If you have a DVD player AND an FM Modulator then this is not a OEM part, meaning it's not in your service manual. An Original Equipment Manufacturer part wouldn't require an FM modulator. This is an aftermarket part, hardwired into your vehicle and the fuse should be located under your dash near the main power harness coming from the ignition.
OK....Pull the dvd player out. Look to see if it has speaker wires coming off the back. If not, does it have rca plugs???? (red and white). if so then you are gonna need an amplifier to get sound. If it DOES hve speaker wires, chec to see if they are hooked up to the speakers in the vehicle.
Put a cd in the dvd player then tune to the channel and it should work, then try a dvd.
When dvd player does not boot up and display the Kia logo, try moving the door as the hinge turns on the screen and sometimes the connection in the hinge can play up a bit.
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.
I just solved this problem on my Ford Edge 2010. Start the dvd. Hit the FM button on the remote. It will pop up an FM radio frequency in the top left corner of the screen. For example, ours is 88.7. Tune the car radio to that frequency and the sound should come through the speakers. Hope it works for you.
Hi, The A7 has 3 sound modes. With the unit on press the speaker button and on the screen it will say either "Headphone sound only" or "Speaker sound enabled". Pressing the speaker button will toggle these modes back and forth. If you don't hear any sound when it says "Speaker sound enabled " it may be that it was wired using the FM Modulator, which means it uses the car speakers. For them to work, turn on your radio and tune it to 87.9 or 88.3. Good Luck!
I was told the in dash radio unit will not play mp3's. as far as the dvd player, if you have the entertainment system i can't say. I do have two solutions for you.
1) the in dash cd player (mine is a 6 disc cd player) will not play mp3's at 128 bit compression, but for some reason or another I burnt an mp3 disc using the 256 bit compression, still smaller than the standard mp3 comparable cd quality, and unknowingly tried it in the cd player. The nissan quest played it. So it sounds as if the cd player is picky about how low quality of an mp3. 128 is a common reasonable quality. However, I was able to squeeze about 15 tracks on a 256 bit mp3 disc.
2) the in car dvd unit. If your unit is of the standard type, under the seat or mounted elswhere in the car, you could replace it. Dvd players sell for around $125.00+ and will play everything under the sun. reconnecting is not the biggest challenge neither.
& 3) You could purchase an additional hardwired device which allows you to plug in any audio device and play the sound through the Nissans sound system. The device into plugs directly into your wiring loom behind your factory radio. The best part is that the nissan system is already set up to receive this device. It will play through the sat1 or sat2 buttons. I searched and purchased the device online.
i had installed that before learning of the mp3 deal.
well good luck.
We have a GMC Envoy which also does not allow us to play the sound from the dvd player through the car's speakers. Although we purchased the vehicle new with the dvd player already installed, it was installed by the dealer, making it after-market. I assume those that were installed in the factory work differently. Maybe this is the case with your's as well. Good luck!!
