Kenwood kvt 617 dvd monitor problems

Hi I hope that you an help me out on this.On my Kenwood 617 that I just got professionaly installed is a problem with the pictures being split in half, and sometimes the screen is very distorted.All of this only happens when I put a dvd in or try to play a dvd or game in the Playstation 2. Please help me. Is there a way that I can properly adjust my screen myself without taking my vehicle back to the shop? Can this be fixed?

    The screen isn't split evenly or purposely. The playstation isn't the problem directly I don't think.The dvd monitor is distorted like the old house tv's use to be when you had to turn the nob to postion the screen.

Are the dvd and playstation plugged into the correct input. Check the manual thouroughly to see if you can find a solution.

Is the problem just in the playstation? They have a split screen setting for playing with 2 people, maybee the plit screen setting is faulty.

Hideaway brain unit on my kenwood KVT-617 doesn't work

My KVT-617 display unit was stolen out of my dash, but they neglected to snag the items under the rear seat: the "brain" hideaway unit, the HD radio receiver, the 10 disc CD changer, the navigation unit, and the powered subwoofer.
Everything was replaced via the insurance except the sub because the new system was not compatible with the old components. Make me an offer on the items you want!

Contact the manufacture and tell them your kid was playing around with it and accidently locked it. They might make you send it in or/and charge you a fee. Good luck.
