Question about Car Video Players

Astro in-car DVD player

We have just purchased a car with an Astro DVD player installed in it. It has no manual. When playing DVDs it works fine if the car is stationary however whilst moving it seems that the bumps on the road causes the player to freeze up and the DVD needs to be ejected to be able to work again. I have looked in the menu to see if I can enable an anti vibrate function but there seems to be no such thing. I hope there is a simple solution to this. Thanks

The steering remote control input is for a wired remote control, or a third-party interface that allows you to adapt vehicle steering wheel controls to operate your deck. Your problem is the parking sensor wire. This is supposed to be connected to your vehicle's parking brake switch. It detects when the brake is set, and will prevent a picture from showing when it's not set. The intent is to prevent you from watching movies while the vehicle is in motion. If you can get a good look at the parking brake mechanism, you should be able to see the brake switch. Usually there's a single wire coming from the switch, which is built onto the parking brake mechanism. Connect your parking sensor wire to the wire coming from this switch.

SOURCE: cant play dvd cd or even eject the disc that is already in .

actually it is due to faulty disk or dirty lens sometimes , when the lens is dirty it keeps on trying to read the data from cd or dvd and it just cant stop that infact stuck in it , or the other reason is faulty loading gear , in either case u have to physically dis assemble the player , remove the top cover some 4 or 6 screws are there in place open the top cover see the cd /or dvd and remove it physically do not force anything hard when removing the media and then if u can see the lens of ur player just clean it with a soft cloth with ur fingers in cicular motions very gently and u will see that it will play dvd /cd fine , the other thing if the loading gear is faulty or broken then u can ask me more on this

Pls rate me WELL !

I am showing no disc on the dvd player but the audio and video are plugged in along with the remote plug in. Is their something I am missing.

Are you trying to play a burned DVD or a purchased/rented DVD? If so, the movie files will be in a different format. (e.g. .avi or .mpg versus VOB files). Some dvd players will play burned dvds, the key is to look the acronym DIVX. This ensures that the dvd player will play .avi and .mpg files.

Dvd player not working says error but will play movies like block buster movies if u cant answer that question .. just tell me what kind of movies its compatible with for i can make them myself

dvd player will only play movies for the COUNTRY in which you purchased it. There is no way to purchase a system or configure a system to play ALL MEDIA FOR ALL COUNTRIES. The country codes are specific and each country wants to prevent any other country from playing their dvds music, etc.
