1 Answer

Flip down monitor

When I ran the red 12V wire to the red 12V wire to the harness and the same with the black wire the monitor started smoking and blew the fuse. I replace the fuse and still no response. I took it down looked at the wires and they were all still in place nothing loose but the plastice was melted No power is going to the monitor. What do you think the problem is?

Flip down monitor how to wire it

The proper connection for these wires are: the red and black on the RCA cable go to chassis ground and a switched 12volt wire (accessory or ignition) and should be fused at the connection with not more than a 15 amp fuse.

I have lines across my flip down monitor in my car. Everything is hooked up and its grounded!

there could be a problem with where your getting the power from. sometimes the altenator, coil, spark plug wires, etc can cause interference, especially if the vehicle is a bit older. try adding an inline 12v filter, or video amplifier.

JVC KW-AVX710 not save. after switch off the car .when start it again all settings become to default

If your unit is not maintaining it's memory, it may be associated with the lack of a constant 12 volt power source. Test the units yellow wire, it should rest at 12 volts with the key in all positions; off, acc, on/run, start. This yellow wire should be connected to the vehicle's battery wire. Also, test the red wire. This wire should be connected to a switched 12 volt power source. It should read 12 volts with the key in accessory and on/run only. If you used a vehicle specific wiring harness to complete the installation, the wires may be switched in the harness. It's not a common issue but, I have seen it happen.

My kvt-719dvd will not power up. I hit the reset button and nothing happens. When I take the faceplate off the red security light blinks....Just wired up a flip down and using the same power source as the...

take a digital volt meter and check powers and grounds

red ignition switched wire should read with car on and running 12.5 volts to 14.4
yellow constant power comming from battery should read at all time 12.5 to 14.4
black wire is ground and should be ground to the frame of car

lets take your radio ground and put your volt meter black lead on it and then put the red test lead to the read wire and if you have a good ground you get a reading of 12.5 to 14.4 if you car is running if ignition if on accesory it will read 12.5 do the same test to the yellow wire make sure you get a reading without the car on at all . this wire will have power on all the time hint(constant power) or (b+) if no reading on any wires you have a bad ground

let me know what you get for voltage to help you more

to get a good ground you need to scrap the paint off to bare metal and then us a stare washer and use a good stanless steal screw so dont rust for a good ground ..

either replace the stereo, or trouble shoot the powersupply internally. you should find a transistor (fet) in the powersupply area (close to where the wiring harness plugs in) that is shorted.

Hi i have a problem with the memory on my ripspeed dv720 dvd player. it does not remember the radio stations i have tuned in after the car is switched off and back on again?

The constant 12v power and the standard 12v power are mixed, all you have to do is swap these wires around (usually red and yellow) they expect this problem and will have pre cut the wires so all you have to do is unplug the red wire and plug it into the yellow wire, and plug yellow into red, so you have 2 wire half red other half yellow, this goes for all head units.

Car TFT LCD monitor with only an s-video cable input??

A bit late on this! You will need a multi cable for the unit. It connects with the cable on the monitor and the other end has several terminals, usually like so.... NTSC video, audio, bat positive and battery negative. Could also be left and right audio.

The rear camera have two wires: one is Video AV2 and the other is black/red color, OK. Now, my question is:Where to connect the black/red wire? Thank you.

This is the power connection.

You need to connect this to a 12v switching circuit to enable the camera to overide the current display.

For example, you could attach it to the reversing light switch in the gear box so that when you select reverse the picture is over ridden with your camera view. Or to the reversing lamp. You could connect it direct to a switch for manual control.
