I am having trouble with the wiring, tried to ground the pink wire and even use a toggle switch in the connection for switching off and on, still no pic and the dvd player won't load the dvd. it makes loud noises in attempting to load, is it possible that the unit it bad and should i do anything with the green/white wire or just leave that out.
No, it is not your laser, the jensens have a little trick to making them work, after you put the toggle switch in, you need to place it in the on position, turn it off and back on 5 times in 5 seconds, one flip per second, then the unit will start to play video, after you turn it on for the fith time. you should end in the on position. jensen does this so that you can not just ground the wire to get it to work.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

1 take a toggle switch 12 volt dc and 20 amps
2 take the pink wire attach the wire to the top terminal of the toggle switch
3 take the bottom terminal and attach a black wire to it and ground the other side of wire you must have a good ground ...
then once this is done test the switch turn on dvd it a video and flip the switch up and down a couple of time to simulate the parking brake and the video should work ...
if this doesnt work email me and ill give you the relay diagram to connect a relay inline to activate video but im pretty sure it will ...
hook up the ground with the pink and when you are in am/fm mode hit the dvd set
up button on the remote, input the no. 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, and 0 make sure
it beeps after every no. has been pressed. then it should bring up the
hidden menu select the hammer option and turn on the brake bypass
option. your done.
i took this from the uv8 brake bypass. it works on the uv9.
The pink wire in most instances is the DVD's sensor that the vehicle is not in motion and is parked. It then allows the DVD player to display the movie not the warning message nor the blue screen. Your description "...pink wire on a bolt attached to the body..." indicates that said wire is constantly grounded. The DVD then cannot sense that the vehicle was parked. What this tell us is that the pink wire must first have a +12VDC before it is grounded. This changeover from + to 0 is the trigger. What is required is to have a single pole double throw switch. One end terminal is wired to ACC B+12 while the other to ground with the center terminal to the pink wire. Moving the switch from position OFF to ON (+12 to GND) simulates the parking brakes condition and will enable DVD playback.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
for the uv8 to bypass the parking brake to watch dvds you have to take the pink wire and put one end to one of the screws on a two screw toggle switch connect the other end of the pink wire to the other screw and connect that to the black ground wire
turn on the player, start the radio option, go into the setup menu, tap the language tab, ON THE REMOTE press "stop, stop, 5,4,3,2,1" This will bring up the secret menu, you do not need to connect the pink wire
It may need to see a Positive....not a ground (the brake wire rests at ground and goes positive when the pedal is pressed). but to answer your question, the brake wire for your car is Light Green and is at the brake switch above the pedal.
