Question about Dual XDVD8181 Car Video Player
To my knowledge the white/brown wire of a Dual XDVD8181 goes to the reverse lamp/switch. The pure yellow wire should go to an always on B+12 such as the battery positive terminal. It is the yellow/blue that goes to the emergency/parking brake.
Incidentally, this model is one of those that grounding the brake wire would allow DVD playback. There is a little trick to make it work. It should start first as +12 before it should be grounded before the DVD will play hence a DPST switch would be required, not only grounding.
This is better explained here. Should you be in need of the manual, it is available here.
Additionally and a friendly reminder, in some regions, it is not allowed to view a DVD movie while vehicle is in motion.
Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.

try connecting the red and yellow together, and to a 12 volt source. that should deffinately get power to the head unit.
check the fuse under the big connector on the back.
