations to get anything to work, and the complexity of changing settings. Sorry for the long rant, but I've been searching all day, and the 5 - 10 top-rated models all have this same issue! Any suggestions or solutions out there that don't cost $300+, or are only to be found used on ebay? Many thanks for your help! Marianne
