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,

Headrest monitor says no video. I have 10 inch power connect headrest monitor/DVD player. One plays DVD and the other is a monitor. The DVD player headrest plays movies but the monitor screen is blue and...

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 able to active after reset pldnv78i

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).

My SSL DD888 double din 7" car stereo/dvd player won't turn on. The fuses and wiring have all been checked and are fine. What could be wrong/is it fixable?

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.

I just bought the dual headrest from walmart and can not get the sound to work the passenger side. can anyone help me with this?or possibly tell me how to get the sound through the stereo.

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.

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.
