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,

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 email@example.com
check the leads to your monitor. there could be loss of video input. However if there is no display indication then there is a failure of the video processing / video drive/ display drive of your monitor.
Normally you will need to replace the full board bbut check out the power and look for any discrete failures hoping your get lucky.
I interfaced the SAVV LM-S6001 today. Here's what I found;
Looking straight on at the male 8 pin DIN connector here's how I'll describe it. There are 3 pins across the top row. From left to right I'll call them 8, 7, 6. There are 2 pins on the left side of the middle row, 5 leftmost and 4 adjacent to the center. Moving right, there is a gap and then pin 3 on the rightmost side of the middle row. There are two pins on the bottom row, pin 2 on left and pin 1 on right. Draw that on some paper.
8 7 6
o o o
5 o o o 3
Pin 1 is +12VDC
Pin 2 is center contact of both audio and video RCA jacks
Pin 3 is -12VDC
Pin 4 is outer RCA contact for Video
Pin 5 -n/c
Pin 6 -n/c
Pin 7 -n/c
Pin 8 is outer RCA contact for Audio
Now, I don't know what pin 7 does, but it is wired next to pin 4 suggesting a video application, Svideo is my best guess. I can only test for a composite video connection that I am using.
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.
