Question about Car Audio & Video

No power to ACT car video

We have a 2003 Town and Country, and have had three professionally installed ACT 8.4" car video players (ACTM84FDDVD) that have died. Each has been installed where the dome light would be. Each has stopped working. At first the DVD player works fine. Then the DVD has no power when the car is turned on, but after a time the power comes on while we're driving. Eventually the DVD will not turn on at all and it's dead. The second DVD player had a period where after if would finally turn on, it would loose signal. There would be sound, but no picture. It eventually died all the way too. The shop who is installing the DVD players says they're hooking them in to the radio. Our radio works fine. We have had a load test done on the car, and it is fine, too. Now we have the fourth DVD player installed, but we're afraid to turn it on until we know what's happening. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Those player are very low price and quility, about $25 each. I would go with an indash touchscreen unit from Pioneer or Kenwood and send signal to the flipdown screen.

When I insert a DVD, such as "Due Date"; even while my car is off and parked. The screen displays a message saying "ATTENTION You can not use this function while driving. Although I can hear...


the unit will have wires that need to connect to your foot brake, and parking brake. Its the law in the state I live (Alaska) that professional installation requires the dealer to install the wires to the foot and parking brake. There is usually a sequence to getting the picture up. (like holding down foot brake while applying parking break) then the message will disappear.
I simply bypassed this by connecting the two wires to the AUX (usually red wire) so there was a 12 volt draw. added two switches inline to act as the brake sensors.

Installation directions for an overhead DVD? If you have never done an overhead DVD installation, I recommend that you have it professionally installed.

My rosen dvd player doesn't work


could be a loose or weak wire connected in the rear. Did you have this professionally installed? I would check the wires before trashing. There are fuses in those units, maybe able to have fixed by a shop. Good Luck

2005 town and country mini van w/ farenheit dvd player


Some dealers installed a modulator for the radio; look under your driver's side dash to see if there is a small on/off toggle switch. If there is, flip it 'on', tune the radio to 89.1 and you should get audio.

If they haven't installed this, no problem. You can buy a modulator from most electronic stores that is used to play MP3 players through the car stereo; instead of an MP3 player, simply plug the cable into the headphone jack of your DVD player.

hi there
it shouldn't be to hard to install this but it does require cutting a hole in your interior part of roof........a install like this could take anywhere from 30 mins - 1hr for a installer to put it in. to do it yourself it could take 1-3hrs to complete (note for your first time doing this take your time and follow the install manual that will be provided)

Kenwood KVT-512 with bluetooth setup troubles


With my BMW I had to connect both the solid blue (pwr ant) wire and the blue with white stripe (p conn) to the solid blue wire from the factory harness.

It isn't obvious that either of these are needed as the KVT-512 has it's own power supply but the way most factory power amps are installed the power from the KVT-512 is not used and the car manufacturers power amp needs to be turned on.

If you are listening to the radio the pwr ant wire will turn on the power amp, this didn't seem obvious because the BMW doesn't have a power antenna. And when you are using the DVD player or the iPod connection you need the P Conn wire to turn on the car power amp as the ant pwr is disabled because you are no longer using the radio and Kenwood assumes you will not need the antenna so no power to this lead.

Solder all three wires together and you should have sound all the time.

I have a necvox overhead unit with dvd built in I seem to have lost all audio..


Sounds like the RCA's have come unplugged between your video source and the new head unit. If possible pull it apart to check the connection of the Red and White RCA's. Good luck
