Jensen uv8 no pic and very noisy when loading

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.

Re: jensen uv8 no pic and very noisy when loading

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.

i sounds like your Laser is not riding up and down sled freely. Loud noises coming from DVD drive always indicate Sled trouble.

Can't find Jensen UV10 e-brake bypass code.

Ok what you gotta do is connect the pink e-brake wire with the black wire that is already connected to the radio as the grounding.

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.

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 " 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.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

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

Parking Brake wire on Jensen VM9311TS

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.
