My AVH3200BT headunit can't play videos from my Iphone, u can only hear the audio but not the video. HELP


Try putting the Vehicle in park and apply the parking brake. If it works at that point, then the Stereo is blocking the video due to "Safety" concerns.

I installed a used cd player eclips model cd 8443 in to a differnt truck and it reads securty 7b503792 on the screen and doesent work it was working fine befor i changed cd player


yeah you have to either contact the person you got it from because they should know the key to it. the key is a cd actually and it has to be the same cd that they used too not just a copy of it. you have to hold the number 6 button and the function button bellow it and it will SEC for a second i think and then itll say disc and you have to put that disc in, otherwise if you cant get the cd they used you have to call this number 1 800 233 2216 itll be automated, listen to all that **** about if you know your parties extention blah blah blah then you hit the number five and youll get another recording, the hit number one. after that youll get a person to talk to actually and ask them to direct you to technical support and the person will tell you to take out the cd player and look underneath it for the serial number on it but leaving it still on and the guy will be able to unlock it over the phone. i just had to do that the other day hope that helps

The disc does not eject and it does not play dvd or cd


okay, this only works in certain circumstances, remove the positive battery cable and reattach it, this will force the player to reboot and eject the disc. i've tried to pull the fuse and put it back but it doesn't do the same thing. let me know if it works :)

Parking brake (pink wire)


DVD head units have one extra wire in their wiring harnesses, compared to a standard CD head unit. On my Jensen, 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.

If you can't get it to work with this process (or whichever process the manufacturer describes in the manual), then that wire may not have been hooked up, or could have been hooked up incorrectly. You'll probably have to remove the head unit to investigate this.

"Safety off" on the screen.


99% of these in dash dvd players have this safety feature to prevent you from watching the dvd movie while driving down the road. There is a wire thats supposed to be hooked up to the parking brake, that way the video only works while the parking brake is on. With MOST of these units, you can bypass this annoyance by grounding the wire thats supposed to go to the parking brake switch.. (instead of hooking the wire to the switch hook it to a ground wire) FYI it is against u.s. federal law for the driver of a vehicle to watch a motion picture while driving down the road.. but that doesent stop most of us lol... -ampman
