Maybe you had the same problem as I did... the unit may have been dropped or mishandled during shipping or maybe during installation. If it is still under warranty, return it. If not, try this:

I took mine to a technician that went through the settings, found nothing wrong, except for the fact that it won't play video. What he did afterward was open the unit up and checked out inside. Apparently there was just some little plug that got loose and/or fell off inside. This probably happened during shipping or could have happened if someone dropped the unit I guess. Anyway he re-plugged the little plug inside and it worked fine. I'm still to pick it up and test it myself but this is what I was told today so just thought I'd share it with you guys. Maybe that's what you need to get done.

Please note that if your unit is under warranty (like mine WAS), this would pretty much void it.

I am about to install my boss bv8962 unit into my vehicle but I want the parking break safety feature bypassed. What do I do differently during installation so that my passengers will be able to watch tv...


Yes, you can bypass parking break feature by connecting the corresponding wire of BV8962 to ground, also you could add a 3 pin toggle switch to get a normal and bypass mode switch, this can be wired of this way, the common pin of toggle switch to your video unit, at the other pin, it could be connected the parking break wire (normal mode) and the remaining one to ground (bypass mode).

There is no video on my kenwood ddx8017, why? Do i have to bypass the parking break wire? which one is it, the solid green, or red with black, or pink?


If you want to watch videos on your unit it is necessary to bypass the parking brake wire from the Kenwood unit. The parking brake wire is light green and the best possible way to bypass the unit is by installing a toggle switch. The toggle switch should be a two wire device. Connect one wire to ground and the other wire to the parking brake wire from the unit. This will allow you to switch the supply on the wire to ground when needed.
Also, in some older Kenwood units you could just as easily connect the parking brake wire to ground and be done with it but, it does not always work.

I need to bypass brake for the jensens vm9311 so i can watch movies on drive


ok if you have the old firmware then all you need to do is ground the parking brake wire

if you have the new firmware(just bought the system) a toggle switch is involved:
1 - connect e-brake wire from dvd unit to the switch
2 - connect a ground wire from switch to the unit chassis(any good metal grounding surface will do)
3 - pop in a dvd, toggle the switch back and forth 2 or 3 times depending on what wire you placed where...and voilaa!! your dvd system should work in motion!!

Navigaiton bypass/hack for Jensen vm9512hd w nav101


buy a 3pin toggle switch
add a wire to the red wire (12v) in back of unit
do the same with the ground (black)
now install theses wires to the toggle switch (toggle switch has pictures of ground and positive pins)
install the brake wire to the pin that is empty on the toggle switch
power everything including the new installed switch and DVD should show
if not just switch the brake wire with the ground wire on the toggle switch
but the navigation should work with the unit while your driving...........this is the real trick to solve your problem
good luck
