Hook the pink wire to a toggle switch and ground the switch to the chassis. when the unlawfull screen comes on then turn the switch on for a few seconds then back off for a few seconds then back on and the screen should go away. I done this with mine and it works. unfortunately you have to do this every time.

My DVD player keeps saying forbid while driving. I just got the head unit and can't figure out how to get it to play DVDs

Most dash-mounted dvd players have a "park" switch that disables them from playing unless the vehicle is in park - cuts down on distracted driving.

Does lg play .vob files (ripped) dvd's?

Actually, DVD purchased or rented from stores always have copyright protections. To put dvd to ur LG phone, you need to use dvd ripper to bypass the copyright protection and convert dvd to lg-friendly format 3GP/MP4 . I recommend that you use Daniusoft to rip the DVD's, it can bypass all kind of dvd copyright protection schemes and save the DVD to computer in LG video formats.

Most of all, it will not break the video into pieces, it will join all DVD titles and chapters and make them as one standalone video file.

My in dash tv dont play dvd when the park brake is on

Sounds like it was wired backwards. The car in-dash receivers with video are suppose to be wired so that they will only play when the parking brake is on.

You should check your manual with your in-dash and find out how the parking brake sense wire is suppose to be wired, typically people just wire them with a switch to ground or +12V (CHECK MANUAL FOR WHICH ONE) and then flip the switch when they want it to play video; or they just wire it permanently to whatever is needed, but on some receivers that won't work because it checks for that.
