Need to bypass din cable connection on a soundstorm 7 inch screen
I have a soundstorm ssv-7hr headrest screen, without the din cable to give me power and ground, and also the video input. The cable costs $40, I'd rather hardwire it if I can find out the right wires. the colors inside the cable are black, white, yellow, blue, and a bare copper strand, totaling 5 wires. any help would be greatly appreciated,

Those cables can go bad easily. If you have a meter and know how to use it, try to test continuity on each pin. If that isnt the answer, then either the input of second monitor is faulty, or output of main screen.
Not sure what connection method you have.. do you have USB driving the touch screen or all inclusive HDMI, or serial port... Anyhow, you need to check your drivers and remove and reinstall them. It is most likely a driver problem. Next check cabling if the touch screen is outside the video signal (non-HDMI modality).
If it had been working fine before, it means either the powerconnection to the player is not available anymore (loose powerplugs) or there might be internal damage to the player. This can occur when the polarity of the car-battery got reversed accidentally while repairing the car. Another thing might be the internal battery of the player is dead. This battery is used to store date / time and other data.
So, first check the Voltage of the car-battery. Second, check the power-connections at the back of the player. If you still can't locate the problem, you should check if your player is still under warranty. If not, and as a last thing, well, if you got some electronics knowledge and tools, open up the interior of the player and look for suspicious looking components, like broken fuses, blown capacitors, black spots at the PCB (*) etc.
(*) PCB is the green board inside the player, where all tiny electronic components are mounted.
first of all did you buy a video amp . when you install multi screens you need it to get a good signal .
what is the car you installed the tv in ......
sometimes you can get your alternator interfering with your video some people install a filter on the power side of the alternator to help the signal with the audio and video in the car. can try putting a filter also on the power source to the tv 20 or 30 amp inline filter migt solve you problem. where did you ground your screens did you use the same grounding spots or did you ground them at 2 different places.... cause you can have a noise ground or creat a ground loop by not grounding them all together .
here are some pics of inline power filters ans80 by pac and ns50 or the ones to use . try some of these solutions and see what happens and get back to me firstname.lastname@example.org
Let me guess, you have a pioneerr dvd headunit a video amplifier and 2 headrest correct.
Now connect from V/A in at the headunit to V/A out at the video amp. Connect V/A out put from #1 headrest to #1 V/A in put at the amp. And V/A out put from #2 headrest to #2 V/A in put at the amp.
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).
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.
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.
