Question about Kenwood KVT-617DVD Car DVD Player
Hello i just brought a kenwood kvt 911 from auction. Sellers said it was working when taken out. I haven't install the unit in my car yet because its to dark outside. But i have try to see if the unit powers on and functions. I put red & yellow to positive and black to negative. the unit powers up but monitors doesn't slides out and unit turns off in about 3 seconds after i tap the positive and negative. When i press the open buttons it powers up then shuts down again. Do you know whats going on? and whenever i do tap it to power it up , it makes a sound like a cd is ejecting from the unit.
I have a question. Everything is working perfectly except for there is no picture on the TV nor DVD. It was working fine until the other day when I messed around with some wires seeing if any of them were loose. Any suggestions?

I had a KVT910DVD / BRAIN/ KNA-DV2100 in my car but the head unit was shutting on n off n i had to reset it every other week. so I got a KVT911DVD from a guy in streetcarforum.com. he claimed that he had seen the unit work with his eyes. now i replaced the head unit with almost new KVT911DVD. i hooked up all the wires exactly the same way as with my previous head unit. but now the monitor would not slide out. i found that the hideaway brain is compatible with both units.
i called Kenwood USA n they want the unit to be sent in. is there any other trick to it that i am missing.

There is a green wire on the head unit you need to ground that out so the stereo thinks the e break is on. so that the screen will open

You have to have the brain unit and 16pin data cable connecting the two!

You must also ground out the parking brake (Green) wire or the unit will not open.
