Question about Jensen VM9510 Car DVD Player
I have a Jensen VM9510 that a friend gave to me and I would like to know how to test it to make sure it works without actually hooking it up to my car. It took me a while to hook my deck up and it is cold out and it would just suck to get everything finished with no end result other than it doesn't work! If anyone can tell me how to hook up the VM9510 to a battery or whatnot to check everything then let me know!
Thanks in advance!!!
I know of 3 different ways. 1st way involves going outside to your vehicle, pop the hood and twist the lamp wire (i think its green or orange) and the red and yellow wires together and hold them on the positive terminal, them touch the black ground wire to the negative side. You will get power if the unit works. Next one, take any type of low voltage wall adapter that says 12 volt output on it and plug it in to an outlet, again take the lamp, yellow and red wires and twist them together so you only have a very tiny point accessible on the tip, stick that tip in the tiny hole in the end of the adapter, then touch the black ground wire to the outside metal of the same tip. Powers up if the unit works. And last the easiest one take enough household batteries to equal 12 volts (AA & C are 1.5 each) tape them all together forming a string of batteries (I think it + to - and so on then of course, same wire configuration as the last two and touch the twisted positive wires to the + end and the neg wire to the - end, if you do the battery method make sure they are all good batteries. If you only are getting say 9 volts of juice the lights will come on on the buttons but it will not power up. They must have 11-12 volts to turn on. Hope this helps, and oh ya they are all safe to you and the unit. Only 12 volts. Good luck!!!
