Hello Could you tell me how to get the infrared

Hello... I am sorry to hear you are having problems. I am unsure if you bought this as a package deal with the headphones or purchased the headphones separately. If you purchased them separately, they may not be compatable. Headphones come in different frequencies. The reason for this is if you had 2 different dvd players and 1 kid was watching Spongebob and the other kid was watching Hannah Montana, they would not interfere with each other as far as sound. Some dvd players will allow you to change the output frequency of the IR (infrared) transmitter built into the dvd player. This feature would be in the menu section of your dvd player. Make sure the headphones are on properly, because if they are backwards, they may not read, because IR frequencies are "line of sight" meaning the receiver (headphones) has to see the transmitter (dvd player). You will see a tinted window that has 3 or 4 bulbs. That will be your transmitter. Make sure you have good batteries in the headphones and that you have them turned on. If you have power and have checked the IR frequency, and they were purchased aftermarket, then you may need a different set that receives the correct frequency. If this is a package deal and you have checked the batteries and they power up properly, you may have a bad IR transmitter inside the dvd player. With the info you provided I can only speculate at this point, but this gets you on a start. Let me know if I can help more! Good luck with your venture!!

I have two clarion 3018 2 channel headphones. Can i make them work with the DVD in my car?

IR headphones are pretty interchangeable between overhead and headrest systems (make to make, factory to aftermarket etc).

What DVD system do you have in your car?

I need an instruction manual on how to operate a remote car starter. I have just bought a 2006 Chev Equinox with one already installed. I would like the advantages and disadvantages.Theft info,etc! Thanx...

i do not believe the equinox has a remote starter from factory so i am to assume someone had one installed. most directed electronics type alarms simply require you to press the AUX button twice to begin the remote start sequence. if this is not a Directed product then what button you press and how many times you press it may vary.

My remote in my keys no longer work to unlock my doors or trunk. I have changed the batteries in the keys, the light blinks when I push it. What could be wrong? I have a 2001 GS300

Most likely: You have to now "reprogram"your key fob and car to recognize each other. Look in your User's Manual for the car or, if it's an aftermarket fob/lock system, look in the user's manual for that. If there's nothing about battery replacement/reprogramming procedures, and it's a factory system, head into a dealer to reprogram it. It could run you up to $120, but that's cheaper than buying a new fob or system. If it's and aftermarket system and the manual says nothing, go to the place you had it installed (repair facility, Future Shop, etc) and have them reprogram it. If they installed it, they should know how to reprogram it.

Keep in mind, that's only the most likely option. Another possibility is that the receiver in the car, transmitter in the remote, or lock actuators/relays, etc in the car are the issue. It may not have been batteries in the first place at all. That said, it was most likely the batteries, and your best bet is trying to figure out how to reprogram the fob and car to recognize each other.

How do you work the sound on the DVD player?

I have a 2005 with DVD - but do not have the wireless headphones. I use the AUX button on the front radio to switch between FM/AM/and the DVD Player. I do have headphones jacks in the roof console by the DVD player, but have never used them.
