Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be a manual available anywhere online. However, it turns out the unit was distributed by "GrandView Tech Electronics" who seem to support nothing but are a subsidiary of Shenzhen Soling, who have a website supporting most of their units; The apparently closest model they have online is the DVD-688; (Only if the Fixya picture is accurate.) If that is the right model or not, you need to contact them for a manual on the first link or use their online help, although I think direct contact would be more sucessful. Hope this helps, I will keep looking and maybe someone out there has a manual they will scan, but Soling are the primary manufacturers so they should be able to help. :)

    The next thing you could try is to look on ebay for someone claiming to sell one with a manual, contact them and ask them to answer your question from the manual "to verify that they have the right one". You may get lucky without any expense.

    Good luck

    If you need help at any time to identify a quality, supported product to purchase, please ask - we get a good idea of which products are good or not from other users problem postings and from searching around to solve them.

    Real long shot, but are you able to access the on-screen menus - if so, please let me know what you get - I may be able to figure it out. Usually it would be a sub-menu of the "settings" menu, and usually would require a code to be input. parental control codes are usually four numbers - by default usually set to 0000 or 1234 although any code could have been entered by whoever set the control level. Be wary about entering a third code if there are any warning messages, but usually with in car dvd's this is not a problem.

    Hope you get lucky - if you can get the menus up and need help then please post a photo(ideally) or describe them - they may possibly be a copy of the software from an older more mainstream unit.

    Good luck, hope this helps :)

    Ps - if you haven't tried already, try disconnecting the unit from power for at least an hour or two (easiest way is to disconnect the car battery completely). It just possibly may revert to factory default settings, although usually this would be an option in the menus instead.

My grandfather cant remember the code for parental controls. it is stuck on pg. can it be reset with out the code

Forgotten the parental control password? there is a way around this. According to the user manual (page 34) for this particular model:

Enter "788444" even if 4 digits "----" appears, then press [ENT]
to clear the current password.
Enter a new password and set the parental lock level again if required.

Note: DVD video discs may or may not respond to the parental lock
settings. Make sure this function works with your DVD video

You need the original unit's remote to do this. It cannot be done without it.

There is a .pdf of the user manual online.

(It is free to download for personal reference in case you have lost your original copy.)

I hope this helps a tad.

How to reset the parental control code - I forgot the code and want to reset with a new one

This is what I found in the instruction manual on this and I posted it here for you. Try using 3355 for the code and everything else listed here. If that doesn't work, try the very last tip which tells you how to do a factory reset and repeat the first step using the 3355 as the code.

Here's the instructions from manual:

Parental Control
Parental Control allows you to block certain channels or programs so children cannot view
programs that are not age appropriate.
To enter the Parental Control menu, you need an
access code. The first time you enter, use access
code 3355. See "Setting an Access Code" on
page 33 for information on creating a new access
You can set the following options to block
• Channel Lock — Blocks selected channels
• Movie Rating — Blocks movies based on their rating (G, PG, PG-13, R, NC-17, and X)
• TV Ratings — Blocks TV shows based on their rating
• Block Options — Turns on or off all your parental control settings
NOTE: You can use Clear All to unblock the channels and programs that you have set.
NOTE: If the Block Control in the Parental Control menu is enabled, all the sub screens in POP (POP1,
POP3 and POP12) mode will be blank

Setting an Access Code m
After you enter the Parental Control menu for the first time, you can set your own four-digit access
code. If for any reason you lose or forget your access code, you can use the default code.
1 In the Parental Control menu, select Change Code.
2 Using the number pad on the remote control, enter a new access code.
3 Select Exit.

Reset the original factory defaults. Press Menu on the remote
control, select Setup, and then select Factory Reset

Parent Lock Levels:

3: PG 7 : NC _17
4: PG_13 8: Adult

It also says that it takes 3-5 seconds to reset the unit to the factory default. I hope this helps! Karen
