Question about Pioneer AVH-P5700DVD Car DVD Player

4 Answers

Sound No Video

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?

Re: Sound No Video

You have to put the aux option ON in the menu.
1. Go to the menu, click on the third option to your left
2. The next menu will appear, click on the AV option
3. Select on

This should work now when you put the DVD in the unit, Also make sure that the parking brakes are up, or parking by-pass in working properly

Re: Sound No Video

I have a dual xdvd700, and I have the same deal going on, I mean, everything would work, but no image.
Is this a fuse that died or something?
What should I do?

Sound works but there is no display on the monitor. it worked for the first few days then now cant see nothing. Does the park brake wire have to be hooked up in order to show the display cause i know it...

  • 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

I have a AVH P3200BT and when I try to play a DVD , I get sound but no video. Please advise...

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

I just received it and installed it, it will play cds just fine, but it wont play the dvd, it says you cannot watch in this mode while driving but the vehicle is in park. How do I get the video to play?

you need to hoohup ground wire to the e brake wire of the unit. this wire is to enable the dvd to display video or attach it to the emergency brake switch.

DP Video car system to play video

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

I have the avn2454 and it will not play a dvd

is the car in park? There is a manual override that must be done, as it is against the law to have video playing in the driver's view.
Put car in park and apply parking brake. Retry.

I have a dual brand car monitor stereo that won''t show dvd

hi there
well to start the e-brake will need to be applied to allow you to see the video if it was installed 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

Xo vision xod-1730 product showing no image?

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.
