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.

Radio dont turn off when key turn off .........what im doing wrong?

Did you recently install/have it installed and has it ever worked correctly?

What it sounds like is that the 12v constant and 12v switched/ignition wires may be connected in reverse. Normally the constant is what powers the memory of the radio so you don't have to enter your settings/presets every time you turn it on. The switched/ignition is what actually powers on/off the unit when you turn the car on/off. If these are switched the settings will be forgotten every time the car is turned off and the unit will stay on when the car is off.

You can check your wiring with a multimeter. With the car off, find what is supposed to be the constant, put the positive lead from the meter to that and the negative to ground (can be any metal in the dash). It should read 12v or just under. Now do the same with the switched/ignition wire. With the key off there should be no reading. When the key is turned on you should get a reading of 12v or just under.

If its not that then it would most likely be something wrong with the unit itself, which would have to be looked at by a technician from the manufacturer.

There is also a small chance it could be something with the vehicles door switch. Some cars will leave the radio on, after the car is turned off, until the door is open. If the door switch has shorted out/gone bad it could keep the radio powered on. Without knowing the make and model of the car it would be difficult for me to describe where the door switch can be found.

I hope this helps

Unit powers up but disc cant go in

Make sure you dont have another disc stuck inside the unit. If not then try to reset it. The radio manual should tell you how to reset it.

How can i test my alpine cva-1005 head unit

You can bench test it by hooking up powers and ground to a battery (12 volt) and use a speaker to one set of speaker wires at a time. Even a 12 volt cordless drill battery will work. Should only take a few minutes. You just won't get reception to radio stations without an antennae.

No sound eonon 1012

As a simple test for the radio.. Connect both power leads, and the ground lead directly to the battery. If the radio powers up then you know there is a problem with your wiring, if the unit still does not power up, it's bad, and you are at the beginning of another rough Ebay story.

Factory TNR800 radio breaks. Replacement does not work

It needs to be unlocked and programmed by a GM dealer. I had mine done for about $75 US. When first installed it behaved just like yours - blue screen and no response.

Memory wont hold on AVIC-N2

Buy a cheap 12 volt tester pen from Radio Shack, and make sure your constant(yellow) always has power no matter  what position your ignition is and your accessory(red) only has power when the ignition is turned on. Some time those after market adapters are wrong(they are after market for a reason).
