Question about Sony MV-900SDS Car DVD Player

1 Answer

Can't get sound out of car stereo system

For some reason, I stopped being able to get the DVD player sound to come through my FM car stereo.  It used to work and then stopped.  The DVD player and car stereo are both set for 89.1 mhz.  The DVD player FM modulator is on and I've switched from Off, Low, Medium and High but that doesn't help either.

What am I doing wrong?  Please help, I'm stumped.

I get a picture but no sound. I bought the car with the dvd player already installed but no directions.

Hopefully you have a remote control for this unit. There is a FM select button. It's to turn on the FM modulator. When you press the button it will select different radio stations on the FM band. Once you select a station on the DVD, tune your vehicle radio station to the same and you will be able to hear the sound. Use this system to select the station with the best reception and less interference.
If no remote is available, there may be a FM button on the DVD player to perform the same function.

I have video but no sound i cant get sound on fm

The problem could be that the outputs in the stereo are faulted. Did you get a warranty when you bought the stereo?, if not you may want to take it to a repair shop and ask for a diaognosis.

I just bought the dual headrest from walmart and can not get the sound to work the passenger side. can anyone help me with this?or possibly tell me how to get the sound through the stereo.

The monitor only headrest does not have audio handling circuitry in it. the wire harness for that side is the one with the red and black wire, and the two video inputs, not the harness with the red and black wire and the three RCA jacks. It will function on the wrong harness, but it is not the correct one.

The DVD headrest has two harnesses. One of them is for power and output, the other is for input only from another source. The harness with the red and black wire has the three RCA outputs... the video lead goes to the other headrest, and the audio can be fed to an aux input on a stereo or amplifier. The input harness is designed to be Video 2 input from either a gaming system (a Game Cube is a nice option), or another DVD or video source (hand held video device such as iPod or Smart Phone like a HTC Touch Pro 2).

To get sound out of the stereo, either run the audio output from the headrest to the aux input on your stereo, or cycle the FM transmit options using the FMTX button on the DVD player unit to a station you can tune to on your car's FM radio.

You're probably gonna need a wired FM modulator. That part will take an audio output and run it into your antenna plug on your radio. It will use a FM channel, but it's wired directly to your stereo. So no static as found with wireless FM transmitters.

On my ad212 dvd system by Myron and Davis it has an attached fm radio modulator. It has 4 channels you can use and they corresponed to unused frequencies in the users area of travel . Mine is set to 88.7 fm and all I had to do was set the FM radio to 88.7 to get the audio playing on the dvd movie.

No audio

FM station 88.1 or similar. Set radio to scan while dvd is playing. When the correct frequency is reached, you'll hear sound.

No sound

see in the manual if theres a way to retune the wireless system most all units do have a little control someware where you can put your cars stereo on to a station with nothing on it and then you simply tune and tweek the adjustment so it sounds good. if you dont see it go to where you bought it or contact the service dept in the owners manual. Good luck
