    thanks, thats what ive been told, however i need a little more detail.. the wire (Yellow/black) is spliced into the break wire. I assume that i would just remove the sheeth on that wire (y/b), install the switch and ground out the other this correct?

Put a switch on the brake wire make sure the switch is on the off position. the switch should have two wires ,one wire connects to the brake wire the next wire ground it to the car .then turn on the stereo put a dvd in and turn the swicth on and off several times .It should come on

You can get a PAC TR7 and it will do the trick. i read somewhere that you dont need the brown wire. but, you do thats how you program it. so here is how you hook it up and program it to work with your deck.1. Connect the black wire to chassis ground and connect the red wire to 12v accessory.
2. Slide the TR-7 switch to the ON position and turn the ignition on.
3. 'Pulse' the brown wire 2 times and wait 3 seconds. The LED will flash 2 times for confirmation. The LED will rapidly flash for 3 seconds.
4. Slide the switch to the OFF position.
5. Connect the green wire to the Alpine's blue/wht wire, the blue wire to the Alpine's footbrake input and the white wire to the Alpine's handbrake input.
6. The TR-7 will automatically bypass the video safety when the radio is turned on.

Purchase a PAC 7 on Ebay for 15-20 bucks and wire that in with the instructions that come with the PAC 7 device and then you can watch movies on the highway. I have three Monitors in two of my cars and a Pac 7 in both and wired the output of the radio to the rear 19" monitor in my Yukpn XL Denali, and a 7" TV wired in the Dash where the regular radio is suppose to be and I wired my Alpine d 310 where my 6 disc changer is supposed to be in the dash so I have two 7 inch TV in the dash and a 19 in the back. Also in my 2005 Pontiac Bonneville GXP I have a 7" in the dash and two 9.5" in the TVSin the rear headrests.

My w205 screen was cracked and there are no controlling options. is there a way to fix the screen? Is the screen the problem? And does it have a remote control?

The only way to fix both your problems is to mail it into Alpine, the screen is laced in with ribbins and soldered by twelve tips on the circuit board. If you have years of electronic back ground you maybe able to fix the screen, the IR controller the remote maybe bad or the IR sensor is back in the head unit is a 3 pin item that maybe needs to be resoldered or a new one soldered in place of the defective one. I have the same unit and I havent had any problems?? How did you break the screen?

IVA-D106 Car DVD Player: no picture on screen while dvd is playing...

Im guessing that if you can hear sound but have no picture and this is newly installed that your unit is wired to your parking brake as a safety feature. You need to disconnect it and connect the wire to the radio ground to bypass it.

How do I watch videos in drive in 1996 cadillac deville

Nice car. I have a 96 Deville also and i'm installing the same radio in it in about 2 days. there are two options to bypassing the video lockout:you can either buy the PAC TR-7 bypass cable which costs around 20 bucks on or you can wire the parking break wire to a toggle switch and ground a wire from the neg end of the toggle switch.The PAC controller is way more convenient because you dont have to flip the toggle switch 3 times everytime you get in the car.I hope this helped
