Your laser eye might be dirty or tired(out of alignment). Buy a cleaning kit, if it does not help try have someone who knows how to re-align it.

Here's what you need to know: DVD
head units have one extra wire in their wiring harnesses, compared
to a standard CD head unit. On the Jensen, it's a peach-colored wire,
the activation wire for the DVD feature. During the installation, the
instructions call for this wire to be tapped into the emergency brake
indicator light wire. The reason is this:
The e-brake indicator light is what is called a "ground complete" circuit. That means that the bulb always has power applied, but when you pull the brake, that puts a ground to the wire and completes the circuit, allowing it to illuminate. The head unit sees this ground, and activates the DVD player.
In mine, I simply ran this wire to a ground (I used a screw near the fuse box), and I put a switch on the wire, so I could break the ground contact at will. Jensen calls for a procedure to activate DVD playback. In their instructions, they tell you to select DVD from the option menu, and when the "lawyer screen" comes up (the one warning you to park before you watch a movie), you release the e-brake for 3-5 seconds, and then reapply it. To simulate that with the switch I used, I leave the switch closed (activated), and select DVD. Then I flip the switch "off" for 3-5 seconds, and flip it back "on". This tricks the head unit into thinking I put the e-brake off for a few seconds and then put it back on, and the movie will start. Then I can drive away.
Basically, ground the wire that is used for DVD activation, and put a switch inline on it. Then you can break and reapply the ground in the manner of the e-brake cycle I mentioned earlier.

you have the amp remote wire hooked to the power antenna lead instead of the amp wire on the deck otherwise just hook it to a switched +12 volt source. You sure you got a DVD changer instead of just a cd changer
