Question about Recoton Advent Advent DVD-8200 DVD Player
My 2007 Saturn Outlook ceiling mounted dvd system will not load a dvd movie. There was no manual when I bought the car on a trade-in. There is also no model number, etc....only the word "Advent" to identify the make of the player. When we put in a dvd, it says LOADING then goes black. Also, I do not know why the sound only works through headphones. A speaker is visible on the top of opened unit.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

SOURCE: I bought a 2007 GMC
These types of dvd's are custom installs so the brand and model pf the player would have helped.
On them the sound is sent in 3 ways:
1 - usually there is a cable coming from its audio output connections to the AUX input of the radio. You will have to check the player to see if one was installed; if it has you must make sure the radio is set to use the AUX entry as a source and that the cable connecting them is intact. For testing purposes you should connect a separate amplifier to the player thru these output connectors to see if you get a sound; if you don't then the defect is in the player. Check the audio settings, if they are ok then the defect is hardware and the player will have to be taken to a repair shop.
2 - if the guy that installed it didn't wanted to bother with the hassle of removing the head liner to draw the audio wore then it has most likely just set the connection thru the FM modulator: the player has a modulator that transmits the sound thru the FM radio band; to listen to it all you need to do is to tune it at the frequency of the modulator - usually between 88 and 89.5 MHz.
3 - the headphones - very simple devices. The only thing you can check here are the settings from the player.
