I hooked up a dvd player to the alpine unit ,my drop down plays the movie. the receiver plays the only prob i hve is the screen on the in dash reads screen off for safety how do i turn the screen back on?
There is a wire on the back of the unit marked hook up 2 parking brake....what i did was ran that wire to a toggle switch and to the cigarette lighter ground and mounted the toggle switch on my dash...then all u have 2 do is flip the swith off and on and it tricks the player to thinking the car is in park and will play right away...

there is alot of hacks you can buy online or most car audio place will do it for a fee hooking the ebrake wire to the ground will sometimes work but after time it will start messing up the indash i suggest not doing it that way it will mess it up and its aginst the law to have the indash playing a movie while driving you will get a ticket
i believe if you dont have the parking brake hooked up on your unit, you wont be able to watch any thing. check around online or your local audio dealer bout buying a bypass relay so you can drive and watch if you choose to. or hook that wire up right. hope this was helpfull
you need to hook up the foot brake like it said but hook up a switch on the parking brake wire to ground do not hook it up to parking brake just a switch ground one side ant togle it while your foot is on the brake once the screen is on leave the switch in that position you will have to do this every time you turn the car off but you can see the screen while driving

lol i had the exact problem that you are having with my alpine. The solution is taking the blue cord that was inside the vehicle (forgot what cord it was) and actually connecting it with the other blue cord thats different makes the factory amp read the cd player and ta-da it works. crazy isn't it
