Re: Power won't stay on.

There should be Two power wires connected one to constint power and One should be hooked to the power for ignition I also believe that there is a saftey that turns its off after so many seconds, There should be a way to disable that function in the owners manual, I sure Hope that helps you out Happy Holidays If not Lets fix it somehow just write back and let me know if that works..

JVC KD-AVX1. The head unit will not "turn on" when the power button is pushed. The display just stays off. The face lights up when you press the eject button and opens up and you are able to feed...

is this a headunit you have just installed? if not then I am not sure, but if it is, try swapping the red and yellow wires over. One should have permanent live, the other should be switchable. (unless you want the headunit to stay on when the ignition is off, in which case put them both to a permenant live feed.)
Hope this helps.

XO VIson DVD 7" works fine but when it is turned

sounds like you might have the wire that is always supposed to have power hooked to a switched power source

is it possible you hooked up power wires wrong

sounds like switched wire is hooked to battery and battery connection is hooked to switched source

only other option would be if ground is hooked incorrectly it should be hooked diretly to clean non painted metallic spot on cars body

if you need more help give me more details and i will try to help more

Good luck

I've hooked up the back up camera to the cameras input and connected the power wire to the back up lights. I'm getting power, but I don't see an option for the camera in the menu nor does the camera come...

i don't know exactly what system you are using
from what you stated your saying the monitor is powering up when put car into reverse
but the camera is not coming on
what this tells me is either the camera it self not getting power or ground
u hooked up the video wire between monitor
the camera needs to get power some how it might be the wire that hooks into monitor but i don't think so usually that just the video wire (but depends on system)
i assuming there is one or two more wires on the camera itself that needs hooked up
a power wire
and a ground wire if there no ground wire then frame where camera is mounted to on car needs to be cleaned of all rust and paint

I assumed allot if this don't help you at all please let me Make and Model # of your camera system and i try and help you more

It starts like it is going to work but then goes dark I can even try it when it is dark and you still cant see the monitor. If i push the ntsc/pal button on the remote the screen will flash and you...

Check your power and ground and make sure they are secure and the wire you are tapping into can handle the draw. You can hook it directly to the battery for testing purposes. If it works then your power and ground are to blame, if not then it is the unit.

You are simply in blackout mode. This is so at night you aren't blinded by the glow of a screen. Here are instructions right from the manual to turn on or off.

Blackout Mode On and Off
When Blackout mode is turned on, the monitor display will turn off to
reduce power consumption.
This additional power enhances the sound quality.
1 Touch [VISUAL] on the main source screen.
The VISUAL selection screen is displayed.
2 Touch [OFF].
The backlit-display portion goes out.
3 Touch [OFF] again to cancel the display backlight.
To make the setting, set to “Setting the VISUAL Touch Button” (page
If any button on the unit is pressed during Blackout mode, the
function will be displayed for 5 seconds to show the operation before
returning to Blackout mode.
While the backlighting is turned off, the function indicator

Jensen VM9311/ UV7i wont turn on!!?

Yo, I've got the perfect solution to your problem. Pull out the head unit from your dash. Then, remove the wiring harness carefully from the unit. Now, push in the yellow power wire (even jiggle it a little) making sure it's tightly snug the small port of the wiring harness. Then, plug the harness back into the unit and try turning it on. I've found that the wires come lose easily on this unit. hit me back up at
