Re: help


Depending on the vehicles wiring itself, Alpine uses the below color coding for its wiring:
yellow – constant +12v such as the positive battery terminal
red – switched 12v such as the accessory terminal of the IGN switch
black – ground which could be the chassis/body ground of the vehicle or the negative terminal of the battery
blue/white - remote trigger for add-ons such as a power amplifier
blue – will activate a power antenna (if present)
white and white/black - front left speaker + & -
grey and grey/black - front right speaker + & -
green and green/black - rear left speaker + & -
purple and purple/black - rear right speaker + & -
orange/white - reverse wire
white/pink - monitor control lead
pink/black - audio interrupt from mobile/cell phones
yellow/blue - parking brake
yellow/black - foot brake

To bypass, the yellow/blue must be triggered negative/grounded. Alternately, it may be easier to use an adapter such as a Peripheral PTR7 ( In some regions, it is not allowed to operate this unit while vehicle is in motion.

Hope this be of help. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck, kind regards and drive safe.

What do i have do by to make my alpine iva-d310 work insted of being blank

It Depends On What Is Wrong In The First Place... (Note) Make Sure Your Radio Is Hooked Up Correctly! All The Wires Have To Be In The Correct Places for the radio To Function Properly, Its Probably Color Coated So Just Match Wire to Wire From The Radio To The Harness, If U Dont Have a Wire Harness That Matches ur Vehicles Model Or Harness Then U Will Have to Go And Purchase One At Wal Mart Or Best-buy,If U Already Have The Proper Set up And Ur Radio Is Hooked Up Correctly And Its Still Not Working. If U Can Here Sound But No Picture then It Is Most Likely Your Lcd Ribbon That Connects From The Main Unit To The Flip-Out tv Screen, Hope This Helps :-)

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.

What color wire do i hook the pink wire to

Pink wire is generally the parking brake safety. If you dont want the dvd player to play video while in drive wire it to the ground on your parking brake sensor wire. If you do want it to play video while your driving, wire it directly back to the ground wire on your stereo.

Where does the parking brake wire hook up in order to bi-pass this option on alpine iva-c800 car audio system

based on my previous experience with the Alpine Mobile Multimedia Station, 1 wire needs to see 12 volts ie. brake light wire, the other needs to see ground ie. parking brake.

You can hook up the wire that needs 12 volts to either ignition or some other 12 volt source. The other wire needs to be connected to a toggle switch to ground. Then flip the switch as needed to simulate the parking brake and voila...
