It plays DVD's you will see the touchscreen buttons but no video even when parking brake is up, if you attach another monitor it shows on the extra monitor. If you sends video thru the AUX connector it shows in the indash screen but when using DVD's its just blank but still accepts touch commands. Is there a way it could be ressetted (try the reset button already) is it a function turned on/off?

Yes it does. The emergency brake wire is a safety feature. If you don't have it hooked up it won't even display anything. If you do have it hooked up then you have to have the emergency brake engaged to be able to view DVD'S. The manufacturer does this so people can't just unhook the brake wire and watch DVD'S while driving
Your "Emergency Parking" wire is disconnected. You need to connect it to your parking brake, or you can also connect it to Parking switch if you have automatic transmission. You can play video only when parked
There is a workaround though...
Warning: In most states in US law bill bans drivers from operating televisions and video screens in their line of vision while the vehicle is moving.
Due to the law you can use this workaround at your own risk:
1. You can just ground the parking brake wire to your radio, and you are done.
2. You can adjust factory settings
Go to""Setup", and then to "Screen" menu
with your remote press 543210, this will show a hidden menu
now set the parking brake menu from "off" to "on".and exit the menu
NOTE: disconnecting the car battery will reset the code to default "off" state.
It is probably that the parking safety wire wasn't hooked up properly, or at all. Most in dash dvd players are equipped with a motion safety device to prohibit the driver from viewing movies and such on the monitor while the vehicle is in motion. The wire for this needs to be hooked to the parking brake light wiring. This will ensure that when the parking brake is on, the dvd can sense that the vehicle is stopped, and should therefore show the image.
push in the driving brake. while holding in the brake , engage the parking brake. disengage the parking brake.then repeat this step again. a notice should pop up and you should be fine after that. I put one in a F-350 and had the same problem.
Having the car in "park" is not the key. The unit needs to see a 'ground' on the light green wire that attaches to the parking brake. (see manual). You can get around this by installing a toggle switch OR a relay that will user the 'amp remote' wire as the trigger.
Do you have the green cord that attaches to the parking break hooked up?
This stereo is designed so that you cannot watch videos while driving, therefore you need to have the parking break on in order to get video.
when you play a dvd with out the parking break on, you will only get sound.
do you have the installation manual,if you have it you are mising to conect a pink wire which is the parking brake wire,follow the sequence step to get the picture.email me i can help you remind me about your problem, firstname.lastname@example.org
well to start the e-brake will need to be applied to allow you to see the video if it was installed correctly.................to over ride this feature you need a toggle switch with 3 pins on it
on the toggle switch there should be two logos (power & ground) if you run a small wire from the red wire from the back of your in-dash system to the toggle switch (power) and do the same for the black wire (ground wire)..........the last pin on toggle switch you attach the e-brake wire from the back of your in-dash system to the toggle switch pin and turn it on video will play
if this doesn't work switch the e-brake and ground wire around on the toggle switch
hope this helped
1. FACTORY RESET METHOD (Temporary)
(This isn't the most effective, but it is the easiest to try, so it's worth a shot since it apparently works on some units.)
** Go to the Menu
** Get to the Settings Menu
