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
Are you trying to view while driving if so the unit is not supposed to play that way. If you are parked you need to engage the parking brake. Its illegal to have video showing while moving. Most installers know how to do it but arent supposed to do it because they can get sued for setting it up that way in your car if you get in an accident
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
look at the install diagram(wiring codes) that came with the unit. if it has a wire that's designated for the parking brake (allowing you to only watch dvds while brake is engage) take that wire and instead of hooking it up to the parking brake, ground it or put an in-line switch between wire and ground so you can turn that function on and off. warning!!! watching while driving is illegal in most states
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
** Select <yes> to Reset to Factory Settings.
2. AUDIO CD METHOD (Permanent) ** Insert Audio CD ** Press PLAY ** Press STOP twice on remote ** Enter 26604 on remote ** Press ENTER ** Take out Audio CD and Insert a DVD Credit: Myself via a DUAL Tech
3. DVD METHOD (Permanent) ** Insert a DVD ** Let it play until you hear sound ** Press STOP twice on remote ** Enter 26604 ** Press ENTER Credit: Adam P.
to watch dvd video on xod1730 like what adamdog said you need to attach/mix the pink/braking wire to black/ground wire and if you want to disable the pink/braking wire all you have to do is not to attach it to black wire or any wire and cover pink end wire with electric tape.
