Hi,

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 (http://peripheralelectronics.com/). 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.

    Hi again,

    Have you tried wiring the yellow/blue as instructed by Alpine to the parking brake?
    If yes, and the unit operates when "parked", then what is needed is a SPDT switch that will supply +12 to the said wire when not in operation but switchable to GND when you wish to operate. What it does is simulate the condition of activating the parking brake.
    If yes, and the unit still fails to operate, then the unit may require the services of a qualified repair technician and not just an installer.
    If no, perhaps you need to try it to verify whether it is the wiring or the unit that causes the "Safe Mode".

    As initially posted, have you considered the Peripheral PTR7? Its product description is "Universal Trigger/ Video Bypass Module".

    Cheers.

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.

Kenwood kvt-719dvd plays dvd but wont show picture


It is probably that the parking safety wire wasn't hooked up properly, or at all. Most in dash dvd players are equipped with a motion safety device to prohibit the driver from viewing movies and such on the monitor while the vehicle is in motion. The wire for this needs to be hooked to the parking brake light wiring. This will ensure that when the parking brake is on, the dvd can sense that the vehicle is stopped, and should therefore show the image.

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...
