Seem like you are not getting enough voltage to the monitor. Find a volt meter and check se if you are getting at least 12 to 14 volt on both your constant(yellow) and ignition(red).

There is no video on my kenwood ddx8017, why? Do i have to bypass the parking break wire? which one is it, the solid green, or red with black, or pink?


If you want to watch videos on your unit it is necessary to bypass the parking brake wire from the Kenwood unit. The parking brake wire is light green and the best possible way to bypass the unit is by installing a toggle switch. The toggle switch should be a two wire device. Connect one wire to ground and the other wire to the parking brake wire from the unit. This will allow you to switch the supply on the wire to ground when needed.
Also, in some older Kenwood units you could just as easily connect the parking brake wire to ground and be done with it but, it does not always work.

How can I watch dvd on my kenwood radio while I drive


you have to bypass the parking brake safety switch. Basically, right now it is wired to the ground on your parking brake. Figure out where it is by following the wire from the head unit. Disconnect it, and connect the parking brake wire to the ground for the radio itself.

How do I disable the parking brake safety feature on a jensen VM8113 car dvd player?


I have this exact same unit, here's what you do:

1) Cut the little weird "do-hickey" off the end of the pink wire so that the wire looks like all the other wires.

2) Strip some of the coating from around the tip of the wire (so the wire is exposed).

3) Ground that wire to the unit itself under one of the clips or something (as long as its metal).

4) Pop a dvd in and it will play irregardless of the parking brake position.

5) This definitely works, however, I'm assuming this is so your family can watch and not you, right?

Dvd screens in headrests are not getting power


The problem seems to be that the video out from the kenwood head unit is either faulty or the leads from the head unit to the monitors are faulty. Have you checked to see that the head unit when playing a DVD is set on ZONE 2 so that it transfers the video signal to the headrest monitors?

Kenwood kvt-719 brake bypass code needed


I've never seen a code that allows it, but you can do it in the wiring harness. Most DVD head units have one extra wire in their wiring harnesses, compared to a standard CD head unit. On mine, it's a peach-colored wire, and is the activation wire for the DVD feature. During the installation, the instructions call for this wire to be tapped into the emergency brake indicator light wire. The reason is this:

The e-brake indicator light is what is called a "ground complete" circuit. That means that the bulb always has power applied, but when you pull the brake, that puts a ground to the wire and completes the circuit, allowing it to illuminate. The head unit sees this ground, and activates the DVD player.

In my Jensen unit, I simply ran this wire to a ground (I used a screw near the fuse box), and I put a switch on the wire, so I could break the ground contact at will. Jensen calls for a procedure to activate DVD playback. In their instructions, they tell you to select DVD from the option menu, and when the "lawyer screen" comes up (the one warning you to park before you watch a movie), you release the e-brake for 3-5 seconds, and then reapply it. To simulate that with the switch I used, I leave the switch closed (activated), and select DVD. Then I flip the switch "off" for 3-5 seconds, and flip it back "on". This tricks the head unit into thinking I put the e-brake off for a few seconds and then put it back on, and the movie will start. Then I can drive away.

Basically, ground the wire that is used for DVD activation, and put a switch inline on it. Then you can break and reapply the ground in whatever manner is required by the manufacturer of your head unit. If there is no off/on sequence with yours, as there is with mine, simply ground the wire to a screw inside the dashboard and you're done.

There is a bulletin on the mech which requires 2 springs to be replaced. When you install disc the cd pushes on two sliders that push on switches to detect the position of the sliders the springs pull sliders back to original position. Sometimes the slider may stick due to not enough spring tension and possible restriction due to dust dirt etc. This would be a possible problem for your symptom . kstahl65@att.net
