I bought a used car that has the SAVV Headrest monitors, but no remote. Anyone know where I can get one or know of a universal that would work? It remains on standby when I start my DVD player and does not kick in automatically. With the monitor in the headrest, it isn't easy to get to the power buttons and turn them on...It would be great to get the remote for it....

Those cables can go bad easily. If you have a meter and know how to use it, try to test continuity on each pin. If that isnt the answer, then either the input of second monitor is faulty, or output of main screen.
If you still need them, let me know I bought one as well and it had them. I will copy them for you. I can only get the one that has the built in dvd player to get sound the other has video but no sound. Let me know if yours works.
The monitor only headrest does not have audio handling circuitry in it. the wire harness for that side is the one with the red and black wire, and the two video inputs, not the harness with the red and black wire and the three RCA jacks. It will function on the wrong harness, but it is not the correct one.
The DVD headrest has two harnesses. One of them is for power and output, the other is for input only from another source. The harness with the red and black wire has the three RCA outputs... the video lead goes to the other headrest, and the audio can be fed to an aux input on a stereo or amplifier. The input harness is designed to be Video 2 input from either a gaming system (a Game Cube is a nice option), or another DVD or video source (hand held video device such as iPod or Smart Phone like a HTC Touch Pro 2).
To get sound out of the stereo, either run the audio output from the headrest to the aux input on your stereo, or cycle the FM transmit options using the FMTX button on the DVD player unit to a station you can tune to on your car's FM radio.
Do the headrests detach?? If they do, you can buy the pair of 7" headrest DVD/Monitors all-in-one from Farenheight (made by Jensen). I have used these several times. Not only do the headrests match,but the product lasts too! The best part is that they are about 1/2 the price of many others.
I interfaced the SAVV LM-S6001 today. Here's what I found;
Looking straight on at the male 8 pin DIN connector here's how I'll describe it. There are 3 pins across the top row. From left to right I'll call them 8, 7, 6. There are 2 pins on the left side of the middle row, 5 leftmost and 4 adjacent to the center. Moving right, there is a gap and then pin 3 on the rightmost side of the middle row. There are two pins on the bottom row, pin 2 on left and pin 1 on right. Draw that on some paper.
8 7 6
o o o
5 o o o 3
Pin 1 is +12VDC
Pin 2 is center contact of both audio and video RCA jacks
Pin 3 is -12VDC
Pin 4 is outer RCA contact for Video
Pin 5 -n/c
Pin 6 -n/c
Pin 7 -n/c
Pin 8 is outer RCA contact for Audio
Now, I don't know what pin 7 does, but it is wired next to pin 4 suggesting a video application, Svideo is my best guess. I can only test for a composite video connection that I am using.
A blue screen suggests no input signal, or a signal that the electronics in the screen can't handle. I don't think you need the remote, but, it may help.
I suggest you try the dvd on a working monitor and check that it's a compatible output.
The LM-S6001 is a multi-system monitor both NTSC(US) and PAL(Europe/Aisa).
The monitor has a composite video (usually yellow) and RCA(phono) input and DIN, the manufacturer is unclear if both plugs are present. You can assume it's auto-switching, but that may not be the case.
More information is needed to fully understand your problem.
